    DT50 Intermitterend no sound

    Dear all, In front of me a DT50 guitar amplifier. The problem is that the unit works fine for minutes or hours and then plops and starts to hum at 50hz. The result is no sound. The tubes are goed and they stay on. After some searching i found the +5Volt_pot is gone. You can find it next to the digital volume chip MPC4241T. Further investigation tells me that the power comes from the voltage regulator U1 so this might be the problem. After some extra tests this was not the case. The voltage regulator is fed with 9,5Volt by the diodes 1N4002: D26, 27 28 and D29. D27 was defect and sometimes lost conductance. After spraying with cold spray it started working again. I changed them with new ones (i replaced all of them) and the voltage regulator to be on the safe side. Now it works again. Hope this may help others. (picture shown power supply section with diodes removed.

    DT50 No Sound

    About 6 months ago a friend asked if I could re-tube and bias the new tubes in his DT50 amp, once he bought the tubes. He said that the amp was making a crackling sound and he had not had the tubes replace since he had bought the amp 3 or 4 years ago (I believe that was the timeframe). I said I could do that for him even though I'm not an amp repair tech but I do have an Electronics Technology degree and had done the same on my Carvin amp last year. He finally got around last week to bringing me the amp and new tubes but now said there was no sound at all coming out. Hopefully replacing the tubes would do the trick, he had both the power tubes and preamp tubes. So I replaced all 4 of the tubes last night but still no sound, sort of. Here is what I have observed. All of the new tubes 'light' up except for 1 of the preamp tubes (V4??). The preamp tube furthest from the guitar input, farthest to the right looking from the front of the amp, does not light up at all or even get warm. I warmed the amp up for about 30 minutes and I rotated through all of the switch settings (Class A / AB, Pentode/ Triode, the 4 amp switch settings, above Pentode/Triode ), still the tube does not light up. I can get a very small amount of sound to come out if I turn up all of the knob settings to 10, including the channel volume and Master volume. I cleaned all of the tube sockets before putting the new tubes in place. I ohmed the offending preamp tube socket pins, front to back, and I'm getting continuity. I also checked the 2 on board fuses and they are good as well as the power fuse on the back of the amp for grins, it's good as well. The output transformer is cool to the touch, not sure if it gets warm or not. Any thoughts as to what might be going on? Any help is appreciated Thanks
  4. Directed at those in the know, obviously, but with the upcoming L6 Link integration with PowerCab+ and the DT25/50, I'm curious as to whether we'll be able to mix the two? i.e. DT25 gets left signal, PowerCab+ gets right signal? I suspect the answer is probably yes considering that I believe something similar was possible back in the HD500/DT/StageSource era, but a definitive answer would be awesome.
  5. Hello, I have a DT50 112 and HD500X using L6 link. I am struggling with understanding the best way to use this setup. L6 Link, 4 cable method or just direct to the amp. Right now I am using the Plexi bright pre amp but I feel i'm not getting the same sound as I do direct into the Amp with the same model selected. ( USED the DT50 EdiT software to assign a Pexi brite to channel A and JCM to Channel B. signal chain - EP silverburst into G70 wireless > out to Tc helicon Correct XT into the HD500X. BAd Horsie II wah in the effects loop of the HD500X. Digital cable out of HD500X to L6 link on the Amp. Reading forums, it seems it might have something to do with routing and settings. Not sure what I am doing wrong but it just doesnt have the punch that the Amp has? Need help. AC DC.5xe Covers.5xe 80's Rock Covers.5xe
  6. Hello, I didn't got replies from the DTedit author, so I post the link to the OSX version I've compiled today of his brilliant software. Some tweaking was necessary, so we must give a try and return some feedback. On my systems, win and mac, dtedit was not working. I've added a sysex identifying request after any Control Change message sent, and this works for me. I will try to compile the same code for Win32 very soon. Let me know! Flavio Ronco Torino, Italy.

    By Any Chance....

    I absolutely love my DT50... but of curse I fear it will wear eventually... By any chance could this line be revived? I would probably by at least 1 or 2 more head units with cabinets.
  8. Hi All, Firstly apologies if this has already been covered. I have had a DT25 and POD HD500X for a year or so and am struggling to get a good setlist together. All I really want is a classic 4 patch setup, clean, crunchy, heavy and lead. I love the sound of the DT25 on its own but am really struggling to find a great setlist with the two devices combined to the point where I'm wondering if I should sack the POD off and just start from scratch. It would be a shame as the POD is so versatile. Anyway, If anyone has any tips or advice id really appreciate it. Cheers Rich

    Helix with DT25

    Okay, I just bought a DT25 to run with my Helix. I did so to get a variety of options and have tubes pushing the power amp section of my rig. I am running it in 4CM and the Helix tones are as expected and tight. When I create a patch with the DT in the mix I am having issues on the effects at the back side of the amp. All my effects before the amp (Phase, Flanger, ETC) work great but my delays and reverb effects after the amp are not. YES they are turned on and I have played with the volume and control settings on the effect to no avail... Any thoughts????

