So...the little bulb on my Sweet 16+ went out. Of course I had to check to make sure it was only the bulb....so I took the bulb out of my HXDA to put it in the 16+. It worked!

Then, I tried to put the two bulbs back into the respective amps, figuring I would just buy a replacement bulb.

First, the original 'broken" bulb fell inside the combo chassis when attempting to replace it. Second, the "good" bulb broke in my attempts to replace it in the HXDA.

However...more importantly....neither amp worked after my failed techological expertise. Both were dead as a doornail. My amp tech (Dave's Sound Repair....whippany NJ) said that I probably had blown both fuses by trying to put the bulbs in without turning off the power (D'oh!).

So...just a warning to those of you who think you have technical knowledge.......I am now waiting for the repair bill for two amps that were perfectly fine except for one "On" bulb on one of them....before I attempted to repair them.

Oh well. As the title says....don't try this at home!
