Question about Peavey AMPLIFIER, 1000 WPC, DDT, 8/4/2 OHMS => Model PV2000 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Guitar amp I want to fix my Peavey guitar amp. I need a new volume pot. 71190510 88 36 10KLTN are the numbers written on it. I guess its a 10K ohm potentiometer. Do you have this? It's a funny shape.

Peavey bandit guitar amplifier problem

Hello gotemneedem,

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".

Volume goes up and down on its own + a lot of scrachy noises when

You have dirty potentiometer (pot) controls. Unfortunately to clean them properly you will have to remove the amplifier from the wooden cabinet. If you're not comfortable doing this then send it to a local musical instrument/amp repair shop.

1) Disconnect AC power (duh)
2) After carefully documenting all connections, unplug/disconnect speaker, footswitch and the reverb wires on the back of the amplifier.
3) Look for four screws along top of wood cabinet that hold the inverted amplifier in place (thank you Leo Fender). Normally there is a wood block that will prevent the amplifier chassis from dropping down as the four screws are removed BUT assume nothing.
4) When amplifier is completely free from the cabinet top, carefully slide it out the backside.
5) Up on the bench avoid the filter capacitors (look like a C size battery) in the amplifier chassis located over by the AC power cord as they may still hold an electrical charge.
6) Look for the three terminals exiting each pot along the front of the amplifier chassis. Using a PLASTIC SAFE tuner/control cleaner/lube (Radio Shack Model 64-4315/Catalog #64-4315) aim the extension nozzle into the open area where the three terminals enter the pot.
7) Turn the pot knob CW/CCW while dispensing a small amount of.the control cleaner. Repeat with all controls.
8) Re-assemble (don't forget to reconnect all the wiring from step #2) and download a couple of new guitar TAB's for proper testing inspiration.....Glen :-)

Change the voltage from 240v to 120v


Unless there is a 240/120 switch on the back, this amplifier cannot change voltage. The only way is to replace the power transformer, and when you do that you need to use the exact model transformer Peavey uses for the 120 version. I have also seen differences in handling power outside of just a different transformer for USA/Euro models.
The differences between these two market models might be beyond what is cost-effective to convert.

If it is the Peavey blazer 158, they go for as cheap as 100 bucks here in the states. Or buy one new for 120.00 bucks and 4.99 shipping:

Best advice: sell it for what ever you can get and buy one here.

Hope this helps!

Mic feedback. I sing on a shure beta 58 mic, into a 350 watt peavey amp, into 2 - 200 watt peavey speakers. My band is loud, and I simply cannot get my mic loud enough for them to hear me, without constant...

It sounds as though you are pointing the peavey at the band in a practice situation? If so make sure that each speaker is at about 60 degree angle to either side of the back of the mike (you facing the speakers), most mics reject feedback when the the user is directly in front of a monitor, but Beta 58s' tend to feedback more in that situation. Alternatively (if it is a practice room situation), why not place the speakers behind the band at 60 degrees each and turn to face the band.

Peavey Session 500 Mark IV guitar amp sound loss

Hi Benjamin,

Electronics get things called dry joints, this is where the soldered components become insulated from their surrounding components intermittently. This usually manifests itself some years in use.

The symptoms are just like you describe the system cuts in and out.

I have repaired heaps of these over the years and it takes patience with a magnifying glass and a hot soldering iron to repair..

Id start with the socket connections on the main circuit board where you push cables in and them pulll them out thats where mechanical pressure is
placed onto the conection between the socket and the circuit board.

Good hunting....YU BEUT..

Need a Peavy Unity Series 1000 Mixer manual

Hi, I have the same problem with the sliders. The board is diffucult to open. You have to take off all the knobs, plastic inserts on th XLR's and nuts on the 1/4' jacks. (Not to mention those black plastic holders.) The slides are 10k and come out quiet easily if you use solder wick. The main board is held in by about 20 of those black plastic holders. You have to release them one at a time starting at the front of the board and work right top left, row by row. The holders will stay on the bottom of the mixer. has the slides in stock for $3.72 each. The phone number is 1-877-732-8391 ext. 1386. (don't forget to order the knobs for each of the slides) Hope this helps. Frank.

Buzzing bass Amp combo

The problem you have mentioned is a common one with old sets, but it also occurs in new ones also, though not frequent. You can fix this just by changing the electrolytic filter capacitors in the power supply and sub filters on the amp PCB. The new capacitors should be of the same or higher voltage rating and same capacity rating as of the existing ones. And as it is such an old one, it is better to change all the electrolytic capacitors to avoid any further problems.

What type of noise is it making? If it sounds like a load hum, you may have a 60 cycle hum issue. This is caused by a capacitor not filtering out the 60 cycle ripple on the DC voltage supplied by the power supply. If you have this problem I would suggest measuring the power supply with a DC voltmeter first and writing this measurement down. Then I would suggest you plugging the amp into an isolation transformer and taking an oscilloscope (plugged into the wall)and measuring the DC voltage while the oscilloscope is set to AC if you see an AC ripple voltage higher then .1mv you have a bad filter capacitor or a bad voltage regulator.
