I have the same model implant that you have. I got mine about 8 months ago. I have had some trouble with the pump and for a while was not getting fully hard.

When I pressed the bulb from the front and back I could pump up but at some point couldn't get any more fluid to go in. The bulb would press easily enough but no more inflation happened. I asked my doctor about it and he said that it wasn't working right and was going to do a replacement.

However, I found out that if I pressed the bulb from the sides it would pump up more and I would get much harder.

To be clear, the "front and back" would be pressing the bulb on the same side the deflate button is on and opposite that side. I don't think I was hitting the deflate button while pumping, but it just wouldn't work right.

I don't know if this will help. I wish I had gone to my doctor to look into this much earlier, and I suggest you see yours.
