Problem with Roadster 2x12 Combo

Post by _AJ_ » Thu Sep 06, 2018 2:03 pm

Hey,

I have a 100W 2x12 Roadster Combo, and was wondering if anybody has any ideas about the problem I've been having. When I turn on the power switch, the red power light doesn't come on, there is no sound, and the power tubes don't light up. The channel lights and fan do come on, and the preamp tubes and rectifier tubes light up. For a while, if I banged on the amp with my fist above the power switch, sometimes it would come on. And then sometimes the power and light would go off and the sound would die out while I was playing. Now it won't turn on at all. I replaced all of the tubes with new ones, and it still doesn't work. The channel lights and footswitch continue working during all of this. It seems like something was loose and now went out completely.

If anybody has seen anything like this or has any idea what the problem is, I would greatly appreciate hearing about it. Thanks.
