Before freaking out, check the simple stuff. Make sure its on and not on standbye, there is not a problem with the outlet it is plugged into and check the fuse on the amp. If neither of those things is the problem, hopefully someone will have further suggestions. If its new, take it back and get a replacement.

If its a new amp and the outlet its plugged into is fine and its not the fuse, do not mess with it, take it back and get a replacement amp or a refund.

Check the fuse.

If its not fuse, test for dirty power

if its not dirty power, take it back and get a replacement, they are really good amps.

and what is the fuse? where do i check it?
#10
I know it sucks that its new and does not work, but stop stressing. Leave it alone and just take it back for the other one your getting tommorow.

It should be a round black spot on the back of the amp... make sure its unplugged first.

EDIT

Just re-read your newest post

If it is toast it should be mildly black and there should be NO wire running through it.

well i dont see back but i see a lil string with a dot going through the middle with a like bump but i think that is normal
#16
Yeah.. that is normal....

Take it back then, it is possible that the wire for the standby switch is loose...weird.... 2 cases seems to me like that today....

Just get a replacement... honestly, they are really good amps.
