Not good. If you have electronics experience, you can replace the power amp IC to fix it.

My crate amp makes a static sound when i turn controls and the cord input port makes noise when moving it around


Most likely a loose connection. Try to tighten the knobs and the cord port to the crate. You need to do this from the inside. These tend to loosen with use and anything that is connected with them will also loosen, like the electrical connections. Good luck!

How do I fix my crate b80xl


Without hearing it in action, it's hard to pinpoint a problem. It could be as simple as a dirty jack, or it could be components overheating, or something else entirly. I'd take it to the repair shop.

Drum machine working ok then suddenly cut out, disconnected power supply then an acrid smell of burning came from the machine.


In my case, a -15 volt trace runs under the 1/4 inch connectors and right at the edge of the circuit board. I think slight movement of the connector wears that trace out and in my case it caused it to short to a nearby trace. I ran a 30 guage wire in its place to fix it.

Crate Flexwave 120h (Half Stack) volume issues


Perhaps you have a bad capacitor on your volume control?

You can get an ESR meter and test your exposed isolation caps for leakage? The have to be removed so unplug the unit if you are gonna do any work inside the cabinet.

Also, try a shorter or higher quality guitar cable. This will cut impedance between the pickups and the amp.

Good luck and be careful!

I have a Crate GT 15, not getting anything to the speaker when I plug in.


Do you have electronics experience? Inspect the amp for broken or cold solder joints and any burned components. Check to see if the fuse blew and that the output IC's or transistors (not sure what Crate used in these) are not bad. Check your speaker wire as well.

The effects do not work on my Crate VTX 350 H, what's wrong with it?


Are you getting sufficient power to the amp?

Could be a loose connection inside the amp (such as a wire), a bad component, or a severed ground. Many possibilities here. If you know electronics, take a multimeter and start testing all the components. Look for any burn marks, check for broken solder connections, and continuity test all wires. Be careful since amps can hold a deadly voltage for a good while. Be sure to drain the capacitors before doing anything else inside it. If you do not feel comfortable doing this, you can take it to a electronics repair person. Keep in mind that Crate is one of the harder amps to fix because most of their components are surface mount.

I have a crate PA 8 and it makes a crackling noise when I play through it. I hooked the speakers to my other amp and they sound good, I hooked the PA to my marshall cab and it still has the noise, so I...


Hi

The problem is with the amplifier itself. Crackling is usually capacitor related and you will need to have the amp checked over to properly identify the cause.

Some amps are also prone to pick up static from other electrical items which can also cause these problems. I had a crackling issue with an old Crate amp of mine which turned out it was due to being too near a computer/monitor so it is worth eliminating these things as a possible cause before having the amp checked.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

Crate amp blew a house fuse and stopped working. pilot light still works and I can get a distorted signal through the headphones if I play a guitar very loudly through it.


When a piece of equipment causes a fuse to blow or a breaker to trip, it normally means something in the equipment's circuit was shorted. Either because of heat, moisture, a loose screw, loose wire, loose part, a bug, etc. For safety reasons, don't plug it back in and take it to a repair shop.

Hope this helps!

Crate bv120.no power or sound..no lights..f6 fuse has 160 ohms...


did you change out the fuse? could be a tranny going south. if you change the fuse and you still get no power, then you have a fried power transformer. they are relatively easy to replace. look on ebay . get the numbers off of the existing one and start web searching. something will come up. if not email me on my contacts tab in my website yostamplifier.com we can troubleshoot. you should see the custom blue voodoo i built and gave to my little brother.
