My Orange amp recently stopped working, as in no sound

My Orange Rockerverb 100 amp recently stopped working as in no sound was coming out. The light remained on but no sound. Its not the speakers because they worked with a different amp. Plus the amp smelled like something had burnt. Any thoughts?

The pilot light means NOTHING other than the switch is on and unit is getting power from a receptacle.

There is an electronic failure that requires servicing and until unit is opened and analyzed we can''t help you further. Take it to a shop or a person experienced in electronic repair.

Likely the power amp section has had a failure. There are likely several bad components and it will take an experienced electronics person to weed out all the bad parts.

The light has little to do with the condition of the unit. It MAY only indicate that power switch is on or that one of several voltages from a power supply is present.

My Guitar Research 30R has started to "brown out" after about 20 min of continuous use. It fades to little or no volume. Sometimes it comes back... sometimes not until shut down for awhile.


brown outs are usually power supply issues I don'y have schematic but i would check tube in ps in the old days we would look for leaking capacitors or spray suspect resistor or caps with a spray chill in a can (and be very careful not to hit tubes) defective part will work. Since this is done when amp is on, one need to remember that fatal voltages and currents are exposed. This is not for causal or inexperienced persons.
extreme caution required. (I am providing info but am not responsible for any one doing it)

Rockaverb 50 amp head. 1/4 inch plug tip broken off and stuck in 8 ohm socket. How do I open head & casing to remove tip. Are there any diagrams available online that show correct procedure.


actually there are a few ways of doing this that require no disassembly ( and i better get a good rateing for revealing these secrets haha ) check it out. take a Q-Tip and break off one of the fluffy heads. Apply some super glue to the end you broke off and shove that into the 1/4"jack and essentially glue it to the qtr inch tip. let this sit for a second and pull. should come right out IF NOT you can also try to find a screw ( usually a wood screw ) and you can thread that into the hole of the tip of the connector. if this doesnt get it out post back so i'll know and i'll walk you through how to remove the chassis and pcb's safetly. good luck!

I have done a lot of searches for any information on this unit and cannot even find a user manual to get information to help you. A 100 watt convertor sounds like it is too large and may not be the right one. A light coming on for a second and going off could be just the discharging of the power supply capacitors. I am sure others are searching for information and this is a poor company to not have even a manual available online. Do remember this only has a 6.5 inch speaker so don't expect it to be as loud as a larger guitar amp. If you can get photos of the connectors I might be able to help you, but with no manuals or other info the experts here will not be able to find any information. These amps are only $60 new. If a fuse went, there is another failure causing it. I will try a few more times to find at least a manual.

UNPLUG THE AMP
First you need to check any visible fuses either in the plug or on the back of the amp.
If you have an electrical testing screwdriver or meter you can test the fuse. If this sounds like gobbledegook (daft talk) then stop and take it to the dealer where you bought it.
If you can remove the fuse or fuses then replace them if it is obvious they have blown - dark and kinda burnt looking.
If replacing the fuses doesn't fix it - STOP.
Valve amps are serious bits of electrical hardware - they are not for home repairs - take it to a GOOD dealer / repair shop that deals with valve amp - nowhere else should play with it. When they have it sorted you can have the valves re-biased/changed to adjust the amp for the sound you want - yes the valves can change it.
Hope this helps - don't mess with it - even when turned OFF valve amps can give you a shock!!
Keep on Rockin'

My Rocker 30 has been working just fine up until now. I go to turn on the amp and I get no sound whatsoever. The tubes and ht fuse are fine. I've looked at some forums online and they say the fuse might be...


Apparently you have tested the tubes on a tester and usually there is a pilot light that would not be lit if fuse was blown.

Common problems are bad jacks and switch contacts on power amp INPUT or INSERT jacks. Also circuit board cracks and bad solder joints are fairly common, especially where volume controls attach to the circuit boards.

More expensive things are things like fried speaker if volume was played too loud. An ohmmeter test of the speaker would tell if the voice coil has blown.
