Hey madmedia63

Good old amps these. Fixed a few over the years. I would expect dry solder joints in and about the channel switching. If you got a mate with soldering experience, he da man to help you sort it. Hard to help you anymore without actually looking inside the amp to see what's going on. But that's were I would start at least. Way round it I guess is to use a distortion pedal. Go for a metalzone to get similar sort of distortion. \m/ riff out ;)

I have a crate vtx200s has very little volume everything else works whats the deal?

Hi, you hadnt mentioned how long you've had the amp, or how new it is, so I'm going to assume it's new to you. The Crate VTX200 has 3 channels, each with its own volume level. Let's check the simple things first:
1. Check to make sure you're adjusting the same volume knob volume knob to the same channel. The active channel will be lit with a green light.
2. Check the cables from the "Speaker Out" jacks on the amp (if you are using them). Are they plugged in all the way, or are they damaged?
3. Are you playing through a preset that you may have accidentally made "low", and may not be aware of or are stuck in it?
If none of these answers helps, there might be a problem with the input buffer in the circuit or possibly within the damping circuit of the speakers. I'd advise having the amp serviced to confirm an internal electrical problem also. If you don't have a manual for the amp, one can be found here:

Sitting at light and its bumps forward like trans slips out of gear oil is clean an red drives fine dose not slip

If it has over one hundred and twenty thousand Klm I am wondering if the transmission filter is dirty. Our car was not shifting right and I changed the transmission fluid and filter and it ran good for many months after that.

Crate flexwave 120 head effects malfunctioning

That is probably a momentary switch that is dirty and sticking. These onboard effects on guitar amps are usually nothing more than a computer sound card and I've found bad connections going to and from them as well. I do think that switch is dirty and sticking, though.

Hie, I Have got a crate tx 15 and, I have a sound problem, all time I have got a buzzzz... but there another thing too, the led for the battery recharge does'nt light and when I plug the electric...

Your symptoms would indicate the battery is defective. When a battery fails, its internal resistance goes up and they PROBABLY use this battery in place of having a separate filter capacitor so you will get hum or buzz as a result and no charging indication.

Solid State amplifier problems

I would look for crossed wires or shorts on the board itself as a result of overheating. They will look like toasted circles around the pins of the board. You may not have been the first to open the amp and make a repair.

Intermittent shorts in a Crate Limo TX50DE Guitar

turn that ****** on and get a can of freeze spray. coming and going type issues is usually related to a failing electrolytic capacitor. there may also be a bad mosfet, rectifier, diode, etc. i would be suspect to caps. schematics probably only available thru crate and you have to pay a couple bucks, but trust me its worth the couple bucks spent and having it on its way than wasting hours online not getting anywhere. by the way i checked my sources and came up with nada.

Remote will not work

if the light is staying on this means that a button is stuck down on your remote. It might be defective I would contact the company about warranty.
