The Pyramid has an internal overload breaker. It resets automatically but it takes some time to reset.

If you unscrew the bottom plate (underneath), you'll see two big capacitors. It's usually one of them that 'goes'. You can buy these for around $1 and replace it yourself very easily. I've done that with two of my pyramids, then I got 'smart' and got a better power supply.

I use pyramid supplies on all my equipment. Mine have overload protection. Typically they shut down when overload is detected. Turn them off, wait a bit, then back on. But it may depend on the model you have.

Does the power supply have overload protection ? You may be lucky and only have to replace a fuse.
