Tektro Pro Brake Bleed

New to the forum, and tektro brakes too. Manual from manufacturer seems to show only the basics, and nothing more than what I've seen online elsewhere with no real troubleshooting.

Several videos online show the process to be simple. I got the proper bleed kit, and followed the instructions. When I hook the hose/syringe to the caliper and open the caliper valve, I cannot push in or pull out any air/oil. If I push harder, the hose eventually blows off (spraying mineral oil everywhere) as if the valve is not open, which I know it is, because after 1/4 turn, a tiny amount does dribble out.

So, in laymen's terms, my guess is there is a blockage somehow, as I cannot get anything to come out of the reservoir on the upper handle. Any suggestions?