    Loud pop noise

    Hello, today i was practicing at low volume and jumped out of my bench when i heard a loud pop sound coming from the speakers(?), i tested every switch after i heard it, everything seems to works, power valves seem ok, the amp seems to be working fine... But it can't be nothing right? Help? Im kinda worried, spent my savings on the amp secound hand and i don't want to brake it..
  11. So I think I might know what it is, but I accidentally left my amp on when I left my house for vacation, when coming back a week later, the amp wouldn't power on. I found that the tube fuse was just fine, but the main power fuse was blown, so I got a replacement fuse, replaced it, blew again, I have 3 line 6 cabinets, all different speaker configurations, so I tried another cabinet, and the fuse blew again. What I think is, that the transformer is going out, but I see this might be a common thing for this amp? I mean, lets be honest I, ME, MYSELF left the damn amp on for what could have been a week, and it could have blown something. But if someone could point me in the right direction for troubleshooting, or where to buy a replacement and I can just do it myself? Thank you! Hetrickaj
  12. Hello I'm actually trying to use the SEND/RETURN option on my DT50 Head with my BOSS GT-6. My goal is to use the GT-6 only for special effects (Preamp and distorsion/overdrive disabled), and keep the preamp stage og my DT50 Head active. So I think with the 4 wires method we have : GUITAR (output) -----> (Input) GT-6 (Send) ------> (Input) DT-50 (Send) ------> (Return) GT-6 (Output) -----> (Return) DT-50 It should insert the effect this way : Guitar signal ----> DT50 Preamp ----> Effect ----> DT50 PowerAmp But I noticed : 1-The Master Volume rotary has no effect on the volume 2-The Chanel Volume rotary has no effect on the volume 3-All Channel parameters rotary have no effect on the signal (DRIVE, BASS, MEDIUM,TREBBLE, PRESENCE, REVERB) Is it normal, or am I missing something ? This is a really bad news if it is the expected result as I would have like to keep the good sound of my DT-50 but just add some effect to it. Thank you for your help.
  13. Before I describe my problem, I want to point out that I have read about latency and popping on the DT50 when changing topologies. I think my problem is more severe than normal, and I have done my best to describe the issue and how to reproduce it clearly below. Products involved: POD HD500 w/Firmware 2.1 connected to DT50 1x12 Combo w/Firmware 2.0 via L6 Link. The POD and DT50 were both set to factory settings and presets. I recently purchased a used DT50 and connected it to my HD500 that I purchased new years ago after I update the firmware on both. When changing presets on my HD500, I hear significant, sometimes severe, pops on the DT50. If anyone would like to attempt to reproduce my problem and give me feedback on their results, it would be a huge help. Specifically, when I change from the factory preset of 6A - Mysterious Wei under the Songs / Style bank to 6B - Plugged In Baby under the Songs / Style bank, the amp makes one loud pop and a second smaller pop and the sound cuts out for a second or more. This problem is extremely noticeable because of the loud pops combined with no guitar sound. I know part of this is from a topology change and a class A to AB change, but this is far more severe than anything I would expect from reading the forums previously. My questions for the forums regarding this issue: Can anyone reproduce this problem with a DT50 known to be in good working order with good tubes and an HD500 connected using the same preset change I mentioned above? Any suggestions to minimize this issue? Is there a problem with my DT50? Is this a sign of worn tubes that need replaced? Is this considered normal operation for the DT50, or does it need looked at by a technician? Finally, if anyone out there has a DT25, would you mind trying to reproduce this on your DT25 and reporting your experience? I have read that the DT25 is much better with switching than the DT50. I greatly appreciate assistance. If needed, I will try to post a sound clip of the problem, but I will not be able to do that until Friday or Saturday. This is my first tube amp I've ever owned after many years of playing guitar. I enjoy the sound so much that I hope I can find a solution to minimize this issue. Thanks, Baoh

    Topology switching?

