When it comes to troubleshooting non-working devices, sometimes it pays to go back to basics:

In other words, is it plugged in a "working" electrical outlet, turned on and properly connected to the other devices?

I can't tell you how many times I supported field techs who were totally frustrated at a service call only to find that the electrical outlet was not working due to a tripped breaker.
