Pilot light wont light?

Hi got a glow worm fuelsaver mk2 and I can't get the pilot light to come back on. I've removed the small panel and found the 2 buttons that would turn the pilot light and turned in a variety of combinations, but it still won't light and advise or guidance?

If you are getting a small flame, then make sure you are holding the pilot button down log enough to charge the thermocouple, some may take up to 20 seconds. if after this amount of time it does not stay lit then the thermocouple may need replacing or a good service will be required due to a blockage in the pilot head which is causing the pilot light to miss the thermocouple.
