Could be just a fuse. I think you need to try find out why it died. If it was ran over by a truck, it's probably dead.

What kind of amp is it?
How is it acting? Not turning on at all?

Well actually it appears to be the guitar now. The amp turns on and everything but there is no noise out of the amp at all when I play the guitar. I would try to play another guitar through the amp but I do not have one sad.gif. The tuner also shows straight Bb's coming out of my guitar even when nothing is being played. Its an epiphone special II (or as I call a POC model, piece of crap) and i've never had problems like this before with it. I checked the interior but my electronics expertise is minimal and I wouldn't know if something was wrong if I did see it. I would love to throw one on my credit card but I am paying my way through school and just sold 2 guitars so buying another would be kind of backward tongue.gif

For a 70$ flat rate to look at it tongue.gif you've gotta have it to spend it tongue.gif . The guitar is only worth like 70 haha

Connect your cable to the amp without a guitar and make sure that when you touch the tip of the cable it makes some noise. In that way you'll be sure if the amp still works.

Yeah I tried that, that is what led me to believe it was the guitar and not the amp... I just sold 2 guitars the epiphone is the one I decided to keep as it would be the least in value... All that money went towards school tuiton and I do not graduate until july so I am pretty much the definitiion of the starving student. Looks like I may be out of luck sad.gif

Do you know some body who's fit with electronics and could check it? On, and did you turn the volume knob? tongue.gif

This was my first thought after he wrote it's not the amp ph34r.gif

So be sure to check all knobs etc.

Hmmm maybe its the jack in the guitar...If amp makes buzzing noise when you plug in the cable and touch the other jack of the cable with your hand - amp works...
