I have an 80s model peavy tko 65 bass amplifier. there is some kind of short, the comp. light comes on and it just buzzes... just happened *** i was playing the other day, slapped it and it went away. came back and all i get is a buzz/hum. when i press on the front amplifier face anywhere the green comp. light goes off and it works fine.. when i release pressure it buzzes again. I took speaker out, inserted a different one, same thing, so that rules out the speaker... pulled the amp out and checked the fuse, it was fine... saw no loose solders anywhere.. what could this be?

No sound comes out but my speakers buzz. What do I do? I have a Yamaha RX-V661.

Sorry but you have to get your amplifier at a technician. The buzz from the speakers means internal electronic damage at the amplifier. TAKE CARE THAT in case of keeping the speakers on the buzz noise for some seconds may destroy the speakers.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Keep blowing out bass on speakers Denon 75rd

Thank you for responding. I called in an audio specialist to look at the whole system--he believes there is a problem with the amplifier. Will post what he finds out when he looks inside.

Alot of loud feedback through speakers, a loud buzzing noise

What sources make it happen or which do not? All buzzing = something in the amplifier end. is it from all speakers or just one?
One external source= RCA cables not grounded. Reconnect them tightly with a twisting motion to wipe off oxidation.

My Fender Bassman 100 amp keeps buzzing.

Part of the power supply is a filtering stage that completes the conversion from AC current to DC. The "cap" is a capacitor that furnishes voltage to help smooth the alternating current that is left from the rectifier stage. These will start to fail over time. While it is a relatively simple repair for anyone that does this for a living, I would not suggest this as your first repair. Expect a parts cost inthe $20 range plus the local labor rate for the entire repair.

Amplifier is on protect and green power light does not come on and i dont have no bass what do i do or check?

Check all connections for bits of wire that may short out, and check the way the wires are run to the sub, they maybe crushed by something they run under like a seat etc. Also your subs may be cooked. This is easily checked by carefully pressing on the sub around the the center hub with a 'clawed' hand (so that your fingers are evenly spaced and you press evenly straight inward), if you hear a grinding noise (like there's sand in it) or if the sub dosen't move at all then it's destroyed.
Let me know if this helps.

I have a Trace Elliot bass amplifier (gp7sm 130) and it makes a buzzing soound. Any ideas?

First check all of the ground connections both at the amp and bass. If the amp makes the buzzing with no input at all, the problem is most likely a bad cap in the front end of the amp. These are not the easiest to work on. I would suggest that you bring the amp to a servicer for repair. Anything that you can describe that indicates when the buzzing is more evident would be helpful in tracking down the problem.

Loud Buzzing Sound

This may be a power supply failure, and or a short in the output stage, and in the drivers for the output stage.

This is not a repair you can do at home unless you have a lot of experience in troubshooting and analysing problems in power amplifier equipment.
