Please help my filter stopped working

I have a 30g saltautolinker.com autolinking image water tank. Marineland canister filter, not sure of the model. Not a c-360 the next one down I think. I just did a water change and replaced my filters and normally soon as I reattach the lid it starts sucking and I plug it in and off it goes. Now it just sits there.

Did you fill the canister cavity before you reinstalled the cover? Also, did you do a bump start? My Eheim recommends I top off the canister and then short cycle the motor to start the siphon, then let gravity do most of the work filling the lines.
