I just received my E3.5 monitors today, and I have everything set up and plugged in, and I have checked that my power strip and outlet are all good and they are, but when I flip on my master power the blue pilot light doesn't even come on and I can't figure out why, and the manual is absolutely no help. Is there anyone else that's had this issue? And how did you fix it?

Sounds like a mfg defect.  You might have to return them.  have you tried them in another room?

Hi, I have just experienced the same thing.  They worked once then stopped. I tracked the problem down to a blown fuse in the plug. I determined that this happens when the unit is switched on.  I tested by putting a new fuse in and checking the voltage using a multimeter where I was getting 232 volts across the two pin terminals on the lead.  I switched off at the mains and plugged the cable into the speaker, switched on at the mains but did not switch on at the speaker. I then removed the power cable from the back of the speaker and tested the terminals again, getting 232 v as before. I then plugged the power cable back  the speaker, switched on at the mains, then switched on at the speaker. No blue power light! I removed the power cable from the speaker and tested the terminals again.No voltage registered.  I can only assume that when you switch power on at the speaker it's shorting out an blowing the fuse in the plug. The fuse is 3 amp I wonder if that is too low but don't want to try just in case.  I'm posting a ticket with these details.
