Peavey solo series SPECIAL 112 ; Loud him , intermittently


Most of the time amplifier hum is caused by the outlet that it's plugged into, maybe no ground or there's other appliances on the same circuit causing interference? And sometimes it's as simple as a little internal feedback, certain C notes on the Guitar cause distortion with tube amps, the best fix is a $100 power conditioner like made by Monster cables or others.... hope this helps?

Peavey problems


Numerous possible issues with your description. I would start with the tubes, and check if not one or more has faulted.

Peavey 6505 plus buzz...even when all controls on zero and no guitar plugged in


Sounds like a bad power supply filter cap...the buzz you're hearing is the 60 cycles hum that filter caps reduce or (hopefully) eliminate altogether. It may also be related to the tubes but finding the bad one will require some work. Any friends have this same amp? If so, try swapping one tube at a time and see if you get lucky. If this amp is new take it back ASAP as it is a manufacturing defect.

Peavey xr 8600 about 6 yrs old used weekly heard a loud pop them a low emiting hum no sound comes thru .... is it time for a tech ? or dose it sound like an easy fix like fuse or something power on board...


Check the caps in the PSU, these give out over time although not normally when used regularly. You may be lucky and be able to see one or more with bulging tops. If you can replace them and all MAY be OK. Whilst in there check for any visible signs of anything burnt or blown. If it looks too bad or there is nothing obvious it's a trip to the repair shop for certain.

The amp has a failure. One side of the power amp is starting to draw excessive current to the point that the filter caps can't sustain the current so the ripple starts to be heard in the speaker. Continued use MAY burn up the speaker by sending DC through it as well as causing additional damage to circuit boards, etc..

No sound coming out of speakers when turned on


If you get absolutely no sound, not even a pop when changing the standby switch, this probably means the rectifier OR the switch has failed. The red light just means power is getting to the power transformer... probably fuse is OK.

Peavey 115 Low hum Low volume from input


The preamp section has a problem. It could be anything in the preamp but is OFTEN the input jack itself. They take a lot of abuse.

Also the insert jack contacts that forward the preamp to the power amp if no external FX are used can go bad.

Additional things are circuit board cracks caused by rough handling and also controls that have had the knobs mashed in which can destroy the potentiometers they are connected to.

PEAVEY ECOUSTIC 112 W/ NO SOUND ----muted?


then i'm afraid that your main board has a glitch that you can't repair. take it to a music shop they have the neccessary parts to repair this problem and they have the schematics that will show them which chip is faulty. i'm not sure how long you have had this amp but over time the heat causes the chips or tubes to fail. that is the best answer i can give you at this time anything else would just be a gues and a waste of time. good luck
