If the fuse has blown DO NOT replace without repairing the cause!!! You will do more damage.

This is likely a power supply issue so have it serviced if you are not electronically skilled.

Why does my lowrey organ not make a sound after I have switched it on?


This is a generic answer for this kind of question.
When there is no sound
Check the obvious.
Is there a light on the organ indicating it is on?
  • Plug it in to a known working wall socket, switch on at the wall
  • Switch on at the organ, check light
  • Very old keyboards need a voice to be selected!!
  • Turn master volume up
  • Turn any other volumes up
  • i.e. lower manual volume
  • upper manual volume
  • swell pedals down
Sometimes a sustain pedal plugged into a volume pedal socket will mute the output, check this.
Headphones out, most headphones will turn speakers off, sometimes the headphone switch can be dodgy, work the headphone plug in an out a few times
There maybe a switch that turns off the speakers, look near the output sockets
Software volumes up, check display, if any.
MIDI instruments, check local control is ON
Still no sound?
Can you hear anything from the speakers?
Hiss or hum usually means the speaker is ok
Total silence may indicate speaker failure, but only if there is one speaker, as in older home organs, or smaller keyboards
Try headphones next, TURN Down master volume first just in case!
If there is some sound, very quiet and gross distortion then possible power amplifier failure.
If your instrument has any kind of line out as well as a headphone jack, try these.
The line output will likely be a pair of phono sockets,like you have on HiFi equipment, 1/4 inch, 6.35mm jacks, like the bigger headphone connector, a 3.5mm socket like the smaller headphone connector, or even a DIN connector on older equipment.
Connect these to the aux (or Line or CD) input on your HiFi, guitar amp or similar. (some times these outputs will drive headphones, usually you will only hear anything in the left side). If this works then it is very likely the power amplifier.
Further tests on MIDI equipped keyboards would be to see if the MIDI does anything.
If MIDI out works and there is no sound, and MIDI in makes a sound this points to local being off, buried somewhere in the menu will be local on or off, make sure it is on.
If MIDI out doesn't work then the failure is likely to be internal power supply or something else critical (not nnecessarily major).
Power amplifier failures in newer, low power, keyboards are often the power amplifier chips (i.c,s), older amplifiers may have just blown their fuses but one or more output transistors may have failed.
Cost of repair will be down to the time it takes to get to the fault, taking these to bits and putting them back can take a lot longer than the repair.!
Hope this helps, Chris the Fader

No sound whatsoever.


You have a blown speaker. Try plugging in a cab or connect another speaker of any kind to to see if you hear anything at all real low. Speakers blow in 2 different ways, they can either overheat, warping the voicecoil and end up sounding like a tin can or overheat and burn out completely, severing the voicecoil, leaving no sound at all, dead silence.

Hi there.You may have a blown fuse.Unplug the amp then undo the screws that hold it all together.Remove the wires off the speaker and put an AA battery across the speaker connections(of the speaker).You will hear a clicking sound if the speaker is ok.If not then the speaker is blown.This could also damage the circuitry.Check the fuse(s) and replace with exactly the same rating.Assemble and test if still no go then the circuitry is faulty.You could then take it to a repair shop and ask for a quote to repair it.
It might be cheaper to buy a new unit.

The speaker connected to my Yamaha EMX 312 SC is not bringing out any sound when we use the microphones but the displays on the power mix shows there is activity.


Assuming that you have checked the speaker leads for broken connections and that you know the speakers themselves work okay (test with a different amp) and that you can hear sound on the headphone socket
  1. Check that you actually have the power amp switch in the right position for the outputs (monitor jacks or main neutrik/speakon sockets) that you are using (see page 25 of the manual)
  2. That your speakers are connected to the speaker outlets on the rear panel and not the 'main outputs' on the front panel, which are for use with a separate power amplifier
  3. Check the mute button is not in
  4. You have turned both the master volume controls up.
If none of the above solves the problem it is likely that the overload protection fuses on the amplifier output stage have blown and need replacing - take to a repairer

When i power up my line 6 spider 3 ( i think it has two 75 watt speakers) all the lights work but no sound at all no static or speaker sound even at full volume. cable checks out, but even with a bad cable...


A pilot light means almost nothing other than the power cord is plugged in and hot and the switch is on. In this case, other lights run from various DC supplies so the inout fuse is presumed to be good... NEVER replace a fuse without knowing what caused it to blow or you will usually do more damage within a unit. There are several power supplies and you will typiclly find +/-15 volts on the op amps and 3.3 volts on the processor logic. Unless something simple like the speaker cable falling off this will NOT be a DIY repair. I would look to see if this speaker cable might have fallen off and ALSO check if you get any sound using headphones.

No sound from Yamaha Electone HS-6


First check if you get sound from the headphone jack.

Do you hear anything as the power comes on from the speakers..? A slight bump?

A lot of these dead audio things can be traced to a failure at the expression pedal. often these use a light dependent resistor and the illuminating lamp burns out. This is all down by the pedal.

Many of the Yamaha organs, including the FX20 I have, have circuitry that checks that the power amp has DC balance before a relay closes to connect the speaker. A failure in the amp can cause dead sound as well.

NO sound through the AMP even though the power light comes on


Not a fuse. First thing, to check your speaker (amp unplugged, of course), touch the + and - speaker connections to a 9V battery. If you don't hear a pop sound then your speaker is blown. Thus, no output sound. If speaker is OK, then the output IC is your problem.

I have a 20 watt peavey micro bass, and what happened was my brother knocked it over and will not turn on. I checked the fuse and it was ok, any help you would be great.


When it was knocked over it may have cracked the main circuit board, but does the pilot light come on at all? If the pilot light comes on but no sound is output from the speaker try plugging some headphones into the head phone jack and then turn it on and see if you can hear sound in the headphones. I have had a similar problem before and the main speaker had gone bad but it would still play thru the head phone jack.
