Marshall jcm 2000 dsl 100 head not powering cabs 4/8ohm outs

I have a marshall jcm 2000 dsl 100 head that will not power either or both of my marshall 1960 cabs from the 4/8 ohm outputs. I did not have this problem until I connected the second cab to the 4ohm output, turned on the amp got a short blast of sound then only a sizzley tone that seemed to eminate from the head itself. I quickly switched off the power unplugged the second cab and switched the head and cab back to 8 ohms only to find the same problem. Now the only way to use the rig at all is form the separate 16ohm output driving a single cab, on the 16 ohm setting. What gives?

Since you are getting some output, the amp section is probably OK. There are circuits designed to handle thge difference impedence outputs. This should be a relatively simple repair for any shop that handles these units. If you don't have one local to you, let me know and I'll locate the service info and get you more specifics.

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).

Marshall Lead 100 Mosfet head, no sound.


are you popping fuses??? check the effects, preamp, and power amp jacks to make sure they (even if not in use) are Normally Closed. Sometimes they loose their contact to ground on the Tip of the jack, which opens the circuit and interrupts the normal function. then check the input jack for good contact to the pcb and solder joints, as well as all pots (especially the volume). if all this checks out, and it still is having issues, i would then move on to the grounding resistors (solder welds can heat up and break as these resistors get hot) and resolder them to the board. still no output, then diodes / rectifier / filter caps.

Marshall JCM 2000 dual super lead 50 watt going out on me


Very nice amp!

First off, is the amp getting sufficient power? An unreliable AC current from your wall can affect the performance.

Have you tried the amp with a different speaker? Checked for a loose connection from the amp to the speaker? Is it the correct ohms rating?

Second, are you experienced in electronics? The problem could lie in a faulty solder connection, a bad component, etc.

If you are not confident in opening the amp and troubleshooting it yourself, take it to a audio repairman. Marshall's are some of the easier ones to fix.....

Marshall 50w dsl


Put a patch cable from send to return on the effects loop in the back of the amp and see if it goes away. I would check your speaker, connections and speaker cable also. Is this a head or a combo?

I have a marshall 100w JCM 2000, DSL 100 Head, going into a 1960 A 4x12 cabinet. Which inputs and settings should i use on the rear of the amp in order not to damage it


Most 1960 cabs have an option for 8 or 16 ohm... i dont think there is a 4 ohm option. The Jcm 2000 heads have the ability to do all three ohm setting. Thats all you really have to worry about. Make sure the ohms match up. The 1960 cabs typically have 4 t-75 speakers in them which are 75 watts each so wattage is not a problem. There is some argument about what ohms sound best. It doesn't really change that much in the sound in my personal opinion. I run mine at 16 ohms though cause i think it sounds brighter...

Marshall jcm dsl 100 head


try to find any diagram from a website.. then print it and give it to your amp tech. so he could Identify what are the wrong, what the first guy did to your amp and its better to buy a whole new tubes. I know your amp tech is very good. I'm just a noob about tubes yet I want to know how this works. hoping for the best for your amp tube.

Marshall tube amp problems


There is a bridge rectifier and red and black wires jumping from preamp tube to preamp tube. These need to be resoldered, take it to your favorite pro audio service center. I'm doing this to the same amp right this minute! Send it to me, I'll fix it. Tom Peary Norman's Electronics Atlanta, Ga 770 451 5057 www.neiusa.com
