The hum is usually electrical mains hum at 50hz, i wouldn't recommend messing about with the insides of amps!

Peavey solo series SPECIAL 112 ; Loud him , intermittently


Most of the time amplifier hum is caused by the outlet that it's plugged into, maybe no ground or there's other appliances on the same circuit causing interference? And sometimes it's as simple as a little internal feedback, certain C notes on the Guitar cause distortion with tube amps, the best fix is a $100 power conditioner like made by Monster cables or others.... hope this helps?

Numerous possible issues with your description. I would start with the tubes, and check if not one or more has faulted.

My amp makes a loud foghorn type noise whenever turned on. Even if i have the volume turned all the way down and the guitar unplugged it still hums. I'm not sure if its an amp or speaker prolem. I took...


Likelly the TDA7293 chip in the power amp has failed. It shorts to one power rail and drags the power down where it hums... this CAN damage the speaker if left on. Verify the problem and replace the chip. Slight chance there are bad electrolytic filter caps but those are easily spotted.

When I turn on the amp, I get a loud hum. plugging into the jack doesn't change anything. turning the dials doesn't change anything. when I turn off the amp it makes a loud crack.


i) Disconnect one lead of loudspeaker & insert an open-ended guitar cable into headphone socket.

ii) Put a dc voltmeter across open end jack then turn Frontman ON for a few seconds.

iii) The reading should be about 0volts - if the voltage is high (27v), then it is likely that the PA chip TDA1514A has blown.

iv) If,however, the voltage is correct in iii) , then reconnect speaker & put guitar cable into the POWER AMP IN socket & connect other end to guitar...Turn on briefly, if there is still hum then fault is in the output stages & will require chassis removal to solve.

Peavey 115 Low hum Low volume from input


The preamp section has a problem. It could be anything in the preamp but is OFTEN the input jack itself. They take a lot of abuse.

Also the insert jack contacts that forward the preamp to the power amp if no external FX are used can go bad.

Additional things are circuit board cracks caused by rough handling and also controls that have had the knobs mashed in which can destroy the potentiometers they are connected to.

Hi, Peavey Classic Guitar amp , Has NO SOUND


Hi Mike,

If you switch on the amplifier, do you hear nothing at all?
Or do you hear low level noise or hum out of the speaker?
Don't know if you're technician.
If the tubes are glowing, you can measure the high voltage.
Check also fuse 3 and 4, thats the neg. voltage -27V and -14V.


regards,
Gerard

A peavey special 130 guitar amp with excessive hum


I used to have one of these years ago!

What do you mean when you say 'switch to the off position'? Do you mean it hums when switched off?

Because the sound does not fully follow volume, it is likely a bad connection or power filter capacitor is not working.

Either way, it means a trip to a repair shop. There is nothing in there you can fix unless you are a repairman. Your local music shop should be able to coordinate a repair.

If this amplifier is like the 1983 version I had, its built like a tank and the fix should be easy.

Hope this helps!

PEAVEY TRANSTUBE AUDITION 110. PLUG UNIT IN POWERS UP . SITS THERE AND HUMS LOUDLY. SPEAKER WORKS. plug guitar in can hear it faintly, push lead chanel button in , hum gets super loud. HUM IS IN PROPORTION...


There should be an 8 pin IC close to the input jack that will be marked 4558 or 4560. This is an Op-amp Ic that is the most likely cause of the problem. Replace that IC and report the results here.
