I have been reticent to open the case of my unit as I was attempting to send it back to Lionel for their look/see. I did not wish to have any warranty issues with Lionel. However, my CFO just ordered for me a New Command Base Set from Amazon. So the existing unit as far as I can see is not going back. So my question. The current state of the unit is no lights appear when power is supplied. The Power Supply is putting out a nominal voltage, so that all appears to be correct. Is there a fuse somewhere imbedded inside the case that may be blown? I should also mention that when power is applied to the unit the charging lights do light and then quickly go out. Any Ideas?
As a separate issue/concern, now that I am thinking about it, the unit purchased from Amazon states the the seller is Lionel. The concern I am just having is in my looking around at various Supplier Websites, the going price is around $330. The price on Amazon which I think is a great price is $307. Looking again at the Amazon website there is no mention of New/Refurbish. Is it possible that Lionel uses this outlet to sell refurbished units and that is the reason for the price?
Thanks for looking and any information you can provide to me.
