I recorded the issue. Looking for suggestions how to fix. Tried different power cord. Tried removing all inputs. Tried doing hard resets with the power switch. Issue still happens. Plugged into decent surge protector.
It will do the clicking struggle for maybe 20 seconds. Then settle on blue but not detect any channels. Also, the lights are noticeably dimmer than the processor. When it clicks back and forth, the LED on the back very quickly flashes between 115 and 230V. Home is American standard 120. Another 30 seconds and it will go back to 'switching' or whatever it's doing.
Hadn't used system in a few months. Came down, turned on, this is the result.

It's been a couple years. Doubt its still under any warranty but maybe there's a couple simple swap parts inside, like fuses or a faulty switch for which they can send me a replacement. Don't want to have to take it in somewhere. Bummer though. First time going to to chill with setup in a good long while and... nothing.

Just came back to this thread after a while. Still haven't called Emo. Weekdays keep me busy. Tried disconnecting everything when I was messing with it a few weeks ago. It's on a surge protector that wasn't tripped. Also tried plugging it in without the surge just in case it was a bad unit. No changes. Fuses are what I am curious about. It would be excellent if there was a fuse for a couple bucks I could swap in. I haven't disassembled the unit at all yet. Figured I would get advice from someone at Emo first to see if they can tell me exactly how many and kind of fuses to look for.
I just ran across this thread. My guess is two things...either your protection relay has gone bad or there is something causing a short and thereby causing your protection relay to shut your amp down. If its under warranty i would definitely have them fix it. They can then test it after fixing it. Unless your amp is super heavy i would get it repaired. Also, i have heard that dust can sometimes cause a short so maybe you can clean out the inside of your amp if theres a ton of dust in there.
I have same problem with my XPA-200. I had some electrical work done today on an attic fan and turned the power off and then back on. The amp is plugged into a surge protector and it was not tripped. But the amp is doing the same as the original poster. Everything else in the system, all emo items, see signature below works fine. Called Emo tech number and it looks like it needs service. My wife threw away most of my Emotiva boxes so I also have to pay $35 dollars for the shipping boxes. We have had power outages before when Southern California Edison works on the line and not problem. This time I was not lucky. Will make sure to unplug the system in the future. Very bummed no tunes for a while. Matt
