    First time posting.
    I'm looking around online to see if anyone can give me some advice.

    My living room half bath sink was dripping recently.
    Its a delta model with wide spread type.

    So I looked up online and saw it could be fixed by cartridge replacement.
    dripping was happening from cold side so I bought the replacement part from home depot.

    Followed youtube videos, peoples postings.
    So first I turned water valve off.
    Got the handle off, replaced the cartridge and now theres no water coming out!!
    Even the hot side doesn't work now... I literally only opened the cold water handle to replace the cartridge!

    I first suspected the cartridge but that didn't explain why the hot side suddenly stopped working as well.
    Now I unscrewed the bolt to check just in case the water stopped flowing while leaving the valve on..
    but suddenly water was spreading out everywhere as soon as I loosen the bolt.. (made a huge mess..)

    I just don't understand.. any idea whats going on?
    In summary.. only replaced a cartridge on cold side handle.. suddenly water stopped entirely.
    When loosen the bolt of cold side handle water pumps out but when I put everything back together it doesn't work again..

    Please help..
    I don't know if I messed up the whole thing.. :(
    Just fyi, all other bathrooms are fine..
