Default Help- Brand new Cobra VHF radio display wont come on...power shortage or bad radio??

Our 10 year old Uniden finally crapped out...Bought a brand new fixed mount Cobra last weekend and went to install it Saturday morning. Stripped the wiring from the old connections to make sure they would be good...Got her hooked up and fired it up and it will turn on, however the LCD display is not showing channel numbers or anything...only thing that will come on is the orange backlight. I can even hear static in the background.

Borrowed a battery tester from my buddy and the wires are generating power... Could the unit not be getting enough power or does it just sound like a bad radio? I've always thought Cobra's had a pretty good reputation... any thoughts or help??
