SOURCE: How to fix the input plug on a Crate GX-15 guitar amp.

Michael, I'm thinking from your post that this is a standard 1/4" "Phono Plug" - a super common connection for audio gear of all sorts. The crackling sound is from the connection between the plug and the jack (being broken) and the amplifier amplifying the moments it connects and disconnects. If there were more power running through it like a high voltage, you'd could actually see with your eyes what is happening, but in this case, low power, we use our ears.
SO- Those input jacks are readily available at parts stores. You'll see that you can unscrew an input jack from the socket or hole it's in and replace it, connecting it all together again with a soldering iron.
If the plug itself is cracked (its plastic, right) and the wires are not connected internally, same deal. You can get that part all over and do the same thing. Connects the two wires the same way to the new one as they are in the old one.
Get used to this problem.....these input phono plugs and input jacks get damaged easily and often. There are better connections like XLR and others that won't break as often and actually lock onto the case, but with what you have, care, caution and an occasional fix are part of life.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/chad_65e28e99f5372e81

Where is the fuse located on a Crate GX-15?


make sure it's unpluged! then take out the chassis, and look for it on the circuit board. I don't think that one has one.

Amps have fuses inside. Check them if they are blown. After replacing, if it keeps blowing, then you have a short that needs to be fixed. Good luck!

CRATE GX- 212 HUMS WHEN TURNED ON AND CHIRPS WHEN SHUT OFF. NEED SCHEMATIC AND ADVICE TO ISOLATE THE BAD CAP IN WHICH CIRCUIT THAT IT IS OSCILLATING.


Witth an oscilloscope analyze the ripple voltage across C67, C70, C14, and C12. Pay close attention to the last two of these which are on +/- 15 volt lines.

The "chirp" when shutting down is LIKELY normal and would probably be from teh DSP effects unit as it goes down. The voltages go out of the operating range and the device essentially goes nuts for a second or so.
