Dispensing Failed- Saeco Talea Ring Plus

I have a Saeco Talea Ring Plus espresso maker. The error message I'm getting is "Dispensing failed". I have cleaned the brew group, descaled the machine, and generally fiddled around with the brew group. It grinds beans, pre-brews and then it's as if no water is getting through the circuits. Nothing comes out the spout and the damp grounds are dispensed into the hopper. Water is not leaking and water comes out the steam/water wand without any difficulty. Any suggestions???
Thanks in advance!

    Thank you! I also decreased the dose and all is well. For future reference where is the screen and is it accessible for cleaning? Once again, thank you very much.

Try adjusting the grind four numbers coarser and brew a coffee, if you are getting the same result then the brew unit is clogged and the screen needs to be cleaned.

    The screen is in the brew unit, if you pull out the unit and turn it around and look at the big red gasket, just below that is the screen and screw.

Saeco Talea Ring Plus

ok with a machine you have already for a while :
Putt descaling solution in the machine. unplu the machine and open the watere valve. Aftre about 2 days it should have desolved.

BUT>>>>>>>>>> what also can be is that the valve on the bottom of the water tank is not working.
Fill it a little and wiggle the valve until water comes out and than try again.

Priming normally goes.

Water in tank. push water button and open valve.
