Try this: plug a stereo headphone into send & check if you get something on one side of the headphones (should be left side) if yes check the cable you use, it's possible that a mono plug (as used for guitars) is disabling the send output, using a stereo plug & adaptors may work (especially if you get the sound in the right side of you headphones check also the manual you may find a description how to connect/insert a guitar effect when recording or live mix

Why is my Fender Blues Deluxe Amp making a crackling sound without an instrument even plugged into it and when I do plug in, it quiets when I touch any place on the guitar?


You probably need a new input jack on the amplifier. When they get loose the connecting wires can crackle, but plugging a guitar in stabilizes them (no more crackle).

Marshall mg100hdfx head. I get no sound whatsoever plugged into the guitar input but the controls seem to work as I can hear changes in the light ambient static. I will get sound however if I plug directly...


You MAY have a broken input jack. If you can hear changes from the overdrive gain control, that control is just one stage away from the input jack. Also there is a capacitor C60 that is for RF bypassing and if that shorts that will kill the audio. Yes, inout jacks get destroyed by tripping over guitar cables... that is why you run the cord through the amp handle before plugging it in. Of course verify your guitar and cable is good using another amp.

I have a Frontman Fender 25R, it has a power, the auxilliary input is working (the RCA, red and white ) sound is produce, when I plugged an electric guitar on the 1/4 input there is no sound coming...


You actually have the "B" version as the original 25R doesn't have RCA jacks. Anyway, on with your problem...

I want you to do a test: With a set of headphones plug them into the preamp output and then play your guitar... don't expect much loudness, it may be very faint and will ONLY be in one of the sides of the headphones. This tests the preamp section... have the guitar volume wide open.

IF you can hear the guitar that way, then the switch contact on the PA INPUT jack (not the preamp output) is not making contact. These jacks are really poor and the problem is not that uncommon. Fix is to open the unit and increase the spring tension on the contact or replace the jack. Never use the jack as they worsen evertime you plug something into it.

Note that the failing switch symptom MAY be broken soldering in the vicinity of the jack so look for that also. And also check the soldering of the guitar input jack as that is a common problem. Always loop your guitar cable through the handle so tripping over the cable doesn't break the jack by yanking the plug sideways... another common problem.

I have the all tube Crate TV-120. When I turn it on it fires up fine. When I switch the standby on I get a loud whistle sound and can hear a humming from the speakers. I can also get a low guitar volume...


This is a guess: I suspect the bypass switch on that effects loop jack is causing a problem. These jacks cause a lot of problems. The switch passes the signal through if there is no plug for an effects in the jack.

You can SOMETIMES tighten up the contact to restore the jack. You have to disassemble teh unit to get at it of course.

Amp powers up,all tubes lightup,can hear reverb when you gently shake it, plug a cord into poweramp in and you can hear sound when touching the other end of the cord,but when you plug into the inputs no...


Bridge the preamp out to the power amp in with a short cable while suppling signal to the input..

IF that works, the switch on the power amp input jack is bad. You can try increasing the spring tension, but frankly these jack are poor quality

You could run it that way with a short cable or open the unit to do the repair.

Constant buzzing in my 15 W amplifier


Make sure you have a ground prong on your power cord. Most input jacks nowadays are closed circuit. They have a switch built in that won't allow any sound without the cord plugged in. You may have a damaged jack that will give you a loud hiss, a loud hum or crackling depending on what volume your controls are set at.

Marshall mg100hdfx loud fuzz and distortion and no guitar sound


Check your input (guitar signal).
Also, check your gain and volume levels.
Make sure that you have a reliable, steady, and clean power source as well.
If the problem persists, contact the store from which it was purchased. There are a lot of things that can go wrong internally with the cheaper Marshall models.

What is wrong with my audio plug?


Yep, you blew it up, all right.

The headphone jack in the laptop is a low-level OUTPUT which goes TO a set of headphones or the INPUT of an amplifier. You went the wrong way and fed a high-level signal (the guitar amplifier OUTPUT) INTO the laptop.

The electronics inside the laptop are not made to deal with the high level you fed in, so it's been damaged. Ever blow out a set of speakers with too high a volume? That's basically what has happened here.

To fix the problem and get your sound back would require a new system board.

First check your guitar to amp cord.
The pickup, audio jack, or pickup selection switch may be defective.
