I got a very sweet deal (next to nothing) on a used POD 2.0. The guy I got it from told me
"it didn't work," but since I was handy with repairing things, I decided to take it anyway.
The behavior is as follows:
It powers up fine, seems to go to the last selected preset, and recognizes input from my guitar, meaning I can use the tuner just fine. The problem is that there is no output whatsoever, from either the phones jack or the left or right outputs.
This unit did not include a power supply when I received it. The aftermarket one that I purchased
is input - 120VAC, output - 9VAC 1500mA. It is not the official Line6 model, but it does output AC and not DC. Because it didn't have a power supply, I can only assume that one of the previous owners (at least two different people) tried to use an incorrect power supply at some point.
Most everything on the board looks okay - with the exception of some dull looking joints for the power plug. Any idea on how to proceed from here? I am semi-experienced with surface mount components so I can replace stuff if necessary, but I'm a newb with troubleshooting unless it is something painfully obvious. I'd really like to use this dude for recording since my main amp is out of service at the moment.
