Are they hi gained presets (distortion)? if so, that woulld be typical of mast amps, However, polarity of the ground can amplify that white noise. most amps have a polarity switchfor ground on the back. if not you may be plugging into an older socket which doesnt have good ground. it can be resolved at the service panel. thats a whole different procedure. let me know

Pa800 no sound

I'm not sure, but I believe this has a small sound card inside like in a pc and later model guitar amps. This card runs reverb and things like that and it also may have a small power plug going to it. I have found on many guitar amps that when this plug gets dirty, or possibly just a weak connection, they usually create static noises and then it echoes that noise. I hope this helps you.

My amp makes this static noise wich goes off as soon as i touch one of the strings or the metal part of the guitar cable. What can i do to make the noise disapear

This is a common problem... Make sure your amp is plugged into a three wire grounded receptacle. Keep the guitar away from magnetic fields of transformers in amps and effects units. Make sure you have a high quality guitar cable.

Marshall mg100hdfx head. I get no sound whatsoever plugged into the guitar input but the controls seem to work as I can hear changes in the light ambient static. I will get sound however if I plug directly...

You MAY have a broken input jack. If you can hear changes from the overdrive gain control, that control is just one stage away from the input jack. Also there is a capacitor C60 that is for RF bypassing and if that shorts that will kill the audio. Yes, inout jacks get destroyed by tripping over guitar cables... that is why you run the cord through the amp handle before plugging it in. Of course verify your guitar and cable is good using another amp.

Fender blues deluxe reissue is making a popping sound

Try tapping the tubes (especially the small ones) lightly with a regular wood pencil and see if you can detect noise. Also verify your guitar AND cable are not the source of the noise by using them on another amp. Verify that popping exists witout guitar cable being plugged in.

Also this is the season for static electricity. Shuffling shoes on rug may create pops due to discharges. Spray rug with Staticide if this is the case.

I have the esp ltd f-200 with the floyde rose tremlo and i get nothing but static when i plug in changed the batterey for the emg 81's any idea's what this could be ?

First verify the amp AND the cable is good with another guitar. Assuming they are, I would suspect you have a broken wire in the electronics of the guitar. Some of the guitars have a circuit board and that might have gotten a crack. Please do verify your amp first and the cable as these are other common problems.

Crate TX50 DB has noisy DSP circuit when rotating the DSP pot!

When you are changing the DSP effect on the fly, static or noise is NORMAL !!! The DSP is changing the data and having to recalculate on the fly and doesn't mute itself while doing so which results in "garbage sounds out".

The bypass setting should NOT get any tone UNLESS you have feedback going on. If your guitar can "hear" the speakers in the amp, the strings can vibrate and get feedback going.

Unplug the guitar and see if high freq tone is still there on bypass. If the tone is in the musical range, then there is a problem if nothing is plugged in. If it is a VERY weak, very high frequency tone, this may be the digitizing noise from the DSP. On bypass, the audio is likely to still go through the DSP, just not be modified by it.

A 700 series Line 6 Variax,noisy hiss

The hissing is caused by a bad connection, most likely at the cable jack. Try replacing it and while you're doing that check the rest of the components - especially the potentiometers, used ones generate a lot of static.

When i shake the guitar i hear static sound thru amp. sounds like a bad ground. how do you remove switch, jack and pots to check connections?

LIKELY this is a TYPICAL poor connection at the jack. It is not uncommon to have slight noise IF the plug moves as you shake it.

AS A test, restrain the plug so it can't move.

Another source is a FAILING instrument cable. Get ones with GOLD plated ends as they are less prone to oxidation.

ONLY open the guitar after you have exonerated the cable. The jacks do wear, but more commponly the cable is at fault. The connections inside are USUALLY solid and NOT a problem.

If you can access the jack, you could increase the spring tension.

First though, see if moving the plug where it plugs in creates noise.

Static Noise from guitar amp.

I take it you have made sure that both the cable to the distortion box from the guitar and the cable to the amp are both good. From the description you give, it sounds like there is no signal getting to the pedal. If the cable is good, then the next likely suspect would be the input jack on the fuzz box. Try wiggling it a little with the guitar cable in place to see if it is loose. Some input jacks are unbelievably cheap and flimsy. A crackling sound (static like) is almost always a bad connection. If it was the output jack, I would think that the guitar signal would come through a least a little bit, but you might want to try wiggling that one, too, if the input jack isn't the culprit.

Another possibility to check is the battery, but this doesn't seem as likely. Some effects units devour batteries, especially units that use 9V batteries. I have a multi effect pedal that kills a 9V in about an hour.

Getting Static noise when plugged in to amp

This is a very common problem that I have repaired for many friends. Sometimes the guitar jack becomes loose and gets rotated to the point where the wire breaks and/or touches the cord plug when it's inserted into the jack. You need to remove the access plate/panel at the back of the guitar body and see if the wire is broke or twisted. You may only have to loosen the jack retaining nut and rotate the jack to get the twist out or you may have to remove the jack and resolder the wire back in place. If its broke make sure to solder back on the proper terminal--the one with solder already on it and not the one that the cord plug touches when its inserted. Retighten the jack nut by firmly holding the jack from access side so it doesn't rotate again and cause that undesirable STATIC sound. Hope this helps.
