Question about Washburn Amplifiers: 25 WATT Guitar Amplifier - Bad Dog - BD25R Car Audio Amplifier
Hey, hope you can help me. I have a Torque guitar amplifier and the thing is just playing up and I can't afford to have it repaired so need to tackle the thing myself. It turns on as normal but just wont put out any sound. At best I get broken sound of such poor quality that it sounds more like a weak buzzing noise but that just comes at totally random intervals and then that sound will disappear. I have tried different leads so its not a lead problem and I dont think it is the actual speaker itself either as I have tried just plugging headphones into the amp only to get the exact same results. So..... Gets power but wont produce any sound apart from random spurts of sound so bad in quality it sounds like a cheap kiddies keyboard that is running low on batteries (literally). Same result with or without headphones. What can I do? Thanks, Lee Usher
Your problem sounds very similar to mine. I have a Marshal that does the same thing. It gets power but either no sound comes out or it's fragmented and buzzing. I took the circuit board out and found that a fuse had pulled/been knocked loose and was hanging free. If you take your amp apart, make sure you unplug it first. You're going to be be looking for something that look likes a small lego that suspended above the circuit board by wires coming out of both ends. If ones of these wires has pulled free then that's your problem. You can temporarily fix it by pressing the wire back into the circuit board and placing electrical tape over the top of the fuse to hold it all in place. If you do this, however, you can't play loud or it will rattle loose again and you don't really get more than about 10 minutes of play time. I'm about to solder mine whenever the guns arrives, so I'll let you know if this is a DIY project or not.
