My Marshall 8040 has a sort of static sound. It started a week ago and I noticed that if I press the power cord hard into the amp, the static sound disappears. However, once I let go, the static returns. Can you please help me?

    Thank you for your response! Base on what you said, it's probably the socket. I have 2 power cords and I get the same hum on both of them. Thank you!

Hi,

It sounds as if you need to replace the power cord or the power socket on your amplifier.
If you can get into the cord check to see if the connections are tight do the same on the socket.
I guess you have a faulty connection.

Marshall mg15fx. no sound coming. the only sound i get is buzz when switching the master knob.


I would test by first trying a different guitar cord. If the fault is still there, try jumpering the effects in and out jacks with a patch cord. If there is sound now, clean the two jacks with contact spray and working a 1/4 inch plug in and out of the two jacks.

Where is the fuse located in a marshall ma100 h amp head


The fuse should be located on the back panel near the power cord. However, there are also internal fuses as well....If the amp is vacuum tube you will also have a HT fuse as wall as a power fuse. If it is a solid state unit then it will have a power fuse.. Hope this helps.....If you need more info let me know....

I have a marshall mg100hdfx head. it was working fine and I turned it on it started screaming like feedback at full volume. it does this with all volume at zero and without anything plugged in the inp


This could be many things and unless you are electronically adept it is unlikely you can DIY the repair... HOWEVER I want you to try one thing first: Sometimes the contacts on the switches of the Effects send and return go bad leaving the input to the power amp section floating and it can feedback. To test this, plug an INSTRUMENT cable between the send and return effects jacks on the back. This bypasses the contacts, If the amp behaves, you could run it this way getting a short cable or have the amp worked on at a shop to replace the jack. The jacks are really rather poor quality on musical amps in general.

Low volume on my marshall


I am very new here and don't know how to answer a question to a specific problem so I will write about the most common problems that I have had over the decades doing guitar amp repairs. If you find that your amp is extremely low in volume and then suddenly comes back to normal- check out the effects return [or power amp in] jack. Especially in Marshall amps-these corrode and your signal dies. If there is loud noise such as hissing and crackling with no guitar patch cord in the input jack- the input jack is likely at fault. They normally have switching contacts that ground part of the input circuit when the 1/4 inch male plug is disconnected. When this in is corroded or too weak to make normal contact, you can get these symptoms. If your amp is a solid state Marshall or Fender and there is a random buzzing sound with no guitar signal connected- hit the side of the amp and listen for the buzz to go away or become louder-if it does, this usually means that the connections are loose at the two large filter capacitors. In one or more Marshall amps, they use a filter circuit in the low voltage power supple for the preamp tubes. If you encounter a dead Marshall[the model escapes me now] remove the circuit board and resolder the four connections at the bottom of the bridge rectifier. If you have any other amplifier repair questions you can email me direct at computerlen@hotmail.com.

My Marshall Haze 40 Amp started making a very loud humming noise after a couple hours of playing.I let it cool down,and turned it back on and the noise came back after a few minutes


may be one of the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply has become leaky...this is a common problem among amplifiers...so you let it cool down..then after a period of time the capacitor heats up and then causes the hum...the power supply caps filter out the 60 hertz ac line noise...which is probably the frequency of the sound it is making...this is a good indication of these caps going bad....another thing you can check is to see if the amp is properly grounded(eg: the ground pin on the plug is present) and that you dont have an open cord or input

Check for a dry/cracked solder joint where the 1/4 inch phono input jack connects to the printed circuit board. Solid state Marshalls are renowned for this.

Hiwhat is the best way to connect my DigiTech RP10 to my Marshall MA100H Guitar Amplifier


Read your manuals for both pieces of gear carefully first. You only have one amp so you won't be able to take advantage of all the FX on the Digitech as a lot of them are designed for stereo. The Digitech manual shows guitar into the Digitech and output from the Digitech into input of any guitar amp. Since you have a Marshall and can already get some great sounds by running your guitar straight into the Marshalls input, you would probably be better off using your Digitech in the FX loop. Run a guitar cord out of the send on the loop into the input of the Digitech and a guitar cord out of the left / mono output jack on the Digitech into the effects return jack on the Marshall. Start out with the effects level on the Marshall all the way down. Do the same with the Digitech with both the input and output levels. (Read the manual carefully) I think the choice of the Digitech isn't that great because it is already trying to reproduce a lot of what you can already get with just your Marshall but with a little experimentation and some careful adjustments you should be able to add to the sound of the Marshall. Hope this helps.

JCM 2000 TSL 601 MARSHALL AMP TURNS ON NO SOUND TUBES DONT LIGHT


If the tubes are not lighting, either the fuse has blown or the power transformer might have an issue.

Be vvery careful as there are lethal voltages present in these.

If the fuse blew, replace it and try just once as there could be other problems and more damage could be done.

Hi,I turned on my Marshall mg series 100 dfx and there is no sound,just static comes on.Its starts with a kinda bad feedback sound than turns to loud static.


I suspect the power supply for the effects processor has failed. The effects unit will "go crazy" when power supply is too low voltage.

If the amp has loud noise, then the power amp portion is PROBABLY OK.

I had a similar problem in a Behringer amp caused by a bad electrolytic filter cap.
