Sv Hd100 Help ... I Got Nothing!
Posted 27 May 2013 - 04:23 PM
When I power it on, the screen is half black and half blank. The board reads "FBV SB MKII". No sound, no presets. It is staying this way.
No power surge, nothing through the loop & tubes look to be OK (they are old tho), all are lit and seated properly. Amp was sounding fine and I have never had an issue with it before. I bought it new (original owner) and I treat it well.
I don't know what to do and none of the techs around here are really familiar with hybrid amps.
Is it simply a bad power tube or am I in trouble? HELP. Thanks in advance.

From reading the old message board it appears that this issue is a symptom of a problem with the digital side of the amp (it was often referred to as “The Black Bars of Death”). If the reset doesn’t work (or isn’t possible) the only other option is to bring it in for service.

I called them. They were very helpful. The tech did mention the reset too, but my issue turned out to be a faulty ethernet cable for the Short Board. Whew . . . I was getting real nervous. Thanks toneman & Line 6
it's strange how this worked for you then the problem returned. i'm guessing you repeated the steps you took to get it working.
give it a good rap with you hand when you turn it on
I'M SO HAPPY!
