  1. A Catalyst may seem "dead" if a firmware update fails to complete itself. If the Catalyst fails to update: Power down the amp and close the Updater app. Open the Updater again, then power up the Catalyst while holding A and B to put the unit into bootloader mode. You will then need to manually select the correct Catalyst product from three choices presented by the Updater. Select the latest firmware version, then accept the Terms and Conditions. After the update is complete, power down your Catalyst amplifier, then “RESET” the amplifier by holding down the “B” and “MANUAL” channel buttons while turning the power switch back on.
  2. Hello guy’s, my hx stomp have a problem of power supply circuit,when I turned the switch to”on”,the screen has light less then 200ms, and it will turned to black screen. sometimes I can turned on the pedal successfully, but the more times I can’t use my pedal, i change the switch ,and the 1000uF cap,but the problem doesn’t solve… sorry,my English is very bad,hope you guys can help me!
  3. The power cord for the Pod Go is not really road worthy - as well, I like to have both a back up cord: a cord I leave at my studio at home as well as one in my Gig back. Besides being back ordered, they are also very expensive. Does any have suggestions on options other then buying a direct replacement (which can't be done right now)? Also, the DC-3h unit is 9V 3A - is it ok to use one with higher amps (ie: 9V 4A)? How about one with fewer amps - 9V 2A? Is there a range that will work 3A +/- 14% or some other Percentage? Right now playing with just one cord and that is risky............. Any help/advice is greatly appreciated.
  4. Français Deutsch Q: Which power supply works with each Line 6 device? Line 6 power supplies are available at your local dealer or at our Online Store. Q: I want to power more than one Line 6 unit from the same power supply. How can I achieve this? A: The Voodolab Pedal Power II Plus can power up to 6 Tonecore pedals and two Modeling pedals at once, and the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power AC can power up to four Modeling pedals. Other power supplies may not deliver consistent voltage and are not supported by Line 6. Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus Voodoo Lab Pedal power AC To power the early Line 6 "modeler pedals" (DL4, DM4, FM4, MM4, etc) with Pedal Power 2 Plus, use output 5 or 6, DIP switch AWAY from normal with the supplied red/black ended cable (it's 2.1mm/2.5mm reverse polarity and the red end fits the effect pedal). The reason this works is that the actual current draw* of these early modeler pedals is less than 250mA. Also, when DC power is used, 12V is required (as opposed to 9V when AC power is used). *It is quite common for effects/pedals to be labeled to match the specifications of some included/OEM power supply (as labeling them differently can often times confuse the end user). When however, in reality, these effects/pedals will have an actual current draw (mA) that is (far) less than this specified/labeled value. Note: sometimes, the actual current draw can be found in the manual (appendix/specs). Q: I am traveling overseas. How should I power my Line 6 device? A: You can buy any adapter that converts your country's power to these specs and it will work. Any electronics store in your country should be able to sell you one, or you can contact your local Line 6 dealer. Be aware that the DC-1g and DC-3g power supplies are universal across all voltage and power standards around the world, and you will only need the appropriate adapter for a new region rather than a different power supply or transformer. There are certain products that operate over a range of power supplied and don't require any conversion: Helix Floor/Rack/LT, Powercab 112/112 Plus, Firehawk 1500: 100-240V AC Relay G90: 90-250V AC POD HD Pro/Pro X: 100-240V AC POD X3 Pro: 100-240V AC Q: What if I do not have the Line 6 power supply? A: If it is not possible for you to obtain an official Line 6 power supply, then any other power supply with the same specifications should suffice (but is not supported). Q: I am outside the United States, what do I need to power my Line 6 unit? Option 1: We recommended that the proper Line 6 power supply be used. Please contact an authorized Line 6 Distributor for the appropriate region. To acquire the proper Line 6 power supply for a desired country, please visit the Authorized Line 6 Dealers page to find an one near you. Option 2: You will need a travel voltage converter. These will work with our products provided they output the currents and voltages specified on your Line 6 devices or power supplies. Q: I purchased my internally powered Line 6 unit in a region that has "XXX" voltage, and now I am relocating to a region that has different power. Can my Line 6 unit be modified or do I need to use a external transformer? A: Many Line 6 products can be internally modified at an Authorized Line 6 Service Center to the power needs in your new region. Spider amplifiers require that the transformer be replaced along with internal modification. Please note that this is a non-warranty modification and will not be covered under any warranty