You would NOT use a stereo cable to plug in your guitar.

The stereo cable would carry the battery voltage back to the amp and MAYBE cause the fuse to blow.

You use a MONO instrument cable for your guitar.

The ring connection is use to complete the circuit to turn on the battery in most guitars.

Replace the fuse ONCE and get the proper instrument cable (NOT consumer audio cable) for your guitar.

If fuse blows again, take amp to shop for service.

Can i connect 2 (2x12) cabs rated @ 4ohms each to my avt50 head?

No, the ATV50 head is rated for 4 ohms total. Using both 4 ohm cabinets at once will fry your amp.

No, the ATV50 head is rated for 4 ohms total. Using both 4 ohm cabinets at once will fry your amp. Your only option would be to rewire your cabs internally to 16 ohms each by connecting the speakers in parallel, but that would cut your amp's power in half.

I have a MG100HDFX head, with the cabinet that came with it and the other I plugged in, the amp sounded fine for about 5mins while i was warming up. Then it started to fade in and out with a very fuzzy...

I would first suspect the head... try driving a different speaker to isolate which is at fault.

If unit starts working when cooled down, it may be going into thermal protection due to any of several causes including a defect or overdriving it.

Pluged in but no sound comes out whats up?

Could be that the male plug isn't connecting in its recepticle, or perhaps an internal wire or other connection is broken. If nervous about looking inside and perhaps resolving the problem, take the guitar to a qualified repair shop

Marshall Lead 100 Mosfet head, no sound.

are you popping fuses??? check the effects, preamp, and power amp jacks to make sure they (even if not in use) are Normally Closed. Sometimes they loose their contact to ground on the Tip of the jack, which opens the circuit and interrupts the normal function. then check the input jack for good contact to the pcb and solder joints, as well as all pots (especially the volume). if all this checks out, and it still is having issues, i would then move on to the grounding resistors (solder welds can heat up and break as these resistors get hot) and resolder them to the board. still no output, then diodes / rectifier / filter caps.

Always check your cables and connectors on them to make sure the cable is good and the connectors are not loose. This sounds like a bad cable or connection between the line output of your mixer and input to your stereo.
