    Have new talon, tried it out today and the paint stopped flowing. cleaned off the tip of the needle and tried again. After a few sprays the paint stopped again. Using water based acrylic, took brush apart, all seems ok. Not sure what's going on.

    Hi ,Dave G, DaveG here - when you say the paint stopped spraying, you mean jut the paint stopped, but air kept on keeping on? You most probably need to reduce, or thin the paint you are using. Sounds like what would be called "tip dry".

    According to shout box it’s not pushing paint or air.

    So we need more defined info.
    What paint,
    what reduction
    What psi (with air on)
    What needle

    Yeah I'm a newbie, sorry for putting the info in the wrong place. Anyway after looking at a video on the talon, I believe I'm having a trigger problem. I'm going to take the airbrush apart again and check.

    If you are using a quick disconnect, it could be that it is over-tightened, and the o-ring is impeding air flow. Aside form that, it would unusual for there to be any issue with the trigger. There is one o-ring on the valve stem, and sometimes they can roll up and out of place, but that is not a common issue.
