Hi Ben,

I've had a similar experience with either the Paragon or the Delta II,
can't remember which.  In the past someone probably had a device plugged
in and getting power from the aux jack and accidentally shorted it which
burns up a very fine land on the PC board supplying the power to that
jack from the main input power board.  If that is the case, you can
simply run a small gauge wire around the burned land and it will be good
as new.  I don't believe there is an internal fuse for that circuit.  In
effect the land on the circuit board IS the fuse, sorry to say.  Good
