Replaced power steering pump and after initially working it now does not

(2005 Scion tC)
I replaced the pump, belt and tensioner due to a leaky pump on 05 scion tc. I admit i did not initially bleed it correctly, I filled reservoir and started car and immediately the fluid was low so i put more in until it was full. It then bubbled up and stopped and worked fine. I test drove the car and for 5 min everything was fine then i lost all power steering. I tried to bleed it several times after correctly but it makes no difference and the fluid is not circulating in reservoir. Could i have damaged new pump that quickly by not bleeding it first time?
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Nothing it will not work at all now
How long have you had this problem? Since replacing pump
