    found the problem. grounded the mixer seperately to earth ground (since it is used mainly in live playing) and it removed the static. will try on the next live jig.

    thank you for your reply.

    i amanged to remove the static once i grounded the mixer seperately, rather than to the electircal ground. now the static has disaapeared.

    i had taken the guitar to two different repair places and they both indepenently said that the guitar was fine! that's wheni stated to work on the grounding issue.

    yes you are right that with the volume turned all the way up, it becomes a very sensitive instrument and amplifies even the littlelest of all sounds, and my effort was to reduce that to the minimum, which grounding solved.

    i dug a metal pipe abotu 10' in gound and watered it a bit and conencted the mixer ground to it. it removed all the static!

    thank you for your advise...

To me this is a natural reaction to having the volume all the way up, when you touch the strings your stopping any vibration from taking place there by stopping the static, or the other problem could be that your pickups are set up much to close to your strings, try to lower them and see what happens, a bad cord could also be the culprite.

Behringer ac 112 guitar amp powers up, display works. dials act normally, but no sound. only static as volume turned down (speaker works). amp was left on for long period


Try putting guitar trough the FX Loop, if there is still no sound, you may have a problem with the Power Supply.

Static at louder volumes


All you need to confirm is to remove the connection to the guitar, remove the jack and cord to the guitar and now check if the noise is prevalent at higher volume, when the volume control is turned up. If so the fault is with the cord , the jack or the gutiar pick up insulation or internal connection or shielding.
Cross check with a seperate cord or another amplifier to confirm the case.
If the noise is from within the amplifier then it is possible there is fault in the preamplifier, fault with shielding of the inputs or the preamp, broken groung connection.
Compliments of the Season.

Jvm 410h squeals with feedback in most distorted modes at about half volume even when guitar volume is off


Test if it does it with the guitar cable unplugged from the amp. If it does, then it is time for servicing... If not, then you have a system grounding problem and the guitar cable is "leaking" signal into the amp. This can happen even if guitar is NOT connected.

I have a washburn rr 2v and when it is plugged into an amp there is no sound but all the wires are connected in the back and the pickups are still magnetic


Here are some things to check:
- Are all volume controls turned up 1/2-way? - Try a different guitar patch cable. - Does your amp have remote switchable inputs? Is your guitar plugged into the *active* channel on the amp? - Is the amp turned on?

Not getting enough distortion(esp ltd ax-260)


Hi,

It's not your pickups. It would be nearly impossible to loosen a wire inside of your guitar by having even heavier than your amp head drop on it. It is most likely your volume pot. The post, if hit hard enough, can virtually distroy your pots. Another possibility could be your jack, al though considering where it's located on your guitar, it would be very hard to damage it by having something drop onto it.

There is little else that could be the problem. Hopefully you didn't damage your guitar too badly. If the guitar was in front of me, it would be a relatively easy diagnosis.

Fortunately, volume and tone pots are inexpensive, and if you're handy with a soldering iron (or you have a friend that is) it is an easy install with four to six solder points, depending on your configuration. I don't want to assume it's a stock setup, but when you take off the rear electronics cover, you will immediately see what configuration you have.

If you have possibly damaged the pickup bobbins (assuming you have the stock humbuckers in your guitar), you would be able to see the damage, It would either look damaged,or work correctly. As you know bobbuns are simply wound wire, and that's not easy to damage. Plus your strings provide a minimal amount of protection, unless your amp head slammed it very hard. Start by replacing the volume pot. Cheapest parts first. There is no way to test the pot with anything like a potentiometer, because there is virtually no voltage that passes through the pot. Additionally, unless you have active pickups, your pickups cannot be either. If you do have to replace your electronics, you can find a large variety and even upgrade your parts by searching eBay. The good thing is that you havce a guitar, and guitar parts are abundant, relatively cheap, and most people change out electronics just to achieve a different sound.

If you are so inclined, most good guitar shops will diagnose your problem for cheap and apply the cost of the diagnosis to the cost of the repair. Good luck, and I hope I have given you some information to work with.

Thank you for using FixYa

Electric Guitar wont play through Amp


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.
