its the reverb tank spring, look where it is connected on the other side. this will give you an idea as to where it was connected. solder it back on.

That is probably a momentary switch that is dirty and sticking. These onboard effects on guitar amps are usually nothing more than a computer sound card and I've found bad connections going to and from them as well. I do think that switch is dirty and sticking, though.

Both those LIKELY run on a 5 volt supply within the unit. Check for the presence of that voltage... some new stuff MIGHT be 3.3 volts DC, but you should find those voltages. If missing, it may be a shorted electrolytic filter cap OR the filter cap associated with creating the 5 volts from the supply. You really need the schematic for this... try to procure one.

Solid state amps are very subject to blowing out the output transistors if speaker leads get shorted. Take it in for repair.

Power supply capacitors failed. This is a common problem with 1990's crates, also the power on "POP".

There is a short somewhere, check your wiring and solder points.

If sure that power is reaching and getting into unit, then confirm that a signal is also reaching unit. If both are positive, then your gear is FUBAR if signal is going into correct input.

1. Sounds like it's the input jack., but it could be the volume knob. Have you tried turning Gain1 and Gain 2 or the Clean Channel volume? Try them first when you're plugged in to the jack on the left , then when you're plugged in the back. If none of these work, it's most likely the preamp. 2. Even if the preamp is shot, there's a quick fix - get a guitar preamp or an effects pedal - they have volume and tone controls. 3. Finally - many pros just plug into the aux jack(on the rear panel) and control the volume and tone through their instruments. Hope one of these works. Good Luck.