agreement. Q: What are some of the common power situations around the world? A: Always verify your voltage and frequency BEFORE plugging your unit in, as damage could result if the unit is improperly powered. Although there can be variations to power, here are some common voltage and frequency situations found around the world: United States: 120V AC/60 HZ Europe: 230V AC/50Hz United Kingdom: 230V AC/50Hz Australia: 230V AC/50Hz Japan: 100V AC/60Hz Here are some examples available on the web: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mains_electricity_by_country http://www.world-import.com/all-transformers.htm Q: What is the U.S. warranty on a Line 6 power supply? A: 90 days from the purchase date. This applies to power supplies purchased separately and were not included with a Line 6 device. Q: What is the difference between alkaline and rechargeable batteries? A: Rechargeable batteries will usually last about half the time of alkaline batteries, and can have an inconsistent power drain after each recharge. We recommend using alkaline batteries when powering your Line 6 product. Not all rechargables are true AA size and may not fit correctly. Quelle alimentation pour quel appareil Line 6? Vous pouvez acheter les alimentations du revendeur. Je veux alimenter plus qu’un seul appareil avec une alimentation, comment est-ce que je réalise ca ?

  5. So randomly today, my Helix will not power on. I turned it on and the usual Helix splash screen came up, and then a few seconds later it looked all warped/glitchy, and then there was nothing but a blank screen (see pic attached). I just got this/registered it in February and opened a support ticket. Anyone else have the same issue or anything similar? I realllly don't want to have to buy another one, and hope Line6 can fix/replace this unit! -Andrew
  6. Hello, Does anyone know where i'd be able to get an XPS-AB or an XPS Mini, I cannot seem to find any listed anywhere
  7. I have had a legacy Variac acoustic 700 model that came with the power supply kit (pedal with switch, XLR out and TR out that comes with the stereo cord to supply power to the guitar).It's been issue-free since I bought it about 8 years ago. I rarely use it with the battery pack due to its short life. Recently I turned it on through the power unit's XLR output and all I got was mega distortion and noise coming out. I checked all the connections and they were good. I tried the TR output from the power unit with the same results. I replaced the XLR cable and tried a different channel in my PA and got the same results. I tried a soft reset of the guitar (sitar setting and plug stereo cable in while holding in button). This did not fix it. I tried cleaning all the inputs with pot cleaner - did not help. I finally tried putting batteries in and used a TR cable straight into the PA. That did the trick and it worked and sounded fine. I deduced the power supply kit was the culprit. To that end I checked the TX going into the unit and it measured approx 10 V AC which should be good. I checked the end of the TRS cable that goes into the guitar and it measured only 7V DC. I'm thinking it should be 9VDC as the battery pack with the 6 AA batteries provides 9V BUT I removed the board inside the power supply unit and the trace corresponding to the ring of the stereo input cable has a print on the board stamped as 7V. So I'm confused? It seems to me a 7VDC output could be causing all the distortion and noise. Shouldn't the TRS cable "ring" be outputting 9VDC to the guitar? I would like to buy another unit power supply kit but research has showed they are no longer made or sold and impossible to find? I could possibly build myself a unit that provides 9V DC to the ring of the stereo cord and provides a TR output to the PA at the same time but I need to know if that ring is supposed to carry 9VDC or 7VDC? Thanks guitarmanpercy
  8. If you are having trouble with your DL-4 MkII stompbox modeler, please try the following: - Use a different guitar, cables, and amp to make sure they are individually working correctly. - Remove all other pedals between your instrument and the amplifier. Ensure that: - The cables you are using to test work correctly by plugging directly from the instrument into the amplifier. - All jacks and nuts on the pedal are tight. - The unit is receiving sufficient power from the correct power supply (fresh batteries or a Line 6 DC-3g, DC-3h or DC-1g). Do not use old batteries to test pedals. - Reset the pedal by pressing the A and 'Tap' footswitches while inserting the power connector and powering on. Continue to hold the switches for approximately 8 seconds, until you see the green LEDs light up. - The last thing to try is to reinstall the firmware. Go to https://line6.com/software/index.html, choose "DL4 MkII" and "Firmware" from the menus, then follow the directions listed with the latest firmware entry. If you are still having difficulty you will need to have the unit repaired at an Authorized Service Center. All Line 6 Pedals carry a 12 month parts and labor warranty from the date of purchase from an Authorized Retailer. Please take a copy of the dated proof of purchase to ensure the warranty is covered.

