Hi!

I have a simple question that I hope someone can answer for me. I just need a sanity check before sending my Pod HD Pro back to the store.

 

The problem is that when I connect my jtv-89 to my Pod HD Pro using variax interface I get no power to the guitar. Using the battery with the guitar works fine and when I connect the guitar to a Pod X3 Pro (using variax interface), it also works fine. So, are there any special settings on the Pod HD that I need to set or something? I couldn't find any information regarding this in the manual but I just want to make sure I'm not missing something obvious. And yes, I've set input to variax.

 

Thanks!

/ Mattias

could be the cable try a standard cat5/cat6 network cable between the variax and the pod and see if that works.

Sounds like you got a bad Pod HD.  It should power your Variax over the VDI cable.  If your VDI works elsewhere it must be a defective Pod - lacking the power connection.

I tried a 2nd cable with the same result so I guess the Pod is to blame.
I'll mark this as solved as soon as I get some info from repairs.

 

Thanks for your answers!

 

Cheers!

may not be the pod etc... i'd inspect the cable sockets... could be a bent pin on either end... something simple like that...

usually happens on the variax side where a guitar plug was accidentally attempted to insert in the wrong jack.

+1 to Zap - I have seen this a few times as well.  You may want to try your JTV on a different HD500/X/Pro to see if it is getting power there, or a different JTV with your rig to ensure you are sending the correct piece of gear for repair.
