A simple test is to connect internal speakers across an AA battery (for about half a second) & listen for a click as battery is connected & another as battery is disconnected.

If this does not happen, check the internal jack plug connection & its connection to the speakers.

If OK, then you can test each speaker individually using the same battery across each in turn.

If this advice is helpful, I would appreciate a rating.

Yes it can.....but you will need the schematics and some test gear in order to do it.....and a soldering iron....what do you mean by no surround on the speaker?? Can you post a pic??

No sound coming out for my hartke amps?


Are the internal speakers properly connected via the rear-mounted 1/4 inch "Speaker Output" jack? If so and still no sound, try connecting a separate external speaker (floor monitor, pa cabinet) for a "low volume" test.

The OM says the internal speakers are 4 ohm so it's unlikely that a wiring problem with speaker connections would cause all four to stop working. With AC power disconnected from outlet check for an internal speaker protection fuse BUT be careful. Charged capacitors can hold a charge for weeks!!!

How to hook up a gemini amplifier?


typically (unless your useing other gear besides mixer and amp) you'd come out of the L/R outs. ( Main outs ) to the Main inputs of the power amp then out to your speakers (outs of power amp). Now the amp could be in bridge mono or other factors but typically, like i said, just
Mixer Out- Amp In- Amp Out- Speakers.

It is an either/or thing. I would recommend you get a headphone amplifier or get external speakers and drive them externally. Internal speakers are relatively poor quality anyway

My amp has output but no sound from the speaker.


If you have tested with other speakers, you may have blown the ones that are not working. Test the speaker(s) on another source. I am not sure how you have tested your amp that it "has output"... indicators mean NOTHING on the amps as far as actual power going out.

I have a MG100HDFX head, with the cabinet that came with it and the other I plugged in, the amp sounded fine for about 5mins while i was warming up. Then it started to fade in and out with a very fuzzy...


I would first suspect the head... try driving a different speaker to isolate which is at fault.

If unit starts working when cooled down, it may be going into thermal protection due to any of several causes including a defect or overdriving it.

Marshall MG100HDFX 100-Watt Amplifier Head. The head phone jack works but speaker output is dead. Hooked it to speakers with another amp input and after word it stopped working. Can't see any overheated...


You'll have to take it in to get it repaired. From what you described it sounds like you blew the output stage out. You can't run from your speaker output jack into the input jack of another amp. You should go out of the recording out, line out, effects out or in the least case your headphone out. What happens usually is your output transformer short circuits due to a mismatch of impedances. It sounds like you still have a transformer though so you might have gotten lucky. You will need to take it in though. Sorry.

Yamaha psr-240 lights up but no sound.. no sound from head phones either. Seems to be working with exception of sound out..


try placing your ear on the speakers, adjust the volume control up and down several times, you should hear a humming sound that goes up and down. if not problem with the stage before the amplifier, that is the sound processor. if you dont hear the hum. problem with the amplifier and speakers, including the sound ports or jack. dissassemble the unit. look for loose connections from speakers to amplifier.
