Today I tried to switch my DT50 212 on. I flipped the power switch to 'on', while in standby mode The powerlight went on for a second and turned dark. The powerlight stays dark but the tubes are glooming. When I switch standby off, a humming comes from the speakers.

Playing a guitar does not work.

Bad tube is my guess. May be drawing too much current, causing the voltage drop, which keeps the light from staying on. Humming and no sound is a pretty sure sign of bad tubes.

Thanks for the tip but unfortunately that wasn't it. I exchanged all tubes but the problem stayed.

Yeesh. Perhaps a bad transformer then. How old is your amp?

The transformer was ok, I checked power cables and connectors and found a bad power plug.

 

btw - The Amp was purchased February 2014. Thx for the support

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.
