Question about Fender Frontman 65R 65W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amplifier
How do I get my Macbook Pro to play out through my Fender Frontman amp: what jacks do I need?
Simple: connect the headphones out (3.5mm jack) to the input jack of your fender (6.3 jack). By doing this you will loose one channel so you better generate a mono signal inside your computer before. Electrically this is no problem, nothing will be damaged. Turn the gain and volume knobs down and apply a signal from your Mac. Gently increase gain and volume. Et voila wonderful mono sound through a guitar amp

There is a protection thermistor in the circuit to keep it from over-heating, this is why it works again when it cools. Check and make sure you are not covering any ventilation holes, or if the unit has a fan, make sure it is working.

You don't say if you are using a footswitch or not... If you are, the switch, cables and connectors are suspect.
If you are NOT using the controller, the switch contacts on the footswitch jack in the 212 are suspect as being intermittent contacts.
If the contact is not making, the OD switch on the unit will NOT work either.
These jacks, and their contacts are JUNK and often cause problems.
Open the unit and increse the tension of the contact springs.

The power amp input jack takes "line level" input BUT is monaural (single channel). The output of an ipod is Stereo. Hence you would have to "mix" the two channels before connecting to the Fender. Mixing does NOT mean just tying the two channels together. A minimu thing would be a passive resistive mixer consisting of a resistor from each of the IPOD channels to the common point going to the input of the Fender. Remember if you plug into the Fender power amp input you DISCONNECT the preamp and other circuits and would ONLY hear the IPOD input.

SOURCE: Hi. Fender Frontman amp suddenly
This is a very simple unit: a power source of an linear design, a preamplifier with tone and distort control and an 10 watt integrated amplifier.
If the unit is completely dead then the fault is in the power section: cable, switch or source. To find out which you must check them all with a simple multimeter: cable and switch with an ohmmeter (the resistance should be 0 if good) and the source with a voltmeter - (check the presence of the 2 voltages (25 and 15 volt) at its outputs.
Here you can find the schematic of a very similar one
The only difference is the final amplifier chip.
