SOURCE: I don't know....

Hi,

As you know, when you plug in your headphones, the amplifier cuts the sound to the external speaker, routing the signal through your headphones instead.

When you accidentally pulled the headphone plug from the jack, it apparently damaged the jack, which has the relay attached that routes the sound to your headphones.

Replace the jack, and everything may be OK. I say may be, because the jack is attached to a circuit board in these line 6 ampllifiers, and if you have damaged the circuit board, you will have to send it to line 6 to be repaired.

The downside is if it is not under warranty, it is an out of pocket expense, and Line 6 will not even give an approximation on how much a fix will cost. I have gone through it with Line 6 in the past, so I am very aware of the procedure. It is also a limited warranty, and they may not cover this particular damage.

However, if you are straight with them and they feel obliging, they may fix it under the warranty, if it is still active on your amp.

I had a spider 2 x 12, which was switching between amp models by itself, and they told me that because it was not under warranty, that I might want to consider NOT sending it to them, and just buying another amp. I didn't like that advice, because they seemed as though they didn't care about retaining my business.

Now, something to consider is taking it to a reputable amp repair shop (preferably one that is Line 6 authorized), and see what they can do. Maybe your clip is just bent, not allowing it to spring back from the contact switch that cuts off the main speaker. It could be a very inexpensive fix, but you need to have a shop actually take a look at it up close and personal.

Good luck. I, for the most part, enjoy Line 6 products, and their excellent distortions. Just remember, their amps tend to have a LOT of problems. You can find sites that list many many dissatisfied Line 6 amp owners. All that electronics (on board effects, soft buttons and switches, etc.,) make them vulnerable.
Now I mainly use my old reliable Marshall 1/2 stack with my Line 6 pod, as well as quite a few other pedals.

You would be amazed by the fact that you can still get pretty good money for a broken line 6 amp, maybe get something with less bells and whistles to break, and go with off-board effects pedals and processors.

Please excuse me for adding my own opinions, I am quite well versed in this type of advice having grown up in a luthier / guitar shop and have been playing for 38 years.

Good luck with everything, and if all goes right, adn it is just bent, it may cost you as little as a few dollars to fix. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.

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.

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.

I've had my marshall mg 50dfx for 3 months and it doesn't sound right to me because the overdrive is just barely different to the clean channel and doesn't have as sharp as sound as other mg50dfx models


Play around with your placement and where you are compared to the amp. I have a line 6 spider jam and I was getting pissed everytime I went into guitar center b/c theirs had more bass than mine. Then I realized that I put the amp beside me when I play but I play infront and over it when I go there. Have you ever noticed how much gain you lose when you take it outside compared to in your room. I would just look up the owners manual and see if you are missing anything. Check the fuse in the back too. If you clean isnt "that" clean and your overdrive is sucking then maybe the fuse is on its way out. Only $1 problem though. good luck

Spider III makes a high pitch sound when I plug my cable into the input slot. It won't stop and it keeps echoing.


If your guitar is not connected and the cable alone causes the oscillation, I would certainly question the QUALITY of that cable.

Poorly sheilded cables can pick up ground loops.

If you short the contacts of the cable at the guitar end and that stops the oscillation, I would try a higher quality instrument cable. MAKE SURE the cable you are using is an INSTRUMENT cable and not a SPEAKER cable which I can guarantee would cause the problem.

The Line 6 amps are NOT noted for reliability so I would NOT let that oscillating conditipon persist for any length of time.

Do NOT use excessive gain at the front end,,, use higher master volume and less front end gain if you are having ground loops.