  9. Quick question for the electrical engineers among us: I've got my guitar rig at home hooked up to a power strip that is plugged into a switched wall outlet. This works pretty well because it lets me turn all of my pedals on and off with a single switch. Will I damage the Helix if I turn it on and off this way, instead of using the switch on the back? Thanks! -Jon
  10. Hello! I've had a Line 6 Toneport UX2 for a couple of years now. Recently I got a new desktop PC running windows 10. When i connect my toneport all I can hear coming from the outputs and the phones output is a loud hissing noise. Drivers are all up to date, line 6 monkey shows me all green ticks, asio drivers are all ok. the input vu-meter is always at maximum even though nothing is connected to it. no input signal, no output sound (except for the loud hiss.) Running it in a usb 2.0 on the motherboard (so no usb dongle or something like that). Tried it with all ports, a couple of different usb cables. I've also tried seeing if my PC's output voltage was the problem but everything is ok, no overclocking done. I'm running out of ideas. Could anyone help me with this?
  11. Similar to the discussion for computers...do you leave your unit on? It does get a bit off after a while. The power supply is built in, not a separate power block. Any thoughts?
  12. 1. Plug the Variax into the PODxt Live Variax input 2. Press the OUTPUT MODE b\utton and scroll the SELECT knob until you see MIDI/VARIAX. Use the fourth soft black button under VARIAX to activate input 3. Press the EDIT button. Scroll the SELECT knob clockwise to the very last page. 4. Change Variax models by highlighting MODEL with a soft button under the main LCD screen and use the tweak knob to the right of the screen. 5. Parameters are saved per patch and settings are reinforced when the patch is loaded. NOTE about Alternate Tunings: Alternate tunings are part of your Variax customization in Workbench and called up within a PODxt Live patch with the customized guitar model. To select or customize tuning in Workbench: 1. Click PRESET (1) at the bottom left hand corner of the editor screen. 2. Select 'Alternate Tuning' preset, load, and close. 3. Click SEND (2) and apply setting to one of your custom guitars. In the illustration I used Custom Lester Model 2*1 4. Go back to the Workbench Main Page and SYNC your Variax with the changed settings 5. You can now exit Workbench. On the PODxt Live: Select the model you wish to load & save patch to desired location.
  13. I know this has probably been suggested frequently, but I'll bring it up: Please add a stand alone VDI interface for the Variax. I love the Variax, but I don't want to be stuck with my HD-500 (or Helix) if I want to control the model switching / provide power and get the digital signal from the onboard processor. This unit would of course have a VDI connector to the Variax and 1/4 plugs for standard gear. This unit would also accept midi-in and provide mini-out with the Variax knobs providing Control-Change messages. I know this is how Line 6 gets you to buy into their 'eco-system', but I really think the Variax would be even more popular if it was easier to integrate all it's features into non Line 6 setups. Yes, I know you can hack an old PODXt or something, but I don't have time for that.
  14. Does anyone have a recommendation for a replacement power cable for a G10S wireless? Thanks.
  15. Hi. I found some issues in my Line 6 Spider 240HC amp that probably have other discussions opened, but i decided to record them. https://youtu.be/67unAeUulCA In the first one, the display flashes when it's turned off. https://youtu.be/477VH-TT4W8 That sound happens when i turn off the amp. That happens sometimes using different IEC cables. https://youtu.be/Fy6RwlY-xHk This problem started when i changed my IEC cable too. Sorry for the sound quality, there is a clicking sound when i activate the reverb. I though the it could be caused by the cable, but they are universal and i guess that it could be produced by digital issues. I really like this amp but it's difficult to play a gig calmed with that kind of problems. Is anyone having these problems? Sorry for my english.
