Hi I was wondering if anyone can help me. My X7 phenom was leaking from the front barrel. I got it brand new straight out of the box. At first when i connected my Co2 to the marker it fired just fine in semi auto, but when I use full auto thats when it started leaking. It was a continuous leak and the only way to stop it is to unscrew the Co2 tank from the marker.  Called tippmann and they said to send it back.

  The 2 year warranty is great and all but to send it back cost money, $22 dollar 3day shipping USPS. I'm just fustrated that I have a defective product.  So I sent it and when I recieved it back the x7 phenom had stop leaking. But another problem came up. Now the marker is not responding to full auto anymore. I keep on pressing the trigger 3 times and hold NOTHING and thats with a new battery. I tried resetting the the chip and still it won't respond. When I put the marker back on to semi auto and when I  pull the trigger quickly about 4-7 times and after that the marker just squirk out a burst of Co2. Its like having a marker that shoots out snow. I was so upset and I called tippmann about it, and guess what they say again "Send it back in". Thats crazy! I already spent $22 dollar on the first shipping and now another $22 dollar again? I already spent $400 dollar on the marker itself.
 Later the next day I tried it again to see if the problem would go away and I'm thinking that the Co2 was freezing up the spool valve or the chip itself, but when I pull the trigger it was working fine again. I thought to myself "What the heck is going on" and this is near christmas day so I decided not to send it back yet cause its going to be a long wait to send it to them and to get it back. So I went woodsballing with my friends and as I was playing the marker was also doing the same problems again. Fired a couple shot in semi auto and after that it stall and won't fire or a guss of Co2 comes out. Full auto does the same thing, squirt out crispy icy Co2. I'm going to called them back on monday and see if tippmann can help me again. I had also sent them out an email last week with a sample video of the marker doing those problems I had described, but I have not recieved any response from tippmann yet. I might think about posting it up on Youtube and let you guys see it for yourself. I'm pretty sure someone out there have had the same problem like mine, and I know that your just as upset as I am, and I have been using my A5 without any problems for years.
Update: here is a video link to youtube:
