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.

I mostly play at home  and am always having fun learning how to play guitar so when I post a reply to try and help give ideas you know where I'm coming from. Rock-On!! Oh, and if I don't respond promptly I'm probably playing guitar or my computer locked up from multitasking 'cause I'm using Gear Box, HD500 Edit, Audacity and tab filled browsers all at the same time, Hahahaaaa. Surprisingly enough my 'puter handles the load more times than not. Lastly I'm not a salesman, I'm not trying to sell anyone anything here.

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!
