Pull plug.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Not a lot of information here, is there :D My guess is that it could be a switch problem :lol:
It should sound like it isn't there!

Keep on.
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

F1, for the first time I think I can help you make one even shorter... instead of "Pull Plug" how about this: "Unplug." :D :D :D Suddenly I am flashing back to your all time funniest "NO" reply to the home theater question... :lol: :lol:

Like Bill and F1 both stated, it almost certainly has to be a problem in the switch. Depending on how handy you are with switches and things it should not be too difficult to determine if it's just stuck and can be freed up by cleaning with a shot of switch cleaner etc. or if the switch will need to be replaced. :-k 8)
