The two tabs usually are just installed into loose fitting slots, and the bend in the tabs is what creates the "spring" action (and contact) on the battery terminals. To reinvigorate the tabs, you have to bend the portion of the tab that touches the battery terminal into the box, but you HAVE to hold the half of the tab with the soldered wire stationary while you do it. It works well, but requires patience. However, sometimes you can't get it to work, in which case go to a music store and order a replacement box (Allparts.com often has what you might need).

My acative stays on even unplugged on my bass


when you say on, do you mean the battery continues to drain? If that is the case, check the battery ground wire at the jack...has it been repaired recently? Sometimes techs reconnect it to the main system ground, which continuously drains the battery whether plugged in or not. Or...sometimes the battery ground wire tab on the jack is touching shielding (if it is loose and rotates)...that would cause the same issue...

FRONTMAN LEAD CRACKLES


5 possible causes-
1) dirty controls- you can clean them up with a shot of LPS1 through the vent of the control or from the gap under the terminals and work the control back and forth.
2) dirty tube contacts, Wipe the tube pins with a product named "Rail Zip" from a hobby shop.
3) dirty jacks- Use the LPS1 on the jack and the plug and plug the jack in a few times to clear the contact points.
4) cold solder joint on any of those items- reflow solder with a dab of new and make sure the contact is fully flowed.
5-broken wire- at any of those places mentioned.

While there is a remote chance you are developing static electricity and it is discharging into the instrument and getting amplified, if the ground connections are sound- that should not happen.

If it continues to make noise- check the guitar itself for the same issues of dirty contacts, dirty controls, bad solder connections, and broken wires as described for the amp.

How to play with headphones


If you have a preamp output jack or a headphones jack on the back- those will work. They should interupt the speaker if you are wanting it for practice purposes.

if you do not have those, and want to add one, tap at the control grid of the Phase inverter ECC83/12AX7A which should be common grid to the final preamp tube, which should also be an ECC83/12AX7A and locate the coupling capacitor so you can tap ahead of it with a .1 microfarad 600 WVDC capacitor or one that matches the factory capacitor in series to the new jack, with shielded audio wire/coax to the new jack location, at the tip and the coaxial jacket should go to chassis ground at both ends. The grid is either pin2 or pin7 depending which way they chose to wire it. I do not have an Orange Amp schematic in front of me.

If you want to risk noise at that location, make it interuptable so when the headphones are removed, the circuit completes to the N/C contact of the headphone jack (which opens/opened when headphone plug is inserted.) back to the grid terminal. with that terminal connected by shielded wire back to the grid.

Instead of adding a capacitor, you can use the factory capacitor, just mount a terminal strip next to the phase inverter and move the capacitor to that new terminal tab and the wire to lead to the tip together on that ear, and the return wire from the headphone jack goes to the now vacated tube pin terminal. .

Look to see if on of the filament/heater pins is grounded to chassis- if so, just ground the sleeve contact of the jack. If it is not, determine which pin is closest to chassis ground potential and run the sleeve contact over to that pin. could be either 4, 5, or 9 Make sure to use an insulating headphone jack.

EL34 outputs should never be connected to a headphone.

How do I fix the plastic jack inside the speaker? It seems loose, yet it connects fine, but still doesn't work. The wiring is fine.


Open the speaker and either secure the jack or replace it if it is broken... common problem when cables get tripped over.

I have a hum that almost disappears when I touch the output jack. It isn't at all related to leads, external influences. I have tried different amps, leads, new battery etc.


As a test, if you can find a system that you can connect with a short lead to a DI box set to "ground lift" and that then goes to an amp or mixer try it and report results. In the meantime VERIFY that your power system is grounded (three wire plugs on the amp) Verify you are at least 6 feet from the amp or other devices generating magnetic fields. I suspect the cause is bad grounding of the amp due to the receptacles or a broken ground pin someplace in the system.

I have an allen and heath Xone 22 Mixer. Its great, except due to the lack of a power switch I pulled the ac adapter/power cord out too many times and now it has a really bad, loose connection. It works,...


Usually the connector that is board mounted is the problem. I would OPEN the unit as there may just be broken solder at the connector inside. If the connector requires replacement, find one at Digikey.com by searching for "power connector coaxial".

