The problem here is likely with the reulators on the power supply. Overheating is causing failure. Replace +15 and -15volt regulators as required

Secondary problem may be with the AMP IC itself. Check to make sure it is not overheating during operation by using a temperature probe. Check to make sure airflow is constant.

Do not electrocute yourself and/or fry the amp any worse than it is.

Jb leon515 one speaker cutting out after about 1 hour


It's probably a thermal problem with a component. You should take it into a repair shop as it is not user serviceable.

Only just bought amp ,but twice now its just cut out,lost sound ,if i switch off wait a minute it ciomes back on cannot be normal surely? rgds neil


Not normal... however verify your guitar cable and guitar to avoid embarassment if the problem might be with those items. ALSO if you are driving this too hard, it probably has thermal shutdown and will shut down the power amp if the circuits get too hot... This is a smaller amp so If you are playing louder than *********** could stand it in a 15 foot square room, you are overdriving this unit and you best get a bigger one.

It MIGHT be overheating due to buildup. Read in users manual how to clean the machine of deposits. The deposits allow the temp to go too high and initiate a shutdown.

I bought my g-dec jr form ebay last summer and really like this little amp but this past winter I went to use it, it worked for 3 to 5 min and shut down, but the power light just blinked moderately. I...


This amp uses a TDA2050 chip that has thermal protection. It is also a small amp that is NOT capable of high sound levels. If *********** can't stand to be within 5 feet of this amp you are playing TOO LOUD for this amp and it will shut down until cooled off to protect the amplifier chip. This amp is intended for practice. It would be adequate for sensible listening level in a 10 foot by 10 foot room. If you need more sound you will have to get a bigger amp. I would suggest you get a sound meter and verify the sound level. DO NOT exceed 4 hours at 90 DB... I know a lot of deaf musicians that have lost their hearing and they are not much good anymore.

Sounds like you have a problem in the amplifier section. Could be a bad capacitor or a floating ground. As a charge builds it will create the hiss and when it discharges, it surges through the amp causing it to shut down. You'll probably want to send them in for service.

My peavey escort 2000 system starts up works and runs for about 10 to 15 minutes then shuts down and and green light flashes system restarts then shuts down continuously


If after you shut it down and after a while turn it on again and it works the same way. It sounds like a heat problem. We here at Pro Line Music are a Peavey service center. If you can not get any local help you can send it to us.

Chances are one of the power amps has shorted. Replacing the fuse probably fried additional components. Unless you are electronically adept this is NOT a DIY repair.

Expect that this is going to be an expensive repair as often quite a few transistors and other components fry when one goes in these power amps.

This is a tiny amp good for practice at low volume levels. You are likely overdriving it and the power amp chip goes into thermal protect. If you volume level is much louder than a small boom box, you are driving it too hard. Best to get a bigger amp.

Likely a failure of one of the amps and now more... You should have shut it down when it started making noises. This is NOT a DIY repair. Take it to a competent repair shop for service.

I would be playing with my amp and after about 30 min there will be a a lot of crackling and then the amp shuts off


You are driving the amp too hard and the thermal protection in the amp chip is cutting out.

Either reduce the volume on this small amp or get a larger unit.

The heat sinks for the amp chip will overheat if you drive it hard and that takes a bit of time to happen, hence the 30 minute delay.
