As a follow up, I started with replacing what appeared to be a burned out fuse in the F2 slot. Bought a quality pack of T12a/250's (the "T" which appears no where on the fuse stands for "time delay", I learned. "Slow blow" is what shows on the label). Replaced the fuse and noticed like MASONish that it didn't seat properly on one end. I tightened the clip and the fuse popped right in. Plugged it in and let there be light. Thanks to all for their input.
