I would say as long as the power supply comes up by itself, its
probably not the problem. Something in the switch is loading
it down to the point where it won't power up, or an open.
I would return it if you can, if not pull all the mods and
see if it powers up just mounted in ths chassis.
If not visually inspect for opens. If it does, pop em in
one-by-one process of elimination.

Another, verified good,  power supply would help a lot.

Good Luck!
