Orange TH30 won't turn on

Post by dharlow90 » Wed Oct 24, 2018 4:26 am

This has been an ongoing intermittent problem for a while now. I've already replaced fuses, fuse holder, on / off switch, and power tubes. I just got it back from the amp tech today, he said it was fixed after I waited 5 months. Only to bring it home and find out the problem was not fixed. I contacted orange months ago to find an authorized orange repair tech in the area and they only knew of one in the state (Oklahoma). Which was the guy that did the "work" on my amp. I've got alot of experience building guitar pedals but I'm stumped on this one.

5 months seems excessive, especially when its not fixed. Have you tried different outlets to rule that out? Voltage needs to be traced in the amp, which is dangerous if you’re not experienced or careful working in it. Check all connections.
