Question about Dewalt Tools & Hardware - Others
That symptom usually indicates a low voltage issue - not sure how the adapter may affect this, I've never run them with a 20v battery.
Try it with a standard 18v and see if you have the same issue - please comment back with the results, I'm curious.

SOURCE: D51844 Won't Fire Nails
The Dewalt D51844 uses a full round head 20 degree nail. Sometimes the generic brand nails are not made exactly to the stated degree. They do this so their nails will work on a variety of nailers. Best to check the nails angle in relation to the angle of your nailer. Place a strip of nails on the outside of the rail. Align the heads of the nails to a convenient straight edge on the rail then check that the head and shaft of the first nail is aligned with the barrel. If the lower part of the nail projects out further than the head, then the driver will miss the head. If the head of the first nail appears close enough to barrell for the driver to hit it then place a new strip of nails into the mag and slide the pusher foward. Fire one nail, if success, remove the nails from the mag and check if the plastic holding the nails together is projecting in front of the first nail. Sometimes the plastic is not right, too stiff, and will not let the next nail align with the barrell. If the next nail appears ready and slides forward then the driver may not be going all the way up after shot. Check by inserting a metal rod into barrell and push driver up till it stops. If the driver is in the uppermost position, then most likely brand of nails. Use Dewalt nail. Good Luck

The dial on the top of the gun is most likely the depth adjustment for the nails, this should solve the driver damaging the work piece. Make sure the nails are the correct guage for the nailer you have.

SOURCE: nail gun wont fire
First - the air pressure has to be high enough - check the regulator on the tank to make sure it is delivering in excess of 60-70 psi (which I am sure you have already done).
If you have dry fired these guns (i.e. shot them off with no nails in them while you were lubricating them maybe) the mechanism inside could be damaged. I had that happen to one of my nailers (same brand). That was when I learned not to dry fire them...
Since both of them are not working though I would be more inclined to look at the air supply first.
