Spary soapy water around the bonnet (the part with the threads). Where the leak is coming from, it will bubbly up. Most leaks are easy to find and fix.

It it won't hold air at all the check valve is bad. This shouldn't be an issue with a new tank though.

Pmi regs are pretty easy, 2 orings and one check valve not much that can go wrong and easy to flesh out issues.

It you got it new just return it and get
Something different,

It is a steel tank? get rid of it and invest in a carbon fiber tank.
