Sounds like you let it run out of fluid.
I did the same thing, left the line dripping while I changed the cylinder.
I just leveled the cylinder, put the vacuum bleeder on it, and let it suck fill.
You can do the same thing with your syringe. Level the cylinder, what that requires depends on the bars. Then put a piece of hose on the syringe and connect the other end to the bleeder. Ad fluid and pull on the plunger. Don't let it run out of fluid. When the syringe is full, empty and repeat. Or drink beer and let gravity do the work. Just don't let it run out of fluid. After it stops passing air, put the lid on and stroke it a few times. Once you have a good pull on the lever, fill the cylinder to the full line and put it back where it belongs.
