Call Dye/Proto they will sometimes give you a deal on parts or even give you a free part from time to time. They stand by their products and have excellent customer service. Also First.

You're sure that the board and other electronic components are working properly?

You can buy one of these and just use the coil as a replacement. They are interchangeable. I might have spare coils, but I'll need to check my box. Let me know if you have any interest in selling the solenoid/parts.

I looked at that Humphrey HEB but I'm not entirely certain the pilot valve is configured the same was the the HEB in the PMR (so that's why I didn't suggest it.)

It doesn't help that ASP's 101w conversion page leads nowhere :P

The HEB and HEA series all have interchangeable coils. ZDSPB has a good overview of Humphrey solenoids.

Now THAT is a very useful link.

The next valve that was developed is the Humphrey HEA and HEB series, which are identical except the A is 4-way and B is 3-way. Of a few valves that are used in the industry, the "F" and "A" in HEA10F5-GL and HEA10A5-GL changes the method for mounting the solenoid, either manifold base-mount or threaded ports respectively. This means the solenoids are identical except for the method by which they attach to the pressurized components in the marker.

Before you replace the solenoid, I would try connecting the wire leads directly to a 9v battery. That way you can be 100% sure there is something wrong with the solenoid and not some kind of connection or board problem. If it doesn't work, then it's not like you are any worse off. If it does work, then re-solding the solenoid leads is not as big a deal compared to buying a new solenoid. It sounds like it probably is your solenoid, but since we're talking about a $50-$100 replacement part, it's probably worth it to check.

Possibly if it's under warranty. If you are going to try and go that route, do it before you do anything to the gun or solenoid.
