Ok, so heres the deal. I bought a used DM8 off ebay and it just arrived today. When I screwed in my airtank, put my hopper on and loaded in some balls to go out and test it, and when I turned it on the flashing green light appeared. Which means that the eyes are malfunctioning. So I unloaded my hopper and degassed the DM8 and proceded to read the manual which said that there was a problem with the eyes. I took out the ball detent/plastic thing (I cant recall the name) cleaned it, and then cleaned the eyes. I then opened the grip and put in a new nine volt battery and tried it again, this time both with the eyes on and off. Both times I tried to fire it, nothing happened, not even the sound of a dry fire. Just some clicking noise's from my pulling of the trigger. I removed my hopper and dry fired it with no paintball in the breech. The bolt did not move forward at all. I then turned the LPR all the way down and then set it to the factory preset and still it didnt fire.

I have no lube or oil with me so I have not done any matinince on it. I also do not know the last time it was cleaned or lubed scince I bought it used. Any help will be appreciated.

Are you sure the regulator is on? If it is, send it back and leave bad feedback.

When you say "regulator" you mean the Hyper 3 regulator is attached and the macro line is connected? Then yes it is on, with on meaning its attached to the marker body.

edit: the only thing thats at factory setting right now is the LPR. I'm going to reset it all to factory tomorrow and lube all the o-rings and the bolt and make sure the bolt stick setting is on, and check everything else you mentioned.

I agree with Kid. If the eyes are off and there is a new fresh battery in it then it's air starvation.

I'm imediately thinking the dwell is way too low.

Check the lpr is turned at least 2.5 out. Set Dwell to 18. Turn the main reg (hyper3) in. Insert tank and turn the ASA on.

Turn the marker on and eyes off. Slowly turn the main reg on (out) and the bolt should start to cycle.

Yes, check that the secondary on/off is on. Below the barrel.
