This could be caused by a few things. The cable could have a short in it so try it out on a different guitar. If it works the jack on the guitar could have a loose solder joint. This is usually caused by putting stress on the cable and causing the jack to move.

I have an Ovation Celebrity Koa with the OP-30 system in it. When I plug it in, I don't always get sound. I changed the battery, and have a new patch cord. Can someone help me?

where the socket is for the cord to be plugged in, often the ground will come loose or break on the socket connection, you will need to take off the plate that conceals the electronics of the guitar and see if any wires have become damaged , this happens a lot when your using a patch cord with a 90 degree end going into the guitar , it puts added pressure on a already touchy socket.

Make you a hook out of a coat hanger. Get inside and hook the wiring to the jack, take the nut off the jack and pull it up through the F hole. You can plug in to it a patch cord so you can pull it back through once fixed. Check out for a wiring diagram.

When I plug in my guitar to the Fender Frontman 64R Amp and I just barely move the cord, it make this really loud screeching type noise. It's not an old amp; I got it about five months ago. I can't...

Yes, there are several possibilities. First thing is to disconnect your guitar and then plug in the cord to the amp. Expect a bit of hum. If it screeches, then problem is not feedback via the guitar. If it doesn't MAYBE your guitar is "hearing the amp" which the guitar is then a microphone and can feedback. Moving the cable generates electrical noise which can trigger the feedback to start.
If you get the screech without the guitar connected, then TRY a new guitar cable. Make sure it is an INSTRUMENT cable... I have seen some try to use speaker cables or junky 1/4 inch cables intended for home stereo... these will NOT work and can cause the feedback. The next possibility is a broken jack on the amp. This would require repair. The common cause of this is to fail to run the cord through the handle of the amp... one trip on the cord or step on it pulling the plug sideways in the amp and the jack is broken and it is a trip to the shop as well. While on the subject ALWAYS run the cord at the guitar end either through the strap or your belt loop. Cords left dangling keep rotating and soon wear out the plug and also the jack in the guitar and then that has to go to the shop.

Hi I have a Digitech RP 300 Modeling Guitar Processor that lights up and will play the metronome tik but will not output the guitar, the guitar input is dead or semes to be. can any one help. thanks...

The metronome is built in software, but it proves that your output is working fine. That's good.
Try changing your patch cable from guitar>pedal. if that doesn't fix it, grab a screwdriver.
Open the pedal and check the input port - is there any bent pieces or blockages preventing the cable from contacting what it needs to? Is the solder broken, cracked, or missing? Are both contact points firm and in place?

My warlock makes this horrible noise as i plug in the cord. I don' have ANY idea why. I've been messing around with it and still nothing has worked out. It makes the sound as if my amp is turned all the...

If the noise is a pop or click, that's normal. Any other sound could be caused by too long a cord, which will produce noise while on the floor.

If it's not the cord, then you most likely have something wrong with the wiring inside the guitar. Have a luthier (guitar builder and technician) look at it, and s/he should be able to fix the problem.

Hope that helps!

Humming sound,very noisey.


There are usually three reasons for the hum many of us guitarists experience. First, make sure it's not coming from your patch cable you use to connect to your amp. Guitarists who have been playing a while know that these cords need regular replacement.

Another common problem is the electrical outlet it's being plugged into. Often times, if plugged into a different outlet, preferably one that it does not have to share, your amp noise can be reduced.

A great product to have is a line hum reducer, which you plug into the outlet, then plug into that. They are great at reducing line hum, and usually listed on eBay or another retail online establishment dealing with electronics and electrical products. They can range from $7.00 to over $40.00, and in the case of these hum reducers, more expensive does not usually mean better.

Finally, another common and particularly annoying problem with regard to hum, is if your guitar's components are not properly shielded. Even if it comes from a good company adn is a good model, one may have to do some additional work to get it quiet.

Pickups and other electrical equipment inside a guitar pick up and transfer many frequencies of white noise, and it can be a real problem.

Your pickups and your electronics cavity can be completely shielded by using copper tape you can find on the internet. I purchase mine on eBay but you can find it at many places.

The tape is a flat copper strip with adhesive backing. It comes in different widths, even small sheets to cover the inside back of your electronics cover in back of your guitar. The pots should be loosened from the body of the guitar and pulled (gently) enough to work in the cavity (no need usually to remove them - so no cutting of wires and resoldering is necessary in MOST models).

Loosen the screws and pull your pickups and surround them with the tape, and insulate the pickup cavities you pulled them out of as well. Do not remove your pickups completely - just move them out of the way as you work. Be careful not to pull apart any of your solder connections, or you will have to resolder or pay someone to resolder them. More work than necessary.

So these are the big top three. They are all non-complicated fixes, and following the steps I wrote should get you noticed for your guitar playing, and not for your humming.

I hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

No sound on base guitar

both the red and white plugs have to be plugged into your tv. If your TV doesn't have 2 audio inputs, then you just need a $3.00 "Y" cord from radioshack and then you wil hear it. Bring in your cord with you and tell the cashier you need a Y cord with 2 females and 1 male.
