There could be a short in the rectifier diodes or in the transformer itself. Can you take some measurements inside the unit?

Let me know.

Its a marshal 8080 valvestate 80 v and it buzzes and some of the knobs crackle when turned,


Buzzing could be normal for this amp, especially if you have the gain cranked way up (or the volume way up) see if the buzz goes away when you turn the gain/volume down. If not, there is a problem that needs to be properly diagnosed by the amp tech at your local music store. The crackling is also unfortunately rather normal for an amp that's a little older. Oxidation builds up inside the knobs and makes that noise as you turn them. If it only happens when you change settings I wouldn't worry about it, but if it gets bad, a tech guy can clean it out for you.

My bass guitar amp is blowing fuses


This sounds like the main rectifier diode/bridge is shorted. If you can rpovide the make and model, I may be able to give you more details.

Marshall valvestate 8040 - how to change the valve?


Hi chagzuki, you are right, but only when the valves are used as outputs, You amp has transistorised outputs, and a single tube used for distortion/gain. You will get a very long life out of this tube also because its supply voltage that is is used in the valvestate preamps is really quite low. Just enough for it to work really, so the tubes life can be expected to be much longer than normal. It is also a preamp tube, not an output tube, so they rarely need changing. If you ever did want to change it(dont bother), it is located on the PCB inside the unit. You have to slide the sleeve off to get at it. Get yourself a JCM800=the best guitar amp ever built(imho), then yo got pure Marshall tone, and output tubes that need changing every 6 months or so. Now go RIFF OUT and dont worry about your valvestates' "valve"

regards
Graeme
