Hello, and help - I've had a very annoying thing happen to me at three gigs now. I'm happily playing away, and all of a sudden, I've got no sound from my guitar. Looking down at the HD500, I see it in the process of powering back up, and after a painful 10-15 seconds of silence, I'm good to go again. It seems my pod has taken it upon itself to power down, then back up again. It is on the same power supply as one of my active PA speakers, and that has not had any problems. I was rather suspect about the pod's power supply, as the plug seemed a very loose fit in the back of the unit, so I made sure the power chord was held firmly in the cable clip, and I even gaffer taped the plug to the unit. The only thing I can think is that my guitar chord has somehow pushed against the power plug and caused a momentary interruption to the supply, but if this is the case, it is a really poor bit of design (or manufacture). I know others have experienced similar, because I replied to one of the posts some time back, but I can't find it on the forum. Does anyone have a workable solution, or a different opinion about the cause? Thanks
