Bought this new lowrance hds live 12 from west marine- they shipped. I Hooked it up ran the wires and couldn’t get it to turn on?!?

so I took it off and put the old garmin back back on.

They are ordering in a new one but I am wondering if maybe there’s something i did wrong. Double checked power all the way to the unit and it was there. But just wouldn’t turn on.

Had the same issue with my simrad. I sent it in for warranty as mine came with the boat. Navico has been very responsive and I've been impressed with the customer service so far. Still waiting to hear back as to whether they can fix it or send a new unit. Hope you don't get another lemon

Sounds like your dealer is taking care of you. Over a dozen years ago, my first HDS wouldn't power up sometimes unless I smacked it from the right. Then it would stay on all day.

Lowrance took care of it under warranty. Second one never had an issue.
