Question about Washburn Amplifiers: 25 WATT Guitar Amplifier - Bad Dog - BD25R Car Audio Amplifier

Guitar Problem I Think.

My amp doesnt output any sound when you plug the lead into both the guitar and amp. If you listen to the amp though, you can hear that it is working fine.
I know its not the amp or lead because i used a diffrent lead and amp to check if it was and still, no sound came through.
Can anyone tell me what is wrong with the guitar if you know?
Thanks

Rachael.

With the cable (lead) plugged into to the amp with the volume turned up, unplug the cable from the guitar end and hold the plug with your hand and touch the plug tip with your thumb. If it makes a pretty loud buzzing or humming sound this means the cable is good. Then at that point you need to get the electronics looked at for defects. If there is no hum than you can assume that the cable is defective and needs replacing.

It is the guitar. The most common problem with electric guitars is that the nut on the guitar output jack gets loose and the jack will turn in the mount, causing the wire to break. It will have to be re-soldered. Guitar Center usually has someone who can do that.

First check your guitar to amp cord.
The pickup, audio jack, or pickup selection switch may be defective.

Crate Guitar Amp G120 cxl not outputting sound ... What troubleshooting steps should i take before purchasing new module?


I had a Crate G120C XL COmbo amp that was only outputting very quietly. I checked all pots. They were operating as they should be. I checked the speakers outs, the footswitch and its connections and both guitar inputs ..all operational. Problem: turns out when you plug an effect into the effects loop, there is an internal switch that lets the rest of the circuitry know an effect is there and routs the correct internal signal to it. As soon as I plugged in a pedal, Voila!!!! Full volume was completely resorted, no problem at all. So at this point I can either limp along with a pedal in the loop that isn't even doing anything, or I can go inside and repair the switch OR bypass it (short it out) so the loop is no longer functional.
There are other situations that can cause the same symptoms, but this is what was happening in this particular case. Amp cost me $50, sold it for $225. Nice. Got me another one-- almost same low price.

As soon as i turn my amp on it starts getting extremelly hot and there is a hum comming from the speaker but no sound from plugged in instruments. I think a diode or resistor went bad. Can anybody help me....


yeah its cooking. there should be four diodes grouped together on the power supply 1n4003 or something like that. maybe the fatter electrolytics are going bad too. you can order parts from mouser.com the diodes are 6 cents each and the caps are under a buck each. if you cant find the extact match for the caps get the next voltage rating higher, dont go lower in voltage

I have an old what looks too be a student model guitar, and it doesnt have a name, And that is what i want too know, the serial number is FG3 835-1238


If you mean old as in 60's old then its likey that it's a Teisco. Teisco was a Japanese company that made student guitars under countless brand names. You can find them all over the place in all kinds of funky shapes, colors, etc...

Go on eBay and look up Teisco and see if you can find one similar to yours.

How to get the best sound


punk and metal tones (late 80s): treb-7 mid-6-7 bass 6-8, presence 6-10, gain/distortion all the way up. classic rock just turn down the gain/distortion to 6-7. bridge pickup

metal mid 90s & up: treb 6-7, mids 3-5, bass 7-9, gain all the way up, presence (which is a mid and treble boost) 4-6. bridge pickup

blues SRV: treb 6, mid 6, bass 7.5, presence 8, gain 5, reverb (if you got it). use your neck pick up

of course this is subjective and depends on the guitar, cable quality, etc. it looks like a small speaker with a low watt output. that little speaker in there is going to be hard to articulate any tones. more than likely it will have a harsh bit to it cause the value of the pots and the logarythm you hear. reduce treble as needed to smooth out the harsh, keep the mids up.

Intermittent shorts in a Crate Limo TX50DE Guitar


turn that ****** on and get a can of freeze spray. coming and going type issues is usually related to a failing electrolytic capacitor. there may also be a bad mosfet, rectifier, diode, etc. i would be suspect to caps. schematics probably only available thru crate and you have to pay a couple bucks, but trust me its worth the couple bucks spent and having it on its way than wasting hours online not getting anywhere. by the way i checked my sources and came up with nada.

I have not played my electric guitar for months now there is no sound coming through the amp, the amp works ok


probably have active pickups on the guitar.
if there's a plate on the back, get a small phillips screwdriver, take the plate off, and put a new 9 volt battery in.

Problem with pickup on guitar washburn d46


Hello woizo,

The windings of the pickup might be bad. Basically these are magnetic pickups that take the string vibrations and by using transducers converts the vibrations into electrical energy and the by using preamplifier's and finally a main amplifier it takes the electrical energy and then turns it into sound. It sounds like in your case the pickups need to be repaired or replaced.

Now I would check the amplifier first and the run a test on the output of the guitar to make sure the potentiometers (volume, tone, etc) are ok. If these are ok then I would really suspect the pickups.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Guitar Amp trouble...... Gets power but either no sound or very little.


Your problem sounds very similar to mine. I have a Marshal that does the same thing. It gets power but either no sound comes out or it's fragmented and buzzing. I took the circuit board out and found that a fuse had pulled/been knocked loose and was hanging free. If you take your amp apart, make sure you unplug it first. You're going to be be looking for something that look likes a small lego that suspended above the circuit board by wires coming out of both ends. If ones of these wires has pulled free then that's your problem. You can temporarily fix it by pressing the wire back into the circuit board and placing electrical tape over the top of the fuse to hold it all in place. If you do this, however, you can't play loud or it will rattle loose again and you don't really get more than about 10 minutes of play time. I'm about to solder mine whenever the guns arrives, so I'll let you know if this is a DIY project or not.
