What type of noise is it making? If it sounds like a load hum, you may have a 60 cycle hum issue. This is caused by a capacitor not filtering out the 60 cycle ripple on the DC voltage supplied by the power supply. If you have this problem I would suggest measuring the power supply with a DC voltmeter first and writing this measurement down. Then I would suggest you plugging the amp into an isolation transformer and taking an oscilloscope (plugged into the wall)and measuring the DC voltage while the oscilloscope is set to AC if you see an AC ripple voltage higher then .1mv you have a bad filter capacitor or a bad voltage regulator.

My peavey valveking 212 feeds back when the gain button is pushed it makes a loud whistling sound with nothing plugged in

Turn your guitar away from the amp's speakers. The pickups on the guitar are feeding the amp's signal back into the amp creating a feedback loop, especially with the gain button on. Loud volumes cause this looping path between the amp speakers and guitar pickups. You may need to reduce amp volume also.

I have a peavey VIP2 amp.Can I use my acoustic/electric guitar in the electric guitar setting

You can not only play it on electric guitar setting, you can play it LOUD. Its all about what YOU do and what YOU like. Dont accept it when somebody tells you that the music you're playing doesnt sound good to them. ITS YOUR MUSIC !
Do whatever you want. And NO it wont hurt guitar or amp. Rock on or whatever it is you do.

PLUG YOUR LEAD INTO AMP TURN UP JUST A LITTLE SEE IF IT BUZZES WHEN YOU TOUCH THE END OF YOUR CABLE.IF IT BUZZES THEN THE FAULT IS IN YOUR GUITAR MOST LIKELY THE ACTIVE WIRE HAS COME OFF THE INTERNAL GUITAR PLUG.

Hi- When I plug in my les paul into my new peavey windsor class A amp, I get a loud hummimg noise. But when I mute the fretboard or touch anything metal on the guitar, it goes away. I don't have this...

Sounds Like The Amp Has A Grounding Problem Check To See If The Ground Wire Is Hooked Up Inside The Amp And Or If The Pin Has Been Broken Off The End Of The Cord.
Sincerely,

My amp won't play distortion.

Hello all you have to do is turn your master volume down to just barley on then turn your pre amp volume somwhere about 2:oclock depending on how much distortion you want ajust your volume on your guitar a little past halfway to give yourself some headroom in case you need to turn up some while you are playing! just think of it as your guitar is your first pre-amp then your amp is second preamp in line ,that is your over drive ,then the master volume is how loud you want the overall volume i hope this help's ya!

Peavey banit 65 guitar amp. When turned on it makes a loud almost feedback sound with out anything pluged into it.

A few things can cause it. Bad ground\bad power supply filter capacitor\bad low level op amp IC. You most likely have a bad power supply or trouble at your input jack. Good luck!