Hint: In the future install one of those little lamp switches that are in a little plastic box with knurled knob sticking out the sides. ONLY break ONE wire from the adapter to avoid getting the connections reversed. Since the wires are smaller than lamp cord, tack solder the wires to the piercing points of the switch .

M-audio av20 right speaker has no sound coming out of it at all...


To troubleshoot the problem start with the bit that is working - the left speaker.
  1. Unplug the input leads on the back of the left speaker and swap them round.
  2. If sound now comes out of right speaker and not the left the problem is with your sound source (computer, IPOD or whatever) or the connecting cable is faulty.
  3. If there is still no sound from the right speaker try turning the volume control knob up and down quickly several times - does this produce any sound from the right speaker? Sometimes the electrical contacts get dirty and this can help clean them.
  4. Turn the speakers off using the volume control knob. Disconnect the speaker wire for the right speaker from the OUTPUT on the left speaker (push the red and black tabs downwards and gently pull the wires out. Find a small 1.5 volt battery (an AA or AAA size will do nicely) and touch the bare ends of the speaker wire briefly on the battery terminals. If you hear a slight crackling sound the wire and the speaker are okay and the problem is in the amplifier, which will need repair or replacement - not a job for an amateur.
  5. If you don't get any sound from the battery test find another piece of speaker wire (any piece of 2 core cable with bare ends will do for testing) and repeat the battery test. If you get sound then replace the speaker wire. If not remove the speaker wire again and go to next step.
  6. Lay the speaker face downwards and carefully unscrew the back panel (don't do this if it is still under manufacturers warranty - take it back for repair or replacement). Lift the back panel off carefully and slowly taking care not to pull the connecting wires inside the cabinet, which will probably be quite short. You may have to settle for just rotating the back panel slightly so that you can see inside if the wires are too short to do otherwise.
  7. Use sticky tape to tightly attach the bare ends of the speaker wires to the terminals of the battery. Touch the loose ends of the speaker wires on the two metal terminals where the internal wires are joined onto the back of the big loudspeaker cone. If this produces a crackling sound it is the internal wiring in the cabinet that needs re-soldering. Otherwise the loudspeaker unit has failed and will need replacement.

Pedal works with power supply but nor with a brand new battery


The problem is with a bad power connector.

The connector has a spring tab that touches the center pin when the external power is NOT plugged in. This tab brings the battery power to the center pin. Some of the springs as an alternative act as a switch to a contact for the negative lead of the battery. These suffer the same problem of loss of spring tension and failure to contact.

The spring gets weak and no longer touches and battery power will not work.

9v battery wires came loose. peavey 5 string bass


The negative battery terminal will go to a black wire and that will be soldered to one of the volume control cases. That makes the remaining wire easy. The negative terminal pole on the battery is the larger round one.

You can replace the battery yourself in about 20 minutes. It is not soldered. You will need a replacement battery, which is a CR2032 watch battery, a small Philips screwdriver, and needle or thin-nosed pliers.
1. Remove all cables from the dtxplorer unit, and remove it from the drum kit rack.
2. Remove all 6 screws from the bottom side (i.e. opposite the face)
3. Remove the 3 lowest screws from the rear (jack-filled) side, including the one which holds in the little plastic power cord hook, then lift off the bottom and set aside.
4. You will see the bottom circuit board, covering the top board. Carefully pull off the spade connectors from the power switch, using pliers or patient wiggling, they are on fairly tight but will come loose. Note which one is which for proper reattachment.
5. Near the center of the board is a little white plastic post end sticking up, through a hole, from the inside (top) board, with small tabs. This loosely attaches the two boards. Using small pliers, squeeze the tabs on the post end, and pull up on the board and it will separate from the inside (top) board. Carefully move the board toward the front of the unit to free the jacks from the holes in the case, and then you can easily fold the board toward the front, like opening a book. (Don't try and remove the large wire sets attaching the two boards)
6. You will see the button-like battery. Just push it toward the spring clips at one side and lift it out. Replace it with the new battery, + side out.
7. Just reverse the steps to reassemble, hook it up and you're ready to go. Easier to do than this makes it seem. Greg
