New Outlets Don't Work?

I changed two wall outlets, just replacing dirty ones. I did them exactly as they were taken off, but both won't work? Not sure what it could be. It has a red, white, and black wire.

Call Home Depot and ask to talk to someone in the electrical dept. Those people at Home Depot have helped me out many times.

If it has red, white, black wires, sounds like a three way switch, and it should have a bare copper ground. You probably got the wrong switch.
