  1. Line 6 24-12-0001 - 24-Step 25mm Encoder The rotary encoders under the display are worn out and need to be replaced. In a radioshack in your area look for "24 step encoder w/25mm shaft" like the one shown in the photo above, they cost very little. Have the replacement work done by someone who has electronics technician skills unless you are capable of doing it yourself. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  2. IMO most likely the copper core inside the wire is broken, I assume in the area where the wire is usually most bent, i.e. near the plug that goes into the POD. If the power supply LED always stays on, it means that it works fine, but its wire conducts current only occasionally when the two broken ends make contact with each other. If the problem is the wire I suggest having it replaced, or shortening it a little on the plug side and reattaching the plug from there. But unless you are capable of doing the job yourself you will probably spend less buying an alternative and compatible power supply like the following which has the same specs as the original DC-3G: UpBright 9V AC/DC Adapter _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

  4. I suggest connecting the POD output to the RETURN (PWR IN on your amp) jack on your amp. By doing this you completely bypass the preamp (and all its controls) of your amp and use only the power amp and cabinet of your amp. Make sure the POD's 1/4" OUT switch near the pedal is set to LINE (since RETURN inputs typically expect LINE type signals). As regards the setting of the POD output mode for the above configuration, in theory the most appropriate one to choose would be COMBO POWER AMP but if you are thinking of enabling cabinet emulation (if you really need it since you already use a real cabinet) in your patches perhaps you might prefer STUDIO/DIRECT. Note that patches created for a certain configuration will never sound the same when any element of the configuration changes. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  5. Basically you need to use the 4 cable method, usually explained for combo amps (i.e. with preamp and poweramp combined in the same unit) equipped with FX LOOP like in the above picture. The only difference following the 4CM scheme in your case is that your preamp and poweramp are separate devices, and therefore you have to use the output of your preamp and the input of your poweramp in place of the amp send and amp return respectively in the above scheme. Here is an article about the 4CM already written on my site dedicated to POD: 4 Cable Method _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  6. I don't know if there are any for Mac (do a search if you want), but for PC there are programs (for example: Dexpot, free for personal use) capable of creating multiple virtual desktops, each with customizable resolution. The idea would be that moving the POD editor window to a second virtual desktop with lower resolution would have the effect of zooming it, while the other objects that remain on the original desktop would remain the same.. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  7. Can you describe what problems you are having? _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  8. I remember a similar problem caused by a certain firmware version. Installing the new firmware fixed the problem. If you can, save your presets to your computer and then try using the Monkey app to update your device, finally do a global reset and reload your presets.. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

  13. The POD XLR outputs can only give a MIC level (i.e. low level) signal and for this reason must be connected to MIC-ready mixer channels, so the resulting volume can be as expected and not low. Instead, the 1/4" jack outputs can give a signal either at LINE level (i.e. high level) or at MIC/AMP level (low level) depending on the setting of the dedicated switch near the pedal. So in this last case, depending on the selected switch setting, they must be connected to mixer channels set up for LINE or MIC. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  14. The reset procedure (link here: After POD HD500X/500 Flash/Re-Flash/Update: MANDATORY Global Settings Reset! ) does not delete the presets already present nor does it add the factory ones. What it simply does is reset all general settings, including setlist names, to their default value, but without touching the presets. The only way to delete all the presets present and replace them with the factory ones in all the setlists is to answer "no" to the question asked during the firmware installation which asks if you want to keep the presets currently present. If your POD still works after installing the firmware, it means that you've completed the process correctly. Tip: To avoid BSODs, avoid setting POD as your operating system's audio interface and instead use the own settings of the programs you want to use POD as an interface. If you absolutely need to use POD as an operating system audio interface, first shut down your computer and then unplug POD. And also, after closing all the programs using the POD always wait a few seconds longer before finally disconnecting the device from the USB to give the system more time to reorganize its drivers actually in use. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  15. The USB firmware is part of the device flash firmware and cannot be downloaded and installed separately. It is normal for the device to show V0.00 for USB on its display until the device is unplugged from the computer. As soon as you connect it to your computer via USB the actual USB firmware version should finally be shown. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
