Okay, so I am sure there has been a post about the poor design of the battery door on the G30, somewhere. I just havent found the right answer.
I love the performance and reliability of my G30, so much so that a few of my friends have also purchased Line 6 wireless products. I noticed when I first used it, the battery door seemed like it was bulging out, almost like the batteries were too big. After a few months, the battery door gave way and during a performance, and the batteries spilled out. Awesome.
I have resorted to taping the door shut, which is a hassle because this unit goes through batteries regularly.
My question... Is there a design improvement for this? I notice the same scenario on new units, but maybe they have been on the shelf for a while.
Will Line 6 stand behind this design flaw? I realize I have waited a while and could have sent it in sooner, but I used it constantly and procrastinated.
It would be nice if they would allow this to be exchanged in some fashion, or post some sort of fix other than wrapping the unit with tape.
There's no excuse for poor design.
If any part of the unit needed to be beefed up you would think it would be the part that got the most workout since batteries have to be changed or a regular basis.
The only thing used on a more regular basis would be the on/off switch.
I had problems with the battery door on my Samson wireless and was at least able to order replacement doors and they were easy to replace.
Since the door holds the batteries in place the unit will not work properly if it's a peice of junk.
Come on Line 6 fix this problem and help the people out who bought your product in good faith.
It's becoming a trend with Line 6 to sell a product and than taking forever or never fixing a flaw in workmenship - software or hardware wise.
I like my Line 6 stuff but how many complaints need to be filed before they fix issues that are design or manufacturing flaws?
What good is a great sounding product if something like a defective battery door keeps you from using it?
Or worst yet be performing on stage and having the batteries drop out on the stage floor?
Surely that type of problem should not be happening and Line 6 should be rushing to find a fix and I don't mean using freakin' duct tape!
