Pignose amp problems

    My speaker just stopped producing all sound one night. I was using the headphones, pulled out the headphone jack and it just stopped working. No sound at all except for maybe when I turn on the amp. Ever since it arrived at my door, it sounds like something is loose inside the amp when I move it around and it sounds like it's getting a big out of control now since I've been gigging. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    I made a video if you have no idea what I'm talking about and I'd be happy to post it.

    Suggestion #1, take it to a tech.


    If You're capable and comfortable in opening a wall voltage device, and are knowledgeable about things like draining the PS caps, open the amp up and diagnose the problem little deeper.

    Sounds like the circuitry that defeats the speaker when the headphones are used is working all the time.
    Assuming of course that the headphone out still works.
