SOURCE: Wagner Paint crew - No pressure
In order of likelyhood:
1. There is an inlet valve where the paint first enters from the hopper. With the machine off, you can poke your finger all the way down the hole. It's spring loaded and will depress abouta quarter inch. If the inlet valve is stuck no paint will pump in PRIME or SPRAY position.
2. In SPRAY position. Motor runs for a few seconds then turns off. This means the pump is working. When you pull the trigger, if you get poor pressure, the problem is in the gun. Unscrew the handle and remove the filter. Clean out everything you can, and replace filter if necessary. Also try turning the spray nozzle 180 degrees and spray to clear if necessary.
there are more things that can go wrong, but these are the most likely.

SOURCE: How to remove the Prime/Spray
You can unscrew it without removing the plastic part - just use thin vice grips and get a piece of the metal nut, unscrew down (counter clockwise) and it should come off with average pressure. I checked mine, not much to go wrong there, then screwed back in. I have similar problem with pressure, it is likely a worn O ring. Seems to be in the outlet valve as I replaced some of the inlet valve rings and same effect. Research says the outlet valve is the problem if paint comes out of the squeezed nozzel while in Prime mode, which mine does, and is likely not building the pressure as some paint is flowing back through the worn outlet parts.

SOURCE: In trying to spray oil
How does it spray if you dump the paint out and put paint thinner in the cup? If it sprays paint thinnner, but not the paint, your paint is too thick. Thin it down by 25% and try a little. Keep adding thinner until the paint sprays out of the gun in an acceptable manner. Your gun probably has a 1.1,or 1.4 fluid tip. this is for spraying lacquers or automotive paints that are very thin. to spray oil based paint, your would need a 2.0 or 2.5 or bigger. not really what this gun was made to spray.

Testimonial: "Thank you. It does spray thinner normally...I guess I just didn't add enough thinner to the paint, I'll get a larger nozzle too."
There are two check balls in the pump that make it work. If either are blocked or stuck it will do what your are stating. Tapping the pump with a hammer will work to free check balls that are stuck to their seat by corrosion but will do nothing to remove paint chips or dried paint that prevent them from working properly. You can try forcing water throught he pump while it's running with a garden hose to see if that will clear any problems. If that doesn't do it you will have to disassemble the pump to clear anything that's keeping it from working. If you're familiar with the workings of a paint pump, it's not hard but be careful not to damage the packings, piston or cylinder.
