I was playing for a couple minutes, low volume, stopped and lowered the guitar volume for a few seconds and the amp is dead.... i checked the power outlet and tried to plug it into others and nothing. Is this a fuse?

Its a Bugera 6262 and I had a Thd Hotplate running in front of the speakers on the -12db setting.... any reasons why it would just shut down?

Because it's a Bugera with crap tubes.
Maybe you overcooked the tubes too with the hotplate. (It can happen.)
Signatures are overrated.

It could be a fuse problem, but it could be your tubes too.
The stock tubes are probably low quality, so the constant use of an attenuator could have ran their life low. I'd check your fuse first, but if that doesn't fix it, it might be your tubes.

BTW, did you match up your impedance with the hotplate?

Is your indicator still lighting up?

If not, check the mains fuse. It should be accessible from the back of the amp.

with volume on 2, why did you even need a hotplate?

Why are you playing a 120watt amp at home? Why do you have a 120watt tube am to begin with? Anything over 50watts is ridiculous.

Because Bugeras only come in 120W form and they were the most suited for his style.

Well replace the fuse, if there's nothing, then it's the fuse.

You can check to see if its been blown or not, chances are it has if the indicator LED isn't on. Replace it and try again.
#14
I'm guessing it's the fuse and the tubes (tube blowing up took the fuse with it). Replace the fuse first, if that doesn't help, I'd send it back on warranty (you could replace the tubes with better ones if you're sure it's the tubes and don't mind possibly losing the Behringer warranty).

Quite an ignorant statement. Maybe he gigs? Maybe in the day he can play as loud as he likes? You know some 100watts can do low volume fine, they arent all master volumes.

I replaced the fuse and the lights came on. I looked at the back right away and the first tube (closest to the power switch) was glowing purple at the top and the next one was bright red...... so I shut it down. Im going to call them on the warranty and let them fix the tube situation.

they wont *fix* the tubes. usually, if its less than 6 months old, they will give you new tubes free of charge. usually, a warranty only includes tubes for 6 months.
