Powerblock will not power pi4 from usb-C

I have setup the powerblock I got (I bought in March of this year), and if I try and power from the usb-c supplied on the Powerblock. Pi4 does not power up.
If I plug the power supply into the usb-c on the pi4, pi powers up fine and if I hit the switch, it does shutdown the OS as expected.
I am using a regular switch, but even not connected, or turned to the on position, still won't power Pi.
Can you show an image of your hardware setup?
Instead of using a switch you could try and only short-circuit the switch pins on the PowerBlock with, e.g., a jumper. That should turn in the Pi.
Does that change anything?
