Hi there I recently purchased the Roaster Head after selling my Combo. The head was accidentally turned on without a cab. Channel one and two were had no sound. I replace the V2 Preamp tube because it was cracked. Channel one and Two now work. The issue I have now is the Fx Loop does not work. From reading on the Forum it recommended replacing V5 since it powers the FX Loop. I did and it's still not working. I swapped V4 With the old V5 to see if it was that and nothing changed. I am at a wall. Could anyone help me fix this issue? Thank you.

I figured it out. The Bypass switch was not turned on. :x For future reference this is what the guy's from Five Star Guitars in Beaverton, Or sent to me.

A few common causes of the Roadster FX loop not working would be...

Bypass switch in the back needs to be set to "active" instead of bypass.

Make sure the Loop "Send Level" pot in the back is at least at 12 O'Clock
(Middle/ Straight up).

V5 is the preamp tube for the Send & Receive of the Loop. Try replacing it
with known good.

Try it without the footswitch. It can control on/off of loop if plugged in
and removing it will take a shorted FS out of the options.

Clean 1/4 input for Loop in back.
