Question about Washburn Amplifiers: 25 WATT Guitar Amplifier - Bad Dog - BD25R Car Audio Amplifier
Hi, when i turn on my amp i get no volume, howeve if i shake it you can hear noise from the reverb and sometimes it will suddenly start to work. when turned off it stops working again. pluged into the power amp in on the back it works fine but this circumvents all of the controls on the front of amp i.e no control of volume, channel, equalization. it has been suggested it may be dirty pot on volume control as in past it would work if i turned it quickly back and forth over and over again. currently i have given up as even shaking it for a while has no result. anyone who can help would be appreciated.
I would try using an electronic cleaner on the pot(s) to see if that helps. Many times either the surface of the coil, the wiper, or both become contaminated with excessive residue and fail as you describe. Shaking it or moving it quickly sometimes removes enough of the contamination for it to temporarily function again. But if you clean all of the gunk off, it will work like new. Try this inexpensive Radio Shack product. If it doesn't fix the problem, you'll need to replace the pot.
Hope this helps. If it does, please rate as "FixYa".
