Did i destroy my amp? :(
by demonshredder on 2012-12-19 20:25:41


i have a line 6 spider 4 amp 75w.

i recently tried connecting it to my computer via internet cable which as a cat-5 cable (straight to my computer)

which now i know is a big mistake!!

my amp smells like something is burning and

when i turn it on it just makes crackly sounds.

The display screen lights up but nothing shows on it.

Did i destroy the amp or is there a fuse or something that has blown?

any help would be great.

because i am in a country where there is know line 6 service centres.

You could try a factory reset - hold the 'A' button in while turning on the power, hold it in for 5-8 seconds.  If this does not work, then the only thing you can do is send it to a service center.  Unfortunately, you have probably damaged the digital signal processing unit.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
