It appears that your keyboard has slider for volume control. This is likely a stereo control with two wipers. If one wiper has worn that would cause the problem.

One could sray a TINY bit of CRC226 available at Home Depot in the electrical department into the volume pot and see if it can be restored... USUALLY if these total go dead on a channel they will NOT restore.

If that doesn't work, take it in for repair.

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

Why do I get no sound from either speakers or headphone jack?


Check that the local control is ON

It is set via the function switch

Have a Yamaha Electone 405-IOrgan that only has sound when headphones are connected. Is this an easy fix?


<Do you mean it only has sound out of the headphones when connected and not out of the speakers when the headphones are disconnected? If so, your problem may be as simple as a dirty contact in the headphone jack.

My Yamaha keyboard stopped playing but will play with the headphones what is wrong


possibly the headphone socket has dry joints or is faulty.
the headphone output comes directly from the main audio ic on most systems through 2 resistors to limit the current and prevent blowing them.

I'd suspect power supply first - filter capacitors may have leaked/dried out. That would be an easy fix for someone familiar.

My amp isn't producing any sound. It works when headphones are in but that's it. Please help


The headphones socket is on the preamp stage - it works so the problem must be after the pre-amp.
Do you get any sound at all from the speakers (hiss or perhaps a click) when you turn it on?
If yes it is an amplifier problem.
Here are some possible causes
  • A wire has come off the loudspeaker - easy to fix
  • Speaker protection fuse has blown - small glass fuse mounted on main amplifier chassis - replace with correct rated and type of fuse (note some of these are 'slow' blow type - important that you get the right one)
  • faulty component in the main amplifier stage - requires attention from qualified repairer
  • Loudspeaker burnt out - this can be tested by connecting another speaker across the terminals of the built in speaker.
  • The headphone jack socket automatically disconnects the loudspeaker when phones are plugged in - it could be that the contact in the headphone jack socket is bent and not re-making contact when the headphones are unplugged.

No sound


There can be any number of reasons for this problem - solve it diagnostically by starting with something that you know is working and work through systematically to the other end.
  1. Test a microphone on a separate amp to make sure it works okay. Check amp and speakers working. Check that all output cables from mixer to amp are working by testing separately.
  2. Plug microphone into a channel on mixer. Also plug in headphones and turn headphone volume control up.
  3. Make sure input sensitivity knob is turned up a bit (say half way) and main output faders (yellow) are up.
  4. Check that channel is turned on (little button just above the channel fader- needs to be pressed down)
  5. press pfl (pre-fade listen) button (next to button to switch channel on)- do you get any sound on main output or headphones or any indicator lights on mixer to show signal is getting that far (eitehr the individual channel metering lights or the main ones in the central section)?
  6. turn off pfl - make sure channel fader (slider) is up - normal position is ) - about 3/4 of way up. Check lights again on individual channel and main output section - any signs?
  7. Is the sub mix button for the channel pressed down - in which case you will need to bring sub mix (red) output faders up as well as main faders.
  8. If you have got signs of signal on the individual channel but not main see if the channel has been routed somewhere odd (like a subgroup of channels).
  9. Plug a working amp and speakers into one of the auxiliary outputs and use the relevant auxiliary send knob (on each channel just above the faders and pfl switches) to pan some signal to that auxiliary out - do you get anything? There is also a headphone socket for listening to the auxiliary channels (with a selector switch /knob to determine which one - make sure it is in the right position) try listening to the auxiliary output with headphones - anything? If yes the problem lies in the main output section.
  10. Check that there is not a jack plug in the insert socket (to route signal through an external effects unit) without a matching return jack being plugged in - if appropriate is relevant effects unit switched on and correctly set up - if unsure remove the insert plug to take it out of the system.
  11. Make sure any mute buttons are not switched in on main outputs.

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

Marshall MG50 DFX amp line out/headphones not working


Contrary to what's posted above, the Marshall MG series does not pass the speaker power output through the headphone jack, and inserting the headphones into the jack does not disable the speaker. The headphone amp is a separate circuit and it's input is taken before the master volume. So Jan's post is exactly right. Turn off the master volume and turn up all the other gain/volumes as high as they will go. The other issue is that the headphone jack's output does not drive low efficiency headphones well, so you need some headphones similar to Sony's MDR-V700s to hear it well. Earbuds just don't cut it.
