Question about Marshall Mg50dfx 50-Watt Combo Guitar Amplifier

5 Answers

I have a marshall mg100dfx and the power switch fell out

The button came off and two metal clips fell out, can i fix this myself, i know how much a shop would charge and it would probably cost half as much as the amp.

A repair shop will be able to fix this for you I get my amps rewired for about $20 so a replacement switch will not be very expensive.

I'm sure if nothing broke you can probably fix it if you take your time and are patient!

    No Once The Switch Breaks Its Better To Just Replace It. I Swear When Mine Broke And I Didnt Replace It The Thing Would Break Every Other Time I Wanted To Play. If You Buy A New Switch Replacing It Will Take About 5 Minutes. Unplug It Then Grab Yourself A Flat Head And Pry The Little Edge Of The Switch Outward And It Will Come Out. Then Undo The Wires They Can Just Be Pulled Off And I Would Remove The Switch Before I Went And Got A New One Just To Make Sure i Got One The Same Size. Ok So Remove The 2 Or 3 Wires From The Rear Of The Switch Then Put Them In The Same Order on the New One. Then Simply Just Push The New Switch In And You'll Be Ready To Rock.

My gemini cdmp 6000 cue button is stuck it will not come out of cue. i need to hold cue button down in order for it to play


You need to take it to the shop and get the switch replaced. It shouldn't cost more than an hour's labor/bench charge and the cost of the switch. Depending on your market probably $75-100.

Effects quit working on Acoustic AG30 amp. what are the likely problems and costs to repair?


I am guessing it is solid state? If it were tubes it would be an easy fix but the solid state amps are very hard to diagnose and repair. I think the Guitar Center has a repair department and they probably know the trouble shooting steps. I am guessing it is a board, but the way to trouble shoot would be to know how much current should be flowing to individual leads. I do not have this information, but you will need a multi meeter in order to start the process. No reputable repair shop should charge you any thing to give you an estimate.

If the backlight is on and just half of the display data is there, it is probable the conductive strip has come away from the display or the contact portion of the board where the conductor strip lays on the circuit board.

If it is under warranty, contact Yamaha. If it not under warranty, you can try to fix it, but once adhesive lets go, it is diffeicult to get them to premanently readhere. A repair shop that is Yamaha authorized is able to get the New parts from Yamaha that fit.

The light on my Ashdown mag 300 combo input level does not light up. How easy is it to fix. Electronic places charge 85.00 just for a quote and 85.00 and hour plus parts to fix it. HELP!.


If you mean the light in the meter, those can be hard to replace and mosts shops would replace the meter itself which would up the cost. It is probably a 12 or 14 volt bulb(s). Look at the back of the meter and see if there is a removable socket to get at the bulb... if not, then the bulb(s) is internal and probably a soldered in grain of wheat bulb(s). If you have never worked on meters before it takes GREAT care to keep contamination out when working on them. I would certainly not pay $85 to have bulbs replaced... use an external lamp if you really need to seee the meter... one of the little LED ones would work.

I have a vintage 30 and I put an ohm meter on it and it's measuring open circuit and I'm not getting any sound out of it. I need to know what I need to do to repair the speaker. I'm not looking...


One can buy re-coning kits, but you do need some experience to do this work. The kit probably cost around $30 or so. There are instructinal videos on You Tube that also give you places to buy the kit. search for "peaker reconing" on YouTube,com

My pv6 mixers red clip lights remain on


FIRST check that your power adapter is 16 VAC at 1 AMP and that it is the original unit.

The clip lights monitor levels at several points. If you cranked the EQ's for maximum, say bass, that MAY cause them to illuminate.

As a test, set all EQ's at mid point. Remove ALL input cables. Are the lights still on?

It is possible that you can have a ground loop that is putting signals in that causes clipping. Another source is if you have a microphone that may be FEEDBACKING at supersonic frequency that you can't hear... that is why we disconnect all the inputs as a test.

Finding schematics so one can repair these devices can be a problem. If ALL the clip lights ar on, then it is probably the reference level source for the clip level threshold... however finding a schematic would be necessary and while part cost would be probably under a dollar, the labor and time to find the schematic would be unknown.

Fender 100w twin amp no sound


Here is a test you can do at home for the sound. Test out the speaker. To do this you will need two alligator clips with wire about ft. long. Remove the speaker wire clips under the speaker magnet and attach the alligator clips . Take a C size battery and touch both ends of the battery. You should here a scratching sound . If you do you know your speaker is OK. Then you have a problem that needs a Technician. A good music shop should be able to give you a idea of the repair cost. Don't go to a big music change, find a small full service shop that deals with Fender. I don't think this will cost a lot. Fenders play for years, Its truly worth the bench fee. Good luck DFD , please rate me thanks
