More boiler problems :(

Many thanks to those who responded to the previous thread, still got problems though...
I refilled the Saunier Duvall boiler, closed off the filling and failsafe valves, and bled the radiators again. The central heating pressure gauge on the boiler is now hovering just a shade above the 1 mark.
I think there's some sort of pressure problem though, the water doesn't seem to be getting moved around the system. The radiator nearest the boiler gets up a lukewarm temperature, I can feel a slight warmth from two others, and the radiators furthest away from the boiler are stone cold. Unfortunately these two are the living room and bedroom :( When I bled the radiators a trickle of water oozed out, every other time I've done it there's always been a bit more pressure and the water would jet out with about the same force as a squirt from a water pistol. The boiler itself is acting wierd. It's too quiet, there used to be a rhythmic sound to it, hard to describe, but you could tell it was working, now it's silent most of the time. The burners don't ignite for long either, 5 to 10 seconds every 15 minutes or so. I've tried all the settings I can think of, from the summertime hot-water only all the way to get-me-through-the-nuclear-winter full monty. Nothing :( On max settings the temperature gauge rises to around 50 degrees C, when it was working it used to get up to 70 degrees.
Is there anything more I can try ?

There could air in the boiler. There may be some way of bleeding the boiler itself. Some combis have an automatic bleed valve. See installation/user manual. Another possibility is the pump has locked due to running dry. There is a standard procedure to try to free it. Worst case is that something has been damaged by trying to run the system without sufficient water

Yeah I'm thinking that myself. Any idea what the standard procedure to unlock the pump would be ? I've only got a single sheet of user documentation that doesn't go much beyond tic-tac-toe. It's an SD620F if anyone knows it ?
Would shutting it down completely and restarting help free the pump ?
