That could be a number of problems, without looking at it its hard to diagnose.
The best solution would be to take it in to a local music store or repair specialist because unless you are a trained professional, working with guitar amplifiers can be dangerous.

Guitar amp had high volume feedback now the sound is different


The short answer is yes. You didn't tell us what make/model/speakers, but if it was really high volume you may hsve blown a speaker. Of course, if you let it get out of hand you can damage your ears.

I have a peavey VIP2 amp.Can I use my acoustic/electric guitar in the electric guitar setting


You can not only play it on electric guitar setting, you can play it LOUD. Its all about what YOU do and what YOU like. Dont accept it when somebody tells you that the music you're playing doesnt sound good to them. ITS YOUR MUSIC !
Do whatever you want. And NO it wont hurt guitar or amp. Rock on or whatever it is you do.

Marshall Amplification Marshall MG2FX Guitar Combo Amp power turns on but no sound


Hi!
At this point, I would just take it to a tech rather than poke around in it. It sounds like the power section is the problem as you have guessed, but without the technical knowledge you'd be shooting in the dark. That particular amp is right on the line of being expensive enough that would be worth repairing, but you might do just as wel to check Ebay for another used one.
Good Luck!

My Marshall MG50 DFX Has an awful buzzing sound that comes out of it after startup.


I would check C22 and C24 the main smoothing capacitors. They can fall out at worst or just have bad solder at best.

Marshall MG100 MG DFX. Full speaker noise with all volume knobs turned to zero and on all settings. When the amp is switched on there is a horrible loud buzz/growl that can only be left on for a split...


well theres only 3 sections of the amp the problem can be in. Pre-amp, Power amp, or speaker. First Unhook the speaker. If you can turn on the amp after that and hear your guitar through the headphone jack this means your pre-amp is ok. at that point you can just take a voltmeter across the 2 terminals of the speaker to see if oyu have 4, 8, or 16 ohms. that'll prove the speakr is good. I'd also try to connect and disconnect the pedal a few times to see if the normals in the jack on the amp are just being stupid. if all this concludes no success, you sir have a power problem.

The active light does not light up when I plug my guitar in and no sound comes out from the talkbox ... But the guitar sound can run through it to an amp where the guitar sound comes out


It sounds like you have NOT connected the power adapter to the box to power it. The guitar sound won't be too loud as you run the hose to your mouth and pick up the sound with a microphone such as a Shure SM57 which then goes to your amplifier. Without the power adapter the internal amplifier will not produce any output.

Loud humm when the drive channel is on


I suspect the power supply has an issue. Most likely bad filter capacitors. This could cause "motorboating" where power is drawn and supply voltage collapses and then recovers repeatedly.

Time for the repair shop. The parts cost should be nominal... labor... well...

For 100 watts it doesn't seem that loud to me. Could I maybe add more speakers (2x10s)?


Our human perception of loudness can be way off. You should get a soundmeter and compare. There are some pretty good ones on eBay new for about $140.

Adding speakers may NOT increase the sound much as the power will then be split between the speakers.

Constant buzzing in my 15 W amplifier


Make sure you have a ground prong on your power cord. Most input jacks nowadays are closed circuit. They have a switch built in that won't allow any sound without the cord plugged in. You may have a damaged jack that will give you a loud hiss, a loud hum or crackling depending on what volume your controls are set at.

Fender M-80 electric Guitar Amp.


You might have a ground problem. Does it do it in different outlets or when you take it to someone else's house? One easy solution to ground problems can be running a three prong to two prong adapter on the power cable. Give that a try and see if it helps.
