MY Marshall JCM 2000 100Watt head is quiet TURNED fully on stand by OFF and ready to plug guitar into the INPUT Jack. Soon as I plug into the INPUT Jack cracking noise hissing noise.


I would suspect a bad cable. Also, these symptoms show up if you mistakenly use a speaker cable (unsheided) as a guitar cable (shielded).

Low volume on my marshall


I am very new here and don't know how to answer a question to a specific problem so I will write about the most common problems that I have had over the decades doing guitar amp repairs. If you find that your amp is extremely low in volume and then suddenly comes back to normal- check out the effects return [or power amp in] jack. Especially in Marshall amps-these corrode and your signal dies. If there is loud noise such as hissing and crackling with no guitar patch cord in the input jack- the input jack is likely at fault. They normally have switching contacts that ground part of the input circuit when the 1/4 inch male plug is disconnected. When this in is corroded or too weak to make normal contact, you can get these symptoms. If your amp is a solid state Marshall or Fender and there is a random buzzing sound with no guitar signal connected- hit the side of the amp and listen for the buzz to go away or become louder-if it does, this usually means that the connections are loose at the two large filter capacitors. In one or more Marshall amps, they use a filter circuit in the low voltage power supple for the preamp tubes. If you encounter a dead Marshall[the model escapes me now] remove the circuit board and resolder the four connections at the bottom of the bridge rectifier. If you have any other amplifier repair questions you can email me direct at computerlen@hotmail.com.

Make sure you are using this on a three wire grounded receptacle. If you are on an old two wirepower system, have a ground installed in the receptaclel you are using. If you are on a grounded circuit, then exercise your warranty for repair/replacement.

Hi there.You may have a blown fuse.Unplug the amp then undo the screws that hold it all together.Remove the wires off the speaker and put an AA battery across the speaker connections(of the speaker).You will hear a clicking sound if the speaker is ok.If not then the speaker is blown.This could also damage the circuitry.Check the fuse(s) and replace with exactly the same rating.Assemble and test if still no go then the circuitry is faulty.You could then take it to a repair shop and ask for a quote to repair it.
It might be cheaper to buy a new unit.

Can I plug an ipod nano into my guitar amp, and if so what will I need?


The ipod is stereo and the Marshall is mono. You would need to "mix" the left and right channels of the ipod. You could use a simple passive mixer made of two resistors, one from each of the two channels from the IPOD to a single plug for the Marshall. Just joining the two channels without the resistors would have the IPOD outputs fighting each other. You can use 1 K ohm resistors. All parts are available at Radio Shack.

Check for a dry/cracked solder joint where the 1/4 inch phono input jack connects to the printed circuit board. Solid state Marshalls are renowned for this.

I play Gibson USA Sgs, one with 490/498 humbuckers and one with 57classics....The Amp has a loud buzz like feedback all the time on the overdrive channel.


If the amp is quiet with cables unplugged at the same settings as observing the buzz, the amp is OK.

In this case, cables and/or shielding and wiring in the guotar is suspect.

Guitar pickups are sensitive to magnetic fields and you can search out these fields by moving and orienting your guitar to find maximum buzz.

If the amp has objectional buzz with teh cables UNPLUGGED then the amp needs servicing. Filter capacitors among other things are suspect.
