It could be anything:
Bad cable
Bad jack plug on either the guitar or amp
Bad tube in your amp
Wiring problem
Blown fuse

Just to name a few, you'll need to give more information if you want somebody to help you properly.

Not expecially helpfull.

Are you sure it isnt your amp/cable.

Unlpugg your guitar touch the end of the cable see if you get loud hum when you touch it. That way you can single out the amp as not being the problem.

Its most likely to be the wiring from the input jack/plug if it is the guitar, open up the guitar check for lose wiring if you notice any, put it back where it goes resolder. Its easy to do.

Electric guitars are basically circuit boards. So the problem is electrical; Loose contact, soldering broken off, crossed wires... But get a mates guitar and try it through your gear -first- to eliminate the possability of it being your stack.
