  1. Hi Kirblam - Sorry I don't have a solution for you...but thanks for posting your description of this issue. I have the same (or very similar) problem with my PocketPOD. Back in Sept 2014 I posted my description as: it's two syllables "Tah-acK" with a hard T and a hard K. Very often it starts when I hit a note on the guitar (send a signal to the Pocket POD), it produces this metronome-with-echo-like "tah-ack" sound which then constantly repeats (even after many efforts at changing settings; powering off-then on etc). Eventually I give up and use other pedals. Sometimes when I turn it back on the "tah-ack" sound is gone, but then it usually comes back a while later. I bought the unit new - though it's definitely out of warranty. Now it is December and I just successfully used the POD for about an hour with no problems, but I'm afraid it's a ghost and will be ba-ack. -R
  2. BillBee - Thanks for responding and you may have hit on something with "possibly over loading the input." Clipping is a good descriptive - also it's as if the little bean has the hiccups that just won't stop. I have noticed that when I change a setting like increasing the volume on the guitar or cranking up the drive on the POD, it goes into its conniption. Maybe my '77 LP is throwing off a mean signal... Most of the time the clipping continues even after restart, running the factory reset routine, and all other attempts while holding my mouth just right. When it does go away for a while, it's always after I've turned it off/pulled the plug - but that's hit or miss and mostly miss. It happens on all varieties of settings...it's random. Anyway since I've got your guess on the "overload," I'll try working it with kid gloves and see. I'll probably give it to a friend at work who has newer guitars and is familar with Line 6 PODs. Once again - Thank You BillBee !
  3. Ok it's just a Pocket POD but here is my issue. If you say the word Tack like I do (Southerner with just a touch of Northerner), it's two syllables "Tah-acK" with a hard T and a hard K. Very often when I hit a note on the guitar (send a signal to the Pocket POD), it produces this metronome-with-echo-like tack sound which constantly repeats. At that point I usually turn off the unit. Sometimes when I turn it back on the tack sound is gone, but then it usually comes back after a while. I bought the unit new - through Sweetwater; it's definitely out of warranty...so in your opinion is it just a failed electric part, SRAM, diode, resistor...and I should just toss the thing and look for a better product?? Thanks for reading…and considering the problem!
