Fender p10w wireless system - batteries will not charge

Suddenly I can't get the batteries to charge even after several hours. I know one battery is good as it has been working lately. The unit flashes green like it is charging but never goes solid and when I do stop and turn the unit on it comes on with a red light that fades in a few seconds and then nothing. There is a black wire in the battery compartment that is lose and I wonder if that is part of the problem or is it just an extra wire? Thanks

go back in and find where the electrolitic capacitors connect to the board. They look kind of like a battery. One or both of them have broken loose from the main board, preventing any significant current from going to the output transformer, and causing overload. This is a common problem, and it does not take much rough handling to cause it.
where the break is is at the solder connection. Under a magnifying glass, the break will look like a little circle. Float fresh solder on that or any other large solder joints which may be cracked or broken.
Use standard precautions when working around high voltage.

SOURCE: sounds like only one amp is working. Then after a few minutes the red light goes on and the unit shuts down.

90 % of these types of problems are caused by faulty leads .... make sure that you have correct speaker cables and not just a regular guitar cable

SOURCE: The 'protect light' comes on Fender PD150 Portable Sound System

The protect circuit is activated by a current sensing transformer in the *input* of the power supply. If any of the subassemblies of the unit (or all of them in combination) draw excess current then the protect light will illuminate and the power supply shut down to prevent any damage to the system.

The circuitry in the power supply is fairly robust as well as fuse protected so it is unlikely that the power supply itself has failed. More than likely one of your output power transistors has been shorted and it is easy to check this yourself if you are interested in doing so.

Furthermore if you follow a few *simple* precautions you can do this safely and confidently.

Post again on this thread if you are interested and I will spew the details.

Likely there is either a failure in one of the power amps or the power supply. The protect means excess current is being sensed.

You need to take in for repair... these are really hard to work on due to the packaging.

"Noise" is not a very good deescription... is it hum? is it static like? is it a buzz? Hum pickup by the pickups of guitars are common and some pickups are worse. If it is hum move the guitar away from magnetic sources like amps, motors, flourescent lights, dimmers... etc. Sme guitars have grounding problems and touching them varies hum. Also, do NOT let the guitar "hear" the amp as it can feedback at frequencies above your hearing even. Do some "sniffing" by moving the guitar and the orientation around the area seeing if you can find hot spots of noise to avoid.

This has the earmarks of battery problem... Supposedly this uses a 9 volt battery... You CANNOT use rechargeable batteries in these as the actual voltage of the rechargeable is lower than alkaline and they will fail quickly and as they age you may get only seconds of operation. When they go off the battery will recover a bit and even look like it comes on again. Do NOT count on the battery LED to give actual answer. When you turn on the unit, read the battery voltage under load with a meter. It should be at least 8.5 volts. NEXT possibility: A chronic problem with body packs is the battery contacts. There is a fine line between having good contact and being able to get batteries out. I have seen where people stuff paper in to increase tension on the contacts.

With the wireless mike and the 1/4-inch mike jack and the line-in from a CD-player, how can the volumes be separately adjusted?


Adjust the CD level at the CD player itself. Truly independent adjustment is probably not possible on this small system.

Fender Concert II preamp is faint and distorted on 2 channel


It sounds like a job for a technician. There are high voltages in the chasis and the potential for a serious shock to the unwary. 

That said, I can suggest several possibilities.

First, make sure the controls aren't causing the problem. Contacts can build up dirt and oxides and block the signal. Try twiddling the controls and see if the problem comes and goes, or if you hear scratchy noises. If symptoms are found, buy a contact cleaner spray, take out the chasis after unplugging and letting it set for an hour, being very careful not to touch any exposed conductors inside. You'll see some holes in the control bodies; squirt cleaner for 2-5 seconds and work the controls.
Also see if the problem happens without the footswitch, and try the channel switches several times - same problem, dirt and oxidation.

Other possibilities - cathode bypass capacitors drying up, and it looks like the amp uses some opto-couplers at various stages.

Replacing the low-mid pot on a Fender Rumble 100/210 bass amp


Hello,
To answer your question: YES and NO this is an easy fix.
Yes if you have the tools and knowhow, and NO if you don't know what you are doing.

There are high voltages in an amplifier that can persist even when the power is off (I have a Laney amplifier that will remain at several hundred volts for days after the power is off). There could be enough voltage stored in the capacitors to give a fatal shock.

At a minimum, you need a voltmeter, soldering iron, some 64/40 rosin-core solder, the replacement part.
Such a fix is pretty cheap for a repair shop. This is about as easy a fix a repairman can have, but thats because they know how to get in and do it without getting hurt.
I work on amplifiers and build them, and always take each time I reach into an amplifier that has had upto several hundred volts seriously. I know that I would charge no more than 1/2-3/4 hour shop time for such a fix plus parts (or about 30-ish bucks). I would think a local shop can do this for you at no more than 30-45 dollars per hour shop rate. Any competant repairperson should only take 15 minutes or so after the amp is out of the case: more time is spent getting it in and out and being safe about it with this type of repair.

Hop that helps!
