Default Stereo Help

So I got an Sony Xplod and hooked it up with one of those wiring harnesses. I put all the colors together like red with red, green with green, and etc. after I thought I had them all done it wouldn't come on so I guess it wasnt getting any power. I played with it for awhile then gave up so I put the stock stereo back in and plugged it up but it wouldnt come on either. I checked all the fuses so I dont guess thats it any ideas on what it could be or what happened??

Did you plug your antenna into the radio? Sometimes they don't work when the antenna wire is disconnected. Other than that, I'd lightly tug on each of the wires to make sure that they didn't disconnect from the plug, or from whatever they are connected to.
