  1. I use my Pod HD500 with my DT25 combo by using the L6 Link connectivity. It works fine, but recently I decided to add a bit more complexity to my rig by incorporating some other pedals into the signal chain. I have a C.S.E. Rasputin Fuzz, which supposed to be like a Big Muff on steroids. I tried opening a fx loop block so I could run it in front of the amp, but it creates this unbearably loud static when I turn the stompbox on. Even with the fx loop block turned off, it still makes that awful noise (while the pedal is still on). I unplugged everything and just did guitar>fuzz>amp, and I didn't get any static. I know that high-gain pedals do make a bit of noise, but it seems to amplify when I just plug it into the effects loop of the Pod. Any ideas?
  2. Okay, I just tried to operate it in safe mode by holding the 4-way directional pad to the left while turning it on and it started working! I don't know what happened, but it's back to normal now. Thanks for your help!
  3. Not yet, but like I said, that's what I'm going to do next.
  4. I've had my unit since late 2011. It's been working fine since then, until 2 weeks ago. I was just adjusting an effect on one of my presets when it suddenly became completely unresponsive. The entire device turns on with flashing tempo light and everything, but the screen froze completely and I can't get a sound out of it. It's still stuck on the same setting, and it doesn't seem to register anything I do- pressing buttons, footswitches, turning knobs. I've tried turning it off and on several times, updating it via Monkey, and finally just letting it sit for about a week to no avail. I opened up the back and found something that looks like corrosion on the circuit board near the guitar input. I've attached a photo to this post. I don't know for sure if this has anything to do with it, but I thought it looked suspicious. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? I don't know if this happened because of age or if I somehow overloaded the processor or something. I guess the next logical thing to do is contact customer service, but is there a chance I might have to get a new Pod HD500 entirely?
  5. I noticed that on the new pod hd update, they have a new vox ac 30 amp model (fawn normal and fawn bright channels). I know there's obviously some difference between that and the original ac 30 model on the pod, but I have no idea what the difference is. Anybody know what "fawn" means?
