Jack on guitar looks like a wire broke off. One blue wire still connected. No loose wires floating around! Should there be 2 wires connected to the jack itself? Which two?

There should be two wires connected. One goes to the jack tip while the other goes to ground. One lug on the jack is connected to the part touching the sleeve on your cable while the other will contact you cable's tip. There is another wire in there somewhere.

Why is my Fender Blues Deluxe Amp making a crackling sound without an instrument even plugged into it and when I do plug in, it quiets when I touch any place on the guitar?


You probably need a new input jack on the amplifier. When they get loose the connecting wires can crackle, but plugging a guitar in stabilizes them (no more crackle).

How do I replace cord jack on a Peavey bass guitar?


You'll need needle nose pliers, small phillips head screwdriver, soldering iron, electronics-grade solder, socket screwdriver or 1/4" wrench, black electrical tape. Purchase necessary replacement jack. Remove plastic electronics cover plate, located on the back of the body, behind control knobs. This will expose the electronics cavity. Locate existing jack and its wire connections inside the exposed cavity. Remove any electrical tape covering the jack connections. Using a hot soldering iron, touch each of the two soldered input jack connections, one at a time, just until the soldered connection melts. Then, disconnect the associated wires (taking note of which wire connects where!). Once disconnected, loosen and remove the nut on the outer part of the jack that holds it onto the guitar body. Remove the old jack. Insert the new jack (with the nut removed) into the existing hole, from inside the electronics cavity and tighten it in place, on the outside of the guitar body, with the nut. Re-attach the wires to the new jack, by using needle nose pliers to wrap them tightly around the correct posts. Touch the hot soldering iron to each post and apply a small amount of solder to the post as it's being heated. Once the molten solder runs over the connection and looks shiny, remove the tip of the soldering gun. This process takes only 2 to 3 seconds. Let the connections cool for a few seconds. To insulate, wrap connections with black electrical tape. Replace cover plate.

Guitar cable was under the amp, i picked up the guitar and it pulled the jack. it picks up static but not sound


The cable has a broken wire. If it's the type cable which allows unscrewing the jack, take it apart and look for a loose / broken connection. Repair would be to solder it back. If the jacks on the cord are the molded type, the most practical solution is to replace it.

The first thing i would do is not leave it on in this way for too long. You could blow out a very expensive Transformer if its a faulty speaker. The worst thing you could do to a TUBE amp is run it without a speaker . I would test the speaker first. Just remove the wires going to it. And connect the speaker to either a car stereo or house system at low volume very low. And see what you get. if it works ? Good! Now check your guitar chord/wire. Try different ones try different guitars. If that doesn't work . Look into the input jack on the instrument input hack on the amp.. They do come loose off the board.Either get a new input jack or resolder the old one. if you only have one guitar look at the guitar output jack. Loose wiring on the guitar could cause this also. Dirty In and out put jacks could cause this. A pencil with Very fine sand paper wrapped around it will clean a dirty input/output jack. Try these things. Just remember poking around your amp is Dangerous. The electrical components hold a charge even unplugged that can kill you. No joke..

Yeah, sounds like a bad connection. If you are handy, you can take the jack out yourself and determine if it is a loose wire or solder connection. If everything looks fine then you should squeeze the connections togather inside the jack itself. Sometimes it just gets pushed apart and does not hit around the male end secure enough.

If the noise is a pop or click, that's normal. Any other sound could be caused by too long a cord, which will produce noise while on the floor.

If it's not the cord, then you most likely have something wrong with the wiring inside the guitar. Have a luthier (guitar builder and technician) look at it, and s/he should be able to fix the problem.


Hope that helps!

Black cables loose


Does the jack have any wires connected to it? Can you tell where the disconnected wires originate? Typically, the wire from the middle ear of the volume pot should go to the tip of the jack, and the wire from the back of the tone pot goes to the sleeve of the output jack. You will get no output if either of these wires are disconnected. Also, the next question is "why" did they come loose? That's usually because one of the pots is not tightened down, and is allowed to spin when the volume or tone knob is turned, breaking the wire's contact. Pull the knob off the pot, and tighten the nut down so the pot can't turn. This will assure you won't have the same problem again.

It sounds like the grounding/earth wire is off the output socket as you already seem to believe yourself. Depending on the model either take off the back control cover panel or the scratchplate/pickguard and look for a loose wire running from the back of one of the pot cases and connect this back onto the screen connection of the jack socket.

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.
