Click/pop recurring noise on Spider II
on 2012-01-10 07:45:56.2450
My Line 6 SpiderII 150 is making a funny (well... not so) noise. All volumes to 0, no input (it's even worse with a guitar plugged in. Please check the attached audio file, for example at 18s, 23s and 29s.
Anyone has an idea? It seems to be linked or implying ONLY the power (dual TDA7193) stage (taking the output from the headphones does not produce the same noise/problem).
Thanks for your help; please copy email@example.com in your answer; I am not too often on the forum.

Nove having a line6 repair center near enough, I didn't have too many options.
I thought this could be just a bad solder (happens quite often in electronics).
I eventually decided to take the amp apart (that's only six screws) and I reheated all solder bumps (adding a little solder sometimes) on the power board and the electrochemical capacitors (throughboard) of the preamp/effect board.
Took me overall 1/2h and everything is now working fine after re-assembling the amp! No hiss buildup and no cracking/pop noises anymore :-) .
I'm not saying everyone should or can open their amp and get to reapair it.But in my case, one of the solders was obviously weak and the resulting bad connection was creating the problem.
Hope this helps,
