I received a Nuova simonelli MAC digit out of a storage bin and would love some help diagnosing it looks to have been in storage for a while anyway.
I pluged it up and hooked up the water line the boiler heats up after turning on and off several times and the water is halfway up the view tube. once heated nothing happens when the steam wand is pulled or the hot water is pulled. when you try and pull a shot the button lights up for a second and then goes out and the last button on the right and side starts blinking. so it seams that no water or steam is getting to the top of the machine.

It is very hard to troubleshot over the net. You are going to go system by system through the machine. Buying a long in storage machine can be a great buy but sometimes, a lot of work on your part may be needed. Then there may have been problems before it went into storage and lack of use may have added to them.
