Hi everyone, I own a Peavey 112 Bandit Solo Series. I've just gotten it (four days ago) second hand and I've been told its one years old. When I first got it it seemed a bit buggy, but with a bit of knob tweaking it worked. It's been working fine up until now.

When I switch it on the power light comes on, but no sound comes out until I push up the volume knob to 10. Even then the sound is faint and soft with a bit of crackling now and then.

I'm disappointed and peeved off. Please help me as I don't know much about amps since I have been playing an acoustic guitar for years and have only recently switched to electric. Can I fix this or must I take it in for repairs?
