Guitar amp with popping noise

Hi, I own a "Torque T652GR" 65 watt guitar amplifier. (I can already hear you saying "oh dear") The problem I have with it, is that every now and then it makes a popping sound. Normally just the once and on the rare occasion after the "pop" the volume will drop and then come back up again. Any ideas what could be causing this anyone? Thanks Rob

Yeah ,, the circuit controllong your volume controll.. the popping sound occurs when it just shorts out and when its totally shorted the volume drops and rises..

If you got eletronic experience you can
1.) open it up
2) look for a cracked circuit or broken solder if so re solder it
3.) test the capicators and resistors and transistors for a bad one ( a tran sistor was bad in mine)
4) check the ic for it being bad or loosing connectativity or if its defective...

More than likely it will be a transistor cause if it was any other part it would have not layed at all.. the ic can also cause it..

If you have any eletricial experience or a multimeter to follow the above instructions, take it to a technician..
cheers

The amp does not work at all even though the lights on the amp come on but when i connect it to the guitar no sound whatsoevva i checked the sound nobs on the guitar and the amp n all r ok but no soun


Have you checked a different cable?. Also, when you plug in the unit, there should be a "pop" if everything is turned on. If there isn't, the connection is bad someplace.

I turn my fx off but can still here it and the od sound is lower than the fdx button when i push it in to turn it on


2 things 1: there is no off button for the built in digital effects, you just turn the level down to minimum, the fdx button you speak of is actually fdd (frequency dependant damping) this is supposed to mimic how a tube amp sounds

2: when you press the od switch the amp goes into hi gain mode and will hiss with no input, the point is if you plug a guitar in and play it the volume of the guitar is way above the hiss and you don't hear it

so in conclusion having bought and sold many mg series amplifiers the on you have is perfectly ok

When I use the over drive effect channel the head makes a rapid beeping sound.


Make sure your guitar cannot "hear" the amp as the guitar can be a pretty good microphone to cause feedback. Feedback sometimes saturates an amp and causes "squeging" which is a cycling into and out of feedback.

First check your guitar to amp cord.
The pickup, audio jack, or pickup selection switch may be defective.

I have not played my electric guitar for months now there is no sound coming through the amp, the amp works ok


probably have active pickups on the guitar.
if there's a plate on the back, get a small phillips screwdriver, take the plate off, and put a new 9 volt battery in.

When i plug in the patch cord into the guitar it doesn't work, but when i pull it out alittle it finally plays. ps it keeps popping when the cord it not fully in


This could be caused by a few things. The cable could have a short in it so try it out on a different guitar. If it works the jack on the guitar could have a loose solder joint. This is usually caused by putting stress on the cable and causing the jack to move.
