Exclamation universal light kit intalled by directions not recieving power

I purchased a Westingtonhouse universal ceiling fan light kit from home depot. I have followed the directions to the "T" and for some reason the light kit is not receiving power. The lights WILL NOT come on. I am wondering if something is wired backwards or if the directions are backwards if i hook the blue wire to the white wire and the black wire to the white wire what will happen? I mean if it is properly wired and it was just something else if i try this im not going to blow something up or start an electrical fire am i?

It will work either way though there are code reasons for white to white the light is color blind.

The blue wire may never have been connected at the ceiling box if this was installed without a light. That needs to be checked first.
