Re: VIP 2 suddenly silent

I think we may be bumping up against my skill level now if we're testing capacitors with an eye on replacing one. I've soldered maybe 50 connections in the last 50 years and few if any were pretty. I'd have no idea now where to get the proper capacitor either. (Radio Shack and the local Sparky's are...

Re: VIP 2 suddenly silent

Pins 7 & 8 show about 18V

Pins 1 & 2 show squat. Nada. Zip.

The ground pins show near 0 ohms resistance.



So, I'm not getting that 8V supply.

Re: VIP 2 suddenly silent

That's a lot to ponder and plan. Thank you very much!!
(Not sure I'm up to this level though.)

Re: VIP 2 suddenly silent

I sent for a new Amp board from Full Compass and installed it. Reassembled it and tried it out. It worked beautifully! Nothing wrong.......for two weeks!! Then it failed in a new way. This time, all the lights went off and the speaker started making a soft pup...pup...pup sound. So, I'm thinking may...

Re: VIP 2 suddenly silent

I took it to a repair guy, and he verified that the headphone jack was not the problem, but could not offer a new path to investigate. Any ideas?

Re: VIP 2 suddenly silent

Googling Peavey and support brought me here. I found no other site helpful.

Re: VIP 2 suddenly silent

Tapping on connectors and tiny phones plug box with plastic pen produced no crackle from speaker.
Wiggling the phones plug produced no sound from the speaker either.

Connected speaker to alternate source, and it responded, so I don't think it's burned out.

Should I just purchase a new amp board?

Re: VIP 2 suddenly silent

The picture was from the web. From the Full Compass website, where you can buy a new board. Though I exposed the boards, I didn't disconnect anything, leaving everything in place.

This one is mine, still in place. I don't see any hotspots either.

Re: VIP 2 suddenly silent

And by "exercise" you mean wiggle the wires? While it's powered up to see if the speaker pops a bit?
The connectors are buried beneath glops of caramel colored rubbery goo, that seems hard to remove.

VIP 2 suddenly silent

I'm playing through my VIP 2 in my small studio, not too loud, enjoying the sound, when the amp suddenly falls silent and all the lights go off! I turn it off, turn it back on, nothing. I unplug it and inspect what I can. Looks OK. I plug it back in and the lights start cycling through a demo. (noth...

Vyper 2 USB recording with Mac

I can't get a strong signal from the USB connection on my Mac into Garage Band. I can't get any kind of signal from the USB connection on my Mac into Pro-tools. Pro-tools is running through an M-audio breakout box, and I can't find any way to change to a USB source. I tried Garageband out of despera...

What is Revalver?

I just received a Vyper 2 for Christmas, but it came with no manual.
It did come with a CD owner's manual, but the CD won't mount on my computer.
It looks clean and unscratched.

Where do I go from here?
Is there a downloadable PDF file or something?
