    See if you can get sound from headphone out or insert send.

    I can't remember if send connects to ring or tip of the jack.

    In both case you can use an insert cable.

    If it's tip you can use a standard TS jack.

    If it's ring you have to wire a special cable.

    Connect to mixer or audio interface.

    We fixed another guitar amp awhile back.
    Sometimes it is as simple as dirty contacts.
    Insert a plug into every jack a number of times to try to work the contacts.
    Also disconnect the footswitch.

    Put your ear right up to the speaker. When you turn the power on and off, is there any sound, click or thump coming from the speaker?
