Exactly. R13 is how the 13th resistor would be labeled if there is one. I was being an asshole; trying to make the point that there is no way for us to know. It could be:

  • Bad tubes
  • Bad transformer(s)
  • Bad power supply
  • Bad fuse
  • Bad capasitor
  • Bad resistor
  • Bad diode
  • Shorted wire
  • Broken board
  • etc
  • etc
  • etc

Start with obvious, fuses, and move from there. Test each individual component and when you find the problem, fix it. That is what a tech would do, it is tedious and requires knowledge I only have a little of.

Sorry, a forum just isn't going to be helpful for this type of problem.
