Hi everyone, i am in desperate need of a quick `fix` here as i have several gigs coming up, i will explain best i can as to the problem and hope someone can help as Line 6 themselves cant!
This has happened 3 times now in the last 3-4 months : ( usually at the worst possible times) I have the SV 212 Mk2 40w Combo and use the FBV shortboard Mk2 .
I have ABCD patches set up as Clean/Crunch/Distortion/Lead ,(i have several banks setup in a similar way with different sounds and it affects them all), the problem is sometimes the Distortion channel loses its sound, not totally, just the distortion, i am left with basically a `bare` sound ( slightly crunch) and i think there is a loss in volume too, the distortion sound just disappears, and the other channels suffer too although the clean channel not so much ( but does lose clarity) ........ hard to say how i manage to get it back, as i shut alll down, unplug everything, restart, the usual routine when theres a problem,.....this dosent `fix` the issue though as it can takes several attempts and sometimes not at all. Strangely if its left alone for a while and i fire it up it seems to be ok. The issue isn`t always there as i have done several 2 hr gigs since the problem started without issue and other times it has happened before ive even really started to play anything.
I have a new CAT cable so thats not the problem.
The problem seems to appear even at lowish volumes
I have seen another user in the forums whos problem was like mine, ( who i have tried to contact), and there was a reply that it may be the valves ( valve!?) Could this be the case?
Its very erratic therefore i am reluctant to send to Line 6 as it could spend weeks on a test bench without the problem arrising
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
