    Based on the images posted on Pass' product website, it looks like there is a user serviceable fuse on the 150.8, 250.8, and 260.8. I don't see one for the 350.8 or 600.8.

    The amp is plugged into an AC circuit used by other gear. That other gear is functioning normally. Also, I did check the breaker box and no breakers were tripped.

    I do indeed have an XP-22. That came with an extra fuse as well in its own box. This one I definitely pulled out of the box from the X250.8. I'm extra certain of that because I pulled the jumper pins from the two XLR inputs (so I could use them) and...

    Is the fuse inside the chassis? I had assumed it was accessible from the outside in the spot between the IEM power inlet and the power rocker switch. I'm assuming that DVM = Digital Volt Meter?

    Well, that won't be a problem because I can't figure out how to get the fuse holder open without scratching the hell out of the casing (which I obviously would like to avoid).
