check that the jack on your guitar is tightened. and if your cables can be loosened that they are tight too. beyond that, its probably a blown tube i'm guessing.

Why have you told us, if you have done evrything possible, just do the basic things like check the fuse, check the wires, if ure still stuck take it to a shop n see whats up with it.

Its probably a bad input or output jack on the amp or just a bad solder some where. Should be an easy fix for an amp tech or just take it back to the store.

It's best to call Vox and getting customer service to help you rather than us. They're the guys how made the amp anyways. Plus theres a warranty, no? There better be a decent warranty on that amp.

Are they lighting up when you turn the amp on?

Do they make noise if you tap them gently with a pencil's eraser?
