Ryobi ES30 Touch Start won't start

I have a Ryobi touch start string trimmer. I was trimming the lawn and it just died. acted strange like it was out of gas. Well the fuel was very low , so I filled the tank and it won't start. Getting spark, checked that. acts like its not DRAWING any fuel. I whipped out my trusty seringe and filled it with fresh gas. Injected a little gas into the carb and it still won't start. Today I went out there and tried to start it again and it started briefly. Each time I tried to start it, it fired up for a little shorter time.

What to do next?

Check for broken fuel lines, cracked primer bulb, and possibly disassemble and clean the carb if the trimmer is worth the expense and effort.
