Question about Audio & Video Receivers
Most common cause of no sound is a blown fuse. Check both the fuses with a resistance checker if you have one, sometimes they may look good, but be faulty. If this is the case, you probably need to look for a reason why the fuse blew in the first place. Running a tube rig without a speaker connected is often the problem. the HT fuse will pop almost straight away. Another is using a signal lead instead of a speaker lead to connect your Speaker cab. Always use at least an 18 gauge speaker lead with decent connectors like Switchcraft or Neutrix. NOT a cheapo patch lead. A Failing tube will also commonly cause it to blow. If it happens again, then change the output tubes. If it is not the fuses, and you have experience with repairing valve amps, I suggest you take the head into a repair guy for a look.
