Hi davyboy5

Sounds like the speaker has blown or maybe a wire has come off. Sometimes the headphone socket can go faulty also. Do you have nyway of testing the speaker?

My Marshall MG50 DFX Has an awful buzzing sound that comes out of it after startup.


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

Marshall Mg30DFX guitar amp volume level cuts in and out! Anyone know how to fix this or what the problem is?


I have just fixed one of the amplifiers with this fault. It was a poor solder joint on the headphone socket. The ground of the speaker is switched through the headphone socket, so if there isn't a good connection, the speaker volume drops, but the headphone output is still OK.

When I listen to my amp with headphones the sound seems to come and go.


I have a 250 gfx, and I have had the same problem intermittently, I have concluded that the digital fx section is to blame, as it is also responsible for the speaker modelling for the line/headphone jack, and I have also had problems with my fx section.
If you have anything in the effects loop that boosts signal volume remove it, a small boost in the loop gives the power amp in these a nice glassy sound, but seems to be (in my case at least) responsible for the failure of the fx/ emulated line out.
Also check all your leads and headphones cord, try some different headphones if you have them.

I have a Marshall MG100HDFX 100-Watt Amplifier half stack (solid state) and I now am not getting ANY sound out of the amp. I changed the fuse and the power module behind the fan, and still no sound,...


plug headphone in the effects send jack...If you get somme sound (won't be too loud) there, that means preamp sections are probably ok. Drive a signal into the effects return jack... If power amp responds, it is OK... If both these are OK, then suspect the switch contacts on these two jacks that forward the preamp to the power amp when effects unit is NOT plugged in.
These contacts are a chronic problem.

Hi I have a marshall haze15w amp and stack, the problem seems to


There are many models of Marshal amps icluding 15Watt types.

First thing to try is to see if headphones have normal volume. If they do, then the headphone jack switch that connects the speaker is LIKELY bad.

If the headphones do not have any volume, LIKELY causes are:

1. Fried output power amp

2. Volume pot is broken or has bad solder joints to the circuit board.

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.

Hi my Marshal G15 is making an echoy twang when played loud (& open E chords). does this mean the reverb is broken?


I suspect the vibration when it is loud is vibrating a reverb tank within the unit.

Test this bylistening with headphones and see if you get same sound.

It may be the reverb has a resonance or the cabinet does that is sensitive to your E chords.

The shock mounting of the reverb may have failed to isolate the reverb tank from speaker vibrations... hence the headphone test.

Peavey minx 110 no sound from main speaker but headphone jack is ok. speaker wires are attached ok.everything on the board appears to be in good shape.amp powers up and all controls work great through...


Inside the headphone jack is a built in switching mechanism. It is there to cut off the sound to the speaker when you are using headphones to practice quietly. For some reason or another it seems as if this is no longer working correctly. One of the causes of this can be bad solder joints on the circuit board where this jack is located. Another cause is a failure of the jack itself. If you are capable, Take the circuit board out and have a look. Hope this helps.

No output


There are some possibilities. One, your speaker may be blown or disconnected. Make sure the wiring is still connected to the speaker and if you have one, try measuring the resistance(impedance) of the speaker with a volt ohm meter.Do this unplugged from current and disconnect one of the wires from the speaker or you will get a reading from the output stage. Two if there is a heaphone or line out jack it may have become faulty. If you have sound with the headphones plugged in your amp is still producing sound. Some jacks are designed to interrupt the signal to the speakers allowing you to practice without bothering anyone. If your amp has that feature and you still have sound with the headphones and your speaker tests OK then your problem is the jack. Hope this helps.

My amp won't play sound without headphones plugged in


Hi..
1st off ,check the wire to the speaker. If that's ok then your headphone jack is broken inside. Peavey and others use cheesy headphone jacks.
