Crate gtx212 mute circuit (Q24 across IC4A pins 1 and 2) should go positive on the gate when a plug is inserted.


Looks like Q24 changes the gain at IC4-A from low with no input jack to normal gain with a jack inserted. Since this appears to be a guitar amp that expects a floating input plug any connection at the input to say, a mixer etc may cause a re-grounding via that equipment's circuits, thus negating the auto mute...... eggs & suck :-) If using a moving coil meter it could upset things.... an interesting fault! Sorry I can't be more help - Good luck!

Effects don't work


On some amps there needs to be a footswitch inserted in the control jack to activate the effects circuit. Contact Crate to see if that's the case with your amp.

I have a Crate PA-8 4 ohm 150 watt PA head that I run to four Peavy 10" PA speakers (two per side in series). It was very good, clean sound, but the speakers were cheap and may have been pushed too hard -...


150 watts should be easily handled by four Peavey speakers in the connection you described.. If the Peavey's are 8 ohms, then your total load was 8 ohms for the series/parallel arrangement which is well within the 2 ohm drive capability of the Crate according to specs.

I question if you really mean the speakers were in series? This requires a special cable to do this. Now if you mean they were "daisy chained" like the amp went to one speaker and another cable connected that speaker to another, then you REALLY had ALL speakers in parallel electrically which would be at the 2 ohm low limit of the amp... In either case, with only 1/4 of the 150 Watts to each, the speakers should NOT have been damaged. The amp MAY have been damaged. Try each speaker individually at a REASONABLE level to test.

If you plug into the effects loop out jack,OFTEN the connection to the internal power amp is broken so you might have to arrange a special cable as a wye to go back into the power amp as well as your external amp. In any case pwere ALL interconnected amps, etc from the same power source/receptacle for system safety.

Buzzes and feedback


Make sure the "ground lift" option is used on the direct box.

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES use a headphone output jack as the output of this unit. The headphone jack is for HEADPHONES that have no return to ground. Use of this as drive to a sound board is sure to cause problems and in some cases can fry these amps due to the circuitry.

The cable used to go to the direct box should be very short and high quality.

You should source the power for this unit from the SAME source and receptacle as your sound board if at all possible.

I have a crate PA 8 and it makes a crackling noise when I play through it. I hooked the speakers to my other amp and they sound good, I hooked the PA to my marshall cab and it still has the noise, so I...


Hi

The problem is with the amplifier itself. Crackling is usually capacitor related and you will need to have the amp checked over to properly identify the cause.

Some amps are also prone to pick up static from other electrical items which can also cause these problems. I had a crackling issue with an old Crate amp of mine which turned out it was due to being too near a computer/monitor so it is worth eliminating these things as a possible cause before having the amp checked.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a Crate PA-8 that hasn't been used in a long time. I destress and sing. Anyoo it has a power issue. Light is flashing on then goes off. I can't find a manual. Can anyone assist me please?


you have either a failing fuse or a failing power transformer. take out the screws on the top of the amp, leave the handle in tact and pull out the chasis. look at your fuse to see if it is in its holder correctly, and see if the fuse is burnt. the correct fuse values will be printed on the circuit board. if the fuse looks good then, it may be the power tranny going south.
