Marshall Park series won't make any sound!

I bought an 80 watt Marshall Park series combo amp second hand a couple of years ago. When I turned it on the lights came on, but it wouldn't actually produce any sound through the speaker. I found that if I kept it on for long enough eventually it would produce sound. This problem has been going on a while, but I have another amp that I use for gigs, so it didn't bother me that I had to wait for it to work. However, I do like to practice at home and very recently it doesn't turn on even if you leave it for hours!

I was wondering whether anyone knew why this might have happened or have any recommendations for how to solve it!

Many Thanks

SOURCE: hooking up a turn table

You should get a turntable adapter. They adjust the impedance so they can be plugged into a typical auxiliary input. Or you get a DJ mixer; most can do the same thing. I have an old Realistic Stereo mixer that does the job, and it has two phono inputs, as well as a Tape input. Very handy for this purpose. Go to Radio Shack if your budget is tight, but a pro DJ mixer would probably be the best solution for an audiophile.

I just bought the Vintage Club 60 and am loving it. $300..Pretty good deal huh! Plenty of bass...Have you tried the low boost and mid boost switches? they completely change the way the amp sounds. Also the stock speakers are **** so I'm dopping some Celestion Vintage 30s. Also is anyone getting some tube jingle with the VC60? I'll probably have to take it to someone...

SOURCE: Accurian 6.1 Receiver flashing PROTECTOR

I been reading a lot, dont have much experience but this is what I have seen.... if your speakers are 4 ohm then your impedance on these speaker will be too low and should cause the receiver to overheat, this is a natural occurance as the extra power has to go somewhere, in this case the form of heat, this particular receiver is meant for 6 ohm speakers, so i would recoommend either 6 or 8 ohm speaker systems (too high is okay, just not as loud), was it getting really hot before it couldnt turn on anymore? I mean burning hot... if it really got that hot it's possible that some loose solder points may have disconnected, if you fried your board... good luck... cant help ya there... maybe take it to a radioshack?

SOURCE: Denon AVR-2307 Protection Circuit Activated permenantly

The speakers are 4 ohm speakers, a guy on another chat site sent me a link to the impedance curves

He agreed to that there was a mismatch as the unit has plenty of fresh air around it, plus all the speaker cables have been tested and installed correctly.

So, off to the store where I got it from tomorrow.

Possible that the output tubes that were replaced are drawing too much current, hence the popping sound (may be "motorboating", one common word to describe a similar sound)

This means the tubes need to be biased properly. You need to get it to someone who knows what they are doing, ie a good amp tech, not GC. The voltages here are dangerous.

Hi,I turned on my Marshall mg series 100 dfx and there is no sound,just static comes on.Its starts with a kinda bad feedback sound than turns to loud static.

I suspect the power supply for the effects processor has failed. The effects unit will "go crazy" when power supply is too low voltage.

If the amp has loud noise, then the power amp portion is PROBABLY OK.

I had a similar problem in a Behringer amp caused by a bad electrolytic filter cap.

Marshall MG100 DFX manual

If you just bought it new, Marshall will replace any parts, or the store you got it from. If its second-hand I would have a look on ebay for parts.
The user guide can be found here...

Good luck, its a sweet little amp!!!

Hi a couple of years back I had a similar problem. Remove the chassis, you will see a wire (might be blue) it is quite noticeable (looks like a jumper a few inches long). It controls channel switching. Check it for dry solder or broken at either end. Good luck, Dereeldeel
