Junk it. That's the best advice I could give you. but have you checked the clean channel volume and the gain setting on the distorted channel?

this happened to me a couple years ago. try picking up the amp about a foot above the ground, and then dropping it. i kid you not, this actually fixed my broken MG for a while until i finally got my JCM800

Try your guitar on another amp to see if there's a problem there(volume knob messed up or anything) then play a different guitar on your amp to make sure it's the amp.

Don't open it up and start messing with stuff unless you know what you're doing.

well id just be looking for the odd stuff like some loose wires and slack screws ect
id have to use the amp with another guitar just to make sure that's the problem alone not my guitar..

i agree. especially with a solid state amp, its not like you can just check for a blown tube or something, its all electronics. if you don't know what you're doing, theres not much you can do

Your best bet would be just take it to a shop and have a professional look at it. It will definitely cost more than asking us but you have less of a chance of taking advice from someone who diesnt know what they're doing. You're probably going to end up taking it in anyway once you figure out what the problem is because once again: if you start messing with stuff and you don't know what you're doing, something WILL get messed up.

wrong dude. amps, even unplugged ones, can carry enough charge to fry your ass into next year.
check for blow fuses... water damage... and if you don't take advice well, and you do open it up, of course you're going to look for burn patterns, loose wires, normal ****.

not sure what the impedance is for an mg off the top of my head, but if you zap yourself, I'm putting you in for a darwin award.

^Impedance has nothing to do with frying yourself. It's the stored charge in the giant capacitors that will kill you.

the buffer has a thing or two to do with the charge that gets stored, but yeah... use chopsticks.

EDIT: now, if you were just looking to catch me slippin', you coulda' said, "it's a combo, and even if it is busted, it still makes sound, thus implying that the speaker is groovy and the load is carried."

to which I would reply, d***, you got me.
