You might have a ground problem. Does it do it in different outlets or when you take it to someone else's house? One easy solution to ground problems can be running a three prong to two prong adapter on the power cable. Give that a try and see if it helps.

I have a peavey VIP2 amp.Can I use my acoustic/electric guitar in the electric guitar setting


You can not only play it on electric guitar setting, you can play it LOUD. Its all about what YOU do and what YOU like. Dont accept it when somebody tells you that the music you're playing doesnt sound good to them. ITS YOUR MUSIC !
Do whatever you want. And NO it wont hurt guitar or amp. Rock on or whatever it is you do.

You take it in for electronic repair. Unless you are electronically adept at troubleshooting and repair this is not DIY. Probably one side of the PA transistors has shorted. You can blow the speaker if you keep trying to use it this way.

I recently purchased a Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special HH as well as a Fender Super Sonic 22 amplifier. I noticed there is a lot of noise coming from the amp with the jag plugged in, especially on the...


"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.

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. :-)

When I plug in my guitar to the Fender Frontman 64R Amp and I just barely move the cord, it make this really loud screeching type noise. It's not an old amp; I got it about five months ago. I can't...


Yes, there are several possibilities. First thing is to disconnect your guitar and then plug in the cord to the amp. Expect a bit of hum. If it screeches, then problem is not feedback via the guitar. If it doesn't MAYBE your guitar is "hearing the amp" which the guitar is then a microphone and can feedback. Moving the cable generates electrical noise which can trigger the feedback to start.
If you get the screech without the guitar connected, then TRY a new guitar cable. Make sure it is an INSTRUMENT cable... I have seen some try to use speaker cables or junky 1/4 inch cables intended for home stereo... these will NOT work and can cause the feedback. The next possibility is a broken jack on the amp. This would require repair. The common cause of this is to fail to run the cord through the handle of the amp... one trip on the cord or step on it pulling the plug sideways in the amp and the jack is broken and it is a trip to the shop as well. While on the subject ALWAYS run the cord at the guitar end either through the strap or your belt loop. Cords left dangling keep rotating and soon wear out the plug and also the jack in the guitar and then that has to go to the shop.

When I turn on the amp, I get a loud hum. plugging into the jack doesn't change anything. turning the dials doesn't change anything. when I turn off the amp it makes a loud crack.


i) Disconnect one lead of loudspeaker & insert an open-ended guitar cable into headphone socket.

ii) Put a dc voltmeter across open end jack then turn Frontman ON for a few seconds.

iii) The reading should be about 0volts - if the voltage is high (27v), then it is likely that the PA chip TDA1514A has blown.

iv) If,however, the voltage is correct in iii) , then reconnect speaker & put guitar cable into the POWER AMP IN socket & connect other end to guitar...Turn on briefly, if there is still hum then fault is in the output stages & will require chassis removal to solve.

There is an increased humming when i turn on my amp


If most of the humming goes away when you unplug the cable from it, the amp is OK and it may be either a poor guitar cable or more likely hum pickup by the pickups on the guitar. If you move the guitar around and near the amp you likely will notice incread hum from the magnetic fields from the amp or other devices as well.

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.

I have a Fender Telecaster guitar and a Crate amp that cuts out i


The next time it stops, unplug the cable from the guitar and touch the tip of the connector with your finger. If the amp hums, then the amp is still working and the problem is in the guitar. If there is no hum from doing this, then the amp has am intermittent.

Try this before it fails to see what to expect in the way of the hum from this test.

Common problems with the amp are OFTEN with a broken input connector or bad switch on the preamp output jack if it has one.

There are MANY other things and without troubleshooting it is hard to steer you to a fix.
