Is the amp workin. Try a mic or something. Look at your cable and unscrew the connector if possible to check if it's ok

    There must be a disconnected wire inside the guitar. You can take off the control plate in the back and look at the wires. If the input connector is loose start there.

Hello! I was recently playing and found out then whenever I play specific notes on any of my guitars, my Fender Frontman 212R will buzz. The notes that always buzz are drop C, drop C#, any A note, and...


There is something resonating with that note frquency. Often the grille or wiring inside will rattle at certain frequencies. You need a sustained source of these frequencies to find what is causing the noise.

I have a Yamaha GE 112c2 guitar. One day I was playing, and the sound suddenly cut off. The guitar was plugged in, the amp was on, and the volume was on high. I can't find a wiring diagram, or anything...


Sounds like the amp (or speaker) blew. Do you have anything else you can plug into the amp to test? If possible use a different cord to preclude that as a cause, too.

Hello! I've bought a Fender Rumble 75 about 3 months ago and it sounded great really but after some loud playing (About 75% of max volume) it started to buzz at midrange notes, and its gets worse as time...


Try plugging another sound source into the unit. The buzz MAY be pickup of magnetic fields in your guitar pickup that clobber your notes from the strings. Bad guitar cables are another possibility. By putting clean music from say a CD player into the unit you can find where the source is. If the CD player generates the same noises, then likely you have a failure of filter caps in the amp or other component failures. Also make sure your guitar can't "hear" the amp as feedback can do strange things.

I have a Marshall MG100DFX. I turned my amp on a few days ago and I heard this loud sound (not the standard hum/buzz that you hear when you plug a guitar into an amp; it sounded more like a foghorn). Now,...


I would try hitting the side of the amp before turning it on. There may be a loose piece of solder or other conductive particle stuck somewhere. Bang the cabinet rather hard with your fist. If that doesn't help it might be a loose solder connection at a resistor or capacitor but a tech should check that out.

I plug my input in and my guitar wont play on the amp unless i wiggle the cord and unplug it and plug it back in a million times


The input jack is likely broken... a COMMON problem.

To avoid this in the future, loop your guitar cable through the handle so when cord is yanked it doesn't break the jack by yanking it sideways.

No sound


You would NOT use a stereo cable to plug in your guitar.

The stereo cable would carry the battery voltage back to the amp and MAYBE cause the fuse to blow.

You use a MONO instrument cable for your guitar.

The ring connection is use to complete the circuit to turn on the battery in most guitars.

Replace the fuse ONCE and get the proper instrument cable (NOT consumer audio cable) for your guitar.

If fuse blows again, take amp to shop for service.

Have a guitar and can't find any info/history on it. Serial # QNX0160Rhttp://www.fixya.com/images/misc/checkbox_unchecked.gif


Try to open the back part of the guitar. The plastic plate covering and try to read and note down the types and serial numbers of the potentiometer, pick-up model, or anything that is noted inside.

Electric Guitar wont play through Amp


the buzzing is indicative of an open ground connection, check the cord by substitution or with an ohm meter, if the cord is good look at the connections to the jack inside the amp ( im guessing you built the amp from a kit). Is this a solid state amplifier? Tube amps have lethal votages and should not be experimented on without knowledge of electronic safety. Also if there is more than one input to the amp try plugging the guitar into another one and see if its still the same.
