Topic - Avid Juicy Brakes problem

All the Gear, No Idea on 04 Oct 2013
Hi, first off I have checked on regular biking forums and not found an answer, so this is a long shot.....here goes.
Avid Juicy 3 hydraulic brakes, problem= brake does not stop wheel rotating even when lever is held as hard as possible, on other bikes/brakes I can lock the wheel with one finger on the brake lever.
So what have I tried,,
1 bleed the brakes,
2 replace pads
3 bleed the brakes
4 put old working pads from rear brake into front (faulty) brake
5 bleed brakes
6 swapped rotors
7 swapped rotors back
8 tried different brand of pads
9 yes re bled the brakes
all has resulted in still not improving braking

Has any one had the same problem? and resolved it . it does seem to point at either a faulty cylinder/lever or caliper

? any help appreciated
