  1. Hey, so my DL4 cut out the other day and I've opened it up to find that batteries have exploded and leaked acid all through the pedal. The circuit is pretty burnt and it won't start at all. I've only ever run it off a line 6 official power supply. And am always super careful with the unit. Has anyone else had any problems like this? Also, being based outside of Europe, or the USA. There is no number or emailing address for me to get in contact with line 6 about the issue. If anyone could shed some light on where I can get in communication about customer support, that would be fantastic! Love the DL4, I just want to get it revived :(
  2. I bought a JTV-69 through amazon and it arrived with two DVI interfaces and cables and a charger but no battery. Is this normal? Am I supposed to get two cables and no battery?
  3. I think I accidentally threw away the paper that came with my JTV59 about the charger. I went to charge my battery last night and wasn't sure if it was charged this morning or not. I figured the light would turn green when charged. It was blinking when it had been on steady last night. How do I know that the battery is fully charged with this charger? Thanks. Just got my JTV59 last week and this is the first time I have charged the battery.
  4. I just bought a Pocket POD. I know it says not to use rechargeable batteries, but has anyone tried? Does it harm the unit? It seems to me that the only issue would be that Rechargeables have a different discharge curve than alkaline batteries, but that would at worst shorten the use between recharges. Thoughts?
  5. Hello. I have a JTV89 with POD500. I have problems with the guitar when I want to use the battery. Without the battery everything works fine. With the battery I have no sound. The charge indicator indicates a full charge. I connect the guitar with different cables but nothing changes. As soon as I remove the battery, I found the sound. I tested the battery on another machine and it works. I do not know what to do ... Thank you for your help! Chris (sorry for my bad english)
  6. Hi, First, let me apologize if this has been addressed elsewhere. I searched the forum for an answer to this question, but couldn't find one...hence this topic. Basically, I'm wondering if a variax 500 can be upgraded to a rechargeable lithium ion battery like the JTVs. I own a JTV 89, which I love. However, I also have an opportunity to purchase a like new variax 500 for a song. I'm thinking the current battery situation with these old variaxes are an issue. Therefore, I won't purchase this guitar unless I can ascertain whether or not the current battery set up can be converted to the new rechargeable lithium power source as with the JTVs. If this is feasible, please post any documentation, tips, tutorials, etc. Thanks so much!
  7. The repair shop lost the AC adapter for my JTV-69 battery charger! (In addition to only fixing the modeling section and not the magnetic pickup problems). Anyhow, does anyone know or can you put a multi-meter on the output of the AC adapter that plugs into the battery charging cradle and tell me the voltage, polarity and estimated current draw? Thanks!

When using a freight company to transport your gear, we suggest that you disclose to the freight company that your guitar has a Lithium-ion battery in it.
  10. Q: How much battery life should I expect with my XDR95 transmitter? A: During our in-house testing of alkaline battery performance, Kirkland, Energizer and Ray-O-Vac brands showed the best results. There are various test results available online that confirm this information. You should also be aware that there are black-market knock-offs out there that look “real” but fall short of the original manufacturer’s specifications. Line 6 digital wireless products now include Energizer batteries as others have not been performing up to spec. That being said, you should expect the battery life in the XDT4 to be between 5.5 and 6.5 Hours. Digital wireless technology has its own set of power demands, but as we develop products, we keep in mind the need for power efficiency. There is a big difference between 10 hours and 5 hours, but please remember the sound quality and benefits of the Line 6 digital system when compared to analog wireless. Q: Is the battery used in the receiver of the XDS95 overridden when using the AC adaptor input? A: In the current design, the battery is not overridden. What this means, is that if you plug in a power adapter to the XDS95 while there are working batteries in the receiver, the battery life will be drained in that configuration. Just make sure to remove the batteries if you are using a power adapter with the receiver. Q: Can I use rechargeable batteries with my Line 6 digital wireless system? A: Yes, but the specs on rechargeable batteries is all over the map and changes every time a battery is charged and discharged. In order to create and offer consistency, we have designed Line 6 digital wireless products to be used with standard 9V alkaline batteries. This way, we can predict and report battery life remaining with accuracy and translate that data to the battery meters that are included on Line 6 digital wireless components. Our knowledge of how consistently rechargeable batteries will work with the Line 6 digital wireless systems is limited. The rule of thumb is: As the battery remains above 6.2 V, it will continue to function. You may want to contact the battery manufacturer for further details. Q: What power supply should I use for the XDS-95 system? A: The Line 6 DC-1/DC1-G power supply will correctly power the XDS-95 system. Q: What power supply should I use for the XDS-plus or XDR95 system? A: the Condor 500ma power supply (supplied with the unit) or Line 6 DC1-G will power either the XDR Plus or XDR95 systems. Q: Where can I find more information on the power supply requirements and purchase a replacement/spare power supply? Power Supply, Amp Power and Battery F.A.Q. Q: Will my XDR95, XDS95 and XDSPlus work with 230/240 volt power? A: Yes, as long as the power transformer converts to 9V 500mA (For XDR95 & XDSPlus) and 9V 100mA (for XDS95) it will work. Our non-U.S. distributors sell 230V to 9V 500mA transformers. Q: I have a pedal board that distributes power to all my pedals. Can my XDS95 receiver share power with devices? A: Yes. Your XDS95 receiver only requires 9V 100mA, but the device will draw only what it needs. On pedal boards that share power with multiple devices, a device may not always get all the power that it needs. If power is being shared with other devices and you start experiencing any issues, dedicate power to the XDS95 and see if the issue goes away.