  16. Application Q: What are the presets on my Spider Valve amplifier? A: The user presets and artist/song presets for the Spider Valve are listed as attachments at the bottom of this document (please be aware that they are identical to the Spider III with the exceptions notated in the document). The Spider Valve user presets are the 36 user-programmable presets. The artist/song presets location cannot be saved, but you can modify and/or store these setting in the 36 user-programmable presets. If you would like to return your unit to the original presets, please perform a factory reset. Q: I noticed that some of the Artist/Song Presets from the Spider III are not present on the Spider Valve? A: Yes, some of the Artist/Song Presets from the original Spider III release were not included in the Spider Valve release due to space restrictions (please compare the two lists for clarification). Q: Are the Spider Valve series amps Mono(phonic)? A: Yes, the Spider Valve series amplifiers have a monophonic output (as are most tube amplifiers). Q: How can I connect a POD unit to my Spider Valve series amplifier? Connecting to Amps and Computers, Output Settings, Floorboard Compatibilty, Fletcher Munson, Multiple Amps Q: Do the Master volume and presence control applied to the power amp section only? A: Yes, the master volume and presence control are true analog. Q: Where is the Master volume located in the chain? A: it is after the preamp, and before the power amp. Specifications Q: What speakers are used in the Spider Valve amplifiers? Spider Valve 112: Celestion Vintage 30, 8 ohm Spider Valve 212: (2) Celestion Vintage 30s, 16 ohm Spider Valve 412 cabinet: (4) Celestion Vintage 30s, 16 ohm Q: What tubes ship in the Spider Valve amplifiers? What is the power output? Spider Valve 112: (2) Sovtek 12AX7LPS preamp tubes, (2) Sovtek 5881/6L6WXT power amp tubes. 40 watts. Spider Valve 212: (2) Sovtek 12AX7LPS preamp tubes, (2) Sovtek 5881/6L6WXT power amp tubes. 40 watts. Spider Valve HD: (2) Sovtek 12AX7LPS preamp tubes, (4) Sovtek 5881/6L6WXT power amp tubes. 100 watts. Q: What are the function of the 12AX7 tubes? A: V1 is the booster to the output tubes, V2 is the phase inverter for the output tubes. When viewing the amplifier from the back, V1 is on the left side on the combo and the right side on the head. Q: Can the SV handle another 12A_7 style tube without damage to tubes or circuitry? A: Yes, but as these tubes act as a phase inverter and a boost to the power amp (rather than traditionally "cleaning up" the preamp section), you may not get the result you are looking for. Q: What Line 6 controllers work with the Spider Valve series amplifier? Controller compatibility chart Setup/Connection Q: Is there a bias switch to change the power tubes to EL-34s or other power tube types? A: No, the Spider Valve does not offer bias switchable options and was designed to only be used with 6L6 power amp output tubes. Q: Is the effect loop series or parallel? Is the effect loop mono or stereo? A: The effect loop is series mono. Q: Is there a headphone output on the Spider Valve series? A: There is no headphone output on the Spider Valve Series, but you can use the XLR output to go to a mixer, then use the headphone jack from the mixer. Q: Can I run my Spider Valve amplifier without a speaker load? A:No, you cannot run the Spider Valve series without a speaker load. Please see the following link for more information on cabinet connections: Cabinet Connection and Ohm F.A.Q. Q: Can the Spider Valve be run with a Variac? A: This is not recommended as the lower voltage can cause problems with the digital processing in the Preamp section of the Spider Valve. Q: Can I run a Palmer S.E., THD Hot Plate, Power Soak, etc. for speaker simulation or power attenuation? A: There are no known issues regarding the use of any direct recording simulators or power attenuators between the power amp output and the speaker cabinet, but if there is damage caused by improper connections or malfunctioning gear it will not covered under the Line 6 warranty. Q: Do the 112 and 212 combos support external speaker cabinets? If so, will the external cabs mute the internal speakers of the SV? A: Yes, the Spider Valve supports the use of additional cabinets. Please ensure that the ohm load is correct to avoid damaging your