Question about Amplifiers & Preamps
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..
