Is it possible for the power tubes to have failed even when they are lit?

woo for kentish people!

as for the topic, i dont really know.

but i'd like to latch a question on to it:

What are the general symptoms of tubes that need replacing?

started out as an intermittent fault escalated over the course of an hour to no sound being produced...
everything lit up as it should be...

all cables etc checked...

think i'm going to have to send it back.

bit of an arse since its the 2nd one that's gone wrong.
shame since its such a great amp.

any obvious overheating? smoke frying sounds
nice orange glowing tubes?
(make triple sure that its not the speaker cable(swap it for another one(a guitar lead will do for a quick test)
sounds dumb but turning on and off a couple of times and giving it a good thump(not too hard)
reveal multitudes of small solutions)
