Electric Guitar wont play through Amp

I've just purchased a Yamaha EG 012 Guitar and a Yamaha GA-15 Amp as a kit. I've followed all the instructions and plugged everything in, adjusted the volumes etc and it wont play through the Amp. When you turn the Amp on, it just buzzes

Have the same make guitar and amp, im sometimes confused too and often have the same, but its always my mistake, depending on clean or drive setting you have to use other volume control, make sure you return all pots to 0 before connecting/disconnecting/power on or off.. connect everything while off, turn on amp power switch, use clean setting, open clean to say halfway, put the 3 bands 2/3 open or so, then slowly adjust guitar volume dial from 0 to 10 and strike, sometimes I dont hear anything and then I lower guitar dial to 0, then change the 5 stand setting on guitar, then raise volume again, and it works, then if I change back to the nonfunc setting on the discrete switch, it works now, so I think theres something digital going on in guitar....

The buzzing is indicative of an open ground connection, check the cord by substitution or with an ohm meter, if the cord is good look at the connections to the jack inside the amp ( im guessing you built the amp from a kit). Is this a solid state amplifier? Tube amps have lethal votages and should not be experimented on without knowledge of electronic safety. Also if there is more than one input to the amp try plugging the guitar into another one and see if its still the same.

I have a peavey VIP2 amp.Can I use my acoustic/electric guitar in the electric guitar setting


You can not only play it on electric guitar setting, you can play it LOUD. Its all about what YOU do and what YOU like. Dont accept it when somebody tells you that the music you're playing doesnt sound good to them. ITS YOUR MUSIC !
Do whatever you want. And NO it wont hurt guitar or amp. Rock on or whatever it is you do.

My rumble 30 bass amp makes a lot of bad noise when i plug it in. it started off when i first started playing it and it worked fine, then after a few minutes it started making the noise. i've tried...


How new is the amp?

A single faulty solder can do that...I'd try returning in to the seller.
Have you tried a different amp with the same equipment?

Sounds like a wiring issue.

Hope I've helped

I have a Yamaha GE 112c2 guitar. One day I was playing, and the sound suddenly cut off. The guitar was plugged in, the amp was on, and the volume was on high. I can't find a wiring diagram, or anything...


Sounds like the amp (or speaker) blew. Do you have anything else you can plug into the amp to test? If possible use a different cord to preclude that as a cause, too.

I've plugged my SX RST guitar into the SX GA-1065 amp but I can't get sound to come from the amp. I've made sure everything is plugged in and adjusted, but it still won't work. Why can't I get it to play?


Test the amp cable by plugging in the guitar cable an touching the end of the cord and you should get hum from the amp if the volume controls are up.

Many guitars require a battery to operate the preamp inside them.. Verify if yours needs a battery and it is fresh and properly installed.

These batteries are turned on by plugging in the guitar cable into the guitar. Leaving the cable in will exhaaust the battery, often within a day.

One string broken, how to refit it?


Sorry Dude
If you can not replace a broken string, then you need a few lessons from a friend.Find a pal to jam with.
It sounds like you broke your E string. Take it down to the local music shop. Buy a new string and ask the guy to put it on for you. Offer them a tip, its worth it.I could tell you. But you need the string so ask for assistance and see it in 3D. Keep on playing DFD

Neck and Middle pickups make little sound even with volume at max


Hi There!!

I am a gitarist myself too and firstly let me tell you u have purchased an excellent guitar to begin with!! 
Now about the Neck\blues pickup.....If you say there is little sound this can be because of:-
1)Faulty bridge adjustment
2)There can be a problem also because of  the neck of the guitar being a bit bent in or around the place where u have the pick-ups though the chances of that are rare.

If there is no sound then please contact your dealer to change the piece....
Have a great time playing

Hoping this helped.Any help regarding the above steps , feel free to ask them.
See ya.

No instructions for a yamaha erg 121 c electric guitar


i don't really know what instructions you expected, although you should have received something for the tuner and amp. I suspect that you are new to playing the guitar, as, I don't wish to sound disrespectful, you would know what to do! So first, and again I hope not to sound like I'm treating you like a dummy, plug the guitar into the tuner input. Or if It's a piezo tuner clamp it to your headstock. Most tuners are now automatic so it should pick up on the string you are striking.Repeatedly pluck the same string til the tuner changes colour, or flashes, or some other indication to tell you the string is at pitch. Repeat the above for all 6 strings.
Then plug the cable into the amp input, switch it on, and bugger about with the controls til you get a half decent sound. ( thats what the rest of us do).Don't expext too much from this package, it is budget level, but of quite good overall quality.hope this helps

I have just purchased a Yamaha EG012 and a Yamaha GA-15 Amplifier. I've followed the instructions adn plugged everything in, but when i turn on the amp and adjust the volumes there is just a buzzing noise...


You may have a switch with 2 settings somewhere on your amp - one for active and one for passive. try changing that.

If this doesn't work, make sure you got the guitar in the line input, change the lead for another incase it's faulty, turn the volume up on the guitar to activate the pickups, and rock-out when you find the problem and fix it.
