    I recently noticed that the light contained within the power switch on this unit is flickering. Is this an indication of a power fluctuation of some sort?

    This is what is plugged into it.

    My first guess would be that this is a neon bulb in the switch, and it is probably going out. Are you noticing any problems with your equipment?

    Ralph,

    The bulb in my HTS 2000 used to flicker. I realized it was just loose...of course, it's just about impossible to tighten it without taking the unit apart.

    Thanks guys,

    The equipment is working fine. I'm going to add a conventional power strip and plug the pyramids into that to see if it makes a difference. If it's just a loose bulb, I can live with it. It's out of sight anyway.

    Thanks again,

    Ralph

    I'd be fairly confident it's just a dying neon bulb. It happens in pretty much all AC power switches, and won't affect you at all, unless the flickering bothers you.

    I have one of those and in any case if you're having problems with your power the ground or power protection light will be off. Not flickering. In a nutshell, try it somewhere else but I bet it's only a dying bulb.
