Power light blinks, control pod wont power on and no audio
It seems that this problem has occured many times and I have hunted down an answer:
The glue within the amp turns brown when in contact with high temperatures. This brown substance is actually conductive, therefore you get currents all over the place and eventually blows your amp.
The fuse will also blow, requiring you to replace that.
To fix this, you either install fans (costly?) or use it in a cool/cold room. Either should work, but do not go buying the worlds biggest fans, as it may not be the case for all of you unhappy customers out there.
Hope this helps,
