Long time Line 6 user started with the POD bean and have owned multiple L6 amps and POD floor boards over many years. I use to frequent the early boards a lot but haven't been on them for over 15 years.
Anyway, I purchased an L6 HX Effects unit last night and was having a great time with it for a bout five minutes when my amp quit. 7 years I've owned it and this is the first issue I've had. The power cord fuse blew (it was a 5A 250V) so I tried a 1A and 2A and they both blew as well.
I was wondering, based on the serial number provided, should I file a support ticket to see if maybe there are other options for me rather than just take it into a tech and pay a few hundred dollars to get it working again?
A bit of history: I traded for this amp slightly used from a dude that worked at a music store so he hadn't even registered it yet. He told me the amp came in with a smashed power tube and they didn't have a matching set of EH's so he put in and biased a matching set of Mesa Boogies they had in stock. I always found the amp sounded richer and warmer than my bandmates who's DT 50 head has stock tubes.
I only put about 10-12 hours a YEAR on this amp so it has under a hundred hours on it and I use a DT50 4X12 and sometimes a DT25 1X12 I have.
Any thoughts/opinions would be greatly appreciated.
