Question about Line 6 Spider Iii 30
I have changed all cables and still not a sound. The amp was working one day.. then I plugged into the large headphone/record out jack on the right side by accident with my guitar and then turned on the amp. I dont think that has anything to do with my problem.. but thats what happened. I then plugged into the guitar jack and no sound. I have the Spider III Amp 30amp. Will a fuse do this?
First, do a reset on the amp by turning it off, then hold down the A (or clean) button as you turn on the power and hold the button for 5-8 seconds then release. If that doesn't fix it, I'd suspect the headphone jack itself. If it's rarely used, dust and crud can develop on the contacts over time and when you plugged into it the residue may have fallen into the shorting contacts and is now not allowing them to go back to their original position to route the signal back to the power amp/speaker. Try spraying the inside of the jack with a good electronic cleaner (don't go hog wild with it) then insert a plug into the jack a nuber of times. If that doesn't fix it, take it to the shop for a replacement.

No, probably NOT a fuse issue here (still lights up, etc.). Are you using the foot-pedal accessory? If so, then unplug it and go direct into amp. Try some headphone via the output jack (sound?) Yes -> GOOD. NO? -> Not so good. May require servicing. Also, check the guitar cord you're using. While unlikely, somehow it might have gotten damaged. Good luck!

MAKE sure you have it connected to a three wire circuit that has the ground. A lot of these style amps will buzz if they are left ungrounded.
Also search for sources of buzzing light light dimmers.
Further, power supply electrolytic filter caps are suspect.

After making sure your guitar cable is OK (they often cause the problem) check the inout jack on the amp. They often get broken by yanking cable sideways.

While it could be true that you're having a problem with the guitar or cable as the previouse expert suggested, to say that it can't be anything else is false. It could be a jack problem...it would only be apparant when the jack is making contact with a cable. I do think you should test it with another guitar and another cable but if that is not solving the problem then I bet it's a problem with the input jack of the amo itself or even one of the ionternal components (this is a digital amp and there are MANY components and settings that can trigger a problem like this) If the problem is not solved with a new cable/guitar configuration then it's time to take it to the shop.
