If it's a pressurised system, check system pressure and top-up if necessary.

If not or if system pressure is fine, then the bleed points could be blocked. Turn off both radiator valves, remove bleed nipple and insert a pin into the radiator to clear blockage - replace nipple open valves and bleed as normal.
