Default Fried Outputs on MBox 3 Pro ? Broken ?

re-posting here from my recent Gearslutz post..

HELP!!!! Although it's converters and pre's sound pretty good, The Avid MBox 3 Pro has given me quite a few problems over the last two years.. First I discovered the hard way that Focal CMS's are not compatible with this model due to a HUGE hissing issue (which AVID finally admitted to after many inquiries on my part). Now, upon power up (even when not connected to computer) the volume LEDs do not even flash as they should and my monitors immediately begin a low electronic growling noise which basically sounds like a dying beast of a ghost in the machine- and then no audio response whatsoever.. The same exact problem exists through the headphone jack. It is now a useless paperweight and I feel that I've been jipped and wasted $1000.00 and now need to raise money from the ground up to replace the unit with something else altogether. Has this problem happened to anyone else? Does this sound like something that can be fixed- Is it a fried output transformer of some kind? Any help at all would be greatly appreciated, as I would love to be able to sell the unit and at least re-coup some of the money.. Does Avid take back broken units beyond it's warranty?
