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

Open a full turn, nothing. Yeah, it is the correct lever.
