Fender frontman 212r

When i turn on my d1 boss distortion pedal and play threw the clean channel the distorion has a static sound with it and when ever on turn the treble up on the amp it brings out this sound, i got my d1 pedal checked out and its working fine, i already tried playing the d1 distortion on the distortion channel and i dont hear the sound im referring to, so i believe it has something to do with the clean channel

Start with everything in the 12 o' clock position. Adjust one thing at a time until it sounds good to you.

You don't say if you are using a footswitch or not... If you are, the switch, cables and connectors are suspect.

If you are NOT using the controller, the switch contacts on the footswitch jack in the 212 are suspect as being intermittent contacts.

If the contact is not making, the OD switch on the unit will NOT work either.

These jacks, and their contacts are JUNK and often cause problems.

Open the unit and increse the tension of the contact springs.

SOURCE: distortion in clean channel in fender frontman 65r

If the IC is MC1436, Pin one is not connected.Pins 2, 3 and 6 are the signal carriers, 6 is out 2 and 3 are inverting and non inverting inputs. CR13 and CR 14 would be simply something on the order of a 1N60 or a !N914 depending on body size,

If it works fine with heat snk screws removed, check to see if they short something out. Also look for small cracks in the board with the screws in place and snug. It also would not hurt to reflow the solder on all component leads and headers that are in the vicinity of the heat sink. Just because they "look" okay, does not mean they may not be faulty. Reflowing eliminates a cold solder joint as a possibility- which by your description is actually the most probable issue. Followed by cracked board and inadvertant short. Esepcially if the heat sink is supposed to be electrically isolated. If it continues, try using nylon mounting hardware for the heat sink, Also when powered up tap each IC, electrolytic capacitor and transistor with a pencil eraser- those that make noise may be the source of the problem. The applied stresses of the screws might deflect the transistor just enough to make a contact intermittent internally in the device..

Hello! I was recently playing and found out then whenever I play specific notes on any of my guitars, my Fender Frontman 212R will buzz. The notes that always buzz are drop C, drop C#, any A note, and...


There is something resonating with that note frquency. Often the grille or wiring inside will rattle at certain frequencies. You need a sustained source of these frequencies to find what is causing the noise.

Will a MP3/iPod/CD player play through a Fender Frontman 65 or 212 "Power In" input jack?


The power amp input jack takes "line level" input BUT is monaural (single channel). The output of an ipod is Stereo. Hence you would have to "mix" the two channels before connecting to the Fender. Mixing does NOT mean just tying the two channels together. A minimu thing would be a passive resistive mixer consisting of a resistor from each of the IPOD channels to the common point going to the input of the Fender. Remember if you plug into the Fender power amp input you DISCONNECT the preamp and other circuits and would ONLY hear the IPOD input.

When i turn on my 212R it turns on in drive channel. if footswith is plugged in, then it turns on in the clean channel, but after switching in drive it is impossible to switch it back in clean channel. What could be wrong? Swith position doesnt change anything and it seems like switch is OK.

I get no sound at all when I plug in to the input and its not my lead or guitar, how can I fix the amp?


This is probably not a DIY repair. You best take it to a repair shop. Likely the power amp has failed or other common problems are broken connectors/jacks, broken volume pots, and finally circuit board cracks.
