Amp volume is irregular, jumpy, and produces a muffled tone

As title says,
Amp volume is irregular, jumpy, and produces a muffled tone,
also when emulated line out is pressed or bumped lightly volume fades until pressed again.

Seems very strange to me.

Any help is appreciated

SOunds like the emulated line out is the problem IT may be defective. Is this a button or a knob? It may have dirty contacts and MIGHT be able to be cleaned with electronic contact cleaner.

Marshall MB4410, with low volume gives no real volume,

Guitar amps have preamp sections (think unpowered audio mixer) and power amp sections (Crown rack-mount amp). An excellent way to isolate audio problems if amp is still producing audio is to check the preamp out (line out). Preamp output distorted = preamp failure. Connect MP3 player to "Power Amp In"...sound distorted = power amp failure. In your case the latter is the case as your "line out" is clean. Also test each speaker for clear sound as speaker cone damage from being overpowered is fairly common. At 300w. I'll assume the failure was not from cranking the volume to loud but a shorted speaker or speaker wiring could zap the power amp in an instant.

How can I fix a yamaha clavinova clp-152s that no longer produces a clean sound? The tones sound muffled to some degree.

It could have a capacitor failing in the amplifier section, or primary oscillator section. it might also be a failing output transistor on the amplifier. If the amplifier has gotten noiseir, suspect a faulty transistor.

Sound gets muffled at certain frequencies. Please Help!

I think that rather than the mixer, that your front speakers may have a limiter built into the high frequncey amp. You may be asking them to do more that they are capable of.

Sounds a lot like a poor connection on a PCB connector. A whack on the side may produce a similar result, then you know it is something like this. If so, it will be even a challenge for a tech to pinpoint.

When I listen to my amp with headphones the sound seems to come and go.

I have a 250 gfx, and I have had the same problem intermittently, I have concluded that the digital fx section is to blame, as it is also responsible for the speaker modelling for the line/headphone jack, and I have also had problems with my fx section.
If you have anything in the effects loop that boosts signal volume remove it, a small boost in the loop gives the power amp in these a nice glassy sound, but seems to be (in my case at least) responsible for the failure of the fx/ emulated line out.
Also check all your leads and headphones cord, try some different headphones if you have them.

Fender Hot Rod Deluxe has very little sound, stuck and need help! Turn it on and all of tubes light up. Has a horrible muffled sound with volume at 5. Master volume can be put to any level, and it doesn't...

Just because tubes light up does NOT mean they are good or working... While heaters not lit are an indication of failure, teh reverse is not necessarily true.
Time to troubleshoot this... Plug a set of headphones into teh preamp out. See if audio there is clean... it will be low level using headphones and ONLY from one side as the output is mono and your headphones are stereo usually... If audio is clean here and not muffled, then problem is in power amp section else in the early stages of the unit.

My Casio CTK 4000 has a 12v power going into it, turn it on, everything powers up, but when keys are pressed there is no sound. It shows the keys being pressed, but still produces no sound. Any help...

If you have a headphone jack, try listening with the phones to see if there is sound. Many of the synths have a way to defeat the line outputs and/or onboard speakers. Sometimes the headphone jack disables the speakers...

Not knowing your configuration regarding external amp/speaker makes it difficult to give further help.

Sometimes there is a mute button and of course the volume control.

Do look at the volume control and see if it MIGHT have been damaged as it likely passes the audio directly. The results of the test with headphones though is important!

Volume Sporatically Fades Out

Take it back and have him try it with you there so he can hear what you're hearing. He should cover his work unless its something that went wrong after the repair.
