No Water in Shower

My husband and I just changed out our galvanized pipes to copper and turned on the water. Everything is working except the shower. We cleaned out any debris in the shower head and drain, but still no luck. Can anyone provide some possible causes of this problem?

Crud has gotten into the guts of the mixer valve----You are going to have to pull the cartridge

And flush out the valve body----might need a new cartridge ,too.

If you don't know the brand--post a picture or two---plenty of plumbers here--someone will identify it and walk you through the job.---Mike----

Is there no water at all or just dripping?
