I found that if the machine has sat for a while (years in my case) just using the steam wand WILL NOT WORK.  I followed the suggestion of forcing water into the pick up tube that sucks out of the water tank.  I used one of those injectors (like a big hypodermic) for flavoring meat.   Worked right away and I’m pulling pretty good shots already.  Good thing since my Rancilio Sylvia just bit the dust after 20+ years.  Got the Starbucks machine a long time ago at a thrift store for $50.00.  Oh did I mention it was virtually brand new?  Thank you IFIXIT people!
