SOURCE: guitar amp no sound or lighting

Ah yes: complete catastrophe. Usually when everything is not working, it is a single reason and when that single reason is fixed, so is the amp.

Based on what you tell me, I am going to say you have a bad power tube. And I will even go as far to say that you buy a set of tubes and play on them as long as you can. If so, then you not only burned up the tube, but weakened the power section and may have a slooow tube frier. I always tell customers: modern tubes have an effective life of less that 1200 or so hours and that varies. Replace the tubes once per year if you gig with the amp: period. Otherwise, guys like me (doing repairs) stay busy and the tube companies get rich selling tubes to amps with weakened power sections.
It sounds like you burned a power tube and blew a fuse. First, you need a new set of power tubes and some extra fuses (go to Radio Shack and set the value you need in SLOW BLOW fuses).
Then, replace all the power tubes. Don't worry about biasing yet, we are just seeing if there is a problem. Next, replace the fuse.
Turn on the amp and play on it at various volumes and settings. If all is well, take the amp to a tech and get it rebiased. If you can afford it, pay to have the grid/plate and other resistors changed so the power section will be like new (clean slate with new tubes). Your amp will love you for it.
Almost all of the amps I have worked on for performance problems (cant keep tubes to stay alive for very long) are directly related to end user use. When you use a tube until it blows it ALWAYS TAKES SOMETHING WITH THE TUBE WHEN IT GOES (like the power section components). The compents will be weakened and the tubes will 'wear' at different rates that can even move them out of the 20% tolerence they must be within to sound good. 99% of the time a board repair with a retube after a catastrophe fixes the amp until the next time it is 'run into the ground'. Tube amps are NOT invinceble: they are weak compared to solid state and expensive to own. But we love tubes because they sound great. I have solid state to knock around on, when when it counts, I play only with tubes. I have spent hundreds on good tubes because you do get what you pay for.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: No sound from speaker, but works with external speaker plugged in

It sounds to me like you have blown the internal speaker.

SOURCE: Amp volume drop with flabby bass sound.

1) can happen if the speaker is dying - voice coil defective or magnet needs recharging. happens sometimes with low quality speakers. 
2) faulty pre-amp section can reduce overall gain resulting in lower output volume.
3) for old amps dry solders in pre-amp & power amp section can have the same effect.
4) faulty coupling and filter capacitors can severely effect frequency response too.

KRK Rokit monitor has no sound from bottom speaker (the larger speaker for lows and mids) the unit powers up fine and i get sound through the tweeter.

What you are describing is a total component failure of something in the crossover board. You cannot really check a crossover without an oscilloscope and a frequency generator. In a lot of cheap speaker systems, there is no crossover board attached to the woofer. In your case it appears that a low pass filter is present on the woofer.

Simmons sd9k LCD/brain issue?

The display is usually held against the circuit board with 2 or more strips of multiconductor rubber. it may just need the clamping tabs tweeked to make a more secure contact. If the drum set fell, it could have shifted the circuit board in relation to the display. Parience and careful observation will allow you open it up and make that tweek.

Try swapping the monitors inputs. if the other speaker starts popping on the same output it'll show that the mixer may have a problem. otherwise return for repair.below is a link to the manual. check out the troubleshooting section pg 13

Sounds like you have a problem in the amplifier section. Could be a bad capacitor or a floating ground. As a charge builds it will create the hiss and when it discharges, it surges through the amp causing it to shut down. You'll probably want to send them in for service.

I need to remove one power amp module from an older KRK Expose E8. The obvious screws have been removed but the module still feels firmly attached to the cabinet. Is there something that I am missing?

If you have unscrewed all the seating screws of the circuit board, pull out three knobs at the rear side [HF SHELF/SYSTEM LEVEL ADJUST/HF LEVE ADJUST] and rings screwed to the switches of LF Level adjust, and the screws of XLR socket. Amp with its seating frame wcan be pulled out.

Hopefully you powered your monitors from the SAME receeptacle as this device.

If one powers monitors at one end of a room from one receptacle and their mixer from the other end, due to noise spikes on the power lines, one can have one or the other damaged.

ALWAYS power connected equipment from the same receptacle source.

Your unit uses a 250ma fuse according to the schematics. Replace it with an identical type fuse. You have to open the unit and you will find it on the board in fuse clips. It is a glass type, easily seen and replaced.

NOTE: If it blows right away, take unit for repair.

This unit is very poorly grounded, much like consumer electronics so one needs to be careful what you connect to it.

I recently bought a TD-6 set, everything works

I have repaired one of these before.

On the version I repaired, there was a TINY trimpot accessable thru a hole that is semi-hidden. In the case I had, someone had actually destroyed the trimpot by forcing too big a screwdriver into the hole and smashing the trimpot.

It was relatively easy to open the unit and replace the broken trimpot...

WARNING, if that set has those "foam" cones under the snare type heads, expect trouble with them and the cones are NOT available anywhere for replacement. Essentially you have to MAKE your own now...

Look for a failure in the power supply section. You will need electronic experience or someone who has that.

If the fuse is glass and blows silvery inside thia means a direct short inside. SUSPECT the input rectifier or filter capacitor(s).

Do testing with a 100 watt light bulb in series with the hot side of the power cord to avoid blowing fuses.

Low volume on acoustic and jazz amp type

Ok, so I hope you realize the Fender FM25DSP guitar amplifier is an "entry level" NON-valve amp with a DSP chip that has model shaping tones. I am sorry but this is a toy and Fender did not spend the tens of thousands of US dollars to have built-in tones that truly 'kill". This not digital modelling like Line 6 or Fractal Audio did and so you have a problem from the start. This amp was always intended as an entry level amp for the bedroom only and never to be used on stage.
Jazz and acoustic modes have some similarities requiring mid-range boost and some rounding. Not easy to achieve with a DSP chip that costs about US$10 to manufacture. Sorry, consider using the amp for practice but look at a more serious valve amps for live on stage
