Hi. My old Peavey amp has recently started to sporadically cut in and out. I will have the volume set and be playing bass when all of a sudden it goes silent. Sometimes it cuts back in or sometimes I turn it off and on and fiddle with the gain knob and it returns to normal.
Any idea what it could be?

Re: Peavey TNT115 AMP cuts out
The problem is in amplifier section caused by change value resistor or leak capacitor or cold ,loose or crack solder joint parts this the common problem of over heating and shuts out the amplifier caused by abnormal distribution of current,try to check all the capacitor and resistor and replaced the defected parts ,so your receivers works normal again.

What do you by setup for? Are you looking for certain settings to get a certain sound? I'd do a search for the player's name + amp settings. I would try the tone controls first if I was trying to tailor the sound. Try to adjust treble bass, midrange, and try with the volume down and the tone controls all the way up and reduce from there.
You seem to have the answers to your question. I would just resolder the connections anyway without checking. If it solves the problem you have saved yourself a lot of money. If it doesn't follow the other steps in order of cheapness!
it is possible that you have eitherr a power realted issue or a protection circuit in acttion. First of all takeou the plugs and ccheck if there is corrosion in the pins, burn marks. If so clean them using a good emery paper,If so do not use the outlet that you are presently using. Otherwise If this seems OK, then you must check your speaker connections and check to find if the amp is over heating when it cuts off. Open the set top coverr and maek a good cleaning and tightening of the cords and boards while checking for burning smell. If you are able to access the main board, try to check for dry soldering bad joints in power and output cicuits. Use a good iron to do the resoldering and check again. If set is cutting off at high volume or high bass, then reduce load to confirm. If so you will have to check for distortion or wrong biasing in the output stages. Hope you check this out. Good day
Use a multi meter,set it to 12v,turn system on use some bass.while music is playiing hold pos of multi meter to poss- neg to neg- on amp see what voltage is running at at what its dropping to it sounds more like a voltage drop problem.if you hooked it up back words u could fry unit..Have you done the big 3.what size is your alt,and what is your amps draw..
Hello all you have to do is turn your master volume down to just barley on then turn your pre amp volume somwhere about 2:oclock depending on how much distortion you want ajust your volume on your guitar a little past halfway to give yourself some headroom in case you need to turn up some while you are playing! just think of it as your guitar is your first pre-amp then your amp is second preamp in line ,that is your over drive ,then the master volume is how loud you want the overall volume i hope this help's ya!
For rock and slapping you are going to want to set the Bass and Treble controls high and the Mids low. For music such as Jazz you are going to want more mids so that your sound will be fatter. If there is a button marked "Mid-Scoop" you'll want that on when slapping.
