Unhappy Let master cylinder run dry , how can I bleed?

Like I stated I let my master cylinder run dry when changing calipers. I added a quart and as I was bleeding added another quart. Still no brakes. I'm not getting any more air. Will the gravity method work or do I gotta pay someone to bleed them. If so what will that cost ? Thanks guys

I have never had luck with gravity bleeding since the master is higher than the master cy lwith lots of flat areas and air traps in between

.. I always power bleed starting with the furthest caliper from the master

i always use speed bleed fittings because I have no friends
and All my local auto parts stores sell them

otherwise I use a mighty vac tool to suck the fluid to the furthest bleeder and then move to the closer ones
