Its a marshal amp and it fell backwards, now it doesnt work! It turns on but all you hear is a really loud bass hum and theres no way to get rid of that, the inputs dont work only the headphone jack all i can do is turn it on and off. How do I fix this, the amps not mine

You probably killed the tubes.

....If it is an MG, you just did the guy a favor!

mg?

killed the tubes? So unrepairable? or do I gota go replace them, if so how much do you think it would be.
#6
Could you just tell us what model amp it is?
If it's MG, your probably screwed. If it's a tube marshall, it may be a tube problem.

You mentioned a headphone jack so its most likely a solid state amp, meaning no tubes. My guess is that you broke a loose connection inside the amp. You should find an amp tech or someone good with electronics to help fix it.

Is it yours? Or someone else's amp?

It's a park g30rcd. Sorry.


You just said it was a Marshall?
Anyways, make sure everything is connected well inside. Most likely, you jarred something out of place when it fell over.

Sum bitch musta feel pretty hard to make it change brands!

Your amp is a shapeshifter! It was a marshall, now it's a park.
Thus, give it an hour or so and wait to switch from "broken" to "working".
That's all there is to it.

Just make sure everything is connected and report back.

Someone elses :s
How much would this cost if I brought it to a local music store?

Tell who it belongs to that its broken.

It might be worth it to just replace it, but you can ask around your town for repair costs.


It is a marshall btw.

Park by Marshal! :P

I looked inside, everything looks ok I guess, I dont know what its supposed to look like in there, but every wire looks soldered proporly, nothing loose.

I'm screwed?

Oh... I seee...
Well, try fooling with the reverb. Make sure the reverb tank is well connected to the amp.

I took out the reverb and it works in my other amp, and the amp was still not working when I turned it on without the reverb. I barely know what I'm doing so I dont know if that helped or means anything.
