Just an addendum to the other comments.
Those numbered valves can be unscrewed from the top without any water getting out as they just push on a pin

Hopefully, the pin is moving.
Just check the valve on the other end and see if that valve is open too!

5 is hotter so turn it towards 5.

5 is hotter so turn it towards 5.

But the 5 is on both sides ... if I turn it all the way left it shows 2 ... if I turn it all the way right it shows ... 2 ...

Soo I don't know which way is to turn it hot and which to turn it to cold ...
#3
clockwise - hot
#4
Mine start 1 on the left and 5 on the right.
#5
Turn it to five and wait five minutes.
If it's cold try something different?
#6
make sure the lock shield is open
#7

clockwise - hot

Nice try
#8
anti clockwise that is like opening a tap.. This makes hot water flow through it in full flow. consider it is a tap into the radiator.

Oh my god. Is there any reason at all why you can just turn it one way and see if it goes hot? If it doesn't, it's a pretty safe bet that turning it the other way will make it go hot. A bit like a light switch. Do you struggle with those too?

Righty (clockwise) tighty (off),
Lefty (anti-cloxckwise) loosey (on)
