  1. Hi guys, I've had a DT25 head and DT25 extension amp for almost 6 months now, and was lucky enough to get the pod hd500x for christmas. I've been loving it. But a couple of days ago all of a sudden I started to hear a sort of popping noise. The popping noise gradually got worse and now there's regular screeching noises too. It's like nails down a chalkboard. I'm not even touching the guitar when this happens sometimes. After talking to some people it sounds like it's the valve or valve stage in the head(?) Anyway, I've been checking out the Line 6 warranty, and I've been trying to get written proof from the retailer of my date of purchase. The retailer has offered to help, and have told me to get the head bundled up and they'll arrange a courier. (and yes, all they said was "help", they didn't actually say "try to fix" or "replace") I'm just pretty sceptical about doing this when it's still under Line 6 warranty....albeit I can't actually prove that at the moment. I would just love some advice!

    Screeching/popping Noises From Dt25 Head/amp

    Hi guys, just wanted to thank you for all your help and advice. Tubes have been changed, and the offending noise seems to have disappeared. Hurrah. I did run into a couple of issues whilst biasing the tubes; The meter I used only had settings for 250m or 100m. The guide said I should be using 200m. I couldn't get any reading at all whilst in A/B mode. In A mode I got a reading of 9.0 for both valves (I tested it twice, once in 250m and once in 100m. Same reading both times) So I decided not to adjust the bias at all, considering I wasn't in the right mode etc, and it did seem to be balanced. I've just been playing for a good half hour and everything seems fine....maybe a slightly louder hum, but that could be my imagination, or the new tubes.

    Screeching/popping Noises From Dt25 Head/amp

    Ok, thanks guys. Seems like quite a daunting task lies ahead then. There seems to be a wealth of info about doing that on this site though, which is a relief. So that's the 2 power tubes I'll need to change?

    How To Connect Hd 500x To Dt25 Rig?

    Hello! Apologise for the n00b-ery of this question, but I'm really struggling to get my head around it. I already had a seperate DT25 amp and head. I'm now trying to work out what outputs etc I should be using to link them all. Should I be using the L6 Link between the POD and the head? Or does the POD render the head pointless now? I'd love any form of explanation! I've never really worked with anything quite as complex as this before!
