Co2 is fine on Tippmanns. My first guess would be that there is a problem with the CO2 tank. Does it have an On/Off on it? I'd try another tank sometimes the pins on them are too short and don't get depressed enough when they are screwed onto the marker.

Did you try re-filling the HPA tank and trying that? You can refill it at your local sports store or paintball field for a couple bucks. See if the HPA tank works, if so it's the CO2 tank.