    I haven't used my DT 50 head with the HD500X in a while. I noticed when using set lists Line 6 link or any of them that the toplogies don't switch on the amp. If the channel A is set to toplogy II then its stays that way regardless of the patch chosen. I remember previously that I could visibly see on the DT50 that the amp would change from I to IV based on the patch chosen. I flashed both the amp and the pod. Any suggestions. Thanks.
  15. Man, every time I fire up the this amp I'm so impressed with the way it sounds and feels it gives me the goosebumps. Granted I don't use it like a work horse since I don't gig but I'll turn it on, crank it up and pump out some great music for about an hour when I do. The cleans, crunch's, heavy and smooth distortion I can get is wild and just moves me. I've got a EHX Tube EQ and when this is in the FX loop it can add a really nice change to the different amp models. I don't how to explain it other than "Thickens" the tone and/or EQ it however you want A big "Thanks" goes out to the guys & gals at Line 6 in Calabasis.
  16. I've read that the pre-amps in HD500 are the best to use with DT50 and DT25, so I've put a setlist together with all of the pres as a baseline for my patch creation. The problem I encountered was that the volumes varied WILDLY and I kept blowing up my ears going from the quietest amp (Hiway-100 apparently) and a Treadplate for example. Of course one amp is louder than the other, but for home use, or testing, having these patches be leveled is a must So I've gone through and leveled out (with the MIXER setting) all 30 of the pre amps to be very roughly the same loudness. There is definitely some variance. If anyone cares to correct them more properly, please do so and post the update. In this setlist, Hiway-100 is the quietest amp- I have the db setting on the mixer maxed, so I used that setting as the baseline for loudness of all the other amps. Very unscientific, but now I don't get ringing ears if I'm switching between. Hope this helps. DT25 30 pre-Amps-leveled.zip
  17. I made a discovery this weekend whis was important for me, but which was probably painfully obvious to everyone else. Apologies, for the rambling that's about to follow. When I get excited my ability to communicate is . . . compromised I know that the Helix/DT combo is a completely different animal than the HD/DT one. But I've been trying to make my Helix and DT50 interact as similarly as I can. The first step, of course is to use DTEdit to blank the preamp modeling for all four voicings on Channels A & B. Then blank the mic/cab modelling for the direct output. What that leaves you with is basically a DT power amp section. Some have success picking a Voicing, Operating Class, and Tube Configuration and just leaving it. Then running all of their presets through that. I'm sure that sounds amazing, but i knew there had to be more. Pretty much every parameter of the DT can be controlled via midi. The aforementioned three, Channel Selection, EQ, Reverb, And the "hidden" parameters unique to the DT50; 12AX7 Boost, Phase Inverter Voltage, Topology, and Feedback Capacitor Type. So my goal became to use midi to make the Helix/DT sound and behave as much like the real thing as possible. In an earlier thread, I discovered how to use the midi instant commands. So I tried to figure out how to set it up so that when I selected a preset, the commands would fire to set up the DT50 to mimic the power section of whatever preamp I was using. So which parameters to assign to the Instant Commands? Well the EQ and channel volume controls are disabled when you clear out the preamp models, so I can forget those. I have reverb in my patch if I need it, so cross that off. Which leaves me with seven: 1) Channel/Voicing 2)Operating class 3) Pentode/Triode, 4) 12AX7 boost, 5) Phase Inverter B+ voltage, 6) Phase Inverter type, 7) Topology It's a bit of a hassle to program all those midi commands at the start, but worth it I hope. There's just one problem. There are only six instant command slots available. So which parameter can I leave out? So I used DarrellM5's spreadsheet, which contains all of the default power amp settings from the HD500 So I hooked my DT up to HDEdit and starting with those, Then I began to set the rest to see which were most important to getting my the sound I was looking for and which I could leave out. Which leads me to the discovery that is the inspiration for this post. ALL of those settings can be saved can be saved to a voicing slot in DT Edit - Channel A: I, II, III, IV or Channel B: I, II, III, IV For example, I have a Plexi patch which calls up Channel A, Voicing II. When I load it up I can, using only one Instant Command, change the DT settings to Class AB, Pentode, 12AX7 Boost on, Topology II, Phase Inverter B+ voltage to High, and Feedback Capacitor to X. All to match the way Line 6 sets them up (which I assume are the settings they settled on after examining all the gear they modeled) Or I can change it to anything I want. All with only one midi instant command. A couple down sides. One, you're limited to the 8 Voicing slots available. Two, at least with the Plexi, which is the only one I've really worked with so far, the DT Master works in the same way, the volume control would on the real amp. You have to get pretty loud to get any sort of distortion happening. But when you do, it's glorious! Then back off the volume on your guitar, ease up on your attack and you can get those beautiful "clean, but on the verge of breaking up" tones. I love it with my MIM strat with CS '69s.
  18. My DT50 212 just bit the bullet just 5 minutes after turning it on and placing it into standby mode. I turned around and heard a soft click like noise and then nothing. ALL fuses are okay....outside (main) and the two internal fuses. It has less then 10 hours of 'on/play time' and was purchased from AMS two years ago. I know there were transformer issues mentioned in a service bulletin, however, I cannot find the information here. Can someone point me to that information please or explain if this (despite being out of warranty) is covered or not, etc. I saw the exact same transformer (number 1 below...the larger one) being sold for ~ $225.00. A crap load of $$ for a hunk of iron and copper.

