Question about Washburn Amplifiers: 25 WATT Guitar Amplifier - Bad Dog - BD25R Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Washburn amp no power

My 20 year old washburn sx20 doesn't come on at all. Which is a bummer because these things don't exist on the net so I can't just go out and snaffle someone else's control unit. What on earth could be the problem?

Hiya, check the obvious first, fuse, power cable, power switch make sure they OK.

If problems not there, then is probably main board power supply/transformer but i'm sure you can find someone in the area with electronic experience (start with the transformer). Nice thing about old gear is that the electronics was always pretty much the same and simple.

Hope that helps

    According to manual there is pre/amp on Pioneer sx 20 what connections do I use to connect graphic equaliser

    Yes, the SX20 includes a preamp including a phono stage. (nice!) There is already equalization in the SX20 available via the bass/treble controls. To hoop up an external graphic equalizer, you should be able to connect it to the 'Recorder' IN/OUT and then select the tape monitor input to hear the equalized signal.

    4 cadillac cts jiggles when it first turns over

    Have to go through the entire engine compartment, and
    all the basics,data etc

    If all you have done for a couple years,is just drive it,
    then who knows

    People say they do this & that at repair shops,but you have
    no way of knowing what was done & never ask

    Probable an easy fix

    I like to know what does work & how well

    If you follow that stratagy, you will find something
    that doesn't

    Try & get a repair shop to do that,I don't think so

    Could be ignition,vacuum leaks,egr,O2,battery going dead

    I will bet anything due to be replaced,due to years & mileage,
    & a check for codes, and some road testing ,will solve things

    I have a 2007 Mercury Monterey with two cluster problems, Radio and Odometer. Should I fix it or does this mean the car is going to have a lot more problems. Should I just get rid of it.

    The vehicle is only 6 years old

    The next one you buy will have issues,
    & so on, the rest of your life, so I don't see
    where your going here

    If you don't care for it or it doesn't fill your
    needs & need something different, that is one thing

    My answer is --- are you all in cash & no debt whatsoever,
    anywhere? No mortgage, nothing & lots of speculative cash
    you can afford to loose? If so buy a different vehicle

    You are going to have more problems with all vehicles you
    will ever own,at least once a year, with todays technology,
    that is a given

    I have a washburn rr 2v and when it is plugged into an amp there is no sound but all the wires are connected in the back and the pickups are still magnetic

    Here are some things to check:
    - Are all volume controls turned up 1/2-way? - Try a different guitar patch cable. - Does your amp have remote switchable inputs? Is your guitar plugged into the *active* channel on the amp? - Is the amp turned on?

    I don't believe the SX20 can be set up for these additional numbers. The SX20 has been unsupported for over 20 years. Most vendors have stopped help on them. You really should get a new system.
