Question about Marshall Mg15dfx 15-Watt Combo Guitar Amplifier

Open Question

Marshall MG 15DFX: No volume on the clean channel.

My Marshall MG15dfx has no volume on the clean channel. The overdrive channel and the other controls work fine. I was getting a small amount of volume on the clean channel with the amp turned up full, but had to turn the guitar volume up to full to get anything. Any ideas?

SOURCE: marshall vs232 makes a high pitched hum always

I saw this symptom last week on a similar amp. It was due to the reverb tank having come lose and being stuck magnetically to the back of the speaker causing wild feedback as you describe. Worth a look before getting out the soldering iron.

Some of the Marshall equipment uses computer size fans and even on occasion the same connection.

Take the bad fan with you to a computer repair shop it will be much cheaper than a marshall part they should be able to help you out

SOURCE: Buzzing fan on a Marshall mg 100 head

Try to remove the fan and look for the sticker on the back side where the wires come out.

Remove the sticker, underneath it there will be a small aluminium cap (sometimes there is no cap and the axis is readily visible when you remove the sticker).

Take the cap off with a sharp tool (it shouldn't require a lot of force to do it), now you should be able to see the fan axis being held in place by a small clamp - put a drop or two of machine oil in there, move the fan blades a little to make the oil flow past the axis into the bearing.

Reinstall the cap, put the sticker back in place, reinstall the fan and test it.

Sometimes this will make things better, but if it doesn't then it is only fair to replace the fan.

SOURCE: problem of marshall g80rcd, volume drop when i play

It sounds like your volume control is dirty. You will have to disassemble the amp enough to get access to the volume potentiometer which is soldered to the circuit board. There will be a square hole in it that you can spray some contact cleaner into the control. Use only contact cleaner as anything else could damage the control. Use a small squirt and rotate the shaft. If this doesn't solve the problem you may have to replace the control. While you have it apart, examine the solder side to make sure all the solder joints are perfect especially those on the controls. A bad solder joint can also cause the same problem. Before you take the amp apart unplug the power with the amp on and the volumes turned down. This will discharge the capacitors so it will be safe to work on. I hope this helps.

Either the control is damaged (happens if they get hit) or it is possible the circuit board it is mounted on has broken solder OR worse, a crack near the control. The unit will require servicing. Parts are readily available.

Marshall MG100HDFX footswitch toggling - bypassing?


I once used uART & some latches to decode & hold the difference between "odd & even" midi program changes. Then used the output to switch a relay in a twin necked guitar to change between necks as it were in response to a midi pedal. Perhaps you could do something similar? Else get a Studiomaster MA-36 midi analyser & hack into it to use one piece of midi data (from across an LED?) to switch channels on your amp? Good Luck!

Please, take it to a tech in your area, or look for a good one to ship it to. An 2007 amp is not old at all.

Well without testing a bunch of parts. I would say some component in the clean preamp has changed. It may have happened over time and now you are noticeing it. without checking all the parts it would be hard to tell. Get it to a service center. Or you may send it in to Pro Line Music

I've had my marshall mg 50dfx for 3 months and it doesn't sound right to me because the overdrive is just barely different to the clean channel and doesn't have as sharp as sound as other mg50dfx models


Play around with your placement and where you are compared to the amp. I have a line 6 spider jam and I was getting pissed everytime I went into guitar center b/c theirs had more bass than mine. Then I realized that I put the amp beside me when I play but I play infront and over it when I go there. Have you ever noticed how much gain you lose when you take it outside compared to in your room. I would just look up the owners manual and see if you are missing anything. Check the fuse in the back too. If you clean isnt "that" clean and your overdrive is sucking then maybe the fuse is on its way out. Only $1 problem though. good luck

Feedback noise when overdrive is on


it could be your guitar pickups. try using another guitar or getting your pickups waxed at your local music store. also if your playing in a small room kind of loud, or if your using single coil pickups (like fender statocaster pickups) you will definitely get a feedback noise. if that does not work let me know.
