Question about Washburn Amplifiers: 25 WATT Guitar Amplifier - Bad Dog - BD25R Car Audio Amplifier

Guitar Amp trouble...... Gets power but either no sound or very little.

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.

The active light does not light up when I plug my guitar in and no sound comes out from the talkbox ... But the guitar sound can run through it to an amp where the guitar sound comes out


It sounds like you have NOT connected the power adapter to the box to power it. The guitar sound won't be too loud as you run the hose to your mouth and pick up the sound with a microphone such as a Shure SM57 which then goes to your amplifier. Without the power adapter the internal amplifier will not produce any output.

Hiwhat is the best way to connect my DigiTech RP10 to my Marshall MA100H Guitar Amplifier


Read your manuals for both pieces of gear carefully first. You only have one amp so you won't be able to take advantage of all the FX on the Digitech as a lot of them are designed for stereo. The Digitech manual shows guitar into the Digitech and output from the Digitech into input of any guitar amp. Since you have a Marshall and can already get some great sounds by running your guitar straight into the Marshalls input, you would probably be better off using your Digitech in the FX loop. Run a guitar cord out of the send on the loop into the input of the Digitech and a guitar cord out of the left / mono output jack on the Digitech into the effects return jack on the Marshall. Start out with the effects level on the Marshall all the way down. Do the same with the Digitech with both the input and output levels. (Read the manual carefully) I think the choice of the Digitech isn't that great because it is already trying to reproduce a lot of what you can already get with just your Marshall but with a little experimentation and some careful adjustments you should be able to add to the sound of the Marshall. Hope this helps.

My CD/MP3 in jack is pushed inside the cover plate


Open the amp and INSPECT the jack. It may require replacing OR simply need to have the pins re-soldered.

These jacks used on guitar amps for the most part are JUNK and easily damaged.

Hint: Loop guitar cables through the handles before plugging in or use a right angle adapter to avoid accidents that bend the plug sideways and BREAK the internal jack in the amp.

Try a different guitar and cord. If still problem, give the amp a bump without guitar plugged in. If amp makes noise, there is an intermittent internal connection,

Guitar amp shows power but has no sound, could it be a blown fuse


Nine times out of ten, any problem with an amp having no sound coming out, it's a wiring issue. Make sure all of the wires internal to the amp are propely hooked up. Also, try switching out the quarter inch cord you are using from your guitar to your amp. Could be a bad cable. Unless you have blown the speaker completely, something is loose or not hooked up properly.

First check your guitar to amp cord.
The pickup, audio jack, or pickup selection switch may be defective.
