Default Help with new kegerator!!

Hello. Need some help with kegerator setup. I just built my first one and am having issues with the pressure. The beer pours fine the first time but after 2-3 pours I notice the pressure drops to almost 0 and I have to readjust the setting. Any advice? Leak maybe? Although Im not new to drinking beer I am new with the kegerator setup. Surely this is not how its suppose to be. Its a brand new keg kit from beverage factory so I assumed everything would work fine when hooked up the first time. FYI, its a sixth barrel of blue moon and a 5 lb tank with a dual gauge. Thanks for any advice. I read a lot of really good info from this site while researching/building my kegerator.

If by "I notice the pressure drops to almost 0" means both gauges are reading 0, most likely you are out of CO2. If, otoh, the high pressure gauge is still reading something substantially higher than "zero", something else may be happening...

Close the valve to the keg after the regulator. Close the valve from the CO2 tank . Pull the pressure relief valve on the regulator to '0' the gauge. Keep the valve after the regulator closed, and open the valve from the CO2 tank. What pressure do you read?
