HI,

Occasional lurker here. Have an original Minitwatt (4 tubes) with horns.

It just blew a fuse under light load. replaced and blew immediately on power up.

I'm in UK.

Hard to find shops who actually repair things any more. I have no electronic repair skills.

Got any suggestion? bit open ended, I know.

Thanks for any help!

I'm going with..."it's always a tube". I'd pull the tubes and see if still pops the fuse. Is the fuse black or just opened?

first fuse was just opened. The second one popped louder and is black.

Do you mean pull all the tubes out and turn it on with no tubes?
