After several years and hundreds of gigs, my G50 went wonky. If I hit the strings very hard it transmits but cuts out. It happened after I changed batteries. So far I have switched out cables, switched batteries, tried locked mode, high and low output and changed channels. It's like it has a hard gate on it. I have full green bars. The signal light on the transmitter and receiver only light when I really pluck hard.
G50 Problem After Years Of Use

Sad to report, my devilish friend...
...That it would seem an input stage has suffered a meltdown or fracture of some sort.
If funds allow, I'm thinking that it will probably end up being only marginally more expensive to replace the entire beltpack http://www.sweetwate...e/detail/TBP12G than parting with your hard-earned to merely refurbish an aged article.
You will, however, almost certainly need to configure a new replacement beltpack to operate in the RF1 scheme that's most likely the one your receiver is still running, as set out in this paper from the Line 6 Knowledge Base:

Funds allow. But why, pray tell, would I throw good money after bad? Why should a wireless apparatus last not a score of years if well built? If my history prevails, I should be whipped in the public square should I again wager, (for wager it is), the family proceeds on such an endeavor. The Pod Pro, a paperweight. The AX212 a very heavy paperweight. The XT Live, alas, another brick in an ever increasing pile of Line 6 gear that no longer functions and defies even the lowest of resale prices.
I've learned well to lick my wounds regarding Line 6 products. I thought they could not possibly mess up the wireless division they purchased that was already so well developed. I was wrong. I've been wrong a lot with Line 6. I shall not be wrong evermore. Goodbye Line 6! You've been a pox upon my house. I shrug you off like the cold. May your fortunes follow you.

I purchased the Shure GLX-D. From what I've read, I feel rather fortunate the unit worked as well as it did for as long as it did. I also feel fortunate it failed when it did as I was seriously contemplating purchasing a JT Variax. I feel I've dodged a rather expensive bullet. I haven't been on this forum in years and I see little has changed. Time is a funny thing and I'm a forgiving soul that I hope has finally learned his lesson. Au revoir, arrivederci, adios, adeus, la revedere, ade, tot ziens, hejda, and goodbye. I shall darken your digital door nevermore.

My G50 transmitter started to cut signal when playing with low volumes. I´ve been searching the web and it seems that other eople have had this problem also. I´ve tried different channels, new batteries, setting the transmitter to low power setting..nothing works..it kind of acts like there is a noise gate in the signal chain. What should i do Next? The thing is I bought the set from US in july 2012 but I currently live in Finland and of course the warranty has expired. Should I send it in to be checked out?
