Primare A32 front panel-rapidly flashing standby indicator light

Anyone own or owned a Primare A32 power amp and had problems with the front panel standby indicator flashing rapidly?  Over the last few months I've had to manipulate the rear left speaker cable inputs to hear sound out of the left speaker each time I turned it on.  But the unit always powered up and eventually played beautifully.  Now I get nothing.  I've disconnected and then reconnected the power cord, the XLR cables from the preamp, and both speaker cables.  The fuse is in good shape.  But the standby indicator still flashes when I try to power it up. A designer flaw I've found is that the front panel is attached by 6 tiny screws (2 on top, 1 on lower L & R side, & 2 underneath).  For such a massive unit one would think the designers could've used sturdier screws.  The top right screw broke a while back and may have left a fragment in the screw hole (hard to tell it's so small).  The front panel now has a little wiggle room which may be causing some wiring hit and miss inside though I can't see how.  I've never pushed or pulled on the front plate after the unit was set up and it's played many months without problems.  I researched online and found Audio Elite Technician LLC in Lakebay WA.  The website says they offer factory authorized service for Primare gear (along with McIntosh gear).  Anybody ever dealt with these guys?  The A32 weighs 88 pounds and I'm not fond of trying to ship it out of state.  Should I try a local repair shop first?  I really love my system's sound and want the A32 back in the game so I can again lose myself in musical bliss.
@martyfriedman, I love Amazon. Once your tools arrive, repairs will be easy breezy.  @jafant , I hang out here, headfi and computer audiophile. I've learned a lot from all 3 sites. Here's my system:
1.   JRiver Media Center 22 on PC
2.   WyWires Silver USB cable
3.   Calyx Femto DAC
4.   Violectric XLR interconnect to
5.   Primare Pre32 preamp
6.   Violectric XLR interconnect to
7.   Primare A32 power amp
8.   Audience Au24se speaker cables to
9.   Monitor Audio Gold 300 floorstanders
10. SVS PC-2000 subwoofer (no special cable)
11. PS Audio 5 Powerplant runs my computer, DAC and preamp.
That's my little system and, thank you, I'm more than happy with it. I have no desire for any changes in the next decade or 2 or 3 (unless something goes out).
we had the same protective fuse
open when speaker wires touched
by accident.
it now looks like your speaker wire is fixed and it's water under the bridge.
