Hi superleaddud

MOst probable, is that an output tube went west(decrease in vol), and in turn popped the fuse(pilotlight went out). It is always a decent first bet that this is what has happened. You get generally 6 months out of a set out output tubes if you use the amp often, and at gig levels every week. I would first check and replace the fuse, and then the output tubes. GT 6L6GE are factory for that amp, and always a fair bet to use the same to replace them. If you cant extend to the budget for the GT's, then Russian made (Sovtek) Electro Harmonix make a decent quality tube that sound good in guitar amps. . Always replace them as a pair, and buy them gain matched. Get the Grove Tubes from a music store, and the Electro Harmonix from an amp repair specialist. Happy to answer any question you may have about the problem. Cheers. A FixYa rating is a great reward for my assistance to you.

Plug the guitar on the "power amp in" jack near the "presence" knob.
If you get sound, you have a problem on the preamp. If not, it´s probably on the power amp section.

Its a good start...

How do you check the tubes in a guitar amp


A vacuum tube tester is used to test tubes. Years ago, you could walk into an electronics store like radio shack and test your tubes. I suggest you take the amp to good music shop that repairs amps. They will be able to test the tubes.

When I plug the guitar into an mixing board/amp no sound comes out. From the mixing board, I can see that the mixer is receiving a signal but still nothing comes through the speakers. I own a Fender...


If the mixer is receiving signal, then the problem is pilot error at the mixer, not the guitar. You did not mention what type of mixer you have so I have no way of helping. Common problems would be failure to send the guitar channel to the mixing buss, leaving the channel muted... but we really need the mixer and model number to give more help that that.

Hello! I've bought a Fender Rumble 75 about 3 months ago and it sounded great really but after some loud playing (About 75% of max volume) it started to buzz at midrange notes, and its gets worse as time...


Try plugging another sound source into the unit. The buzz MAY be pickup of magnetic fields in your guitar pickup that clobber your notes from the strings. Bad guitar cables are another possibility. By putting clean music from say a CD player into the unit you can find where the source is. If the CD player generates the same noises, then likely you have a failure of filter caps in the amp or other component failures. Also make sure your guitar can't "hear" the amp as feedback can do strange things.

How do I replace a fender 2 x 2 deville pilot light? CL


You unscrew the plastic dome over the bulb. The bukb is a bayonet base. Push in and turn... probably counterclockwise and extract the bulb. Replace by reversing the process.

Use T47 or #47 (6 volt) lamp... available at Radio SHack and other places.

I have a Peavey Valve King 112. When I plug in my guitar I get nothing.The power light is on and the preamp is on as well.There is just silince.No humming or crackling.


This could be anything. You could try swapping the preamp tubes. If it were a power amp tube problem, it is likely the mains fuse would have blown, Since the pilot lamp is still on, we will assume that the problem is at the preamp level. This absence of signal can be caused by a dead tube, or more complexly, by a faulty resistor or capacitor in the signal path. If you can't resolve the problem by swapping preamp tubes with a known good one, you should take the amp to a tech experienced in servicing tube guitar amps. Any good tech should be able to sort this out within an hour of labor time. I doubt it will require any expensive parts. It may even be as simple as a loose/bad connection, either from manufacturing, or from normal use. Pro tube amps are subjected to levels of heat, vibration and electrical stresses that consumer electronic gear never sees.

Williams debonair wall heater + pilot light problems


THE flame from the pilot should shoot past the thermo-couple and heat this up and make a small amount of mili- amps to prove the pilot light is lit. ..So if the flame doesn,t go past the thermo-couple it won, make mili-amps or its tme to change out the thermo-couple, They only cost lest than $8:00 and you can change it!
