Trouble connecting computer to x carve machine

I just finished assembly on the x-carve 1000. I connected my mac laptop to the x controller and turned everything on. The fan runs on the x-controller but that’s it. Nothing else happens. The green power light doesn’t even come on. Anyone else experience this problem? Thank you

Is your E-stop button pulled out? You have to twist in the direction of the arrows and pull out, you’ll hear it pop. You can test if it’s already out by trying to push it - it should pop when going in, too.

That was it. Thank you!
