    Did you put a new battery in it?

    Yeah, I would do that first. Also, be sure to check your cables for loose connections by plugging them into a circuit tester or by trying a different instrument through them.

    If that doesn't work, then my next guess would be that the input on your bass may be loose and need to be tightened up. If you don't feel comfortable doing that yourself, then I'd suggest taking it to a pro.
