Problems with using compressed air

Just got a 68/4500 pure energy tank and filled it up to 4000psi. We went to shoot it and it shot about 2-3 times then uncocked my gun and the samething happened to my friends only his didnt uncock it just stopped turning the cyclone feed. Anyone have any input on this?

Figured it out!!! We were overtightening the valve on the remote coil causing the valve to close.

You would think remotes would come w/instructions warning against over tightening the valve...
