New user here.  Got all 6 mics and 6 instruments to work, faders, etc.  all good.

The problem, no meter level indication seen on Main left side and the right side the levels were very low (2 bars).

I would be grateful for any direction and guidance.  Again, I am new to mixers, sound engineering, etc.

You need to ensure that you have correctly gain staged the inputs for the outputs and then onto your speakers etc. If may be required to turn the speakers down to be able to have the output of the desk run hotter.

Please refer to Page 4 of the manual in the following link that describes the gain staging for your mixer.
