Take it to a repair workshop yourself. If you're extremely lucky it's only a fuse. More likely it will be the power supply caps, and probably some other stuff along with it.

Im sorry for chaning the subject but it wont let me post a new thread. I have a 120 gfx crate that has a problem with the DSP effects. Today i turned my amp on and they worked fine, two hours later when i turned my amp on again they didnt work, i am not very literate in electronics but im not paying to fix this thing so please even vague suggestions are very welcome.

Take it to a tech, but based on my experience of the average guitar tech (I get to fix their repairs usually) they won't have a clue with the DSP section. I hope it's under warranty. I won't touch this sort of work myself as it's not worth the grief.

before you do that, unplug and re-plug each connector (please, one at a time....). i've seen several crate amps with oxidized contacts on the connectors causing flaky problems like that.
