Have you checked the fuses?

Sounds like the power supply is bad. A fuse if you're lucky. But what do you mean when you say you heard "a rush of current" when you turned on the power switch? Is there a fan on the unit?
If you know what voltages the power supply sends to the amp, you could check the power supply output to see if it's good. Simple enough if you have a voltmeter.
Thanks,for the attempted help,guys.All switches are engaged correctly.When I stated a "rush" of current after re-plugging into wall,I meant that you can hear a subtle thump,from the speaker drivers,which always indicates current present.
My BIG concern is that since it is a two chassis unit,each weighing about ninety lbs,I will possibly have to ship both.NOT CHEAP!!!
If I listened alot,or had a speaker that was a tough load,I'd not be so disappointed,but I didn't listen at all in two months,and am fanatical with overall care of my stuff.So,when I tried to power up,to not have the amp turn on,sort of sucks.Also,to compound the frustration,it was NOT confidence building to not be able to get in touch with the mfgr during normal weekly business hrs.
Hopefully this CAN prove to be less fatiguing if,when I do speak with Rowland,maybe there can be an additional mod(I hear alot about "V-teflon caps")made to the unit,to improve ultimate performance.That I can live with,more easily,as the effort of reboxing two heavy chassis is NOT how I like to spend my time.I will say,that past updates were done with professionalism,so I hope the Rowland of 2006,is still customer oriented!
Any weight lifting hobbyists out there?
Just got off the phone with Jeff Rowland.He really is very easy to discuss a problem with,and gave me a real sense of confidence,that the P/S(that's where he felt the problem was)would be "easily" taken care of.He felt it was a minor problem,and will do the work himself.Maybe even an improvement,in performance can be had,with any new available mods,according to Jeff.Must admit to being a greatly relieved,and fortunately this is the lighter chassis.Whew!
Thanks to all!
