Amp buzzes all the time

Make sure the ground plug is not cut off of power plug. Also, if the power switch moves in 2 directions, it is a ground reverse, meaning switch it the other way. If it doesn't, look for a ground reverse switch somewhere on the back.

One chanel of my pv 2600 amp is playing very low


Clean all back switches first of all, use a cleaning solution spray and give a 3 shot per switch, then push in-n-out several times each one and check amp functionality again.

As a starting point clean ALL switches on the back of your amp, including the Stereo/Bridge switch then re-check functionality, good luck.

I have a peavey power amp PV2600. of late after powering, it keeps on cutting off for seconds before working again. My tech tells me it might be dying off. Please advise problem and how to fix. Thank...

"Dying off"... Time for getting a new tech... that is NOT a professional definition. It has an intermittent problem. These can be hard to catch in the act. This amp is incredibly complex in the output power amp section with many components to reach the power level they do. There is over-current protection and if you drive it too hard such as putting LARGE BASS pulses into it OR putting too many speakers on it, the over current protection will be fired and it will briefly shut down. Do this test: When the unit does this, cut the mixer driving it down by 3 to 5 DB and see if it behaves. If it does, then you are exceeding the trip point of the protection circuit. This can be ALSO caused by a failing speaker OR if the speaker is being driven too hard and the voice coil moves too far. This reduces the back EMF and current spikes. Your speakers should be rated TWICE the power capability of this amp to be safe.

I have a 2600 peavey amplifier and when i turn the volum up it cuts off for about 2-3 seconds what i need to do

check that the cooling fans are working. if they are not then you are probably triggering the thermal overload protection.
