If other bulbs will fire in the sockets and the new bulb will not fire at all in any socket, you either have a second bad bulb or the wattage is off.

With having them shipped it is not that far of a stretch. If the socket will fire another bulb, and the wattage is correct the only option is a bad bulb.
