SOURCE: My Valveking isnt working at

There is a fuse in the heater power to the tubes and also the pilot light. In some of the Valvekings it is labeled F203... not sure on your particular unit. In this one it is shown as a 3 amp fast blow. Since it feeds a bridge rectifier diode, it is possible a diode may be shorted or a couple electrolytic capacitors that follow the bridge.

SOURCE: No sound. Screen face lights don't light up.

If it is within warranty take it back to the shop. If not then its going to need an engineer to look at it. Its not worth fooling around inside a tube amp as the capacitors can retain lethal voltages even when unplugged.

Why is my amp making a static like sound /and pop that comes and goes ,but only when the amp is hot


Do not mess with this yourself. Take it to a repair shop. The switch needs to be replaced, at a minimum and possibly other parts. There is lethal voltage involved in a tube amp.

I have a peavey valvenmaster head that was playing at very low volumes even when cranked up pretty loudly. i replaced all of the tubes with new matched groove tubes and the volume and tone improved. ...


You start by downloading the schematic here:

http://elektrotanya.com/peavey_valveking_100_212.pdf/download.html

Scroll down to the link "Get Manual" and download the schematic. Note that it has several pages of parts list preceeding the schematic.

Next, put a 150 Watt incandescent bulb in series with the power cord to act as a current limiting fuse. Now replace the fuse and proceed with testing. You may find that one or more filter caps have shorted. Also pay particular attention the the BIAS power supply. You should see about -35 to -40 volts. Note that the series lamp will come on if excess current is being drawn and voltages will be low if the lamp lights. If the BIAS supply has failed, it is possible your power tubes have been damaged.

* ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR AMPLIFIER BEFORE REMOVING TUBES *

If you can see that a tube is definitely not lighting up then it may be blown. If this amp has seen regular use then it may be time for a new set of tubes. Try replacing the 12AX7s first before committing to a new set of 6L6s. Though, if you have the cash available, a new set of power tubes isn't a bad idea either. I would advise you to do the preamp tubes first and play through the amp for a few days first before changing the power tubes.

Keep in mind... if a tube (or tubes) has blown, there could be another issue in the circuit. Swapping in a new tubes is a quick way to determine that. Then it would be time to take it to your local repair shop.

Good luck and keep rockin'!
