Ez test. With nails removed, and door open driver should be at top of cylinder. If driver is down replace piston oring. If driver is up, lightly strike nose of gun against softwood. The driver should stay at top. If driver drops with light tap replace piston oring. If driver stays at top dry fire the nailer against softwood. The driver should hit the softwood leaving a mark and return to top. If driver stays down or does not travel all the way up pull the cylinder and make sure checkband is installed. Checkband is oring or rubber band covering series of holes on lower part of cylinder. Good luck

Several conditions will cause driver not to return to top of cylinder. The driver oring should not be too tight nor too loose. It should take very little effort to push the driver back up. If hard to push back up, replace the oring or lube. Make sure that the driver is not bent and binding in the housing. Finally, there is a check band or oring installed on the lower part or the cylinder. Remove the head and pull out the cylinder. Look for a series of small holes drilled into the cylinder. These small holes should be covered by a snug fitting oring or a band made of rubber. You will usually find the old part within the space. Replace with anything that fits. If the check band was in place and the driver will still not return, most likely air is leaking down thru the nose of the gun past the driver seal. Easy fix, make a seal out of inner tube material and cut hole for driver so that the seal fits snuggly around the driver. This seal will increase the air pressure in the lower part of the gun and push the driver up. Good luck

make sure that the feeder spring is not broken this stops nails or can jam them or cause them to skip. Some nail gun types work bette if you buy their brand of nails, but it could possibly just be dirty or maybe check the nail size. You should also have a way to adjust how far your nails are in the bucket where you put your nails, it should go up or down by spining it.

I have seen this on dewalt nailers also, caused by trigger valve worn. on Bostitch nailer part # tva6 remove roll pins retaining trigger and trigger valve. one roll pin for trigger and one or two for valve. With pins removed apply air pressure to gun popping out the valve. Use glove or folded-up shop rag to catch the valve as I pops out. Be sure to reduce air pressure as it could come out with force. Good luck

prolly clogged, buy a rebuild kit and use it making sure all parts are totally clean before reassembly. in the future be sure to drain your compressor at least daily after use (more on wet or humid days) to avoid this

You have a bad fuel injector or spark plug. Run a fuel system cleaner through your car and check the plugs for wear.

That model may not be designed for that length nail. Check with your local supplier.

Try to locate a "rebuild kit" from a parts store or online. When you locate one, ask if it includes the complete instructions to install the kit. I have rebuilt several dozen, and kits have an instruction sheet.
Be blessed.

Dewalt nailers use some orings that are made of vinyl (clear to yellow in color instead of buna or viton). These orings fail by getting soft and sticky. The gun may not leak but will not work correctly. The trigger should fire the gun when depressed about 1/2 way in. The oring repair kit has the same orings. I use generic orings in the gun to solve the problem. There are two orings inside the gun that should be changed and at least two on the trigger valve stem. In time the gun may fire a nail when you connect the hose. Check the internet for recall on some of these guns. The orings in the gun that should be replace make contact between the white cylinder spacer and the cylinder (smaller is standard oring # 141 the larger is 74.4mm x 3.1mm). The two rings on the trigger stem are 2mm x 1.5mm . If you do not have a source for orings then just replace the trigger valve. You also might try setting the depth adjustment all the way down. Good luck.
