Fender Squier Champ 15 amp

I aquired a Fender Squier Champ 15 amplifier, and the input one jack doesnt work. Amp works fine with guitar plugged in to input 2 jack. Looking at the circuit board, I can see that there are 6 pins on the number 2 jack and all ae soldered to the cicuit board. Jack 1 has 6 pins also but only four are soldered to the board. Is this right or did this amp come from the factory with a dead #1 input jack. I got it used.

Hi lumberman597

The cool thing about guitar amps is that you can mess with the knobs until you find the sound that you like. There is no particular way to use it, just try to find a tone that suits you. Start with gain controls down and tone knobs at 12o'clock. Turn up the gain(one at a time) to get distortion and more sustain to your sound. Turn the distortion up midrange down and treble up for metal sounds, more bass and midrange for bluesy sounds. just play around with it and you will see what I mean. Here is a guide from Fender on how to setup your guitar. If you are not sure, a good guitar tech can make any old axe feel and sound great with a good setup
unfortunately, Fender do not have an electronic copy of your owners manual to download, but you can buy one for $5 direct from them here It is only a 1 page manual.... so you will get more from just messing with it.

Musicians spend there whole lives tuning and tweaking knobs to get the sound they are looking for. It wont take you long to start doing the same.:)

There seems to be something wrong with the lead input socket on my guitar...it only seems to work (i.e. get a sound through to the amp) when the jack is wiggled around in the socket on the guitar and even...


Yeah, sounds like a bad connection. If you are handy, you can take the jack out yourself and determine if it is a loose wire or solder connection. If everything looks fine then you should squeeze the connections togather inside the jack itself. Sometimes it just gets pushed apart and does not hit around the male end secure enough.

I Have the fender 212 soild state amp.When I plug my guitar in to the input.One of two things happen ethier no sound or a hum.I have had this amp in the shop .Had it returned to me and still the same...


You likely have a bad input jack. A VERY common thing with these. They don't like to work on the jack because one has to remove too much to replace it. Lazy shop! Sometimes the solder has just broken loose or the board pads damaged. Replace the jack anyway as they take a beating.

Find a shop willing to work on it properly and DON'T accept it back until it is fixed!

Another problem with amps can be the preamp output jack switch which fails to close leaving the amp dead... but it usually won't hum much when that happens.

HINT: Loop your instrument cord through the handle so when you trip and yank on the cord it won't break the input jack... saves a lot of jack repairs!

Feedback overpowers amp output...I have fixed my guitars, fixed and replaced chords, tried other amps, tried other guitars, and nothing seems to fix the problem...If there a way to switch polarity on this...


Hi there. If there is still feedback with nothing plugged into the amp, the problem is internal to the amp. Probably worn input jack or intermittent connector internal. Try thumping on amp with nothing hooked up. (guitar)

Cable broke off in the input jack


I'm pretty sure t6hat the output jack is a sealed unit(contacts inside soldered to the surface of the circuit board. You may be able to grasp the center shaft of the plug with a thin jawed hemostat or really skinny long nosed pliers and pull it out that way. Make sure the amp is off and unplugged from the wall. If that doesn't work you will either have to get it removed at a shop or disassemble the amp to remove the circuit board and unsolder the jack and replace it or get the broken plug out of the jack once it is unsoldered. I've never had a Line6 apart yet but thats probably the type of jack they used. Thats because it has to be electronically isolated from the chassis. Hope this helps.

Electric guitar pick up doesnt work?


se3veral things have to be ruled out, start with the cord that your using to your amp, is it good? next is the volume on both the guitar and amp also good, the last thing that should be wrong is the pickup itself unless a wire is broken off of it, you can usally check this from somewhere on the back of the guitar, if all the wires are good, check the two volume controls and on the back of the amp check the wires going to the speaker.
