Open the caliper bleed screw more. I usually open them 3/4 to 1 turn. I NEVER drain the fluid out through the caliper, I ALWAYS push fluid up from there to the lever. Then I close off the caliper and 'burp' the lever by repeatedly squeezing the lever w/ the cup installed and some fluid in it so I can see the bubbles of air come out.

ETA: I know this sounds stupid but I've done it and seen others do it...make sure the cup is actually on the lever that's connected to the caliper you're putting the syringe on. I've put the syringe on the rear caliper and then put the cup on the front lever. That NEVER works
