Cornet 2 won't power up.
« on: 13 Jan 2014, 12:26 am »
Hi all, I am having a problem with my Cornet 2. When I powered it up, the red light flashed briefly, then nothing.
No sound , no tubes lit, nada.
Checked the fuse, it is good.
Not sure how best to contact Jim, so am hoping he sees this or my Facebook message.
I have no DIY skills, this unit was purchased in 2012 through Audiogon from Jim.

Try a new rectifier tube? Check this recent thread:

Thanks Jostber.
Tried a whole different tube set, and checked fuse.
Jim has responded to my email and has offered to take a look at it for me.
Great customer service!

Just shipped to Hawaii from Michigan.
Probably not there yet. Hope to hear from Jim when he gets time to look at it.

I got the Cornet 2 back from Jim today. All is well and apparently, I don't know a blown fuse from an unblown one.
Thank You for the great servive, Mr Hagerman!
