Spider 3 150 hd malfunctioning?
by creeping-death on 2011-09-19 21:13:11

Hello there,my Spider 3 150 hd seems to be broken or malfunctioning,I will list the problems below :

- LCD flickering,fading and sometimes vanishing...mostly on the tuner it does it most.

- Dips in the sound of the amp

- Sometimes the amp will have no sound at all

- Sometimes there will be a very low clean sound (I saw someone else with this problem in the forums before)

It is definatly the head that is malfunctioning. I read that it could be a malfunction caused by the FBV pedal?

I have done several factory resets,but no luck. It is definatly the head,and it is definatly in some sort of trouble.

Thanks.

I await your reply.

Ian.

I'm not that familiar with the Spider 3 can you do a firmware update (via FBV/USB/Monkey)?

Is it still under warranty?

You will probalby need to contact your local service center..

Good thought, but unfortunately you can't update the Spider III.  You can do a factory reset by holding down the Channel A button at the same time as you power on (same as the Spider IV) but that's it

@creeping-death

If you suspect your FBV pedal or Ethernet cable try running the map for a while without connecting either and if the problem goes away then the problem is either the cable (easy to swap out to check later), the FBV or the FBV socket in the amp.  If you can isolate it to one or other of your devices with a bit of elimination, you may be able to resolve it - and if it is the Ethernet cable that's at fault that's an easy fix .
