Default No power to Honda Stereo

I just got a Honda Civic year 2000 (my first car) and fitted a new stereo to it. The new system worked fine whilst I was testing it. So I was happy and pushed it all the way into the center console. It was a tight fit so I had to pull at the cabling a little to get it to go in. Then when I turned it back on again.... nothing.
Since I know very little about cars and electronics, I was hoping someone could help.
I've downloaded all the manuals.
The weird thing is this, all the fuses are okay and the car starts up no probs. But...
in order for the dash clock to come on, I have to plug the stereo in (even though it doesnt power up), but if I plug the stereo aerial into the stereo, the clock goes dead again. I have noticed a loose black wire which I believe is from the stereo cabling loom, and I think that this connects to g601 (grounding point) behind the dash.
Does the stereo need to be grounded for it to work, could this be causing the weird clock issue?
Is it possible that the 12v constant/memory power is having problems, do I need that for the stereo to come on. Shouldnt the stereo come on, when I turn the ignition, even if the constant power isnt connected.
I really hope that someone can help. The car is awesome, but no music is going to drive me nuts.

Smile Re: No power to Honda Stereo - fixed!

I fixed it finally!
I reconnected the G601 ground cable, and then checked all of the fuses again, referring to the manuals I'd downloaded.
The fuse in question - a 7.5A was located in the hood fuse box and had blown.
After disconnecting the battery negative terminal I replaced the offecnding fuse and hooked up the stereo again.
After reconnecting the battery - success!
Clock came back on and stereo fires up!!
