last time i played my amp was yesterday, and it had a great sound as usual and i turned it off by turning standby on and then turning it off when the tubes took time to simmer down

today i come from school, and turn it on standby to warm up, all the lights work, all tubes are glowing, foot pedal is a-okay, but the amp wont make any sound

i have no clue what happened, i never change any important settings such as speaker level (its on 8ohms), I never move this amp anywhere, and ive tried different cables, as well as channels, and guitars.

what could possibly be wrong?

i see no other way but to take it to a tech and have it examined but id rather see if I can get any help from you guys.

I've had this amp for a while and the tubes were replaced around 2 months ago, I've only played this amp loud just a few times at jams with my band, and at school.

=(

guitar problms??? try a diff guitar maybe



tried that already =/

i noticed that the amp doesnt even hum or pop while switching cables

i know if a tube burns out the channels might go off, or particular ones, but i checked and every tube is fine and glowing, im thinking there might be issues with speakers or the input but i dont want to experiment and hurt the amp =/

You could get $1000 custom made pickups hand wired with Eric Johnsons pubic hair, and they'd still sound pretty bad through a ****ty solid state practice amp.

Okay then, valves? Output Transformer? Speakers connects?

how do u kno the output transformers gone bad? and i havent checked speakers but theres a grille on the back of my amp and i dont move it around so i dont know why speaker cables should be loose

valves seem fine

it's probably just the tubes, most likely a pre tube if there's no sound at all.

Do you have any effects in line? If so check the batteries/ adapters. If they are buffered bypass than you won't get any sound through it, even if it's turned off.
apparently UG's only type O-

Thanks jb_designs.

nope, i cant seem to find the problem, theres probably a short in the circuit inside

i have to take it to the doctor. thanks anyway guys

jesus, the amount of unhelpful advice here is astounding. i'm pretty sure the guy knows how to turn on an amp and plug in his guitar.

hey dude. there are 2 fuses near the output transformer in the TSL, just where the kettle lead goes into it. one of them is the HT fuse and i believe it's a 1A fuse. you can access it without opening up the amp. there'll be a little plastic "door" that you can open and pop out the fuse.

chances are this is your problem.

replacement fuse shouldn't be more that 1 dollar/euro a pack

maybe you accidentally pushed the output mute button next to the standby switch
