Alright. I can't figure this out on my own so I'm doing this as a last resort.

My Peavey 6534+ (basically a 6505 if you aren't familiar) isn't doing well. I had it home and it worked perfectly, then when I arrived to a venue and plugged it all in, it didn't work. I've tried multiple ways of troubleshooting and I KNOW it's the head itself, I just can't figure it out.

The head turns on and the tubes heat up fine. The problem is that no sound comes out of the cab. You can faintly hear a distorted guitar tone from the head itself. It's almost like a rattling. It even does it with the cab not plugged in. It sounds like it's coming from the input transformer (excuse me if that's not what it's called).

Help!

Running the head not under a load can cause serious damage
I would recomend taking it to a tech. Messing about and not
knowing the cause can be dangerous as well as cause more
problems.

yes, not only to the amp but yourself as well if you don't know what you are doing. never run a tube amp without load. also if you don't know what your doing don't go poking around with your fingers. electricity can kill. i am amazed that i have been on internet forums so long and not hear of anybody getting injured from doing something they don't know what they were doing.
