I'm assuming you've turned on the radiator!!!!!

If it's got a thermostatic valve, the pin may be stuck down, otherwise the chances are the pipework leading to the radiator is airlocked - can be fiddly to remove, but try switching all other radiators and hw off. without more info on your sys I can't help much more!
