You probably have some dirt/junk inside your solenoid. Page 7 of the Ion manual describes how to take it apart and clean it.

"Have to Spend"?

What kind of board are you looking at? Even the APE Rampage which is arguably the best and most feature laiden board on the market only runs $100. Other aftermarket boards are less. I bought a used stock board off ebay for only $15 plus shipping.

I was thinking of getting the V bord, but it's way too expensive.

Make sure that all the hoses are incorrectly and screwed in all the way. Also relube and change the orings on your bolt.

did you lube the big o-ring on the hollow point bolt stock? How generously did you lube it?

these things are great when you get them to work, but the o-ring it comes with is just a tad too small, because they assume people will lube the crap out of it, so put some lube on the stalk o-ring, and then try again.

Ok- if the Ion is leaking down the barrel, then you most likely have an issue with the bolt. I use an L7 and am not very familiar with the Hollowpoint, so I'll just run through what I know/heard.
1) Make sure the bolt stop is installed correctly- if it isn't, it could cause air to leak down the front of the barrel.
2) Check the middle hose (connected to the QEV)- if it isn't pushed all the way in, then not enough pressure can build up to push the bolt back all the way.
3) Make sure the screw on the bolt stalk is properly tightened. In some cases, it will loosen and cause leaks.
4) The usual o-ring response... check any o-rings on the bolt, stalk, and bolt stop for scratches/tears, then clean and re-lube them.
Although the solenoid could be causing the problem, I personally find it unlikely because the air should normally fill the front chamber first, and only fill the firing can when the trigger is pressed. If the solenoid were dirty, then (correct me if I'm wrong) there should be issues after you fire the first shot- not before.

Alright the bolt stock is the plastic peace that screws into the back of the chamber right, but to get that screwed in tightly i had to hold it with a wrench wich caused the peice to get scratched. if i new how to put pics up i would.

To keep from scratching parts with a wrench, put a piece of cloth between the object and the wrench. It still can be tighten that way but it prevents it from scratching.

And to upload pics, when you're in the replying form, look right below the text box to the rectangle that is about the post option boxes and you'll see the label of "Attachments".
Simply click the browse link, find your pic file on your computer, and hit upload. Depending on how fast your internet is will depend the time it takes to upload. when its uploaded, it'll enter a script something like this:
usually its like a bunch of numbers or something else. Then simply highlight that full script, cut it, and paste it to wear you want it to show the picture in the post.

I'm assuming the scratches aren't all that bad- if that is the case, it shouldn't create any issues and the o-rings will keep the air where it should be. If they are bad and the o-rings pass over the area, then it may create a very small leak or scratch the o-rings (a larger problem).
