You can get a circuit for your amp from here.

Not sure what you electronics ability is, but if I were repairing the amp, I would look to check that there is audio getting through the opamp stage 1C, then the function of the FET 2N3819 to provide the vibrato effect. It has an oscillator driving its gate, that too should be checked for operation. I know it is not a "do this to fix it" repair, but without being able to do these checks with an oscilloscope on the amp, nobody can say for sure what the problem is. If you have any questions, I am happy to talk to you about the amp. Good Luck with the repairs.

Yaesu VC-27

Hi Jon,

If this is the earpiece that came with the radio & it states that vox is available for the radio, then Yes would be the answer to your query.

But if you are trying to use a yaesu VC-27 vox earpiece with another Make of radio, say - Icom, then no would be the answer, as each manufacturer, programs each radio/earpiece with vox to work only with their radios.

I hope that clears up your query.

I have a delux 90 fender amp solid state and it has a loud hum in it and it will not let you play a guitar or any thing else, nothing will work no sound except the hum thats all, thanks

This could be any of several problems including a failure in the power supply filtering, a tube that has shorted, or a broken ground someplace. Take unit in for repair.

Celestion Neodog Speaker

the mesa is for guitar and is not more than 100 watts, the neo dog is 100 watts it will fit but will give a different character because can be push to another limit of saturation the vox doesnt give that much.

No sound from my front and back speakers in my van ive got subs

Make sure that when you hooked up your 4 channel amp to the remote turn on lead it is the same as the sub. Only hook amps to the Blue w/ white strip. The solid blue is power antenna lead and will lose power when on CD, ipod etc and only stays powered when the Tuner is on. Hope this fixes your problem.

JL 500/1 power problem.

There should be a small switch someware on the amp marked VOX or normal. I bet its on vox. if there is no switch then theres a jumper inside the unit to put it into a vox state. Vox Is when audio is at the input the amp goes on and when theres no voltage at the input the amp switches off.
