What addition information do you need?
Expert:  Tyler replied 4 years ago.
Thanks for your patience. You would have to take the back off to view the amplifiers. They are normally located at the very bottom of the organ and should look like a gray metal box. I know Colonnades were made in the 80's, but not sure if they were made before, so don't know exactly what vintage your model is. If the organ has vacuum tubes on top of the amplifier they will be easy to spot. When powering up the organ, the clear glass tubes will light up and glow. No glow=no go. That said, your organ may not have a tube amplifier, in which case you would have to open up the amp, which is where you get into some really tricky business. Should you attempt ANY of this, do make sure your organ is not plugged in. Safety first. If you do not have a tube amp I advise you to leave it alone and do not try to take it any further. As I was saying in a previous question you asked, a blown fuse on an amp can be just one of many issues that could be causing the problem on your organ. I strongly recommend contacting a Hammond technician to look over the organ. Electronic organs that are 30+ years old, just like most other things, need preventative maintenance to stay in good, playing shape. If it's a cost issue, give them a call, describe the problem and ask for an estimate. They might have to come out and visually inspect it before giving an estimate, but that should be free or of low cost. Again, Hammond technicians are a reputable and honest group of folks and you can trust them.



I stress that this is not a do-it-yourself type project--organs, regardless of age, are terribly complicated inside for people inexperienced with such things. Best of luck!
