Well i got this amp 2-3 years ago, and it has served me well in the time I have been using it. Recently however, the FX has turned permanent and I can't turn it off no matter what. I still have the footswitch, but the FX button on that broke within the first 6 months. Is there any way i can disconnect the FX completely? Or something like that?

And I'm broke as a joke, so a new amp, or getting it professionally fixed anyway, is kind of a problem. Any ideas?

Well....it's a solid state. When they break, the only thing you can do is get a new amp. Sorry dude.

hes right. a tube amp would be easy to fix if u know what ur doin, but digital effects, forget about it. go out and buy a new, (better) amp...

Haha, I like the sound of the amp, the quality of the amp itself is garbage though.

I obviously already tried turning them down, and I'd sell my right foot for a tube. I guess I'll just have to save up. Thanks for the advice.

No problem!

Oh no....don't tell me....

Your MG is stuck on the CRUSHING OVERDRIVE, isn't it?

yeah, try out some smaller tube amps too, tubes are much louder than solid state...i cranked my valve jr when i first got it...bad idea, 5w tube can crack a window!

I take it it's out of warranty then?

If it is you could open it up and have a look inside, you might see a cheap simple component that's obviously faulty or some bad soldering that you could fix. You might also see nothing but looking's free so

If you look inside and take pictures you could post them here and maybe get more help that way.

Its going to be in the digital part of the amp. Something thats going to be very difficult to diagnose without the proper equipment. And even then fixing it could be a serious problem if even possible. Try work around it if not then start saving money.
