I have 2 tweaker 15's, bought brand new, and with in the last 2 weeks, both have developed the same problem for the 1st time...
I am playing at home and I put the amps on stand by, and when I took them off of standby, one of the amps had no sound - lights on, checked all cables and connections, even plugged in to the effects return but no sound, even after shutting down and checking next day....checked all fuses and all were fine...
That amp is at the shop (with 2 month repair backlog)
So last night I am playing the other tweaker and out of the blue, the sound starts failing, almost like a bad cable or a noise gate set with an incorrect threshold...
I put the amp on standby for a moment and then back on and the sound is full power.....this last for about 5 min and then the sound starts to fail again and I fix it by momentarily hitting standby....
I am afraid this amp is about to die now like my other tweaker 15....
Any ideas what this could be? Why does standby resolve the issue temporarily?
any other ideas for troubleshooting are appreciated....
I love my tweakers and really hope this isn't a power transformer issue...

maybe just the standby switch? can you test the switch? also test the preamp tubes - check all of them but could be the PI 12ax7. good luck
