Question about Audio Players & Recorders
SOURCE: Peavey Bass Amp TKO115s
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.+

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.

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.
