Blocked Marzocchi Bomber XC600 TST2... Need some help!!

Hello All

A cousin of mine has a 2007 Mondraker foxy with a Marzocchi Bomber XC600 TST2 fork that seems to be locked, giving only about 15 to 20mm of stroke, independently of the TST lever position.
We emptied the air chamber and moved the TST and rebound lever back and forward several times, but still there was no movement. I suspect the locking mechanism may be stuck or broken, but I’m no expert.
Is there any quick fix or does it involve servicing?
It seems these forks don't have a good reputation concerning reliability, but a new one is out of question right now.
I appreciate any help or tips.

    Once the TST Marzocchis get like this you may as well bin them. Very few are still alive, they're possibly the least reliable fork ever made.
    They were so bad that TF Tuned and Mojo refused to service them just incase they coincidentally died just after the service.
