XDR-95 Transmitter (XDT4) Totally Drops RF Signal...
by deanplmr on 2012-02-01 13:35:46

Hello Line-6 Customer Support,

I own an X2 XDR-95 Wireless Guitar System. Recently, the RF signal from the transmitter (XDT4) has been completely dropping off (or is not recognizable by the receiver) during performances. There is no noise or other anomalies happening - it just dies and goes away completely, and the XDR4 rack-mount receiver loses all telemetry; the green battery status LEDs on it's front panel go totally dark. Basically the RF signal is either gone or the receiver is no longer recognizing it. The LEDs on the transmitter continue to light and flash normally. This occurs on a totally random basis and installing a fresh new battery does not affect nor correct the problem. Changing to a new frequency channel also does not affect, improve or eliminate the problem. Distance between transmitter and the receiver antennas is usually less than 10 to 20 feet. This is a new problem that has never happened before suggesting that some internal circuitry or component malfunction has occurred. Turning the transmitter unit off than back on again restores normal operation for a while, but then the same thing happens again. Turning the receiver off then back on has NO affect - the RF signal is never restored unless the Transmitter is reset suggesting the receiver unit is OK.

Please advise if I can obtain a replacement circuit board set for the unit and the costs involved as my unit is no longer in warranty. I have an ESD safe electronics work bench and all necessary tools at my shop, so I can make my own repairs if the board set is provided. My unit was originally purchased through MusiciansFriend.com.  Thank you!

Hi Dean

Info about board replacement is beyond the capability of this forum.  Please use the "contact us" link at the bottom of the page to get in touch with the parts department.

You might try one other thing first.  Are you certain that the transmitter and receiver are locked in the same "mode".  If not you could experience problems similar to what you describe as well. http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-1344

Absolutely! The XDT4 and XDR4 are both in the "high bandwidth" mode as shipped from the factory. Never would I have changed it and accidental button presses that might change channels or modes are unlikely due to the care I exercise when using the product. And the sound of this system is amazing when it works - but then it just dies randomly.

I will contact the parts dept. as you suggest to request a replacement board set. Thank you for the help!
