My crate amp makes a static sound when i turn controls and the cord input port makes noise when moving it around


Most likely a loose connection. Try to tighten the knobs and the cord port to the crate. You need to do this from the inside. These tend to loosen with use and anything that is connected with them will also loosen, like the electrical connections. Good luck!

Crate flexwave 120 head effects malfunctioning


That is probably a momentary switch that is dirty and sticking. These onboard effects on guitar amps are usually nothing more than a computer sound card and I've found bad connections going to and from them as well. I do think that switch is dirty and sticking, though.

I have a Crate PA-8 4 ohm 150 watt PA head that I run to four Peavy 10" PA speakers (two per side in series). It was very good, clean sound, but the speakers were cheap and may have been pushed too hard -...


150 watts should be easily handled by four Peavey speakers in the connection you described.. If the Peavey's are 8 ohms, then your total load was 8 ohms for the series/parallel arrangement which is well within the 2 ohm drive capability of the Crate according to specs.

I question if you really mean the speakers were in series? This requires a special cable to do this. Now if you mean they were "daisy chained" like the amp went to one speaker and another cable connected that speaker to another, then you REALLY had ALL speakers in parallel electrically which would be at the 2 ohm low limit of the amp... In either case, with only 1/4 of the 150 Watts to each, the speakers should NOT have been damaged. The amp MAY have been damaged. Try each speaker individually at a REASONABLE level to test.

If you plug into the effects loop out jack,OFTEN the connection to the internal power amp is broken so you might have to arrange a special cable as a wye to go back into the power amp as well as your external amp. In any case pwere ALL interconnected amps, etc from the same power source/receptacle for system safety.

The effects do not work on my Crate VTX 350 H, what's wrong with it?


Are you getting sufficient power to the amp?

Could be a loose connection inside the amp (such as a wire), a bad component, or a severed ground. Many possibilities here. If you know electronics, take a multimeter and start testing all the components. Look for any burn marks, check for broken solder connections, and continuity test all wires. Be careful since amps can hold a deadly voltage for a good while. Be sure to drain the capacitors before doing anything else inside it. If you do not feel comfortable doing this, you can take it to a electronics repair person. Keep in mind that Crate is one of the harder amps to fix because most of their components are surface mount.

Crate amp blew a house fuse and stopped working. pilot light still works and I can get a distorted signal through the headphones if I play a guitar very loudly through it.


When a piece of equipment causes a fuse to blow or a breaker to trip, it normally means something in the equipment's circuit was shorted. Either because of heat, moisture, a loose screw, loose wire, loose part, a bug, etc. For safety reasons, don't plug it back in and take it to a repair shop.

Hope this helps!

Crate tube amp will not power up but cooling fan tries to run


Yes.
Are you saying that the only indication that it is running at all is that the fans are running? So the tubes don't light up? No indicators on the front of the amp?
Power supplies that provide multiple voltages, which your amp has, can provide some of the voltages while having a problem that prevents them from providing others, all while not blowing a fuse. If you are not confident in your ability to work on a piece of electronic equipment that has 120VAC coming in and at least 175VDC or more present inside it, bring it to a service center.
The good news is that it is probably not horribly serious. Problems like this can almost always be repaired in a cost effective manner.
