No power out on FT8

I have been trying to get FT8 up and running on my 6500 for several days now.  I have checked several U tube videos and online operating manuals.  It appears everything is set up correctly.  Time is synced with WWV.  I am decoding and showing decoded signals all OK.  When I try and send a CQ or answer someone elses CQ, I get no response.  I'm showing no RF output on DIGU.  I'm showing 95 watts out on 20 meters on CW. When I switch over to DIGU and hit tune,  I am showing the red lite comes on and there is a signal on the transmitter freq.  But no RF output.  I would greatly appreciate someone getting on the phone with me and possibly pull up the "team viewer" and get me straightened out.

Thanks

Both DAX buttons are on for channel one or slice A.  The DAX button on the Mike control was NOT selected.  When I selected it it turned blue and I now have power out with the indications.

Thanks gentlemen.
That fixed it.   Now to try and make a QSO.
