Hello, it sounds like you blew a 24volt fuse while changing the capacitor... since however there are 2 separate capacitors in the system I need to know which capacitor exactly that you changed, was it in the outside unit? or the inside unit?

Tell me if you have a multi meter to check the line voltage at the contactor in the outside unit or not, and a lot about your skill sets, we can go from there.
