Hi PSumac

Here is a PDF of how to upgrade your amp.

It does involve changing a ROM chip in the amp, so it is more of a hardware upgrade to get the new firmware into your rig. The upgrade ROM can be ordered through a Fender dealer closest to you.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

Fender mustang noise


This isn't much information to go on. I may can help if you could be more specific. What amp? Presets of what? What software? What noise gate? Where is this noise, amp output or pc input? A computer sound card can do weird things when musical equipment is plugged into it, some mice will do it, making noise when you move the mouse around. I'm guessing how you are set up, if you get back to me, I will try to help you further.

I have the fender accessories footswitch and the cyber twin. The pedal has stopped working and I have replaced the cable but still does not work. Is it the pedal or the amp? The amp buttons still work...


Verify the footswitch with an ohmmeter. You should find that each of four pins should have continuity to pin 2 of the connector when the switch associated with the pin is pressed.

Note the pin numbers on the connector seem to have a weird layout. Here is a link to your amp schematic. The Footswitch interface is shown on page 3 of 12.

http://elektrotanya.com/fender_cyber-twin_sch.pdf/download.html

Use the ohmmeter to check each wire in the cable is good. SOme cables, unless the official one for the unit, may lack some wires.

The amp "reads" the footswitch state into a register which is then read serially. The inouts are pretty well protected from user mistakes. With the schematic you should be able to analyze the failure.

Check for degradation of C144 a 2200mfd/16volt cap.

This is power source for the 5 volt digital hardware. Check for excess ripple with a scope. The voltage should NOT go below 8 volts. If the voltage dips, the DSP will go nut-case.

From the manual... is THIS the proceedure you are using to save the settings?

 T o SAVE:
1) Press the SAVE key once and a prompt displays the PLAYER’S
LOUNGE preset about to be replaced, (example prompt shown).
2) Rotate the DATA WHEEL to select a PLAYER’S LOUNGE preset to
overwrite with the currently active amp design
(last chance to press EXIT, cancelling the save).
3) Press the SAVE key a second time to complete the save.

Cyber Twin selector knob.


The selector knob may be a potentiometer or a rotary impulse giver device. In any case, it looks like the internal contacts are either dirty or oxydized so the value is changing in an erratic way which causes the unit to skip several presets at a time.

It would require a skilled technician to disassemble and clean the controller (if it can be disassembled in the first place), otherwise you will probably need to replace the preset selector knob entirely.

FENDER CYBER TWIN AMP SOUNDS GREAT WORKS GREAT BUT WHEN YOU CRANK THE VOLUME A LITTLE LOUDER THAN NORMAL THE AMP GET STATIC OR DISTORTS OR POPS AND CRACKS. COULD THE TUBES DO THIS?


First make sure you have the TRIM knob positioned correctly. When playing loud the Red Led should just blink a bit so you know you're not overloading the preamp and Digital sections. The Twin Reverb Patch is a clean place to start so select that first. On this amp it's a good idea to set the MASTER to 5 and use the VOLUME control at as low a setting as you can. The GAIN control should be set under 4. You better sound crystal clear on this setting. Try turning up the volume to see how loud you can get without breaking up. It's a guitar amp so there will be some grainy distortion but it should be very light. I bet you get through this test without much trouble. After that you need to be very careful about what settings you're using since many of the presets may not mesh with your guitar pickups. You should concentrate on tweaking one highgain setting and learn about how the controls interact. The amp is so much more complicated than a 10 knob standard guitar amp. Most people need to put in some time to get a handle on it.

As far as the tubes go, typically they can get microphonic which was a problem with versions 1.1 and 1.0 of this amp so check that. Fender had a Cyber twin upgrade kit way back to fix this but if you have version 1.2 or 1.3 that's not it. Problems with this amp are typically caused by control setting more often than an electronic problem but this reponse should get you started figuring it out.
