My parents bought me a used Fender FM65 amp. When I plugged it in and turned the volume up past 2 there was a hissing noise. I changed the cables and the guitar but once i turn the volume up the noise is still there. when i turn it onto the drive channel and turn the drive to 1 the hissing goes away until I turn the volume to 5. When I unplug the cables there is no hissing noise at all no matter the volume. Is the problem a blown speaker or loose connection or is it something more serious? Please help me.

its not the pickups because when I plug the only the cable in I have the same problem. I know its not the cable because it woks fine on my old amp.

I have the FM 212R and the only way I get feedback is if I stand close to the amp on the more drive channel and the volume past 3. I know you checked your pick ups and the cable but try a different cable and a different guitar and stand as far away as possible, it can't hurt. So if that's not it, I think It might be a loose input jack, does the cable jack wobble around in the input at all?

Loud hiss from a solid state? Man they'll try anything to sound like the originals these days.

If you're just gonna be a total ass and not actually contribute to the thread then don't bother posting...

TS: There may be something wrong with the speakers. I'm not completely sure though. I would recommend taking your amp to a tech but SS amps are very hard to diagnose unless its something thats blatantly obvious.
