Try taking the guitar back to the store where you got it. Recreate the sound. If it is a faulty connection they will know what to do about it.

I am assuming that your guitar is not under warranty and is probably used, if not take it back to where you bought it and get a replacement or a repair. If you bought it used try this: Take the knobs off and remove any covers left that are covering the electronics inside. once exposed look carefully and see if you find a wire that has come off. If you find one, try to locate where it came from (should be close by). If you find the contact that is missing its connection, replace it with the wire you found and see if that solves your problem. Your question seems to say that you get no output from the guitar, so also check the 1/4 inch output jack on the guitar and make sure the wires are soldered on good. Plug the gulitar into an amp and wiggle all the wires inside the guitar and listen for changes in the speaker of your amp. Let me know if any of this helps and if not, we can try something else.

Can not get it to work. Im pretty tech makes feedback noise constantly, regardless of mode.

A bad ground connection?. Try tightening the nut on the phono plug first. You can pull out that section where the cable hooks into and visually check the solder connections.

I had major static sounds from my yamaha stagepas 500. I plugged in an acoustic guitar into the mixer while running a keyboard and 2 vocal mics. I started getting crackling sounds. I changed the patch...

Chances are there is nothing wrong with the mixer. IF you accidentally turned on Phantom power, that would cause the problem. Phantom is ONLY used with condenser mics and a few DI boxes. Turning it on can create noise unless balanced lines are used everywhere.

I bought a yamaha electric it has two double pick ups and a single in the middle the volume knob was no good so i changed it when i opened it up they had the wiring all messed up it has a five pos. switch...

my guess is two positions at one end work(aka 1 and 2, or 4 and 5)? if yes, then 2 of the pickups are wired wrong. (if 1 and 2 work, which are the forward positions, then the middle and bridge pickup are wired wrong, etc.) the problem is there is a variety of 5way switches that are different. i would guess yours is "import" style. are there 8 lugs in a single row on the back of the switch? if yes, you probably have an import switch. best i can do in text is tell you that the middle two lugs are common. this means one goes to the volume pot, and there is probably a little jumper between the two lugs as well. now there are 3 lugs on either side of those 2 common lugs. one set of 3 will probably run to the tone pot in some fashion or be empty. the other set of 3 lugs is for the pickup lead wires. it sounds like at least one or two of those lugs are empty but shouldnt be, or are wired wrong. i cant tell you colors of your wires without seeing it, but this is how it should be, with the exception that the tone knob will probably be on the bottom 3 lugs somewhere. 1 would be the neck pickup, 2 the middle, and 3 the bridge hope this helps, feel free to post a pic of your wiring, etc xadioriderx.jpg

I just bought 2 of the DSR 115 Yamaha speakers. One of them is NOW making a "light fluttering" sound from the woofer! Could this damage caused by my "Yamaha GQ 1031 b EQ"...

Don't mess with it and risk voiding your warranty. These are a servoed speaker and there is a problem with the feedback in it. Exercise your warranty immediately.

Adapter/Plug in

Wow. You most likely broke a connection on the back of the plug receptacle. Take it to a Certified yamaha, or electronics tech. Perhaps the music store you bought it from. Make sure they do it in house, or find out what tech they recommend. might save you a few bucks of mark-up.

My Guitar Amp Started Squeiling And Now It Is Barely Audible.

There is little or no hope that this can be fixed at home, sorry . If it lights up and you have power and still no sound, it may be simi cooked, not to say it couldn't be fixed. But lots of times these days Tecs want as much to repair as a new one. Balanceit out for a new one , to the repair cost . You may just find a new one is the way to go.But never toss out, junk is someones treasure. good luck DFD
