  1. This older post seems to describe my issue a bit: https://line6.com/supportarchivenew/thread/12118/ I think I may just try replacing the thermal paste first.
  2. I know this is 5 years too late but for me this was because the pot went bad. Replacing the pot fixed it.
  3. Just ordered a hybrid Joy amp to try that with. I don't see why it wouldn't work but I'll put an update here after I give it a try.
  4. Hi, With all this time on my hands, I'm trying to bring my ax2 from high school back to life. I have a basic understanding of electronics and I feel comfortable soldering but by no means am I an expert. Issue : After playing my guitar through the amp for about 5-10 minutes, the sound starts to crackly and pop, dropping intermittently in volume. In general, shutting it off and starting back up seems to bring it back to a working state. Theory: I'm guessing possibly an issue with the LM3886TF amps. Since it seems to take time, after it's been running for a bit, it could be heat related. When I opened up the amp, I could tell that the heat goop had been replaced/applied in a sloppy way. The Serial number is EI4xxxx so I think it's one of the later models that doesn't have an issue with the transformer. Since there are two large circuit boards inside the AX2, is there a way to isolation the one with the amplifiers for testing? Thanks in advance for any help. -Corey
  5. Hi, I might be interested. I'm trying to rebuild my AX2 I used in high school. Do you still have it? -Corey
