Yes - This is an easy (though not widely known) diy fix! Remove the cover of the faucet handle (may pop off if crystal type or use a screwdriver to remove the screws) inside there is a scald guard safety mechanism - using a flathead screwdriver, turn the guard some the left. There should be a guide so that you do not turn the water up too hot. If there is not, you may need to consult a plumber or supplier in order to adjust the hot to a moderate temperature.
Hope this helps! ;)

Most all shower valve's these days have anti-scald protection. There are 2 ways that this protection is accomplished; temperature control device or a pressure balance device.
If your's has a pressure balance device, both cold and hot water lines that supply your shower valve must be fully opened. If you only turned on one, water will not flow from the shower valve.
If both hot and cold supplies are fully opened and you soldered copper pipe to the shower valve, it is possible that excess soldered is was sucked into the valve and could be obstructing the valve's outlet.

if it is standard shower where you pull the knob up when water is running. the pull knob lifts a flap to shut off water to bottom faucet it proably has some buildup on the flap clean well with some clr or other calcium cleaner like it so the flap gets a clean seal on downspout

sometimes check the faucet screws they come loose or if they are old you might want to replace the whole diverter, take them to lowes or home depot and have them guys in the plumbing department hook you up. trust me you are opening a can of worms with rubber valve seats just get new ones. Make sure before pulling you cut off water supply to them.

SOURCE: I bought a tub/shower valve
it sounds like the tub filler itself. When you pull the knob up it's supposed to divert the water to the shower, if it's coming out both, I'd look at that piece, inexpensive and easy to replace
