Question about Marshall MG100HDFX 100-Watt Amplifier Head
It sounds like something internal on the foot switch is shorting out (or a lead wire has come off) or some where in that line , it has been severed. you can check continuity with an ohm meter. butfirst open the foot switch and just give it a visual to see if any leads are severed. you may just need to solder it back. - foot pedals get alot of winding up and unwinding. its common for something to disconnect. that would explain all the issues your having. good luck

Some of the Marshall equipment uses computer size fans and even on occasion the same connection.
Take the bad fan with you to a computer repair shop it will be much cheaper than a marshall part they should be able to help you out

Testimonial: "that sounds like the best way to do it..will just take fan to computer shop and try and get a replacement...thanks for the assistance"
If you connected an external speaker plug from one into the same type plug on another amp, you have driven signals backward into the amp that was off... NOT into the speaker in that unit.
The usual result is blown parts in the amp that is off.
Some amps have their own speaker cable that you can unplug to connect to another amp and that is fairly safe. NEVER run an amp without a speaker load on it.

Well, your problem isn't very descriptive to help troubleshoot online, but first question would be; are you using the correct size jack? The second would be have they worked before? If the answer is yes to both questions, then the problem might be the jack itself on your amp. There is a prong inside the headphone line that hugs the plug to your phones. If the prong has loosened enough where the connection is poor or not at all, you will not get any sound. If the headphone jack has NEVER worked before, than it sound like a wiring issue on your board somewhere. If you are not familiar with a soldering gun, then I would take your amp in to get it fixed. should be a minor quick fix costing anywhere between $15-$30 to have a shop do it. Hope this helps. (also try different headphones if you haven't already. Could be a bad pair)

You can either oil it up OR replace it for around 20$
Both ways involve removing the amp from the casing by unscrewing the 6 screws on top and sliding it out and then getting the fan out
locate the fan; locate the 4 outside screw covers that are next to the fan grill screws and pop them open. Remove the four screws that are under those plastic covers. The fan should separate. Take Fan out and remember how it was in there.
To oil: lift the sticker and locate the rubber plunger in the middle of the fan; remove it. Then, put ONE drop of regular 3-1oil NOT-wd-40, pb blaster or bike lube. re-assemble
To replace: just unplug old fan and then replace with new fan. I recommend replacing the fan when it gets to the point of bearing noise because oil doesn't always fix this.

This is likely a bad switch contact in the headphone jack... they are really poor quality in most amps... plastic case and EASILY damaged by side forces on the jack. REplacement is the solution.
