So, I have this Fender Frontman 15g combo amp. It worked alright for an inexpensive practice amp, but I didn't really use it that much. (Playing unplugged has been good on the other people in the house)

So, since I'm getting a new guitar(as you may have guessed, it came with an affinity strat), I decide to plug the thing in, and what happens? It doesn't turn on. I tried using several different power cords and several different outlets. Didn't work. Could the fuse possibly be a problem? I'm not really very knowledgeable about this sort of thing, so I took some pictures of my amp to see if anyone here would see an obvious problem.







I had trouble getting a good shot of the fuse, but these are really the best I was able to do.




If anyone has any idea as to what the problem is, please let me know! Thanks a lot.

Solid-state amps only would have problems like this with the fuses, so id see if i could buy a new one. when u go to get ur guitar, have em check it out.

I don't think it has a fuse. The bad news is that its not worth getting fixed. Think about a new amp. There are some very affordable decent little practice amps. A Peavey Backstage Transtube will run about $80. Wish I could tell you something different. These so-called Fender and Squier series practice amps are well known for failing just as you describe.
