Default Transmission does not engage after fluid change.

I have a 93 camry, i drained the ATF and refilled throgh the gage pipe.
On starting, the torque converter does not seem to engage.
Did I do something wrong? Is there a way to correct this.
I am thinking, maybe the torque converter is not filled with the fluid
and hence it is not engaging.
Does draining the oil again and backwashing the screen and filling it
up help it get started?
Please advice.
Thanks in advance.

If an older vehicles' transmission has not been serviced regularly,
changing the fluid at this point could have stirred up dirt or disrupted a
potential underlying problem within the transmission. Best guest would be
to drive it for a good 20 minutes up and down hills or in the city and
check the fluid level....if its full and still slipping, you've got bigger
problems.

excuse me for asking the obvious, but did you have the engine running
when you checked the level?
