My JVM410C died on me. Sniff.

Bought used a few months ago. Needs a full re tube...have done the pre's. but not the big bottles yet. Anyway when I put in the pre's (a week after it went down) I noticed the front most fuse (closest to the control panel) had blown. I'm hoping its just maybe an EL34 has shorted out n popped a fuse.

My question is this...if the amps been off for a few weeks will it be de charged and safe for me to remove and replace the popped fuse and put in some new EL34's?? I know it'll need a rebias but hoping to avoid this for a few weeks as the full set of tubes is expensive enough at a time when I'm skint. Sniff. Maybe a new fuse and quad of EL34's will get me back up and running and me not fry myself?

As I've told you already. ;)

There won't be lethal voltages after a few weeks on a JVM.
You could also measure it beforehand.

Get some new power tubes, replace the fuse and hopefully it would be fine then!

I don't know that from memory.
Just take it out it will be written on the fuse.

I'd check the screen resistors first (not gone open)
Put the new fuse in, minus output tubes and see if fuse goes again.
If it's ok then replace the outputs, set bias in safe range and play.
