This is most likely an internal wiring/component issue. The only tangible troubleshooting I can offer is to try re-installing the Firmware of the amp, but there are quite a few steps involved (one being that you need an SD Card under 2GB). Here are the instructions to do this, if you wish to pursue it: http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-4778
If you do end up trying this and the symptoms persist, the root cause of what you're experiencing is deeper (at the hardware/component level). This would necessitate a repair tech's involvement to open up the unit and troubleshoot/fix the problem. I can get you in touch with the Line 6 UK Service Team, if it comes to that. Please let me know.

I think if U use a noise gate, U can eliminate buzz & static. It will always come back when your playing but that's what gives you the "real deal". Right? Think Jimi' or Link'! U gotta have that in there but only when U want it there, right?
