My amp fell forward and the (knob side) hit the ground. Now there is no sound, but everything lights up.
You have probably broken some of the pots. You will need to take it in to be serviced or if you have experience take the amp apart and take the circuit board out. Examine the solder side where the control pots are. Hopefully you didn't break the pots themselves and the solder joints just need to be redone. Also look for broken traces near the pots. They look like little roads which they are for electrons.If they are broken you can bridge them with short pieces of tinned wire and if the circuit board is cracked it can be Crazy glued. Look for all the broken parts and don't miss any. If the pots are broken, Take the broken ones into an electronics supplier and ask for exact replacements. If its a tube amp look for tubes that are loose in their sockets and broken tubes. Absolutely do not work on the amp with it plugged in to the wall (no power running to it) If its anything worse than that, take it in to be repaired as you need schematics, test equipment and direct replacement parts to do a proper job. Hope this helps.
