my pod has developed an unwanted, light distortion; even on completely "clean" settings. I gets worse and really unbearable when I add several effects. Doesn't happen everytime I use it. I have cleaned all connectors, checked cables, amp, and guitar; they're not the problem.

Any suggestions?

I would back up your patches and reflash it.

My Pod X3 had this problem and it wound up being a cold solder joint with the input jack. I had to open the unit and re-solder the joints. I've had to do this several times. The unit is in a non-stress environment and that input jack is just plan crap.

I love my Line6 gear, but the downward trend in quality has hurt their image in my mind.
