Yes, yo can repair it. there is compound problem with the unit. Please use this advice for future to save yourself time and money.
Before you store any painting equipment for longer than few days:
1. Strip equipment to base pieces,
2. Clean them with paint stripper
3. Wash them in water and then dry them through
4. Wash them in solvent, dry them, put vaseline on rubbing parts
5. Store in dust protecting rags or bags
You just used your gun without cleaning it, that was part of the problem, gqasket on the bottom of the piston was weakened by paint and two years of storage, you did not strain paint, you just used it directly from the can. chunky bit from the can (there are always bits forming around the toip and sides of the can) clogged piston, giving impression that there is no paint, you incresed the pressure and gasket give up on you...
Just follow advice, clean the gun, put it to pieces, find which gasket (I suspected that this one will be from the bottom of the piston), most of hardware stores have spares for these guns, buy exactly same dimension, put gun back together and this should solve your problem.
I do that sort of the "surgery" on the tble with several layers of old newspapers under and last laer butchers paper, I put my pieces in order in which i removed them so I can easy put them back together. Always strain paint, always clean gun...
Hope this will help solve your problem :-)

One cause for this is that one or both of the check balls in the piston are frozen in place. This can be caused by drying paint on the check balls or seats or, as is the case many times in our area, if you did clean the machine well with water without any airless conditioner in it, sometimes the water dries and leave behind minerals that 'lock' the check balls in the seats. Set the machine up in water and turn it on to prime. Using a hammer hit the pump head where the piston is working fairly hard. You are trying not to break anything but knock the check balls loose. If they come loose and water starts cycling through the system, let run a while to wash anything out before switching to paint. If this doesn't work, you may have to take the head apart to see why the check balls won't free up. It could be because of peices of dried paint that won't come loose by themselves.
