Korg Electribe 2 Sampler Won’t Power On

I have a Korg Electribe 2 Sampler that I got for a low price because it does not power on. It’s in excellent condition though. Does anybody know if there’s just a fuse in the unit that needs to be replaced? This might not be the best place to ask the question as vintage synths seem to be favored here, but I thought I would still give it a shot because I love Syntaur.

Basic first questions: Are you sure the power adapter is putting out the correct voltage? Is the power switch possibly faulty?

Oh yeah! I really appreciate you sharing that Sam. I’ll do it.

… additionally, since you obtained it 2nd hand, is the power adapter the correct type - ie Voltage and polarity - check and compare PSU with notation near the connection on the rear of the EMX2.
