    I bought one here on TB a few years ago. It looks like it was never used. Rather than return it when I bought it, I figured that since it was in such nice condition, that the fact that I've never been able to even get the power light to come on, was my bad somehow. I have held on to it, figuring I might get it working someday. I've looked inside, nothing looks simply, doesn't work. A/C or battery, same thing. It looks like it was and still could be a very useful tool for me. The only thing it doesn't have is an XLR in for a mic, on the mic channel. If I get it working, I'd mod it for one. Does anyone know some secret issue these had that might be an easy fix? An E-mail to Fishman produced the sound of crickets.
    Thanks for reading this far!

    Open it up, trace the power supply path with a voltmeter.

    You could contact Fishman about it... They're in the process of replacing my old Full Circle p/u and they've been really great so far.

    Fishman built it, so you could try and contact them.

    I know you emailed Fishman, why don't you call and speak to someone? Seems like the best plan.

    Weird that you didn't hear back from fishman. They replied to me within 8 hours. Everything's been super quick and organized so far...
