If you just got it, it should be under warrranty. Contact the store and/or the manufacturer and demand a replacement.

If it hasn't worked since you got it -- contact whoever sold it to you? And/or find another game station to test it on, in case the problem is in yours?

Diagnosing it beyond that is going to take going in and making sure all the connections are being made properly, then if that seems OK looking for damaged components in either box.