  11. Q: Is the Variax a MIDI guitar? A: No, the Variax is a real guitar, and the guitar does not send MIDI signals. All of the sounds available in the Variax start with the actual string vibrations of the Variax itself. Our proprietary modeling process shapes the raw string signal to replicate the sounds of the modeled instruments. Q: What type of cable can I use with the Variax? A: In order to use the supplied XPS-DI direct box/power supply to deliver power to the Variax, you will need to use the supplied 1/4-inch TRS cable or equivalent. If you use the internal batteries as your power supply, any mono 1/4-inch cable will work. Q: How do I know when it is time to change the batteries? A: When the batteries have lost their charge the indicator light will continuously flash, and the audio may become distorted or intermittent. Q: Can I use rechargeable batteries in my Variax? A: Yes, although rechargeable NiCad batteries will not last as long as alkalines, as they deliver substantially less current. Rechargeable alkaline batteries would be a longer lasting choice. Q: How long will batteries last? A: The average life of a set of 6 alkaline AA batteries should be approximately 12-14 hours. So-called 'Heavy Duty' (carbon) batteries will usually last less time. The 9-volt battery should only be used as an emergency power supply and will last approximately 1-2 hours. To help insure the longest possible battery life, be sure to unplug the 1/4 inch jack when not in use. Q: How is the Variax different from the Roland VG-8 or VG-88? A: The Variax is self-contained; all of the sounds come from inside the guitar itself. The models were specifically developed for the body resonance and transducer of the Variax for the highest possible accuracy of modeling. The VG-8/88 is an external processor that is connected to a guitar via a separate hex pickup. With the VG system, variations in tone may occur due to the guitar the pickup is attached to, and the specific placement of the pickup. The VG-8 includes basic amp modeling and effects in addition to its guitar modeling functions. With the Variax, we concentrate on the guitar characteristics only and can deliver a much higher degree of accuracy and detail. Q: Where is the Variax made? A: The Variax was designed entirely by Line 6, by experienced luthiers, engineers, and industrial designers. The Variax was originally manufactured in Korea but now is manufactured in Indonesia and China and assembled in the U.S. Our Variax guitars are made world-class facilities with the latest computer-controlled manufacturing equipment. The manufacturer prefers to remain nameless because of its relationships with other guitar companies, but they are building the guitars to Line 6's specifications. Q: Can the Variax be run through any manufacturers' effects devices? A: Yes, the Variax will work with any manufacturers' effect devices. Batteries in the Guitar will allow you to connect to Line6 and third party effects processors and wireless systems. Q: Can the Variax be used with a wireless system? My wireless transmitter does not have a TRS plug, will it still work? A: As long as you are powering the Variax with batteries, you can use a wireless like you would on a regular guitar. The TRS cable is only needed when you are using the power supply. Q: Does the Variax work with only Line 6 amps? A: The Variax works with any guitar amp from any manufacturer, but Line 6 amplifiers may have special proprietary connections for the Variax instrument. Q: Will the Ebow work on the Line 6 Variax? A: Yes, it will work fine but remember that it won't get loud over the magentic pickup because it is a piezo pickup. Q: Can I feed two amps from the jack of my Variax guitar using batteries and a y-splitter cable? A: No, the Variax jack is not a "real" stereo jack. The Variax jack does use a TRS plug, but the "sleeve" portion of it is used to transmit power rather than audio. The TRS cable is not required if you are using batteries. Q: Is there a Variax Electric reference sheet available? A: Yes there is, although not an official Line 6 document. Your collegue Line 6 enthusiasts have created several documents that will give you an overview of the models inside your Variax. You can download and print them for your own use. Download it from Vettaville and scroll down the page for the different documents Q: Is it possible to produce feedback through an amp with the Variax? A: Yes. Since the sound from the Variax starts from the strings, blasting a lot of energy into the strings by standing in front of a loud amp will produce feedback. And since the Variax uses a piezo bridge instead of conventional magnetic pickups, you won't get microphonic squeals.
