line 6 flextone lll amp.volume level drops after a short time of operation.seems to work great on initial startup then the volume drops off.any ideas.voltage regulator,output chip.also the delay lights went out.when i got the amp the delay worked and the volume dropped off.i did a factory reboot by holding down the a and d buttons on power up now the delay lights don't work and i still have the volume issue....thanks...ed

I WANT TO BE ABLE TO TAKE THE CIRCUIT BOARD OUT OF AMPS WHEN I WORK ON THEM AND BE ABLE TO POWER THEM UP FOR SIGNAL TRACING WITH AN OSCILLOSCPE AND NORMAL MULTIMETER TESTING WITH THE BOARD OUT OF THE CHASSIS SO THINGS ARE EASIER TO MINIPULATE.WHAT  EQUIPMENT DO I NEED TO ACCOMPLISH THIS.THANKS!

anyone have any ideas what is wrong with my hartke gt60.it plays perfectly and is dead quiet till you turn up the reverb knob.when the knob is turned up any amount at all the amp gets a loud hum in it which gets louder as you turn the reverb knob up louder.i tried putting a shorted 1/4" jack in the input and foot switchable reverb jack and it didn't help. i also reflowed any solder joints that looked like they might be bad.i also noticed now that the amp is not switching channels since i took it apart for the second time(bad switching transistor?)amp stays in dirty channel.does anyone have a schematic for this amp or know where to get one as it would probably help me alot....thanks...ed

The Newcomer's Forum / roland gr20 guitar synth static hiss noise!
« on: July 21, 2010, 06:15:51 PM »
here is a tough one . i know this is an amp forum,but i am having a problem with static crackling noise in a gr20 roland guitar synth.you can't get a shematic from roland for it.i'm not sure where to send a signal into the midi connnection so i can signal trace with an oscilloscope.anybody had a simular problem or have any ideas.the unit works great in all other areas. it just has alot of noise.the guitar and pickup works perfectly with another unit.the midi chord is good and there is a new input board in it and it didn't make any difference. don't see any cold solder joints.....any help appreciated.i thought this would be my best place to get a fix for this unit.as i have delt with this site in the past and rate this site as the #1 elcectronics knowledge base on the net!!!....keep rocking....thanks...ed!!

any ideas! i have a fender fm65-r amp that plays for about an hour then it turns off for about 10-15 seconds.then it starts up playing normally for a bit then cycle off and back on again.like a computor loop.when it starts up after quitting it starts low in volume and gets louder as it comes back to normal playing volume.just like an amp that is initially turned on.i replace 2 transistors as they were getting hot to the touch. i thought they might be leaking,but guess that wasn't it.do you think it might be an output chip?anyone had this problem with this model?how do i test for a bad chip.i have a signal tracer ,scope ect.i replaced a 1013 and c 2383 which are larger in size than the other chips on the board.thanks...ed!!!
