    But it will not power up at all. No power light, the tubes are not glowing at all,

    Have you checked the fuse on them as they may have blown?

    Lou,

    I have BJ's and use them extensively for gigging - your problem appears to be just a case of either the power tubes or the pre-amp tubes needing to be replaced. Not an expensive job and I would suggest that when you take it in to a tech (or even do it yourself) to look over think about what tubes you want to put in them and get them done at the same time. That way you know that they are all okay.

    Once you have it up and firing you'll love the sound of it - clean is great and wth a nice o/d pedal will get you going.

    Norman

My girlfriend thought I was referring to the girl behind the desk at guitar center once... man, did I almost dig myself into a hole!

    The tubes get knocked out of place. I'd check it with the tech - its more than likely that something happened during shipping.

    When I bought my Marshall on eBay, one of the tubes was broken during shipping and a couple of the solder joints had rattled loose. I took it into a tech who fixed it for $30. Perhaps a loose connection is all you have?
    Thanks. I guess it could be that the shipping box looks ruff

    started a topic Ebay Blues Junior arrives DOA

    Ebay Blues Junior arrives DOA

    I just got the thing this afternoon. I just plugged it in it played about a minute and started krackling like a bowl of rice crispies and cut out no power at all now.

    Seller gives me "it was perfect when it left, file a UPS claim"

    I can see I am going to get nowhere with this guy . I filed for buyer protection with paypal.

    Any Ideas?
