i don't have a C wire but i have many others including the RH, RC, Y, W, G...can't get power to the new stat. any ideas?
The only way to get power here to operate this t/stat is to run a new wire to bring the common wire to the t/stat so you have the 24 volts to power it OR buy a t/stat that is battery powered and needs no C wire. These are your only 2 options as I assume all the wires are accounted for and used with no extras that could be tapped for the C connection.
