Sounds like you might have a problem in the output stage and that it hasn't completely blown out just yet. I'd expect it to get worse soon, like not working at all or maybe smoke coming out or both. You might consider seeing a repair tech. soon. Good luck.

Sound not playing


Best you purchase a new power amp circuit board and replace that in your Fender if you want to keep the device as is. The problem is, Fender charges a whole lot for parts and you are not going to get the board from any other sources.

Fender hot rod deville 212 111. On the 2nd and 3rd distortion chanels the noise coming out of the speaker is very loud. Is this normal? Hard to play through the noise.


Hi. If the volume and drive levels are considerably low but you still hear a noise, you may want to consider trying a different guitar cable. The noise may be coming from a ground loop which is being amplified and overdriven by the amp itseld. I hope this helps. :-)

The reverb channel on my fender twin feeds back


Not sure of how it is feeding back. Two possibilities... the reverb tank in the cabinet is no longer shock mounted. The other is your guitar can "hear" the speaker... make sure you are away from the amp. With the reverb on, the feedback stability is less than with it off so make sure your guitar is away from the amp. Acoustic guitars are more sensitive to this than solid body ones.

My Fender 212R 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amplifier keeps on cutting out. The guy I took it to says there is something wrong with the cylinders? I also could have heard that wrong. I honestly don't know much...


You had best get a second opinion! When somebody says "there is something wrong" means they don't really know the details enough to give you an estimate even. If the amp cuts out sharply I would suspect that: 1. Bad volume control 2. Cracked circuit board 3. Bad solder joint on circuit board 4. Bad jack. These are in order from least to most likely.

You may have a switch that may be bad. For the sound level high and low may need new tubes or possibly may not be seated fully into position. These tubes due get quite hot and do get loose over a period of time.Hope this helps.

First check for marginal input jack. These take a beating and get loose and poor contacts. The vibration can cause the contact to be lost.

Try to catch it in the act and tweek things to find someting that is affected.

Another common problem is contacts on jacks meant for effects inserting. These pass the signal through switch contacts when nothing plugged in and those contacts are "junky" to say the least.

There is a protection thermistor in the circuit to keep it from over-heating, this is why it works again when it cools. Check and make sure you are not covering any ventilation holes, or if the unit has a fan, make sure it is working.

Fender 100w twin amp no sound


Here is a test you can do at home for the sound. Test out the speaker. To do this you will need two alligator clips with wire about ft. long. Remove the speaker wire clips under the speaker magnet and attach the alligator clips . Take a C size battery and touch both ends of the battery. You should here a scratching sound . If you do you know your speaker is OK. Then you have a problem that needs a Technician. A good music shop should be able to give you a idea of the repair cost. Don't go to a big music change, find a small full service shop that deals with Fender. I don't think this will cost a lot. Fenders play for years, Its truly worth the bench fee. Good luck DFD , please rate me thanks
