Not sure yet, but before considering a fault with the amp, does it only make this humming noise when not plugged into the guitar? I am thinking that the cable might be faulty.

If it while the cable is plugged in the guitar, does the humming disappear when you turn the volume control(s) down on the guitar? I am thinking that one or pickups may be faulty.

After 2 days of use i am getting no pick up off my guitar...the amp lights up but all I am getting is a humming noise.


If it's humming when something is plugged into the input, but not when nothing is plugged in, it's most likely the cable. If it hums when nothing is plugged in, the amp is defective and you need to return/exchange it.

Is it plugged into a guitar at the time? If so, it sounds like you're using a speaker cable instead of an instrument cable. There is a big difference. Look on the cable to make sure. If guitar is not plugged in would be a completely different diagnosis.

Frender frontman212r has a huming noise when pluged into guitar.


If the humming ONLY happens when a cable is plugged into the amp, the problem is in the cable or the guitar. Poor quality cables or wrong cables will result in hum. Defective wiring or connectors in the guitar OR having the guitar near a source of magnetic fields will result in hum. We cannot diagnose these possibilities remotely.

Imput plug not picking up guitar and making fuzz noise


Inspect the jack for damage... including solder where it attaches to the circuit board. Common problem when someone trips over a guitar cable. Loop the cable through the handle of the amp to REDUCE the chance of this failure.

Pro Junior III Guitar Amplifier - Hello,When I turn it on there is loud buzzing noise that does not change with volume.Thanks


There is likely one of three problems:

Blown rectifier in power supply.

Bad filter capacitor(s) in power supply.

Shorted power amp chip causing the riple on the power supply to reach the speaker.

Deville 212 overdrive channel making Loud humming noise


It sounds like a filter capacitor(s) has failed. The electrolytic caps dry out and cease to perform allowing unfiltered power to reach the preamp sections and get amplified.

Being this is tube with high voltages, an experienced person should work on it due to shock danger.

I assume you checked the tubes for shorts as well as emission since a heater to cathode short could cause this as well.

I have just purchased a Yamaha EG012 and a Yamaha GA-15 Amplifier. I've followed the instructions adn plugged everything in, but when i turn on the amp and adjust the volumes there is just a buzzing noise...


You may have a switch with 2 settings somewhere on your amp - one for active and one for passive. try changing that.

If this doesn't work, make sure you got the guitar in the line input, change the lead for another incase it's faulty, turn the volume up on the guitar to activate the pickups, and rock-out when you find the problem and fix it.
