the machines comes on, then it blinks till warmed up, and when I press the button for an espresso, it makes some noises, then nothing and it starts blinking again.  No water comes out, nothing.  It does feels like the machine is getting warm. I removed the filter part attached to the machine that has one screw in it, and washed it incase it was clogged, and tryed to run it without it on.. still nothing.  the water container lets water out when the little button is pushed and seems to be working. Any ideas? I'd love to get this up and running.

That is a combo coffee/espresso machine. Sadly, they do not make good espresso, none of the combo machines do.

It has some very bad reviews on Amazon, granted, we are not Amazon and expect more from a machine than most consumers do.

Is it still under warranty? I would contact the manufacturer but I suspect that if they no longer cover it, you may find that it is not worth the expense to repair. It may be a circuit board?

If it is out of warranty and still makes OK drip coffee, keep using it for that and consider upgrading to a better starter espresso machine. However, that will mandate a good espresso grinder and FRESH beans, nothing from the supermarket is fresh and little from the corner Starbucks is either.

Good espresso is a rabbit hole that gets very deep very fast.

Yeah, I understand that that aren't the best machines; however at this time and for the foreseeable future I wont be able to afford a decent espresso machine. I have a grinder that a friend gave me for christmas, and I generally make my coffee with my stovetop moka pot.  I ran across this machine for a whopping 9$ at a goodwill and decided it might be worth it. I have started tinkering on it, taking the back off and peeking around inside. I think circuit board like you mentioned or maybe the motor is the issue from the noises and lack of water leaving the reservoir, but really im just making an educated guess. Anyone have ideas/estimates how much it would cost to get it repaired?
