No lights/power on x1 box

We just added cable to our account and we received our equipment today. The box we received won’t light up/power on at all. We’ve done all troubleshooting measures and attempted restarts remotely and manually. Nothing is working to get power/lights on the box. Should I take box back to store in morning and ask for a new one?

You most likely already have, but did you try plugging the box into a different electrical outlet?
