I was playing and then all of a sudden the app made this very loud pop and then the amp didn't work. There was no smoke. The main fuse looked OK and I didn't see any loose wires so I'm not sure exactly what happened. Hopefully someone can help me out on this.

The amplifier had a failure.
Take it to a tech.
Attached schematic.


Does the amp still turn on?  Is there any sound at all coming out of the speaker?

Looks like it's off to tech land. Anyone know a good repair shop in Atlanta?
