    This is a very stupid question, and I am sorry for taking your time, but should the standby do anything. When I flip mine on, I don’t get any lights, the fans doesn’t kick in, and the tubes don’t do glow or anything. Is my amp screwed up? It has never given me problems but am I hurting it?

    I have no idea what the standby would do on a 400+ but on my SVT 2 Pro when it is on standby the fan comes on, the front panel lights come on and the tubes glow.
     
  3. Um....is your amp on?
    :confused:

    Yes it does have power. There is however a noticeable effect when Itake it off standby
