Marshall Amplification Marshall MG2FX Guitar Combo Amp power turns on but no sound


Hi!
At this point, I would just take it to a tech rather than poke around in it. It sounds like the power section is the problem as you have guessed, but without the technical knowledge you'd be shooting in the dark. That particular amp is right on the line of being expensive enough that would be worth repairing, but you might do just as wel to check Ebay for another used one.
Good Luck!

Hi, I have a marshall VS65R I bought in 96. It sat in storage for close to 8 years. I plugged it in and it sounded great....a week later at band rehearsal I played two songs and the sound went out...I...


Some of these have electrolytic caps in the power supply that are nearing end-of-life. I would take unit in for servicing if you are not electronically adept.

First thing though, check for a bad input jack as these often go bad. A wiggle test of the plug should make that possibility reveal itself.

I've had my marshall mg 50dfx for 3 months and it doesn't sound right to me because the overdrive is just barely different to the clean channel and doesn't have as sharp as sound as other mg50dfx models


Play around with your placement and where you are compared to the amp. I have a line 6 spider jam and I was getting pissed everytime I went into guitar center b/c theirs had more bass than mine. Then I realized that I put the amp beside me when I play but I play infront and over it when I go there. Have you ever noticed how much gain you lose when you take it outside compared to in your room. I would just look up the owners manual and see if you are missing anything. Check the fuse in the back too. If you clean isnt "that" clean and your overdrive is sucking then maybe the fuse is on its way out. Only $1 problem though. good luck

I have a marshall avt 100 which was working fine until i plugged new guitar in strummed one chord and the speaker went **** up, so i plugged into another cab and played a while then a week later plugged in...


This is a problem I would recommend for a qualified Marshall amp service person to look at. Worst case scenario is that somehow the speaker out put transformer or the power transformer burned out. They aside from output tubes are the most expensive parts to replace. Add shop labor on top. Ask for an estimate first. Consider how much a new amp will cost and then decide. I would personally go for the repair myself.

Hi thecross

I have fixed so many of these amps over the years... Marshall Valvestate series of amps are notorious for dry solder joints developing on the main PCB. If you have the skills(or an old mate that does)Remove the PCB from the chassis and resolder any suspect dry joints and you will fix the problem. Check particularly about any components there the PB has changed colour. This is an indication of heat in that area, and heating and cooling is a major cause dry joints.
I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

Marshall 8080 valvestate amplifier


There could be a short in the rectifier diodes or in the transformer itself. Can you take some measurements inside the unit?

Let me know.

Marshall valvestate 8040 - how to change the valve?


Hi chagzuki, you are right, but only when the valves are used as outputs, You amp has transistorised outputs, and a single tube used for distortion/gain. You will get a very long life out of this tube also because its supply voltage that is is used in the valvestate preamps is really quite low. Just enough for it to work really, so the tubes life can be expected to be much longer than normal. It is also a preamp tube, not an output tube, so they rarely need changing. If you ever did want to change it(dont bother), it is located on the PCB inside the unit. You have to slide the sleeve off to get at it. Get yourself a JCM800=the best guitar amp ever built(imho), then yo got pure Marshall tone, and output tubes that need changing every 6 months or so. Now go RIFF OUT and dont worry about your valvestates' "valve"
