So, it happened once, I turned my amp off stand by, and no sound, afte rhaving it on standby for a few minutes, then after like a minute of being off standby it got sound.

Today I was playing, it was fine, then about 2 hours later when I decide to turn it on again, no sound.

Its like its permanently on standby. No sound, no noise when I touch then end of the cable, the tubes are new, about a month old, and they still light up. Everything lights up, just no sound. Any idea of what this could be?

I tried different guitars and cables, so it is the amp.

does it have a light telling you that it is fully on? if so is that turning on or is it staying the standby color?

It only has a light for being powered. Regardless if its in standby or actually on, the light will be on.

yeah figured.
well if you are not hearing a click or more fuzz when hitting the on switch, your switch might not be making the "on" connection anymore. aka ****ed up.

I just opened it up and took at look at the chassis, all the solder joints look fine for the standby and on switches.

My best guess is to buy 2 HT fuses and replace the existing as long as you know what a capacitor is and the fact that it can kill you. If the HT fuse blows again, then there is something wrong with your power tubes. Me guesses.

Otherwise - take it in.
#11
Ok, can I go down to my radioshack etc and ask for a HT fuse or just a fuse with that same voltage rating?

I would download the Triple X owners manual and get the exact same 'part number' you see there. Also, you can post in the XXX/JSX/Ultra thread and also the dedicated forum at peavey.com.


Yes, it should be a standard fuse.
#13
Sounds to me like the stand by switch is just getting stuck, replace the rocker stwitch with a new one, if your handy with a soldering iron, if not take it in.

this happened to my Peavey XXX three days ago actually.

i took the amp apart, and one of the fuses on the circuit board was blown. went to home depot and picked up a 5 pack of them for $2.19. replaced the fuse, and now the amp is fixed.

You just want to be careful, because that fuse blew for a reason. It stopped something from getting f***ed.

I had this problem with my 6505+ and im not good with the tech side of amps so i decided to take it to a shop and they said it might be some wiring problem with the stand-by switch or a resistor might be blown.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Yes, the speaker is fine. I'll try to change fuses and see what happens.

yeah, i accidentally turned the amp on and off really fast without using standby, and it blew.

if you do replace the fuse on the circuit board, make sure to use a 2 amp fuse.
