Check your battery. A weak battery will recover a bit when you power down for a brief period. Strumming hard will overcome the weak amplification when battery is down. Check that your battery is at LEAST 8 volts.

Also verify your plug into the guitar is clean. The barrel of the plug shorts to the ring contact to connect the internal battery. Do NOT use a balanced TRS cable for your intrument as this will lead to a marginal condition.

The chords i strum dont show on display or sometimes the strum bar dont match up

are you in "A" _ 440? digital tuners are set in a440 as a default. if your playing chords and are down half a step. Or improperly tuned (ie: your intonation is out?) I assume you are playing guitar? then it would have trouble picking up proper signal. - if this answer doesnt help. try more specifics. what are you playing ? what display are you referencing. etc. Good luck!!

Peavey special 112 solo amp cuts out.

Unfortunatly, there could be a few different causes for this and without the amp in frony of me it would be impossible to diagnose it. The best bet would be to have a qualified repairman look at it. Here is a link to the Peavey Contact page which has a link to their service centers.

Ok, i love the tones on this amp, but for some reason, i start to play, not even on at a high volume, just like at a nice level, ill play it for like 5-8 mins and it will shut off, like the power is still...

This is a tiny amp good for practice at low volume levels. You are likely overdriving it and the power amp chip goes into thermal protect. If you volume level is much louder than a small boom box, you are driving it too hard. Best to get a bigger amp.

I bought aline 6 variax Acosutic 300

The variax models the sound of the pickups or microphone sound of various instruments. You should be able to hear the sound changing as you rotate the model knob. To get the best out of it you should try it with a line 6 floor unit which matches the pickup sounds with the right amp sounds. I think it could be quite subtle, but have a listen to the acoustic guitar sound then compare with the strat sound and the banjo sound and you should be able to hear the difference. I would love to have one of these guitars by the way!!! I have worked in the studio with a Danish pro guitarist who now only takes this on a session.

Have Line 6 Variax 700 6 String Modeling Guitar and the "A" String has a buzzing/humming coming thru the amp. This is in all model positions and alternative tuning positions as well. Have tried changing...

The frequency of the A string when in tune is 110Hz.

What you are hearing is actually 120Hz which is the second harmonic of the 60Hz power frequency. It would be hard for you to distinguish between 110 an 120.

Try this test: Bring something that produces a reasonable magnetic field such as a wall wart power adapter that is powered near your pickup... Then you will be able to see that you are picking up stray magnetic fields from your environment.

Humbucker pickups attempt to quash such pickup by winding the pickup so stray magnetic fields cancel in adjacent coils.

Some pickup CAN occur on your cord and also in an amp.

If you leave your cable unplugged from teh guitar you are LIKELY to pick up some of this hum... The second harmonic pickup is COMMON when devces like full wave rectifiers are driven by transformers in the area.

Have a Line 6 Variax 300. Start to play for around 10 mins. It cuts out. Leave it for a while then is ok. Any ideas what it might be and where can I get it sorted. Hywel

Sounds like it is overheating and protection circuit cuts it out.

Try putting a fan on it or driving it less hard.

I have a variax 700 modelling acoustic guitar, On occations it just dies ie,no power or sound. I disconnect everything plug it all back up and still nothing. If I leave disconected for an hour or so...

I don't have a Variax but it sounds like an IC (integrated circuit) inside the guitar is getting hot and until it cools down, it does not function properly. Try the Line 6 website to find the nearest repair center. Good Luck!

After hour of playing the amp starts the effect popping sound

there is an open connection, most likely right off the input jack ,causing this issue. Resolder it or retension the jack connection.
