Bring it to your LBS with a 6 pack in hand and ask if they'll have a look at it, you'll probably have to pay for their time too but the beers make things go faster!
My LBS tried to bleed it, couldn't, and gave it back to me. They came to the same conclusion that I initially did, that something was broken inside the shifter so this forum has been much more helpful!
I actually bled it yesterday and rode it today, had a few issues with the bleed (pushing the lever all the way in, when opening and closing the caliper bleed nipple for example, seems to block the shifter up again) but I managed it and seems all good now :)
Did you cut off the barb that came with the J kit or did you just poke the black bit to enable the flow of fluid?
