Question about Marshall 82 WTS LITHIUM BATTERY, 3 LED POWER INDICATOR => Model IDX-E80S Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Marshall jcm dsl 100 head

The amplifier was in storage for a couple of years, following a re-tube by my amp tech.

I plugged in the amp, and it played ok for about half an hour.
It then started making a sound like a bad earth contact.
When I went to switch off the amp, I was surprised with the amount of heat from the proximity of the off/standby swithches.

I took the back off the amp and found a power tube and an effects tube blown.

My amp tech replaced some resistors that had been piggy backed onto three original resistors.

He said that someone had done some work on the head before I even bought it. {I bought it new}

Before I took the head, my tech plugged into a quade box and when he turned on the amp, it immediately blew two power tubes.

My tech said he knew of a guy with the same issue, but he does not know where to go from here.

Can you please assist me with what may be the problem?

Paul Close.

Try to find any diagram from a website.. then print it and give it to your amp tech. so he could Identify what are the wrong, what the first guy did to your amp and its better to buy a whole new tubes. I know your amp tech is very good. I'm just a noob about tubes yet I want to know how this works. hoping for the best for your amp tube.

I got a Marshall MG100HFX Amplifier for guitar. The problem is that whenever i turn treble switch on it gives clean sound as it should, but in couple seconds it fades away. When I turn the switch again it...


I haven't played or worked on a MG100HFX but I understand amp circuits very well. The behavior you are describing sounds to me like a bad capacitor in the Treble circuit. This is a problem that would require the skills of an experienced amp tech. If you are within your warranty period you might want to return it. If not, a good local repair shop should be able to diagnose the problem.

Good luck and keep rockin'!

I have a marshall JCM 900 when I plug in my foot switch and try to play it pops and cracks .I know it's not the foot switch or my guitar.I checked the tubes they look alright so what part is broke in my...


I doubt that you have checked the tubes... tube checker's are rarity now and you can't look at a tube and "tell it is alright". If you leave the footswitch out does it do the same thing?
The probllem could be many things...and you haven't mentioned how you tested the items you are exhonorating. A common problem is a noisy or broken INPUT jack. Musicians forget to loop the guitar cord through the handle and the cord gets moved and yanked sideways wearing the jack and often breaking internal parts. Yjos also goes for the cord to the footswitch as well. Cords and connectors/jacks are the common problems. Less common but frequent are damaged volume control pots due to damage when handling... including broken solder where these attach to the circuit boards.

Marshall DSL 100 - volume fades away and gradually comes back on


IF this is a vacuum tube unit, these symptoms are that of a tube that the heater is intermittent, that is it cools off due to a break and then liights again.

Open the back and observe the heaters in the tubes. DO NOT be fooled by some that have TWO heaters in them. (use a mirror if necessary) A single one that comes and goes can cause the problem and the voiration can make it come and go. This behavior in a tube is NOT somthing readily spotted in a tube checker. The delay in fading and coming back would be the delay in warm up following a heater going out and cooling.

Marshall JCM 2000 dual super lead 50 watt going out on me


Very nice amp!

First off, is the amp getting sufficient power? An unreliable AC current from your wall can affect the performance.

Have you tried the amp with a different speaker? Checked for a loose connection from the amp to the speaker? Is it the correct ohms rating?

Second, are you experienced in electronics? The problem could lie in a faulty solder connection, a bad component, etc.

If you are not confident in opening the amp and troubleshooting it yourself, take it to a audio repairman. Marshall's are some of the easier ones to fix.....

JCM 2000 TSL 601 MARSHALL AMP TURNS ON NO SOUND TUBES DONT LIGHT


If the tubes are not lighting, either the fuse has blown or the power transformer might have an issue.

Be vvery careful as there are lethal voltages present in these.

If the fuse blew, replace it and try just once as there could be other problems and more damage could be done.

Marshall jcm 2000 dsl 100 head not powering cabs 4/8ohm outs


Since you are getting some output, the amp section is probably OK. There are circuits designed to handle thge difference impedence outputs. This should be a relatively simple repair for any shop that handles these units. If you don't have one local to you, let me know and I'll locate the service info and get you more specifics.

I have a marshall 100w JCM 2000, DSL 100 Head, going into a 1960 A 4x12 cabinet. Which inputs and settings should i use on the rear of the amp in order not to damage it


Most 1960 cabs have an option for 8 or 16 ohm... i dont think there is a 4 ohm option. The Jcm 2000 heads have the ability to do all three ohm setting. Thats all you really have to worry about. Make sure the ohms match up. The 1960 cabs typically have 4 t-75 speakers in them which are 75 watts each so wattage is not a problem. There is some argument about what ohms sound best. It doesn't really change that much in the sound in my personal opinion. I run mine at 16 ohms though cause i think it sounds brighter...
