Corrective Action required immediately for Relay G10, Relay G10S, and Relay G10T wireless products purchased prior to March 2020.
Several instances of extreme overheating and a risk of fire presented by the Relay G10T wireless transmitter have been reported since the product was introduced in 2016. All instances of overheating reportedly occurred during charging.
In March 2020, Line 6 issued a “recall-to-repair” with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The recall to repair is designed to prevent overheating and the risk of fire, and simply requires users to install a firmware update. It takes about five minutes to complete this process.
Many users have still not updated their units so this Safety Alert is intended to raise awareness of the issue and urge owners who have not yet done so to be sure they have the latest firmware version. The latest G10T firmware version is 1.06. Please be sure to update your transmitter if you are not on this latest version.
Additionally, and not a safety matter, Line 6 has determined that certain Relay G10T units with the earlier versions of the firmware may not charge optimally within warm environments. The latest firmware version also corrects this issue.
Units sold after March 2020 were already updated to the latest version and require no update. However, if you own a Relay G10 purchased before then, and have not updated the firmware, please immediately update your unit to prevent the risk of overheating.

Additionally, the Line 6 Relay G10T USB Charging Cable (an optional accessory not included with Relay G10, Relay G10S, or Relay G10T), which may be used to connect a G10T transmitter to a powered USB port, can also contribute to extreme overheating in the transmitter. The Relay G10T USB Charging Cable cannot be repaired and the concern cannot be remedied by a firmware update to other Relay G10 products. If you purchased a Relay G10T USB Charging Cable, please discontinue using it. Owners of the cable who provide satisfactory proof of its destruction will receive a refund.
