I can say with a fair amount of certanty that this is the control knob on your guitar, these are fairly cheap and if you have any mechanical ability you can replace it yourself, there will be some soldering involved so if you can't do that I would take it to your local music store and most have some sort of repair department, this shouldn't be a big bill to get fixed.

Marshall MG100 MG DFX. Full speaker noise with all volume knobs turned to zero and on all settings. When the amp is switched on there is a horrible loud buzz/growl that can only be left on for a split...

well theres only 3 sections of the amp the problem can be in. Pre-amp, Power amp, or speaker. First Unhook the speaker. If you can turn on the amp after that and hear your guitar through the headphone jack this means your pre-amp is ok. at that point you can just take a voltmeter across the 2 terminals of the speaker to see if oyu have 4, 8, or 16 ohms. that'll prove the speakr is good. I'd also try to connect and disconnect the pedal a few times to see if the normals in the jack on the amp are just being stupid. if all this concludes no success, you sir have a power problem.

When I turn the amp on I hear a blop blop blop etc etc sound. I tried everything but notging seems to work. The diods are ok, the solderings are ok the LM1875T seems OK. What could this be? How can I solve...

This sounds like a DC feedback problem in the power amp. Check all the resistors R86 through R96. Verify that capacitor C80 is healthy. The right tool to solve this is an oscilloscope.

I am no longer able to turn on my amp. I was running a bass head through it a few months ago, and havent used it since. Now the amp wont turn on at all. I have tried turning the master volume down to 0,...

probolly all you did was run a head into another amp and just caused your marshall to overheat/overpower and blew your output transistor. i you drop the chassis out and look at the chip on the heatsink is it blown? also check all internal and external fuses.

Ive just purchased a marshall mg250dfx amp and when i play the volume cuts down low and then back up again like its fading in and out every so often

Since you just purchased this, verify that your guitar and cables are good on another amp and if they are good, then exercise your warranty on the Marshall.

Connectors and cables for guitars are chronic problems so verify they are good to avoid looking foolish.

While playing, the volume cuts up and down in all the channels.

Fiirst check if your input connector is bad. Move the cable right at the connector and see if the volume jumps... HOWEVER before doing that even, verify your guitar is not the problemm using another amp.

If it is definetly the Marshal, it will likely need servicing.

It could be a bad volume control or a cracked circuit board.

Problem of marshall g80rcd, volume drop when i play

It sounds like your volume control is dirty. You will have to disassemble the amp enough to get access to the volume potentiometer which is soldered to the circuit board. There will be a square hole in it that you can spray some contact cleaner into the control. Use only contact cleaner as anything else could damage the control. Use a small squirt and rotate the shaft. If this doesn't solve the problem you may have to replace the control. While you have it apart, examine the solder side to make sure all the solder joints are perfect especially those on the controls. A bad solder joint can also cause the same problem. Before you take the amp apart unplug the power with the amp on and the volumes turned down. This will discharge the capacitors so it will be safe to work on. I hope this helps.
