Orange Crush PiX 12L not working

Post by masyraf » Thu Sep 06, 2018 5:05 pm

Its been a long time since I've used this amp. I put it under my table all this time. The last time I used it was working fine. Now it doesn't work properly. I can turn it on, the led lights up but no sound. But if I cranked the volume, gain and overdrive to max, there is sound when I strum the guitar. But its just a sound, not the sound of the notes that I played. And its not a humming or buzzing sound. It sounds like a guitar being strum in a low volume, but doesn't correspond to the chords or notes that I played. When I plugged in a headphone however, there's no sound, not even if I cranked everything to max. I checked the fuse, checked the components, nothing burnt. Warranty already expired 2 years ago. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Is it possible it was stored in a humid environment?

Are you sure your guitar or cable isn't the issue?

Can you try another guitar / cable with the amp, or can you get sound of the same guitar / cable with another amp?
