    T5 Infinium amp Mains light starts blinking about 90 sec after turning on power. It's not connected to headphones or speakers so cannot determine if there is no audio or not yet.

    Any suggestions? does it need to be repaired?

      PedroRodrigues Hi progodelic thank you for your post, I would first suggest to first replace the EL84 power tube and the 12AX7 preamp tube, this last one may be replaced with other variations though. If after the power tubes are replaced and the front light keep blinking that might indicate that you unit might not be operating as it should and must be inspected to access what is causing this issue. To request an inspection on your unit please follow the link below: I hope this helps. Thank you

      PedroRodrigues Hi ALEXPS1973, Thank you for your post, please ponder that the general answer is no, for the most part, 6L6 and 6v6 tubes are not interchangeable as they don't bias close enough. Amps are calibrated to use specific valves (6v6, 6L6, EL84). I hope this helps. Thank you

    Can I determine when my V22 was made via the serial number?

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi mckaynj1, yes it is possible to use the serial number to determine the date of manufacture. The first 4 numerical digits will be the date code, in this instance 1401. The first 2 numbers will represent the year of manufacture and the remaining two the month of manufacture. With this in mind your V22 would have been made in January of 2014.

        RickRossBell Hey, are you also able to help get knobs? No one at TCE is willing to do anything to help get knobs. You're the 3rd triber I've reached out to. Nothing so far.

      Dale_M Sorry to hear of this, it sounds like the internal PSU is dying, if this is brand new and within 30 days you would be quicker to go back to the seller, if you are outside this period please go to the above Support tab and select a Service ticket for submission

    Hi there! I bought a 1990 infinium new a few months ago. 

    Still has the factory tubes. Today after half hour of use, in red channel output lost all bass and gain. The sound was really bad and thin. Immediately i checked the green channel, and with the gain at 5 and volume at 7 it was super quiet. 

    All infinium LEDs are off so i guess I don't have any power tubes broken. Is there something wrong with the preamp tubes?


    What are my options here? Thanks

      Nigel67 Hi Meerkat2022. Please submit a technical support ticket and we will be able to help you further and if the unit is found to be faulty, advise you about getting the unit repaired as if you purchased it brand new just a few months ago it should still be under warranty. To submit a ticket, this can be done by clicking on the support tab at the top of the page. A new window will open. Scroll down and click on the Technical Support tab. Many thanks

      DroneShotFPV My 1990 Infinium(bought off Amazon) did the same sort of thing. I got decent sound / volume, but it was NOWHERE near what a 100 watt Tube amp should be.. I have owned several, and know for a fact that it wasn't even a 3rd of the other 100 watt amps I have owned or played were.. So.... naturally I did what I always do, troubleshoot... I discovered that my tubes needed to be reseated. I pulled ALL my Valves out, and gently put them all back, 1 at a time, verifying perfect seating of the valves. Once I was done, I cranked her up, tried again, and nearly went completely deaf... I suggest trying the same thing IF you are comfortable pulling your Valves / Tubes out and re-installing them.

      NicJonesMT Hi Chris. Unfortunately we cannot provide any information on availability or pricing.
      Your best option would be to contact Sweetwater directly to see if they can provide an ETA on when they will receive stock.
      Alternatively you can find a full list of our resellers at the following link:

    • chrisbliss7
      chrisbliss7 Yes I followed the link and no no one has it. I ordered the last possible one on Amazon because they did say they had one in stock now they're saying that it's unavailable or they can't find it. I just want to know what's up at the Factory are they done making amps? Is Bugera going out of business?

        PedroRodrigues Hi chrisbliss7, thank you for your post, please ponder that this is unrelated to the fact that "Bugera going out of business?" is more related to stock management from the resellers and shipping issues that all manufactures face on a post-pandemic work. From what I'm aware Sweetwater allows a pre- reservation. Sorry I couldn't help more.

      NicJonesMT Hi Howiemco
      I wouldnt recommend doing this. Most splitters are designed to work with Line/Inst level signals, not Power amp outputs. Doing so could potentially damage your equipment.

    my bugera 1990 infinium led lights turn on and off, it's like if the amp is checking the tubes  also I noticed the power tubes are glowing a slight blue color  is this normal, the tubes are the original bugera tubes that came with the amp

    • hdnyc2003
      PedroRodrigues Hi hdnyc2003, thank you for your post, when an output valve requires replacement, the valve’s matching LED will light permanently, please confirm if this is the case and replace the vacuum tube.
      When it comes to your second question a tube that is glowing blue is often wrongly perceived as a defect, however, it’s really just a side effect of a power tube, a fluorescent glow in the blue spectrum.
      The tube is fine, it actually indicates that the vacuum inside the tube is very good, which is what allows this phenomenon to occur.
      It will not have any effect on the performance or tone of the amp. For more details on this please check the pic below.

      Thank you
