Loose connections in the internals. Crank that sucker open and check for any wires not completely soldered
#5
yeah I checked that, and it seems they are all soldered pretty good...

perhaps a crack in the copper wiring in the pikcup (very unlikely) maybe send 2 guitar tech

I will try to take it to a guitar shop. I think its really weird that it still has sound, but its just lower...its almost like if the pickup selection switched..

I noticed something else right now. well when I have the volume at around 3 it is still silent, but when I put it at 10 it sounds like its on 5 or 6...its like if it took away the last 4 to 5 volume things...I dont know how to explain it, just that at its max volume its actually like at 5 or 6, and anything before 4 doesnt sound...

It's an internal wiring problem definitely, either dodgy soldering, mucky pots or a faulty component like the switch.

hmm. ok thanks. it looks like my volume knob is quite loose, and when I put it all the way it sounds around as loud as the other pickup at 7.

have you checked the input? mine did that a couple of times but when i screw the input in a bit (for the guitar) and it works fine again
yup its a sig... yeaaah..
#18
Most likely either the pickup switch, notoriously unreliable on epiphones, or a bad pot/solder joint.
...Bleep Bloop...
#19
ok I found the problem. the pot things were touching the walls and it was creating some interfearece, so I moved it, and now it sounds the same as it used to!!!! yeah. thanks to all...
