Barrel socket noise/squealing

My Ibanez s470 sometimes gives off a crazy & ear splitting noise akin to feedback, when I 'jiggle' the lead a little, it stops only to start again when it wants?!? Is this the socket failing or a wiring problem? I looked for problems but couldn't see any (checked against wiring diagrams). Please help as I can't play my beloved guitar live, or even plugged in!

I would try a different guitar cord to prove that the one you use is good. If the plugin socket is rusty or corroded it could do the same. If you use a speaker cable as an instrument cable, that would happen. A loose ground can also and cheap pickups will do it naturally. I know an S series should have decent pickups but, if you got it used or something like that, you never know what was done to it before you got it.

SOURCE: The guitar lead plug has fallen inside.

The safest way to fix this is to take the amp apart to get at the jack. If the jack is a solid black plastic shape, then you should replace the jack completely. Otherwise you should have access from the side of the jack to remove the piece of hte plug that broke off.

Try contacting their service center rep at (801)566-8800. They might send you a schematic for the pedal if you explain your situation. They do recommend using the original power supply PS0912 which should still be available. Hope this helps.

Might be best to learn how intonation is worked out so you can spend some time doing it yourself. I used raeguitars guide, found it to be pretty good!

SOURCE: I have Ibanez gsr200 bass guitar , yesterday and

No question what to do... take it in under warranty since it is new !!!

You may find that there is a problem with your amp... the seller should be able to test the guitar and demonstrate normal sound for you.

Many users have TOO small of an amp and the distortions make it appear that the guitar is bad... I suspect you will want at least a 12 inch speaker and preferably a 15 inch for your bass.

When low frequency signals drive a speaker too hard it drives the voicecoil out of the linear range and the sound will be irregular..

My power jack plugin is loosely connected to the drum and it keeps resetting if I hit it too hard, Also my 1/4 inch right side jack looks to be pushed and it causes feedback severely!


normally
good policy is to replace any faulty plug in socket and the jack lead
on sound equipment

gaffer tapping the power input plug wont help much
anything pushed... is no good

note
that severe feed back has a good chance of blowing the device

My roland cube street starts making this really weird loud noise


Hi, Quick Check. Very often the input socket which is soldered directly to the circuit board, will have a broken solder joint. This is common on a very large amount of equipment. Try waggling the plug about and seeing if the noise comes and goes.
Easy fix, re-solder joint. Permanent fix, connect socket to board with flying leads, or fix socket to board with hot glue or epoxy resin.
All the best, Chris the Fader.

I have an Ibanez s470 and need a wiring diagram for 2humbuckers and 1 singlecoil with a 3 position swicht


What kind of switching options do you want? there are many ways to skin a cat but there are more ways than that to wire a guitar..
Visit the ibanez website for wiring diagrams if it is something simple you want. for more customised switching options,you should contact the pickup brand's customer care...for example,when i bought Dimarzios for my Ibanez,i emailed dimarzio and they replied within 24 hours with a pic of the correct wiring.

"Noise" is not a very good deescription... is it hum? is it static like? is it a buzz? Hum pickup by the pickups of guitars are common and some pickups are worse. If it is hum move the guitar away from magnetic sources like amps, motors, flourescent lights, dimmers... etc. Sme guitars have grounding problems and touching them varies hum. Also, do NOT let the guitar "hear" the amp as it can feedback at frequencies above your hearing even. Do some "sniffing" by moving the guitar and the orientation around the area seeing if you can find hot spots of noise to avoid.

Many try to use poor quality guitar cables and have the problem. The sleeve of the guitar cable plug turns on the battery in the guitar. Always loop the guitar cable through your belt or the guitar strap to avoid the cable wisting the plug in the guitar causing noise and WEAR that wears the plug sleeve to the point it no longer will activate the guitar.

Buzzing noise when not playing


All amplifiers make a little bit of noise (hiss) but it is normally slight and drowned out by playing. However, assuming that this is not normal system hiss, here are a few simple steps to try and locate the source of the problem by process of elimination.
  1. SAFETY FIRST - a common cause of a humming or buzzing sound can be a lack of earth (grounding) on the mains supply. With a 240volt AC supply this hum will be at 50hz (in the UK) - frequency may vary in other countries but should be similar. Check the earth first because of risk of electric shock. Until you are satisfied that this is not the cause of the problem DO NOT touch any metal parts of the amp. Remove the mains lead and try a different one. Try plugging the amp into a different mains outlet socket (preferably one on a completely different circuit).
  2. Turn off other electrical equipment in the vicinity that may be causing interference. Move the amp a bit, try rotating it by 90 degrees to change relationship to things like mains electric cables in the floor.
  3. If you are using the line-out socket to give a feed to a mixer, slave amp or p.a. system unplug this. Sometimes double earthing (through the mains lead of your amp AND the mains lead of the MIXER / PA) will cause an 'earth loop' due to a different resistance at each end. Putting a DI box with an 'earth lift' in between may eliminate this problem. Alternatively there are little gadgets you can buy to do this (I found one intended for car audio systems on Amazon that works very well)
  4. Unplug any instrument leads - to eliminate possibilities of interference affecting cables, effects pedals or guitar pick-ups. Also unplug the foot-switch.
  5. If that stops it plug a lead in without a guitar on the other end - does the noise return? If yes change the lead. If no plug the guitar in.
  6. Try moving the guitar in relation to the amp (turn it around 90 or 180 degrees) - this will be pick-up to amp power supply interference.
  7. Does the sound get better or worse if you touch metal parts of the guitar with your hand? This may be a screening issue within the lead or the guitar itself.
  8. Try turning all the individual channel tone and gain controls to zero, turn off any effects on the amp panel. If that eliminates it only turn up the controls on channels that you are actually using.

Sounds like you need to get it intonated. Take it to your local guitar shop tell them your problem and where you'd like your strings to sit or that straight neck of yours won't be like that for long.

When i put a new jack in my s series ibanez. It works for a bit and then fades out.


Check for poor soldering. Also the jack or pots MAY be physically turning and shorting to the black shielding paint that is conductive in the "WELL" with the pots and jack. If you find that a lead is shorting to the paint, put some insulating material OR tighten to prevent rotation that brings the lead into contact with the paint.
