I have a small 10w solid state practice amp that stopped working, the speaker is fine, but the sound is really faint, what's wrong with it?

You should take it apart and really mess around with it when its plugged in, totally safe.

I know the speakers fine because when I turn on the overdrive, I hear it faintly.

Do you have the volume up on your guitar? Is your patch chord good?

You mean the input cord, I know I'm stupid.

The cord works fine on my bass amp, which I resorted to playing through.

If you can't fix it, just leave it be. It wouldn't be worth fixing. Save up for a new amp.

Well if the volume knob on your guitar isn't at 2, then you sir have a potential issue. If it isn't your cable between the amp and guitar, it's likely the amp. I never fixed a SS amp so I can't guess at costs.

Don't really try, ain't worth it.

Just grab your 12 gauge, a handful of slugs, and go to town on it!

Most low price SS stuff just aint worth fixing. Unless its something glaringly obvious and easy to fix. But finding a bad chip or what ever could be difficult. I fixed a SS bass amp somebody gave me but only because the problem was pretty obvious. One of the pots was broken away from the board and I had a replacement pot to try.
#17
when my 2 day old mg10 died, first it sounded really faint.

we opened it up and had to replace two pots to get it to work.
like said, usually not worth paying anything to get these things fixed, but if you want to learn how to, then it might be worth taking apart for fun.
