Have you pressed the little green or black reserve tank button on the bottom of the nib???
You have a full reserve tank.
Which is why you can't get rid of the ink.
Half fill the piston....press the reserve button, shake, twist out the nib...does twist out just like a Pelikan...
run water over it.
Put the the nib back on...press the reserve tank button back up into the pen....when you crank the piston all the way down, it pushes out the reserve button....so don't push the piston all the way down...right now.
After you have the ink out of the reserve tank, crank the piston all the way down, that loads the reserve tank.
You get 1-3 pages of writing when you run out of ink, and press the reserve button on the bottom of your nib.
Picture of pen and cap top will help me tell you which Geha you have.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.
