Does the jack have any wires connected to it? Can you tell where the disconnected wires originate? Typically, the wire from the middle ear of the volume pot should go to the tip of the jack, and the wire from the back of the tone pot goes to the sleeve of the output jack. You will get no output if either of these wires are disconnected. Also, the next question is "why" did they come loose? That's usually because one of the pots is not tightened down, and is allowed to spin when the volume or tone knob is turned, breaking the wire's contact. Pull the knob off the pot, and tighten the nut down so the pot can't turn. This will assure you won't have the same problem again.

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

Static at louder volumes


All you need to confirm is to remove the connection to the guitar, remove the jack and cord to the guitar and now check if the noise is prevalent at higher volume, when the volume control is turned up. If so the fault is with the cord , the jack or the gutiar pick up insulation or internal connection or shielding.
Cross check with a seperate cord or another amplifier to confirm the case.
If the noise is from within the amplifier then it is possible there is fault in the preamplifier, fault with shielding of the inputs or the preamp, broken groung connection.

How do I fix the plastic jack inside the speaker? It seems loose, yet it connects fine, but still doesn't work. The wiring is fine.


Open the speaker and either secure the jack or replace it if it is broken... common problem when cables get tripped over.

Guitar cable was under the amp, i picked up the guitar and it pulled the jack. it picks up static but not sound


The cable has a broken wire. If it's the type cable which allows unscrewing the jack, take it apart and look for a loose / broken connection. Repair would be to solder it back. If the jacks on the cord are the molded type, the most practical solution is to replace it.

This sounds like either a bad guitar cable or a bad jack in the guitar. Possibly your friend is not as qualified to find these intermittent problems as needed? These jacks are really junky and often have riveting of the barrel come undone... especially if the retaining nut is overtightened. The LONG barrel like jacks are notorious for failing. You have all the information you need to solve this problem. First try a different guitar cable... (often they are broken or intermittent at the end where they flex). If that doesn't fix it, replace the jack in the guitar. Also verify that the conductive coating paint within the guitar is grounded. Sometimes the contact to it is destroyed when the volume control shafts or jacks become loose and they depend upon the shaft barrel to ground the paint.

Bad soldering, especially around the jacks and plugs. Crack in the circuit board. Bad switch contacts on the headphone jack... all these are first things to check.

The first thing i would do is not leave it on in this way for too long. You could blow out a very expensive Transformer if its a faulty speaker. The worst thing you could do to a TUBE amp is run it without a speaker . I would test the speaker first. Just remove the wires going to it. And connect the speaker to either a car stereo or house system at low volume very low. And see what you get. if it works ? Good! Now check your guitar chord/wire. Try different ones try different guitars. If that doesn't work . Look into the input jack on the instrument input hack on the amp.. They do come loose off the board.Either get a new input jack or resolder the old one. if you only have one guitar look at the guitar output jack. Loose wiring on the guitar could cause this also. Dirty In and out put jacks could cause this. A pencil with Very fine sand paper wrapped around it will clean a dirty input/output jack. Try these things. Just remember poking around your amp is Dangerous. The electrical components hold a charge even unplugged that can kill you. No joke..

Yeah, sounds like a bad connection. If you are handy, you can take the jack out yourself and determine if it is a loose wire or solder connection. If everything looks fine then you should squeeze the connections togather inside the jack itself. Sometimes it just gets pushed apart and does not hit around the male end secure enough.
