SOURCE: I did a hard reset on my Vetta II but it will not

I had to uninstall all line 6 programs and the do a search on my computer for any files that did not get deleted with the uninstall and delete them. After a cleaning of all line 6 products I reinstalled the programs and drivers for the midisport and got my amp reset.

I still can not use the program Line 6 uses to edit patches ( midi time out) . but I can get back to playing. I going to try to do all of the line 6 stuff on a computer I just wiped the harddrive on. that should clear all conflicts.

SOURCE: I don't know....


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.

SOURCE: on any channel I've begun to get a intermittant

If this has a digital effects processor read on.., I had a SIMILAR problem on a Behringer GX110.

The electrolytic filter cap for the 5 volts of the DSP effects had gone bad. The 5 volts was dipping when the DSP reset and it would repeatedly reset causing a clicking at about once a second. 50 cent part fixed it. The part is a little undersized electrically so is more prone to failure in the unit I have.

That particular one had the DSP as a seperate board with its own 5 volt supply from the main transformer.

SOURCE: no power to line 6 fbv express

Is it still under warranty?

If so take it to your local Line 6 service center.

Before doing any of this you may want to try another Line 6 amp. Could be a problem with the amp itself.

Fender Artist Signature Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster US13088442

A new serial numbering scheme was adopted toward the end of 2009 using the number "10" as a prefix, followed by a space, followed by seven digits. The "10" prefix was designed to identify the first year of the second decade of the new millennium, and while it appears on the instrument decals, it was not captured in Fender's operating system. Only the seven-digit suffixes were actually entered into the database. These serial numbers did not identify the country of origin in the body of the number. Instead, the instrument's country of origin appears on the decal on the back of the headstock, near the serial number.

This new numbering scheme was short-lived and was replaced only a few months later by an improved scheme that identifies an instrument's country of origin and year of manufacture in the body of the serial number.

This new scheme uses the letters "US" as a prefix to designate an instrument made in the United States, followed by an eight-digit number. The first two digits of the number identify the year of manufacture, (10 for 2010, 11 for 2011, etc.). The following six digits are the unit identifier, although it should be noted that these final six numbers are not sequential and do not provide any other identification information about the instrument. This new scheme is now used on the majority of U.S.-made Fender instruments, with exceptions including the American Vintage series and certain special-run instruments.

Why does my XT Live suddenly blast the volume and reset the wah pedal? tried factory reset but still does it! Annoying!

I would FIRST suspect that the power into the unit might have an intermittent connection. It would probably reset everything if the power momentarily breaks. Power jacks are NOTORIOUS for this problem.

Welcome to Fixya. It seems that there is a static on the device when it receives power. You can try to use a different power cable and see if that is the cause of the issue or the problem is caused bya bad system board of the device. This can be a hardware issue but we need to verify it first by doing the steps below.

Yeah I have an idea... It is likely static electric discharge. At this time of the year we get zapped touching metal things and it also drives electronics nuts... You don't even have to feel it to get zapped.

Try using in your bare feet and see if it fusses... We had a lady vocalist wearing those ugg boots and caused static pops in her microphone... anyway try the test and if it fixes the problem, then look up Staticide spray... You can get it at for example... spray floor in the area you are playing on to kill the static.

The only other thing is to check if wiggling the power input plug causes the problem. Those plugs are notorious for poor connections when they wear.

Pocket Pod wont turn on

MOST pedal devices ENABLE the battery when the INPUT audio cable is inserted (there is a switch on the jack it plugs into). This automatically connects the battery when you go to use it... ALSO if you leave the cable plugged in will DRAIN the battery.
