Sounds like a solenoid problem. An electrical valve that opens to allow water into the tray(s), then closes when they are full (usually by a timer). The valve may be defective or the control circuit for the valve. A plugged filter could cause symptoms like this too, but you will usually have some water coming out into the trays.
But with no water and the fact that you had to apply power before water flowed into the tray, then it is the solenoid.....

When you say you checked the Valve, did you check the Supply valve that feeds water to the fridge, or the Solenouid valve that usually casues this problem. Unplug your Fridge and roll it away from the wall. Remove the rear access panel and trace the water supply tubing to the solenoid valve. Lots of time the valve is bad. You can get a replacement Solenoid. at any Appliance part store, or online at www.repairclinic.com.
If you did check that. You can get a coupling that will adapt from the water supply directly to the line coming from the solenouid to pressure up and see if you actually have a flow problem between the solenoid valve and ice tray.
Hope this is helpful to you. Good Day
