Start with a clean setting - zero cut and zero gain on the Eq. Play a song close to the amp, and then move away, playing the same notes. Do you still get the distortion? Change lower the input gain and repeat the test. Lower the output gain and repeat. Are any outboard distortion pedals in the mix, such as overdrive? Eliminate them. Run straight through from your axe to the amp. Check for any distortion settings. Set everything including reverb to zero. When the distortion disappears, this is your base setting.
Change only ONE parameter at a time. When the distortion comes back, you have found your problem.+

SOURCE: i have not played my electric guitar for months now there is no sound coming through the amp, the amp works ok

probably have active pickups on the guitar.
if there's a plate on the back, get a small phillips screwdriver, take the plate off, and put a new 9 volt battery in.

SOURCE: 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.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, a Bass guitar would require a hefty amp quite different in terms of construction design to most guitar amps.

Offhand, the problem would be internal on the electronics board. Most likely culprit if it will power on but no sound would be the final/output transistors.

If there is no power indicator at all, then it would most likely be the power supply section.

Any competent electronics tech should be able to perform the repairs since the parts (to my knowledge) are readily available from most electronics parts stores including Radio Shack and **** Smith.


Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Hi, My Aria AS-690B Sinsonido has started making a strange crackling / low grumbling noise when plugged in. It still plays well, but the noise gets very much in the way. It sounds electronic. Any ideas...


First thing is to check that batteries are good. Next, verify your guitar cable is a good one... some are microphonic and the cable can actually insert noise into the signal. The plugs on cables can sometimes be noisy as they move while playing. Try to keep the guitar from "hearing" the amp as it can create feedback. Verify the amp itself isn't the source of the noise. Try a different guitar. The input of the amp is grounded by a contact when cable is removed, If there is a problem right in the input stage it can be masked. Plug only the guitar cable into the amp... Is ti quiet? If so make sure to try the first few suggestions. ALso be aware of other noise producers like fluorescent lights an dimmers... these generate electrical noise that sensitive guitars can pick up.

When I recieved my BC Rich Virgo celtic bass there was no problem. I played with it for almost an hour. Later I wanted to play another time so plugged it in. No sound came from my bass. I tried to replace...


Intermittent problems can lead one on a merry chase. The first suspect would be the guitar cable.

Players learn to check the connection to the amp is good by touching the tip of the cable and observe you get hum.

It is UNLIKELY to get two bad guitars so we need to check everything else. Cable is next suspect.

Check the cable IS for intruments and NOT speakers. Check that the tips do not spin. Some cables become worn and the sleeves no longer actuate the switch that turns the battery in the guitar on or the tip fails to make contact. Do not use cables that are intended to connect stereo systems. Use ONLY instrument rated cables.

This sounds like either a bad guitar cable or a bad jack in the guitar. Possibly your friend is not as qualified to find these intermittent problems as needed? These jacks are really junky and often have riveting of the barrel come undone... especially if the retaining nut is overtightened. The LONG barrel like jacks are notorious for failing. You have all the information you need to solve this problem. First try a different guitar cable... (often they are broken or intermittent at the end where they flex). If that doesn't fix it, replace the jack in the guitar. Also verify that the conductive coating paint within the guitar is grounded. Sometimes the contact to it is destroyed when the volume control shafts or jacks become loose and they depend upon the shaft barrel to ground the paint.

Bass Guitar Keeps sound keeps cutting in and out.


There is an inconsistency in your text. You indicate that cables were swapped and problem still existed...
You said:... "i have tried using it on a different amp and still fine".

If you tried it on a different amp and it was still fine then the guitar is probably OK.

THEN your amplifier is in question as the root of your problem.

What is the amp you have? The guitar is the CB-42, but what amp do you have?

MANY intermittent problems with amplifiers are often with the input jack itself. These jacks are easily broken by tripping over a cable plugged into them.
