I just picked up a Crate VTX 212 amp. It sounds great! However, it hums a little louder than it should. I'm thinking it's a bad ground somewhere? Anyone out there deal with this before?


Check your guitar with another amp, or a different guitar with this one with no effects pedals, etc, to narrow it down to just the amp. At that point, try reversing the polarity. If none of the above helps, you may indeed have a bad ground somewhere and you'll need a tech to follow it to the source.

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.

Crate flexwave 120 head effects malfunctioning


That is probably a momentary switch that is dirty and sticking. These onboard effects on guitar amps are usually nothing more than a computer sound card and I've found bad connections going to and from them as well. I do think that switch is dirty and sticking, though.

Crate amp very low volume


Effects loops plug sockets get dirty and cause the sound to not get through to the actual power amp. Check those by plugging in a cable and wiggling to see. It needs to be wiggled and unplugged to see. Also, check for dirty volume control.

Crate flexwave 120 tuner and all effects stoped working


Hi there,I have the same problem with my flexwave 120. I opened the amp to measure several capacitors on the small effect circuit board. If one of this capaciters have internal short circuit, wich will effect the others causing effects to fail. I removed them one by one to find possible short circuit. All capacitors were ok. I think the problem is in the processor wich is to diffucult to replace. I think it's easier to replace the effects circuit board. But where do we find this board??10_29_2011_6_25_35_am.jpg

I have a crate GFX 50 and the effects come in only after about 15 minutes of play.


This is a warm up issue and can probably best be found by using circuit cooler on suspected components.

Other possible problems may be a bad solder joint or cracked circuit board.

Candle the board with a bright light to look for cracks.

Bad solder joints take experience to spot, but pay particular attention where panel mounted volume controls solder to the circuit board. Looking for the little ring around the solder menicus takes a sharp eye and good lighting. Resolder any suspected bad joints.

Have a crate limo tx50 d some times the effects stop working and or get a buzz from the unit


An educated guess is that you have a cracked circuit board or a bad solder joint. OFTEN the boards crack or traces get lifted or solder broken near pots such as volume control, etc.

Another place to look is the connections where jacks are soldered... those are chronic failure points.

One other problem is the bypass switches on the effect insert jacks. The contacts of the switch part of the jack get oxidized or bent.

I have a crate cpb150 amp i want to connect it to my digitech gsp2101 via livewire stp-202 cable what is the correct way?


I can understand your confusion... and a lot depends how you are going to use this. There are some caveats regarding the connections,
If you use the 1/4 outputs on the GSP, there is a speaker modeling like function that is NOT available, that IS available IF you use the XLR outputs.
The STP is an "Insert Snake" which is not really what you want as it is intended to send and receive (audio going both directions in the cable.
If you want that speaker function, then you should get two XLR to 1/4 TRS cables and go from the XLR's on the GSP to the Left and Right inputs on the back of the Crate. Your audio or guitar then is connected to the GSP guitar input.
If you connect the guitar to the crate and then use the STP, Plug the TRS single connector into the Left/Mono/send/rtn on the Crate. The Send cable of the Y should go to the Send jack on the back of the GSP and the return should go to the left return jack of the GSP. This connection I would NOT recommend as it will be noisier and you will lose the stereo effect capabiltiy since the effect is inserted as a mono.

I believe you would be happier with using the XLR's to carry left and right to the Crate and run your inout to the GSP. In short, you have the wrong cable to do the best job.

Crate tube amp will not power up but cooling fan tries to run


Yes.
Are you saying that the only indication that it is running at all is that the fans are running? So the tubes don't light up? No indicators on the front of the amp?
Power supplies that provide multiple voltages, which your amp has, can provide some of the voltages while having a problem that prevents them from providing others, all while not blowing a fuse. If you are not confident in your ability to work on a piece of electronic equipment that has 120VAC coming in and at least 175VDC or more present inside it, bring it to a service center.
The good news is that it is probably not horribly serious. Problems like this can almost always be repaired in a cost effective manner.
