The most common cause of failure in these amps are solder breaks around the power supply capacitors and / or any of the front mounted potientiometers. If you can solder and can safely work around high voltage, get the amp chassis out of the cabinet, get some strong reading glasses or magnifying glass and start looking for cracks. Flow solder across the breaks or wire jumpers.

I bought my fender frontman 15 about 5 months ago, and yesterday i was playing it and it just stoped to work. Now the amp wont turn on... what can i do?

On the back of the amp, where the power cord plugs in, there is a cover that holds a 500 milliamp fuse. Check that.

In dec. of last year i bought a 19 lcd hdtv and now something happend to it it doesnt want to turn on it just makes a little noise. do i take it back to walmart and return it?

It depends on if you bought an extended warranty at Walmart or not. If you did, see the extended warranty information for the appropriate contact information. Otherwise you will need to contact the manufacturer (I hope your TV had a 1 year warranty).

I hope this helps.

Looking for the specs on the fisher ca-862 watts per channel frequency response i picked up an entire system for 30 bucks cd casset remote everything just wanna know what i have and if it was worth...

I own one, the back of the amp says 550 Watts. I doubt it's pushing that much, but the amp is very clean sounding, which would tell the tale of signal to noise ratio. It's a very nice amp for the day, much better than what most people think. It's built very well, and although it's design to work with the CA model series, it can in fact be used in many ways with other gear. I actually use mine for studio work, and it's marvelous!

I have a Holden Wasp XL base amp. 100 watt?? Quite old, 70's ish. CAn you tell me how many and what size speakers it will run. Thanks, Lance

hell yer, built in New Zealand... or Aussie, cant remember. Best sort of speaker box for bass is 4 x 10inch quad box. Next. a single 15 inch, or use both together. The head you have I think was more of a PA system than a bass amp, but will certainly do the job. So long as you are not trying to keep up with a Fender twin, or a Marshall stack. 100 watts don't go far for bass. I would go for the single 15 inch driver to more the most air.

Have a Fender Twin 57 custom shop reissue, 18 months old, keeps blowing the mains fuse after approx 30/40 into a gig. Amp not overdriven, no external FX used

Hi debdenplace

Blowing fuses at gigs is not a very nice habit. I suspect that you need to retube the output stage. It is the most common cause of fuse blowing. Even though not being overdriven, the life you get out of output tubes relates to volume and time. The higher the levels, the more often they may need to be replaced. Go for the Groove Tube replacements if you can afford them GT6L6GE , but I use a gain matched pair of Sovtek Russian made Electro Harmonix ELH6L6EH in this type of amp. They cost about half as much, are designed with Fender style output stages in mind and do a great job.

Hello, My name is kenny tompkins. i have a problem with my fender bassman amp that no tech in my area can figure out. i was hoping to run this by you and see if you've ever encountered this problem before....

I can't confirm this without testing the amp directly, but I would suspect bad capacitors in the pre-amp section. Some of them may have dried out a bit over time. Anyone that is familiar with guitar amps should be able to resolve this for you. The other thing to check is the 12AX7A tubes inside. Swap them around and see if the symptom changes. You may also have a bad tube.

Keep us posted.

Hi, Question,how's anyone worked with fender

Hi .... hehehe ...probably more a Marshall man(its a tone thing)... but Fender still rocks, and I have fixed and modded heaps of them ;)
There are many different versions of the same designation valve about these days, some providing better gain than others. The suffix on the valve type designates the particular performance of the valve. BEWARE OF CHEAP CHINESE VALVES. They are mostly crap. Go for brands like Sovtek, Electro Harmonix, Svetlana for good quality valves at an affordable price.

What model Fender, and what valves have been fitted to it? Get back to me here and I will check to see they are up to it..
