fender princeton chorus problem

Posted by EJ on Sat, 04/28/01 - 05:29:45.

i have a fender princeton chorus amp that has serious electrical issues. sometimes it won't turn on when run through fully-working extension cords. if it's plugged into the same outlet as our PA amp, it causes a terrible hum in the system. and there's a vicious hum when my electro-harmonix memory man is plugged into it (the memory man works ok with every other amp i try). we've even had a shock or two just touching the metal screws on the casing.

i don't know jack about electronics. any clues?

Im no electrical wizard but sounds like you have a short in the wiring probably from bouncing around when traveling.......I have a princeton chorus also thats got alot of hard miles with very few problems......so go to a pro........ and Ill bet its a really cheap fix
