Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, have you considered / tried a RESET? Still, let's try the basics. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):• gently tap/exercise the MASTER VOLUME and the AMP DRIVE controls;• try/exercise all the other jacks;• plug in a pair of headphones and determine if there is sound. This is both a test and try of a fix. Do the plug in/unplug a couple of times. There is a hidden speaker cutoff switch inside the headphone jack;• connect the OUTPUT RIGHT and/or L/MONO jacks to an amplifier;• connect an external source to the INPUT RIGHT and/or L/MONO jacks.All other tests would be on the internal circuitry and with the use of a multi-meter.
