OK so here's the story..

I bought a Bugera 6260 about a month ago and everything was working fine up until about a week ago. I powered the amp on and all of a sudden i saw sparks by the tubes then it shut off and wouldn't power back on.

SO...

I bought a new fuse and it powers on now and works..
but there is a horrible popping/crackling noise you can hear when you play..

What could be wrong nowwwww?

There's your problem.

Yeah, I have fond memories as a child of fapping to a porno with my close friends before sitting down for a nice relaxing evening of Runescape.

So, you saw the tubes spark... Then the fuse went off... Now you replaced the fuse but you get terrible popping/crackling noise... Ever thought that the tubes might be the cause?

***LEAVE YOUR AMP TURNED OFF UNTIL YOU GET IT FIXED ***

480 DC Volts are fused for reason and replacing the fuse doesn't fix what caused it happen in the first place.

You have a SERIOUS highvolt connection problem that is arcing. Either fix the connection issue or send your amp back for a refund.

Please don't end up like this guy:

OK for the love of God - If you try to repair it there's a good chance you'll either:

A) Do more damage to it
B) Die

So - take it to a tech who knows what their doing and get it replaced!!!

sounds like the lead comeing from the output transformer to the PCB board arced and burn up the plastic clip. its an easy fix if you are handy with a soldering iron. if its under warranty still, just send it back and they will replace the amp or fix the problem. if its not under warranty have a tech or someone you know that is good with a soldering iron do this quick job
