Sony A7: dead out of the box :: any ideas?

Well, I'm bummed. I just got my A7 (from Amazon) and, evidently, it is dead.

I've inserted the battery, but camera will not turn on.

I've attached the camera (via the micro USB cable) to the charger, but the charging light doesn't illuminate.
I've tried plugging it into my computer but that doesn't work either. I've also tried a different USB cable.

I'm guessing/hoping I got a bum battery. Does anyone know if the charging light (or screen) will illuminate when the camera is plugged in but the battery is removed?

Thought I'd post here to see if there might be something (obvious, or otherwise) I'm missing.
