My mothers Gaggia Titanium acts as if it is going to dispence coffee.
It goes through the process, then does not produce any coffee. We have tried to rise and clean the machine, we get hot water and steam from the
tube for latte's but no espressos or cups of coffee
Ok, If you pull out the waste water tray and bean tray, along with the brew unit ( by pushing the lever that says push) turn the brew unit upside down and you will see a layer of waste coffee grinds on a circular metal plate, just rinse it under a cold tap, dry it off and reassemble
Also you may want to try rinsing other parts of the brew unit and give it a general clean if there are any other build-ups of coffee grinds :)

AN EXPENSIVE ELECRONIC MACHINE LIKE THIS ONE IS REQUIRED TO BE PLUGGED IN INTO A DEDICATED OUTLET WITH ITS OWN CIRCUIT. BROWN-OUTS, SPIKES, UNDER-VOLTAGES COMMONLY PRESENT IN ANY HOUSE WOULD CERTAINLY AFFECT THE MACHINE SENSITIVE POWER SUPPPLY AND ONCE IT FAILS THEN THE MOTHER BOARD , TOO.
First question:Are the rest of the machine still working correctly? Second question:How was the waterflow before descalling?
Here are short description on how most of these machines work.
It will have a cold water reservoir for filling with cold water with some sort of water full sensor, it will then be followed with a high pressure pump.which are used to fill the boiler.After the boiler it will then go out to your to disspencers.in your case the steamer and one for coffee.The outlet at the boiler will propably be split in two by using valves.
To come back to your problem i assume it had a waterflow probleme before you descalled.When you are descaling your machine their are some times pieces of scale that is not propably disolved by the descaling process which will get stuck in the pipe work acting as a valve causing waterflow problemes.
The other probleme might be that your water dispencers valve might be faulty either by a poor supply(power) or the sollenoid is starting to size up.
Just switch of the machine when taking of any covers you are working with water and electricity which do not mix well
