Graphic Equalizer not powering up

I have a ART HD 231 Graghic equalizer and its not turning on.   I only used it once or twice.  Its been sitting in my basement for a while then I came to turn it on,  it wont power on.  The lights on the equalizer are not lit.  The equalizer has a feature that lets sound go through if there is no power going through the unit.  So my sound does go through it without power but I cant use anything else.   I don't get it why its not turning on, plus I checked with the fuse and its still ok.  I even change the power chords to see  if thats the problem and same thing happens.   Its not close to a year old yet.  

Any thoughts?

Some of these are just subtly different. The inner diameter of the plug/socket connnectors can vary just enough not to connect, but to not be too noticeable to the eye. Also the length of the connectors can vary, the actual metal parts that extend into the socket, or the depth of the socket itself.
Glad you got it working!

According to this page:

ALL of their graphic equalizers have a one year warranty.
I'd contact the company about a return, or talk to the store where you purchased it to see if they can do an exchange.
I recommend this, rather than telling you to open the case and look for scorched or unconnected components, because of you do open the case you may very well void the warranty.

When you say you changed the power cord, have you verified that both leads work on another device?
It is just possible they could both be bad.

Otherwise go with michko's suggestion.

i did the return form from the website.    

Actually its working now!!!!!!!!   Its weird I found a different cable probably the same cable that came with the equalizer.  Hook it up and it works.  It looks like any other computer power cord.
