Everything is plugged in, and I figured it out.
the 3rd prong; the ground prong on the 3 prong cable, needs to be firmly "forced" into the outlet . the plug must be on a for lack of better words "air tight" flush 90 degrees into the ground socket. If its not grounded the amp will no turn on .
headed in leu of reading the warning sticker on the cable itself . and after 3 shimmys of the actualy cord itself.
I know it sounds stupid to ask this but your last comment doesn't make much sense. Is the AC plugged into the wall? Or is it the AC is plugged in but the speakers and input aren't?
