Default Help! Trying to fill 1st keg and getting no pressue.

I got my CO2 tank filled a couple hours ago, it's showing 900 psi internal. But when I hook the hose up to the keg (I am hooking it up into the IN) I get nothing. I tried just turning on the gas and pushing down on the pin, and still nothing. The out on the keg works fine. I sanitized and managed to create a syphon to get the water out.
So what do I do?

Check the regulator adjuster (screw). It maybe set to 0.

When you say you pushed down on the pin are you talking about the pressure release valve on the keg?

Have you taken the keg apart and cleaned everything up? How do all the o-rings look? Anything dried out or cracked?

Do you have some keg lube?
