So... I had this POD 2.0 for about 10 years now and it worked for me the first 3 months then suddenly I started getting this weird problem, were you would start up the unit and it will stay normal for about a minute or less and then it will go into the tuner and wont give any sound whatsoever, moving to another patch or out of the tuner will only put you back on the tuner again with no sound. I struggled with this to the point where I just quit it and almost trow it away, nobody at Line 6 could give me any help or advise (although at the time there were several people having this kind of problem). I changed the Eprom twice, took it to local tec's ("authorized dealer"), 3rd party tec's, you name it, I opted to just leave it there to oblivion. Long story short, have a tec or somebody change the heatsink on this piece of junk, the unit gets hot after little use and causes this BS, I found out after digging it up from the gear graveyard, I was about to destroy it to satan but decided to give it another shot and found out that was the problem. Hope this helps somebody. Pease!
Today, i was playing my POD HD400 and shut it off for 5 minutes. When I came back and powered it up it defaulted to Bank 00D "User". There is no sound. The Mode switch light is off and none of the FX switches or AMP switch and lights will work. The Up/Down switches, the Preset Switch, Navigation button, Amp rotary selector, and all Pots work. The TAP switch and the Tuner do work. The problem seems to be with the lower row of stomp buttons, except TAP. All the other banks say "User" and there are no FX settings stored. I have tried turning off the power for 30 minutes and re-starting several times. I have not used a computer with this POD for over a year, since I left my company and had to turn that computer in. I have not installed the Line 6 software on any of my other computers. This unit was only used and stored in my house for over 3 years, and has only been taken away to practice about 8 times, all in this year. It has had no rough treatment whatsoever. The first one I bought failed within 2 months, and I took it back and exchanged it on a 2 year in-store warranty. I have had no previous trouble with this replacement unit. I would appreciate any advice from forum members. Thank you. .
