To be clear, on a working unit, should the standby lights light up when turned on?
As soon as you press the button on the amp all the lights turn on blue, as you turn the zones on the corresponding blue light turns white.

I wouldn't play with the 110/220 switch especially if you have 220. Are you I the US? Is this in any sort of UPS?


Have monoprice confirmed the sent back units were bad, or admitted that they are having any issues with production? Doesn't make any sense.
Did you try any first in a different outlet?
I would try the next one at the office first just incase

I've never turned it to 220 and left it there. I'm in the US. Monoprice hasn't said anything about whether they have issues or confirmed they're bad. They've just gone through basic troubleshooting (including the voltage toggle) and then issued an RMA. Its starting to feel like they do have issues though. I'm giving up on the amp at this point and looking for other options.

Sorry to hear your giving up, when you get a chance I still would test your outlet to make sure it's ok. A lot of AC devices and all DC don't care about the ground plug or if the polarity is reversed, but amps are very finicky. Next time your in Home Depot pick up one of these

Good luck

Good point on the ground and polarity. It is an older house. I'll test for that.

No luck. The outlets all test good.
