Chassis Removal From Dt25 Head Is Stuck.

dt25 head chassis tube replacement

Best Answer Hoagie7 , 10 October 2013 - 05:47 PM

Thanks for the input. After looking it over one more time, I took a metal putty knife and wedged it under the chassis and broke the glue lose that was holding it and finally got it out. So just 4 screws on the bottom and glue from the covering held it in tight. Replaced all the tubes and bias and now it's better than ever. It even sounds better through the HD 500X now than it did before. Oh yeah, the crappy stock tubes where the problem. The one in V3 blew before I could remove it. Read where others had the same problem and re tube fixed it. Been playing for over 25 years and this is the best sounding amp I've owned to date. Love playing through it.

Ok. I have the popping, crackling noise, so I'm doing the tube change to JJ's.
I've removed the back panel, and the four screws from the bottom , but the chassis is frozen in place. Tried a little force, but afraid something will break. Shouldn't the whole thing come out the back by pushing the front? Anyone with experience here would be appreciated.

the line6 service tech does not recommend changing tube brands...

I think you also need to remove the screws in the handle.

Sounds like it was a success. Try to let us know how it holds up in the long run.

I mostly play at home and my own music which is more of a bluesy Jazzy Rock mixture as I'm still learning how to play guitar so when I post a reply to try and help give ideas you know where I'm coming from. In a nutshell I'm always learning and having fun doing it. Rock-On!! Oh, and if I don't respond promptly I'm probably playing guitar or my computer locked up from multitasking 'cause I'm using Gear Box, HD500 Edit, Audacity and tab filled browsers all at the same time, Hahahaaaa. Surprisingly enough my 'puter handles the load more times than not.
