I said "try changing", not "throw out" (reading and quoting is a basic skill). Having sold many _multi-thousand-Euro-switches_ let me tell you that they can be broken right from the start. DOA should ring a bell. A simple temporary change of the switch (often the replacement is provided by the vendor) would immediately show if this could be the problem. It's a bit of a general problem on lists like this one (very technical ones) that some very smart people dislike simple straight forward solutions to be checked first, although it happens all the time that smart people stumble over simple problems. Instead they like to tell other people they're not sage enough. So sorry for my "Is the cable ok?" approach as a first aid, I will keep my mouth shut now, knowing that there's a savvy elite around.