  19. Anyone have a good slide guitar tone? It will be used for the classics ('70s) and some eagles.
  20. All credits regarding this discovering goes to Elantric from Vguitar Forums. Guitarist and MIDI Designer Pro user François Desnoyers has been one of the most influential people in the MIDI Designer Community. Features from his suggestion list are still being implemented in every MIDI Designer release, and his international French is behind the French App Store text. But as you can see from his layouts, he’s serious about making MIDI Controllers, like this one for the Line 6 HD500. The HD500 does not allow for a lot of MIDI control. Even so, François solves one of the biggest problems with the interface, which is allowing direct, visible access to the presets: Having to rely on a reference grid to identify presets was not very pleasant. I decided to reproduce most of SETLIST panels on pages. You can mix and match pages from this layout with those for the Line 6 DT50 Amp Controller. This way you can control both your FX and your amp from the same device. Sweet!

    Helix to DT25, Back in to Helix Mic

    I tried using Helix into DT25 with L6 link and then DT25 cab out (no cab) back into the Helix mic in and recorded over USB. I used a Minotaur into a US Deluxe Vib then split to two different 3Sigma Friedman cab IR's out to the DT25. I set the mic level to 30db in global and split the signal. One channel is dry amp tone, other channel has Adriatic Delay and 63 Spring Reverb. Set both outs to USB 3/4 and recorded in Tracktion 7. A lot easier than 4CM, just L6 to DT and XLR back to Helix. https://soundcloud.com/steve-bowley-1/dtintohelix
  23. I have a DT50 & Pod HD500 over L6 link with AES cable. Last night I had a live gig and in the second set, in a middle of a song, the DT50 suddenly stops working! ðŸ˜ðŸ˜³ðŸ˜© In some kind of panic I switch over directly to my DT-amp, to ensure that my HD500 was ok and try to find the problem. The DT50 was no sounding at all, but the power lamp was lightning. I tried both channels (A & B) with no success. I turn it off and on and nothing helps me. To save the situation, I had to plug in my HD500 direct to the PA. Unfortunately I had'nt any Patches for that, so the sound was terrable with low volume because I use Pre-amp patches. The day after I check out my DT50 to find the problem, but the Amp was working and sounding!😳 I check the fuses to be shure and they were ok. My question is, anyone else who had this problem and can it be so, that the amp stops working if it's too hot? I have the master volume on max and set the output with the lokal volume.
  24. Hey gang! Ran into a weird issue when connecting the HD500(X) with a DT50 using the L6 Link. The display would flash the "knob settings screen" and lock-out operation of the knobs and buttons. Initially, I kind of cured it by reconnecting the link after changing the Setup, Page 1 - AMP/KNOBS DISPLAY to "Momentary: OFF." Then I noticed my HD500 presence knob operation was erratic, but if I used the DT50 presence knob instead, it was fine. Did some more investigating and here's what I discovered, purely through trial and error. Why it happened and the fix: In Setup, Page 1, (press and hold "View"), I had set the footswitch mode (FS Mode) from "ABCD" to "5-8" so that I could run multiple effects and turn each of them on/off with a dedicated footswitch. My DT50 didn't like that when using the L6 Link. I had to disconnect the L6 Link cable to get the buttons and knobs to respond again. I changed the footswitch mode back to "ABCD", reconnected the L6 Link and everything worked fine, This one took me some time to figure out, so I thought I'd pass it along for anyone else with the same issue. I let Line 6 know and suggested a software update so that we control freaks can run 8 dedicated footswitches when using the L6 Link. Ha!
  25. I hope the thread title makes sense. I'm working on getting my Helix and DT 50 to play nice together. I've learned to assign footswitches to send midi commands to set up Channel A/B, Voicing, Class, and Triode/Pentode in a given patch. If I switch to a second patch with different settings, is there a way to have the original settings recalled automatically when I return to the first patch? Or do I, once the patch is open, then have to press the footswitches to resend the commands? Thanks for your help.
