Hey there.

I have a Hughes & Kettner Switchblade head, which up until this morning, worked great. The problem is that it won't power on at all. It hasn't been knocked around at all. I was wondering if anyone could help me sort this out, or if anyone's come across a similar scenario.

Thanks.

Maybe try another power socket and or power cable if possible? If not it's probably just a fuse...

Yeah it sounds like a fuse to me. Just wanted to be sure...

If the fuse is fine, it could be a tube. When my Mesa F-100 stopped working one time it wouldn't power on because of a tube, i replaced that, then it blew a fuse. Bad times...

Lol. What a picky amp. The only reason I suggested trying an alternate socket/power cable is it's small beans to test, and could potentially save him the pocket change for a new fuse.

Yeah, same thing with feedback. Try different sockets, moving the amp around and other stuff.

That mesa is long gone though.
