Check out my GATORHEAD Line 6 G10 Receiver fix for the USB breaking power design problem/issue.
My story began many, many years ago deep in the FUNK of the back woods bayou of Louisiana where I wrestled this massive 3.5 foot GATOR who is now a permanent fixture on my newly "FRANKENSTEINed" Line 6 G10 receiver.
The rest of the story went as so. I originally purchased the G10 unit and originally enjoyed MANY gigs with it UNTIL one dreadful day when I bent the XMTR post from throwing my BASS around on stage much like a clown who juggles in the circus will juggle their pins, and the unit no longer worked. I then proceeded to order and receive the news. XMTR. I unfortunately did not get 1 more gig out of the unit as the USB input broke on the receiver during the middle of the 3rd song of the 1st set.
I was ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATED.
I have now received yet ANOTHER replaced/purchased RCVR, and I am EXTREMELY pleased, proud, and stoked to introduce to you my newly reborn, modified and "FRANKENSTEINed" GATORHEAD G10 RCVR 9VDC power mod.
Unfortunately I couldn't find the smaller voltage converter to make it all work in 1 self contained unit so that is why I used the old shell as well to make it all work. As you can see I DEFINITELY had some FUN with it. #LAUGHOUUTLOUD #FULLYFUNCTIONAL
I am going to ALSO order the breakaway magnetic usb mini connector so if I ever want to use the USB input on the RCVR for firmware upgrading I can and there won't be any undue stress put on the female input/connection. CHEERS......
