Slant/Fin Victory gas fired V90EP boiler problem

Pilot light won't ignite (message on top of unit indicates to not attempt to light pilot as is is ignited on), 0 psi registering, Has power and gas to it. Circuit breaker on. Bathrooms with hot to cold water in tubs, showers and faucets. Sinks in kitchen and laundry have hot water. Any help appreciated in advance!

Welcome to the forums.

The exact model number is needed for service help.
Locate the ID tag on the boiler and post the model.
I'm looking at a Victory VHS-90 manual. Not sure if it's the same.
This boiler is draft induced on a call for heat followed by an electronic spark ignited pilot.

If you have DHW (domestic hot water) then you must have a separate water heater.
That means the boiler is used for heating only.
Or you have a separate how water tank that currently has hot water but will run out soon.

0 psi is concerning. Some pictures would be helpful.... How to insert pictures.

I there, I have the same problem, although it may be more intermittent. Last night we ran out of hot water, checked and the boiler seemed to be on, but no pilot. No heat or hot water. This morning it was working. Was searching for the manual but can't find. Thinking maybe I sensor was dusty or something. We keep kitty litter in the same room. The Boiler is a Stant/Fin Victory V-90 EP for natural gas. While it's working now, I'd like to know if I should clean something/

Welcome to the forums.

Is that an intermittent spark lit pilot light ?
If yes... you need to have the pilot assembly serviced.
That could be just cleaning the flame sense/spark rod or possibly plugged orifice.

Has the boiler been serviced recently ?
It should be done every couple of years.
