Question about Peavey Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Peavey DPC1400x turns on, plays sound for a split second, buzzes, then goes silent. All lights show green though. What could this be?

The fan speeds up when the sound comes through. But it slows back down when it goes silent. Nothing else looks abnormal. Everything appears connected and I don't see or smell anything burnt.

This sounds like a power supply capacitor leaking causing a dc bias problem and amp protection shuts it down.

Hi lespaul 2001

Have you checked your HT fuse. If it fails it will have lights but no sound. Pays to check fuses with a multimeter, as they sometimes look good, but can be dud.

A faulty or intermittent lead speaker box lead will aldo make the head blow fusesCheck the lead to your speaker box also. Dont use a stomp box patch lead. be sure to use a decent speaker lead with quality jacks(switch craft) and at least 16 gauge cable. Ernie Ball make a decent speaker lead for guitar rigs.

If the head keeps blowing fuses, I would suggest that you change you output tubes(4 x 6L6GC). I recommend Electro Harmonix, by Sovtek as a budget conscious option. Get them as a gain matched quartet.

If it does not have a blown fuse at all... then get back to me here and we can do some more tests.


I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.

SOURCE: Peavey TNT115 AMP cuts out

The problem is in amplifier section caused by change value resistor or leak capacitor or cold ,loose or crack solder joint parts this the common problem of over heating and shuts out the amplifier caused by abnormal distribution of current,try to check all the capacitor and resistor and replaced the defected parts ,so your receivers works normal again.

Hope it may help you;

SOURCE: older peavey pa amp i lose sound and have to crank

Could it be the volume control itself? Try spraying it with Servisol Video 40, (see image below) it might be just dust or worn track in the control.

Turns on for 1/2 second and turns off


It sounds like the focus element inside the lens is stuck. This is usually either due to an impact knocking the elements out of alignment, or to sand/debris entering the focus motor's gear drive and preventing it from rotating. The buzzing sound you hear is the focus motor attempting to rotate, but buzzing up against some obstruction. When the lens extends, you hear a buzzing sound, and then the lens retracts - this is usually the cause of the issue. Unfortunately there is not much you can do externally to fix this problem. The camera will need to be taken apart and repaired by a professional or by the manufacturer. David Millier http://advancecamera.com/repair

What is it when a Peavey DPC1400x turns on, plays sound for a split second, makes a buzzing noise, and go us silent


The fan is probably thermally controlled. This is done so that there is no fan noise when the volume is low. Once there is sound coming through, if the output stage heats up enough, the fan is turned on. It sounds like one or more of the output transistors is experiencing thermal runaway. The buzzing sound is most likely due to protection circuitry. You would need a schematic and a voltmeter to check this at the very least. If you are not inclined to perform the repair yourself, I would suggest taking it to a local guitar shop that repairs equipment. The smaller shops might have a tech make an initial assessment on the spot, which is something that the big chains are unlikely to do.

I have a new lg window air conditioner that is buzzing loudly when the compressor turns on. as soon as the compressor shuts off it stops buzzing. the buzzing noise also sounds like a playing card attached...


sounds as though the contactor is not pulling in tightly. but it also spunds as though the fan or fans might be hitting some thing . check them out shut the unit down and spin the fans and see if you hear something. if not then it could well be a contator .. But as I think a bit more could be lose fan, or compressor is not setting on it isloator bushings .

When i turn my ps3 on,red light goes green then red right away


Try disconnecting your PS3 and then for 10 seconds if that doesn't work, disconnect all jackets meaning all usb connection ports connected in it. Remove them, then turn on your ps3 see what happens (without using the controller), then disconnect the ps3 cord that connects to your extension cord or jacket and plug it back in. Try it again. Then again with the controller could try. Try disconnecting other ports such as other stuff like as listed, Irons,Fans, etc.           !!!!!!DON'T USE TOO MUCH POWER!!!!


The Same thing happened to me on my Wii though.



If nothing works call Customer Support (SONY)

Unit makes a loud buzzing sound whenever the unit has power.


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Monitor flashes on and off!


Sounds like you have a bad connection from your monitor to your computer. First check and make sure the connection between them is tight. Does your computer boot up and run though? If your computer is not booting up the monitor will default back to the flashing green power light

1800 XL JVM1860BD - won't work


It sounds like your controller may be failing. Or it could be an electrical line problem. Any other electrical itmes giving you trouble? Has anyone measured the voltage level of your power line? It should be around 110-125 volts AC. If it's significantly lower or higher, you may have a bad connection in your breaker panel or in the wiring leading to the home.
