Alright I have a problem. My head will not turn on!! I used it last night and it worked fine. Then this morning I flipped the power switch and it wont turn on. I checked the outlet and everything and everything is fine, but the head refuses to run.

Anyone know what the poblem may be?

Hmm.....did you check the wiring. A wire couple have snapped. If so, then a simple soldering job should save the day.

in the back of the amp, there's the port where you plug in the power cable. It should say there's a fuse there and there will be a tab. Unplug the power cable to get to the tab, from there use a tool like a screw driver to take off the tab. If the fuse is all black and burnt, then it's blown. replace it with a similar fuse.

Even if all the tubes fail, the amp will still turn on.

if all your lights turn on, and if all your tubes are heating up, and everything appears to be fine (no strange smells, smoke, burning, etc)

check the speaker cable. It happened to me once, the speaker was fine, but the cable plug was fooked. Although, from what you said, it won't turn on at all, In that case, it's likely a problem anywhere in your outlet/socket or your amp's power transformer. Or anything in-between. That's my best guess.
