    Ah. Sorry. Didn't catch that part. Ouch!

      Hopefully it's just the output tranny. Unless there's some other fail safe circuitry to protect the transformer from damage.
      For the cab jack nut, put some clear nail polish over the threads and then tighten it down. It won't come loose again.

        This is all terribly frustrating. These are so complex that it is almost impossible to open it up and see something obvious. Hopefully you can update us with good news soon.

          I still think there is a fuse hidden away inside the amp that blew that may be harder to find. I am hoping so for you anyway.
          The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

            Couple of drops of super glue on the threads for a temp repair but have one of these incoming won't happen EVER again!

                A hidden fuse took out my Blue Angel at a gig. It took me awhile to locate the fuse. But that was the issue..I plugged into an outlet on the stage and BAM.

                  Those are nice to keep the plug in the jack but to keep the jack from coming off the plate but the nut coming undone, the super glue or clear nail polish is the way to go.
