Hey guys,

i wasn't sure where to post this so sorry, i'm having trouble with my guitar, i played earlier today and all was well, i then had a short break, came back and no sound was produced. i tried unplugging and re-plugging my amp, trying differant cables, removing my wah pedal ( i only have the 1 pedal) and yet all i get is buzzing from my amp because i have the volume so loud trying to hear it. could it be the cable jack? i'm stuck, any suggestions of what i could do would be much appreciate it and thank you for reading.

it's okay, volume is full, i don't think it's the cable because i tried two and neither worked, the amp is still getting power aswell because the lights are flashing and i can hear it when the volume is turned way up, sorry i didn't mention these things before.

could be a loose jack socket on the amp?

check the fuses, if those are fine, then take it to a tech unless someone here has any other ideas.
EDIT: If you have a friend who plays guitar, ask to borrow his and use that to check it


sorry for my noobieness, how do i check the fuses, and thanks i have several and that's a good idea.

Plug your cable into the amp, do you find when you touch the other end of the cable at the tip it produces a humming noise?

If so that would rule out problems with the amp.

If its your guitar, more than likely its a wire has come lose from the input jack. Open it up, its an easy fix with a £3 soldering iron.

^If the fuses were blown the amp would not turn on at all full stop. So dont listen to that guy.

yeah i think it's the input jack on the guitar, i think i'll ask my dad to fix it as he's an electrician and a guitarist. thx everyone for the help.
