My CFH is acting weird.


When I have a cable plugged into the input (no guitar) and one going out to my amp, it "wah wahs" the dead signal just fine.

However, if I plug a guitar into the other end of that input cable, it crackles and pops, with only a small fraction of the signal going through.

What's wrong? It's pretty dirty, so I figure something has some dust in it.

Anyone have any ideas? I traded a friend the bits and pieces of my old Warlock for it, hoping I could fix it. He said that if I couldn't get it working that he would take it back and give me 50 bucks for the guitar.

Please, help me fix this thing. It seems like an easy fix, and I really don't want to let go of the deal.

Replace the input jack on the guitar

its probably the cable or the input jack thats crackling. did you try using a different cable? also try tighting the nut around the input jack on the guitar

well it might be the cable, if it isnt the cable its a blown capacitor or something along those lines, ( im not 100% sure on the name of the part but someone will correct me) which would me you would have to open it up and wire it again, or if your friend had the reciept you could return it, and get a new one

It's not the cable or the input jack on my guitar.

They both work perfectly fine when used with another pedal.

EDIT: And I figured that if it was something like a capacitor that it wouldn't do anything at all.

It works fine as long as a guitar isn't plugged into it.

Input jack on the pedal most likely.

Can that be changed with a Soldering iron?

If so, I could take the extra output jack and replace it with the bad input.

sounds right when you think about, proccess of elemination, not guitar jack, not cable, works when not plugged to guitar, so a bad jakc in the wah is the best idea for the problem

That should do the trick. You might just wanna tighten the jack though, it might just be loose.

I've concluded that it isn't the jack.

There's a small black switch within the wah that allows me to interchange the two output jacks as either a wah output or a bypass output.

If I play through one as a bypass output, the guitar comes through clear. If I play through one as a wah output, it is staticy. I've alternated between the two, and they BOTH make the noise when set to wah output and they BOTH have the ability to function properly as a bypass output, so neither of them nor the input is the culprit.

I'm seriously confused now.

Yeah, I've tried several batteries.

What's this about a grounding problem? How can I fix that?
