Typically all the knobs have to come off... the nuts on all the jacks have to go... Sometimes there are small screws through the front that have to be removed... some of these are found around XLR type connectors.

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:

On clean channel when 'channel volume' is adjusted, the sound cuts out, goes completely dead. I have to switch to another channel and back again or switch off and back on. The amp seems to get confused!


When it is working, wiggle the channel volume control WITHOUT rotating. If the sound cuts out, likely the soldering of the pot leads is broken where it attaches to the board. Try resoldering the connections.

SOMETIMES the control is damaged in which case it must be replaced.

The volume control is not working... even when the volme is "off" it is still on


Chances are the resistance element in the volume control has broken. This is COMMON if the control knob gets smashed some way.

A less common thing would be broken solder where the control is soldered to the circuit board. This would be obvious once the board is accessable.

Servicing involves removing the chassis and replacing the potentiometer.

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.

High pitched squeal when the input jack is used.


Sounds like your master volume is turned up too much. The channel volume will make the squealing go away(caused by high gain and humbuckers). The best thing to do is dial in your favorite presets and change the channel volume to the correct level with the master volume where you usually keep it. I use my Spider Valve at master volume at about noon and the channel volume between nine o'clock and noon. Let me know if this does not solve the problem......

I have a broken Master volume peg.


Most do pull off the plastic part of the knob that is, then behind that is a nut that is holding the actual pot.
