gents, I need you guidance on this. Recently I plugged in my ET-3 trigger into my receiver and XPA-2 and XPA-5. Everything has worked well for the last 2 weeks. However, I got an alarm off my power-inspired regenerator today. I switched off the XPA-2 which is the plugged into the regenerator together with my receiver. I plugged receiver in power socket directly, no issues. I plugged XPA-2 into power socket directly and the orange standby mode showed up. I switched on the XPA-2 and it immediately tripped the power plug.
Is there a troubleshoot guide or am I better ringing Emotiva. I have read here before of others changing fuses and the like. The XPA-2 is approx 3.5 years old. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
First, disconnect all inputs and outputs from the XPA-2 and try to power up again. It's possible that there may be a short in either a input or speaker wire that is throwing it into a fault. If it still goes into protect mode then give Emotiva a call. If you're lucky, it may only be a inexpensive fuse that you can replace yourself rather than sending it in.

You might have a bad fuse, indeed. Plugging into a power regenerator is probably NOT a good idea. They generally won't supply the current required of a large amp.
