I had some trouble with a couple of older ones I had. I bought a bottle of refresher (the kind you use on old ink pads). I think it was made by Ranger when I bought it but other companies make it I am sure. First I sprayed the nib and let it rest for about an hour. That seemed to loosen up the ink on a couple. The worst ones were pretty dry so I took the top end of the pen off and used a syringe to inject about 8 drops down the ink tube. Then I took a long darning needle and gave it a little stir and let it sit for about a week. 3 out of the 4 pens are working just fine now. I try to write with them at least once a week just to keep the ink flowing. Hope this helps.
