If there was no signal going through them, they shoulldn't overheat. However, if while they were on the AC line had a power surge, it's possible it took them out. It's time for the repair shop to see what's up.

Why does amplifier sound die after a short period of use?


There is a heat sensor on the heatsink (to cooling IC / transistor) which decides current / voltage, in case of overheating. This is indeed to secure IC / transistor power of destruction.
The cause of the excessive heat, the impedance mismatch between the amp to the speakers. It is also possible that parts already exist within the amplifier that is almost / half broken, for example, changing the resistor value, electrolytic capacitors are bulging or dried, isolation transformer windings were charred, solder joint cracking etc. Should be checked, before the fatal damage.

Heatsink on the amplifier (the picture is owned Connelectronic):

It does sound to be fried but, you really don't have to replace it with the same exact model, look for an upgrade, I'm sure that manufacture and many others have one better. If it were my guitar, I would definitely think of it as upgrade time. The pickup is probably ok knowing that it can handle heat better due to its location and materials.

I recently bought hartke a100 and it makes a sound quite bigger than normal bass amps does when i switch it on . same thing happens when I swith it off.The sound comes up along with a blue beep on top of...


The amplifier takes a bit of time to come to DC balance and same thing happens as power goes down. Some fancier units will have a relay to disable speaker until balance occurs, but this one does not. As long as the cone centers within a couple seconds it will not cause a long term problem.

Sound dies off gradually for a second or two, then comes back. This happens often. Thanks.


It sounds like there is a thermal problem. If you can't make it happen by shaking, or banging on the amp. If it comes and goes with the shaking and banging then there is some loose connection.
If you still have trouble we here at Pro Line Music have a service department and can repair it.

The output is coming out of the wrong side of the headphones (i.e., suppose to present sounds on left, comes out on right headphone)


You will need to reinstall the drivers

If that doesn't work...you will need software that allows you to invert the sound.


Please rate if this helps!

M-audio av20 right speaker has no sound coming out of it at all...


To troubleshoot the problem start with the bit that is working - the left speaker.
  1. Unplug the input leads on the back of the left speaker and swap them round.
  2. If sound now comes out of right speaker and not the left the problem is with your sound source (computer, IPOD or whatever) or the connecting cable is faulty.
  3. If there is still no sound from the right speaker try turning the volume control knob up and down quickly several times - does this produce any sound from the right speaker? Sometimes the electrical contacts get dirty and this can help clean them.
  4. Turn the speakers off using the volume control knob. Disconnect the speaker wire for the right speaker from the OUTPUT on the left speaker (push the red and black tabs downwards and gently pull the wires out. Find a small 1.5 volt battery (an AA or AAA size will do nicely) and touch the bare ends of the speaker wire briefly on the battery terminals. If you hear a slight crackling sound the wire and the speaker are okay and the problem is in the amplifier, which will need repair or replacement - not a job for an amateur.
  5. If you don't get any sound from the battery test find another piece of speaker wire (any piece of 2 core cable with bare ends will do for testing) and repeat the battery test. If you get sound then replace the speaker wire. If not remove the speaker wire again and go to next step.
  6. Lay the speaker face downwards and carefully unscrew the back panel (don't do this if it is still under manufacturers warranty - take it back for repair or replacement). Lift the back panel off carefully and slowly taking care not to pull the connecting wires inside the cabinet, which will probably be quite short. You may have to settle for just rotating the back panel slightly so that you can see inside if the wires are too short to do otherwise.
  7. Use sticky tape to tightly attach the bare ends of the speaker wires to the terminals of the battery. Touch the loose ends of the speaker wires on the two metal terminals where the internal wires are joined onto the back of the big loudspeaker cone. If this produces a crackling sound it is the internal wiring in the cabinet that needs re-soldering. Otherwise the loudspeaker unit has failed and will need replacement.

Marshall valvestate 8080 1. when i turn the buttons they make a cracking sound 2.when i play on it the sound becomes very quiet


When turning the knobs you might get a crackling noise if the amp is old, The knobs get worn. Either you can replace them or repair them with a tiny squirt of WD40. Check youtube videos for help.

As for the fading sound, That would be your valves ... They need to be replaced ... I suggest taking it to a repair dhop for that because they need to be matched.

All seems working but NO sound coming out of any outs. I've initialized it and did all I can remember to get it up and running after a long rest... in other words, it's been in the cupboard for some...


If I remember correctly it will have a backup battery inside that may have died. You will need to replace it and download the correct patch to get it up and running again.
