Weird laser like sound coming from my plug in

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by IAMERICCOCHRANE, Jan 16, 2004.

  1. I plugged in my old Ibanez yesterday that I haven't played for about 5 months, and it made this strange laser-like sound after a few minutes of it working fine, then it just shuts off. If I adjust the plug it works again, but will do the same thing if I barely move it.

    What is going on? Thanks in advanced.
  2. Do you have anythings in the room that could be causing this? IE, and remotes being stepped on, stuff like that?
  3. oops I forgot to mention, I dropped this bass on the plug in on the street while in marching band a few years back. That could possibly be a reason...

    Could it be the battery dying? I've had some scary moments with my Pandora running on batteries when they died.