amplifier. Q: What is the bias voltage for the 6L6 tubes? A: 35 ma (or mv) Q: Does the XLR output still send signal when the amplifier is on standby? Is there an FX loop? MIDI ports? A: The XLR Direct Out (which is a POD-style output with speaker simulation) will function when the amplifier is in standby mode.The Spider Valve has a pre-amp out (effect send) and Power amp in (effect return) section. There are no MIDI ports on the Spider Valve series. Q: What do the FBV shortboard stomp, FX Loop/Function 1, and Function 2 do? A: The Stomp button activates the "boost" on both the original (Mark I) and Mark II shortboard. The FX Loop (Mk I)/Function 1 (Mk II) activates the Noise gate. The Function 2 (Mk II only) has no function on the Spider Valve. Q: Does the FBV controller (long board) work any differently that the other FBV controller switch the Spider Valve series? A: The FBV controller (long board) work just like the other controllers, but there are numerous buttons that will have no functions, such as the Stomp 2/3 buttons, tremolo, and favorite channel. Q: Where is the fuse located in the chain? A: The fuse is located between the 12AX7s and 6L6s (there is no "master" fuse). Spider Valve Cabinet FAQs Q: What are the specs for the 4x12 cabinet? A: 9 ply, ¾" wood with Celestion Vintage 30 speakers. There is no ‘internal baffle`. Q: What are the ohm load options for the 4x12 cabinet? A: The switchable ohm load options for the 4x12 cabinet are 16 ohm mono, 8 ohm stereo, and 4 ohm mono. Trouble shooting: Q: What is the manufacturer’s warranty for SV? A: The warranty for the Spider Valve amplifier is 12 months from the date of purchase, the tubes are warrantied for 90 days from the date of purchase. Q: How do I perform a factory reset on my Spider Valve? A: The factory reset for the Spider Valve series is to hold the "A" button while powering the unit. Q: Will using different brands of 6L6 tubes in the Spider Valve void the warranty? A: No, feel free to experiment with other tubes of the same type. Q: My amp seems to be malfunctioning. What can I do as an end user? Amp Troubleshooting Tube Troubleshooting and Replacement *Q: Where can I download a Spider Valve manual? Line 6 Manuals Miscellaneous Q: Where can I get a cover for my Line 6 amplifier? Cases And Covers Q: In the manual's explanation of how to save patch and perform 'NAME EDIT' with the FBV shortboard: Page 45, it states to use the 'COMP' & 'MOD' button to select one of the characters of the channel name. I don't see a COMP button, what should I use? A: Please use the 'STOMP' & 'MOD' button to select the characters from left to right. This was an error in the manual due for revision.

  17. Upon buying my G10's I came across the minor problem of being able to power them from a standard Boss BCB 9v power supply and not cause fatal damage to the units. I had a chat with the techie who does all my repairs and upgrades and this was the answer. A small PCB board with two fullsize USB inputs at one end and the ability to plug in one of the spare 9v power supplies at the other, but to do this you first have to snip the barrel connector off. The board is regulated so no more than the 5v that is needed will pass through. The small board fits nicely in the channel were all your cables go, to stop the board from shorting on the metal casing of the pedal board it has been housed between some protector and also not shown on the photo's is two pieces of foam that sit at either end stopping any movement. I also purchased a left angle 30cm USB to micro USB instead of the stock cable which was far too long. Just to add, when I took these photo's the power cable going into the PCB hadn't been insulated. Hope this helps some of you with the same problem.
  18. 2 POD HD500X issues during outside rehearsal for upcoming event. 1) volume pedal not working. 2) display stays on edit mode — as if I’m turning amp volume knobs — but am not touching anything. Preventing pedal on/off, patch switches. Any ideas? Playing on 40’ flatbed trailer. No overhead cover — exposed to sunlight. Weather: dry 50 degrees, sunny. POD and 4 external pedals plugged into power strip —> extension cord —> main power strip for band —> extension cord —> building power source. Input from sound engineer — either sunlight effecting or not enough power. POD purchased 2018.
