try refilling it, if you run the pressure down too far there is not enough to keep the valve closed so they dump all the remaining air

It just needs a good blast of air, is there a restrictor in the filler, sometimes there is one fitted. Rog

Should be between dive bottle fitting and filler, it slows the air and can sometimes stop you giving an initial quick blast to close firing valve. Rog

Cock it, or the hammer will keep firing valve from shutting. Rog
