What were the other markers that the tank worked on? What repairs did you have done to the tank? Did the problems start before or after the repairs?

Here's an interesting review of this MFR's tanks:

http://www.pbnation.com/reviews/products/234/pure_energy_48c i_hp_tank/&page=1#review_1448

"I have 60 of these."

"The fill nipple o-ring is horrible, and is going to drive me insane. I replace about 20 of these a week. My local pure energy sales rep makes me pay for the parts. Seriously, this might have one of the worst regulators around, but it's cheap, so it'll never go away."

It arrived broken from the retailer (was leaking).  Someone swapped the fill nipple o-ring and did something else that took about 10 minutes (but I don't remember what).  It worked for one game before it went again and I had to send it to the MFR for repair.   I haven't been able to use my A5 since I got my tank back, but I did totally strip the marker while the tank was out so I can't be sure I didn't screw my marker up.

I'll find out what the marker I borrowed was.
