PowerMatch 8250 not Power on

I have a PowerMatch 8250 amp that has been working properly for over two years, before closing the store in April for COVID19.
This week we have reopened and trying to turn it on. PM8250 has only turned on the limit, signal and clip lights for 15 seconds. Then the amplifier is turned off. The screen never turns on.
I would like to be sure that there is nothing I can do before sending it for repair because it is on a Greek island and the shipping cost is considerable.
Is there anything I could do before sending it out for repair?

Re: PowerMatch 8250 not Power on

Hello Aurelio,


It looks like an hardware issue.

You can try the following:
Power down the PowerMatch
Press and hold button 1-3-5 below the display
Power the PowerMatch (fans will blow at max)
Connect your computer via USB
Perform a firmware update

If this does not resolve your issue, please send the unit for repair.
