I think a good start would be to describe in more detail what you did.
Did you copy a bunch of bridge lines you got from BridgeDB into the
input box? If so, I assume you got them via
https://bridges.torproject.org? If so, did you make sure that each of
them is actually running at the moment you tried to use them? Do you
have log output showing what is happening under the hood?
