Hi there, Wow, long long time wothout posting here ;o) I am still the owner of a mark 1 SV 112 and still hppy with it. I never experienced the overheating DSP problem leading to neverending ressting of the amp, but it is true that I seldom used it at high volume for long periods of time. I only gigged twice with it and have played it in my personal home studio at home mostly. What I would have liked to know is if this problem is systematic with MK1 SVs or if it is completely random. I mean, have there been random series that have the problem and others that don't have it ? I have the Strymon SVPre that I installed when it came out and the DSP board is, it seems, the first make (Revision A from 2007). So far, I have never experienced the problem. If I ever do, I'll try to fix it with a heatsink on the overheating areas of the board, but I'd really like to know if this is a randomly happening problem. If not, I might have just got a series without the flaw and I'll be glad about it ;o) Thanks a lot for your answers. Jay
Hi, I have an L3m that I use as a monitor for my HD500x, the last couple of gigs I noticed it was unusually hot when I unplugged at the end of the night. I have not had any sound related issued and it was performing normally, but it was worryingly hot... I listened carefully with my ear to the fan vent and could not hear the fan running so got it home for a better look... I opened the back and sure enough the fan wasn't spinning even when I let it get pretty hot again. I took the fan out and connected it to a variable power supply, and it operates as it should increasing in speed between around 5v up to 12v, so the problem is not the fan itself. When I put a meter on the fan connection on the board, it measures between around 5v up to 12v depending on how hot the unit is getting, so that's also correct behaviour, however when I connect the fan to the board it straight away drops voltage at the fan to about 1.5v and the fan doesn't turn. So, it seems that the supply to the fan drops under load (no amps?). I'm no electronics engineer but I know just enough to get this far... Has anyone else experienced this or have any ideas? It's out of warranty so I've spoken to a local repair shop who have said that they would probably find a 12v source on the board and wire the fan into that so that it will be on full speed all the time... I'd obviously prefer it repaired properly so it's not always at full fan noise, but is this a reasonable solution? Also I should mention that the front LED is on white, but also there is a red light on too which I assume has something to do with temperature. I know ehen the red light flashes it has something to with limiting, bu this is a steady red light together with the white light. As I said the performance of the unit has not been compromised .. I'm lucky it hasn't fried itself yet and that I noticed the problem in time! Thanks for any ideas :)
Well... First of all. Excuse my english, im spanish speaker, so i'll do my best. I bought this amp years 4 or 5 years ago. I used it without a problem for months, i was happy... Then, while i was playing, it starts to turn off and on while i was playing LIVE on a gig. I looked around here, and there, for a solution and i didnt find it. Some people had this problem with their Spiders, so i wrote to some guys with this issue (In this forum) and they told me that couldnt find a soluticion. They said "I didn't get mine fixed.. I took it back to where I bought it and got a refund". The lollipop thing is, im from VENEZUELA and bought this amp in USA and Line 6 dont exist here! So i cant take it back and get refund, i cant send this amp to Line 6 to technical support or whatever... And still didnt find a fukin' post, tutorial, video, or whatever to fix this lollipop. I really feel stolen from Line 6.
Hi, I bought a brand-new L2T, unpacked it tonight and off course testing. But it starts limiting with a red light after approx. 20-30 seconds. No matter which input I use or which instrument. I tried an acoustic guitar on channel 1, gain half way, master volume of L2T half way, limit starts and doesn't stop anymore, no sound is comming out of the speaker. Only the noise of the fan. Tried 2nd. channel with a mic., same story. Tried the red/white RCA at the back with an electronic drumkit, same story. The fan starts and there's no sound anymore. Tried the noise suppressing on/off. Am I overlooking something or is this one from the mondaymorning-production batch? Oh boy oh boy.
