My DT25 was sounding like it was at half volume (I am not using half volume mode), then last night the volume went completely, halfway through a gig!

There was still some slight sound coming from the amp..... But I could whisper over it, it was that quiet! 

 

I am using my Pod HD500 connected via Line6 link. 

 

I had to put the HD500 directly through the PA and everyone said (out front) what a great sound I had!! :)

So, unless I can find out what is wrong with the amp,  I shall be going direct to PA from now on! 

 

Anybody know what might be the cause of this problem?...... I am suspecting valves, as I can still hear a slight sound from it. If it were fuses or any other component, then I am sure it would be just dead with no sound at all?

...check the valves, because if it were fuses sound will stop at all ( you re correct ). Probably one power tube is broken...

I just had a similar thing happen with my DT50, here's the thread. Could be the tubes for sure. You may want to try to turn it off for a bit and retry. Or maybe even try the factory reset by powering up while holding the topo and pent/tri switch. Amps in general can be of the flaky variety, lol.

That's the problem with valves!..... They can be as you say "flakey"!  That's why I have now decided to get a Line 6 L2m and use it for a direct monitor!
