Take it for repair immediately as there is something that is thermally sensitive and it may cause worse damage with continued use. The problem is LIKELY a broken solder joint. Depending on where it is, it could cause damage to the power amp portion. It OFTEN is at one of the leads to a volume control and those USUALLY don't cause damage, but one can't be sure till it is repaired. These broken joints oxidize and then eventually warm and punch through and the device starts working. You MIGHT want to try wiggling the controls to see if one brings the unit on immediately showing itself as the culprit.

Can you repair a tear in a peavey guitar amp and will it affect the sound


I have to assume you're really meaning a tear in the speaker cone. If so, yes you can repair it if it's small and yes, it will affect the sound. Peavey Bandit amps have come with a few different speakers over the life of the name, but all will still be available either online or directly from Peavey's parts department. Here's the link-

Peavey bandit 112


have you tried using a foot pedal? Are you sure it is switching (green light turns red, etc?). On the lead channel are you turning up the gain all the way and the volume down?

NEED SKYMATIC DIRGRAM FOR PEVEY 112 AMP TH E AMP WORKS FINE FOR A WHILE THEN IT HAS A VERY LOUD POP AND QUITS, JUST TURN IT OFF FOR 4 OR 5 MINS. AND IT WORKS GOOD A GAIN. I DO SUPECT THE OUT PUT...


USUALLY if the output transistors go, they stay gone. You may have a thermal cutout switch shutting off because of over temp. Make sure fans and heat sinks have free air flow. I have seen broken solder joints in these near the volume pots. Those can also cause a failure as unit warms. When it stops again, let it sit without playing for say 10 minutes and see if it comes back on... if it does, the over temp sensor is probably shutting it down so it doesn't fry. Is it possible you are driving it too hard? Often people try to get more sound level out than unit can deliver.

I'm trying to get a crunchy metal sound from my peavey 112 bandit. What should I set my controls to?


Overdrive is the key to the crunchy metal sound. The only effect on that amp is reverb.
You may want to consider getting an overdrive pedal to get the sound you want.

Distortion on the lead channel is not working


The intergrated circuit is most likely gone out. Not much you can do, cost in repair is more than the amp. Check out the peavey vypyr, it's a great modeling amp for about $100.
