Studio Monitor not working, Not a blown woofer. HELP!

So I have a pair of Mackie MR5 MK2's and one of them is not working. I've isolated the problem to it being the monitor as when I switch the XLR from the faulty monitor to the working monitor it works fine. I checked the woofer and fuse making sure neither was blown and both are fine. I get RF interference in the non-working monitor was curious if that could contribute to it as well.

Is it possibly an electronic fault?

Should I take it in for a repair?

Crossover or power module could be blown.

How would I find out if either are blown? I'm assuming I'll have to open it up, or send it out depending on the level of technological know how I'll need. I don't think it's the power module because the power light comes on when the power switch is on but I could easily be wrong if that doesn't effect the sound.
