I figured this out myself. I was just babying it too much. Some tolex had bunched up between the metal chassis and the cabinet making it feel like it was caught on something. I used a flat edge screwdriver to flatten out the tolex, and then I was able to pull the chassis out the back of the cabinet.

The solder at the connector may be broken loose or a circuit board could have a crack OR the jack may be broken... this is a common problem because the users trip over cables yanking the jack sideways. Take in for repair if you are not electronically adept.

Im trying to connect a peavey kb300 with a mackie micro series 1402-VLZ 14 channel mic/line mixer

The mixer is stereo and the amp is mono. The line level out of the mixer MAY overwhelm the KB2 regular inputs so try running the mixer into the PA input jack.

All 3 cannels on my kb 100 working intermitently ? then not at all. can anyone help......cheers.......

Sometimes the bypass switch contacts on the effects jacks get oxidized and fail to connect the preamp to the power amp... test this by plugging another guitar cable between the two effects (send and return) and see if the amp is solid with the cable in place, These jacks in the music equipment are really not very durable. If in failed mode you can plug a cable into the effects RETURN and touch the tip and NOT get a it of hum, there is a problem in the power amp portion. Conversely if that works, then plug a set of headphones into the effects SEND and see if you can hear a signal from the inout coming through... Itwill only be on one side of the headphones (left) as it is a monaural jack. If you can't hear a weak signal here, the problem is in the preamp... LIKELY a cracked board or bad solder around one of the volume or master gain controls... a very common problem and often is intermittent... you might try wiggling the volume/gain pots sideways a tiny bit... if it pops on, remove the amp and look for bad solder on the control leads where they attach to the board.

Peavey Rage 158 guitar amp

I don't believe there is a power "outlet" on this, only an "inlet".

Usually the inlet will have a lead, often green, that goes to the chassis.

There will usually be two other wires, often black and white that connect to the other two pins.

From the back of the connector, with the center pin tied to the grenn wire of the triangle lower, the pin to the right should be the white and the pin to the left is the black wire

The gain control no longer works on the clean/crunch channel. all other features work fine, whats wrong with my amp?

Hi there. Try re-soldering the control pot to circuit board connections. If not, use ohm meter to verify pot functionality. If bad, replace.

Replacing the low-mid pot on a Fender Rumble 100/210 bass amp

To answer your question: YES and NO this is an easy fix.
Yes if you have the tools and knowhow, and NO if you don't know what you are doing.

There are high voltages in an amplifier that can persist even when the power is off (I have a Laney amplifier that will remain at several hundred volts for days after the power is off). There could be enough voltage stored in the capacitors to give a fatal shock.

At a minimum, you need a voltmeter, soldering iron, some 64/40 rosin-core solder, the replacement part.
Such a fix is pretty cheap for a repair shop. This is about as easy a fix a repairman can have, but thats because they know how to get in and do it without getting hurt.
I work on amplifiers and build them, and always take each time I reach into an amplifier that has had upto several hundred volts seriously. I know that I would charge no more than 1/2-3/4 hour shop time for such a fix plus parts (or about 30-ish bucks). I would think a local shop can do this for you at no more than 30-45 dollars per hour shop rate. Any competant repairperson should only take 15 minutes or so after the amp is out of the case: more time is spent getting it in and out and being safe about it with this type of repair.

Hop that helps!
