How to reset line 6 spider 3 15 watts


Turn the amp off. Hold down the A (or clean) button as you turn on the power and hold the button for 5-8 seconds, then release.

My Line 6 Spider III 30W amp just quit on me. I know the speaker works, I know my guitar and chord work, but the amp doesn't. The amp will power up and all the lights will work, I can press the different...


Test the amp by touching the tip of the cord you unplug from the guitar and preferably try it with a second cable as well. If at high gain you don't get a loud hum, best to take unit for service. If it hums, then check battery in your guitar. The battery in the guitar is enabled when a cable is plugged in and MANY forget to unplug the cable from the guitar and have a dead battery within a day and blame the amp. This applies to most guitars that have preamps in them... there are some that are "passive" that do not have a battery.

My Line 6 Spider II 210 won't make any sound from the guitar. When the amp powers on, the speakers pop a little so I know they are connected right. All of the lights are on and the channels can switch...


Bad soldering, especially around the jacks and plugs. Crack in the circuit board. Bad switch contacts on the headphone jack... all these are first things to check.
Here is your service manual for the unit:

Line 6 spider ii. As soon as I turn on the power I get a huming sound. can not adjust anything. The only sound is the hum. Could it be a transformer problem! much appreciated


Not a transformer problem... this is likely filter capacitors, rectifiers, and PROBABLY a bad amp chip. Service this before it wrecks the speaker.

My line 6 spider III 15 watt amp isnt working properly. i turn it on but i get this sound when its connected to the guitar. it sounds like when a guitar is not connected to a guitar and the guitar cable is...


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.

What causes your line 6 spider amp to turn on and off while using


This MAY be due to overdriving the amp. The single chip amplifiers used in these have thermal protection usually and will cycle on and off if you drive it too hard. This is a tiny amp and is for use as practice and is NOT suitable for heavy use. Most of these use chips like the TDA 2050 and MANY of them have VERY substandard heatsinks and often don't even use thermal conductive grease under the chip.

If you want loud, then you need to step up the size of amp you are using to say a 100 Watt one that is designed to take the power.

I have a spider III 15W amp that has worked for a year. plugged in last night and it's getting power but no sound. Not even a hum from the speaker. checked everything and it's definitely the amp....


Try disconnecting the speaker from the amp with the amp unplugged from your power. Never work on an amp when its plugged in unless you know how dangerous it is. Check for resistance across the speaker terminals with a volt ohm meter to see if you have a blown speaker. Thats the first thing to look for. You should here a hiss or a low hum when your amp is on and you plug a guitar cord into the input without the guitar. Check those two things first.
