So I just recently got a new Crate V33 Head. I was really liking it until yesterday. I was playing and all of a sudden it just turned off. I looked and the tubes weren't glowing at all immediately after it cut off. I thought that I might have just blown the fuse on that outlet, but it won't turn on in any other outlets either.

I have no idea what could be wrong with it. Any suggestions?

Is there a fuse in the back of the amp that you might have blown?

Is there anyway that I could check that easily without just buying a new fuse?

Pull the fuse out and see if its blown. Depending on the type used you will be able to see if its blown. If it is theres no way around buying another one.

You can use some sort of a meter (don't remember/know what it's called) to measure if current passes through the fuse. Maybe something that measures voltage? I'm bad with english tech vocabulary.

Edit: And like Tackleberry said, on some fuses (they're glass in the middle) you can see right away if it's blown.

Well, of course you can use your x-ray vision to look through the white ceramic (which doesn't get blackened when the fuse blows, btw).

I was just saying that because as far as my 6505+'s fuses went, they were clear and I could see the fuse wire

Heh, it's ok. I don't know why there even are fuses with ceramic in the middle, since glass would be so much more convenient (you can see if it's blown). The replacement fuses I bought for my amp had glass in the middle, but the original had ceramic.

oh man that sucks. go pick up a new fuse, or two. then plug one in and see if it blows again. if it does, then you need to take your amp to a tech.

Righto, so I know where the fuses are on all my other amps but this one eludes me. Could it be under the backplate?