  19. Hi everyone, I hope you can help me. My Uber Metal line6 pedal is not turning on. The light goes green and immediately it goes red, flashes red a couple of times and goes off. I tried with a battery and a 9v adapter but the same thing happens. Any help is appreciated!
  20. I'm trying to power my Firehawk and another small stomp box off the same PSU. The Firehawk one says it is good for 3000mA, which in my experience (having powered multiple stomp boxes from a single 1000mA supply in the past) should be enough for the Firehawk and then some, but when I try to daisy-chain the power with a splitter cable I get horrible hum/digitial whine on my signal. One usual cause for this is drawing too much power from one PSU by connecting multiple pedals, but like I say I've had several pedals happily powered from one 1000mA supply in the past, so my question is, how much power does the Firehawk actually draw, and is my over-drawing of current the reason behind this hum/whine, or it is something else (like a ground loop issue or my splitter cable needing to be grounded better or something)?? I'd love to know because I'd rather not have to take up TWO spots on my power strip just to power my Firehawk and a tuner pedal or something....
  21. First off, I have the original power supply for my PodXT LIVE (that I am the only owner of) and it's 100% functional. I built a power supply from a Weber power transformer that has eight 9vdc 300mA outputs and one 9vac 2A output. I plug the cable I made into the 9vac output on my supply and measure 9.57vac between the pin and barrel so the supply and the cable are good. However, when I plug that cable into the XT Live the unit does not power up. If I plug in the original power supply it works just fine, but when I measure that, it's output is more like 10.5 vac. Any ideas what could be going on? I figured I would ask first before I start tracing through the power section of the XT live to see what's different about my supply.
  22. Hi all, I was 99% settled on selling off my amp, cab and pedalboard in favour of a Helix, until I realised I would still want to use my G30 wireless system. I'm currently using a TC Electronic G System, which has four super convenient 9v power outputs for powering pedals in it's various loops. I was frankly amazed at what looks like a huge oversight in the design of the Helix, that while it is designed to be an "all-in-one" solution it does have the option to loop in other pedals yet has no solution to provide power to them. I'm really obsessive about cable management and having everything as neat and tidy as possible on my pedalboards, so the absolute last thing I am willing to do is have some ugly power strip on the back of a pedalboard not only wasting space but also cluttering it up just for the sake of 1 9v power adapter for my wireless. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced product which might offer a tidy and effective power solution to both the 240v Helix requirement, and a single 9v requirement?? Huge thanks in advance!!! Liam
  23. I bought my Spider V back in April and had nothing but trouble with it since. I have kept it up to date with the latest updates which cured my first problem with cabinet modelling switch. But now i am having more problems. -The built in effects for the reverb channel which intermittently cuts out on certain effects. -The sound, in that sometimes there is no sound coming out from the amp at all, both with the built in speakers (except drums/metronome), my cab, and my other guitarists cab. We spent 20-30 minutes last band practice trying to figure out what was causing the problem only for it to start randomly start working again how it was previously set up. This has happened twice now. -And the lack of power! It's 240watts, it should be enough to crumble the surrounding walls and cause all my band members hearing issues, yet my other guitarists 50watt Randall turned quarter way up sounds louder then the Spider V all the way up. Is anyone else having these problems and feel like they made a big mistake going for the Spider V?
  24. Hi everyone! How can i charge de ipad while using the sonicport(1st version)? Thanks!!
  25. Hello evereyone, I was just confrontaded with a really weird issue with the DT25 Unit. Everytime i left my amp on the rehearsal room for as long as a week disconected from the power due to fire prevention, i found the amp with a really bad issue whem i try to start it again: all the lights from the switches turns on buts no sound comes out of the amp, just a quite noise. On the first time i reeinstalled without trouble the flash-unit and it helped. The second time the amp wasn´t recognized trought the Midi interface. Curiosly it started on his own after beeing setted on standby about an hour along without doing nothing with it. I noticed this because it did a typical clipping sound and after that just a few lights were on and it was ready to be played. It is well known not to let the power on inside rehearsal rooms when you left it. So my question is why is this happening in the first place. Is there a hidden battery which needs to be loaded on regular periods of times, and it is possible to replace this battery? Thanks up front for any hints and answers!
