spyder tl wont fire. has air and slide goes forward, just no air

i am having a problem with my spyder tl. i'm new to paintball and this forum so sorry if i should have posted this else ware.
My first problem is i bought this marker used off ebay. now that i have it, i screwed the tank on, can hear the air fill the line, pull back the slide, pull the trigger, and nothing. the slide goes forward, but there is no air movement. no air escaping or leaking. cock it and fire it no problem. the slide moves really smooth, just no air??? i talked to the seller and he said it worked fine a couple weeks before he sent it to me. i took the 20oz tank and got it filled, still nothing. i asked if they work on markers but no, they just sell them and fill tanks. there is no one withing 2 hours that works on or will look at a spyder. i have taken this thing apart according to the diagram i found online, and everything appears to be there. all the o-rings look good. any help would be great. thanks

or it just needs some oil, if the hammer cant slide forward fast enough it will not be able to open the valve. get some paintball specific oil put a few drops in the ASA (where you screw the tank into) and dry fire the marker a dozen times, if it is not firing fine by the end of that then you have other issues
