    Sounds like a relay but it may be browning out from bringing up the power slowly sustained low power isn't good for it.
    I'd vote the relay but I have no knowledge about the circumstances of the amp..Caps and cold cracked solder joints can cause loads of troubles...a good tech with good parts sources can get it up quickly into perfect form.

    I just tried plugging in directly without the variac and it did the same thing. I'll need to get it serviced to know for sure—
    Thanks—

    Must be 2245 Day here on AK. Here's one I picked up a week ago. It had a horrible paint job on the cabinet and half the lettering was worn off the faceplate. So, I got the cabinet powdercoated with a matte black finish and found a black faceplate from a fellow AK'r (thanks Bob!!). Still have LEDs and a new speaker relay to do, but here's where I am so far:

    That is one beautiful 2245, Dave! I'm curious about the powder coating. Did you peel off the vinyl covering, and if you did, was that very hard?

    Hi Steve. I asked them if they needed me to strip it before I brought it in but they said that they could sandblast off the speckle paint along with the original vinyl woodgrain covering underneath. They offered three different black finishes from glossy to matte. I took the semi-matte option and I love the look of it. I wanted something that would hide fingerprints and be durable. Plus I wanted something that would look better than something that I'd do with a spray can! Cost me $25.

    Beautiful! I was just reading an old thread where Brians12v and KutzlerTrans were helping someone with their 4140. And Richs_Trains has one on the bench. I've been trying to stay away from quad units for fear of getting a second addiction. But you guys are like a black hole sucking me in.:eek::eek::eek:

    No thanks. I can't keep myself out of the innards of these things. I'm afraid with tubes, sooner or later I would find myself on the floor. :angel::angel::angel:
