Peavey classic 30, new tubes and PT with absolutely no sound

I have a 12 year old peavey classic 30.PT has been replaced as the old one burnt out and tubes replaced but it makes absolutely no sound. tubes all heat up as they should. but i am not really sure where to start finding out what the problem is.

thanks

    Hi, sorry, i mean power transformer. I have been building tube amps for a year or so but so far i have just built a champ and a 5e3 tweed type amp both of which are simple. this is more complicated for me and on a pcb too but i no about the voltages. It is just a hobby but i would like to try fixing it.. thanks

I'm not sure what "PT" is , but the heater voltage is separate from the other voltages required for this unit to function properly. Please note that with tube systems, there are voltages in the 300-400V range that can cause injury. If you do not have experience with tube based electronics, I would suggest that you bring this to a service center for repair.

Please update this with what you mean by "PT" and we'll continue from there.

Thanks,
Dan

    OK. Since you are familiar with tube systems, look for the high voltage. If not present, the result would be no sound. Check also for any of the resistors that may be open. You should have some in the 470K range and even in the 1-2Meg range. Any of these could be open and preventing proper plate voltages.



    Keep me posted.

No sound coming out of speakers when turned on


If you get absolutely no sound, not even a pop when changing the standby switch, this probably means the rectifier OR the switch has failed. The red light just means power is getting to the power transformer... probably fuse is OK.

Hi, Peavey Classic Guitar amp , Has NO SOUND


Hi Mike,

If you switch on the amplifier, do you hear nothing at all?
Or do you hear low level noise or hum out of the speaker?
Don't know if you're technician.
If the tubes are glowing, you can measure the high voltage.
Check also fuse 3 and 4, thats the neg. voltage -27V and -14V.


regards,
Gerard

A HUMMING Peavey Classic 30


I repaired a classic 50 recently and the problem was a bad solder connection on the main input jack. You may also want to have the tubes tested.

If the unit is over 20+ years have it recapped.

I do this stuff but Vermont might be to far.

Panasonic PT-53WX42 - When I turn the TV on, the red light comes on but, no sound or picture.


Does the light blink? If it is blinking a 3 code, the IC's need to be replaced. Those three lamps as you called them are not lamps, they are the three picture tubes.

No sound - peavey bravo 112


I'm assuming that no sound applies to both the clean and ultra modes. You didn't say which tubes you replaced but I'm guessing the input tube was not replaced. Did you keep the old tubes? When "no sound comes out", do you hear any kind of a low level hum on the speaker output? I think the front end tube is open or the switch logic switch is defective. Hope this helps.
