POD HD 300 : frequency conflicts ?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone !

 

I've been using my POD HD 300 for a while, and everything was ok until last week.

 

I don't know exactly why, but now I'm experiencing some "interferences" with the device... Here are the symptoms :

 

  • My patches don't sound like they did before (sound sloppy)
  • I can hear the radio through my POD (breaking news, etc.) while I'm playing (radio sound comes louder when I play a distored tone) ! 

I tried to uninstall everything (drivers, Line 6 Monkey) and start from a clean base, but the problem remains. For information, I'have got everything up to date (latest versions of each software/drivers/firmware). The issue came when I used the v1.03 firware though.

 

I really don't know what could happen between the time it worked correctly and now, and I have absolutely no idea of what causes the problem (device malfunction ?).

 

So, I wondered if any of you encountered this issue, or have any idea of how to get it fixed.

The fact that distortion amplifies the problem makes it seem like the problem is before the pod.

Sounds to me like an EMI issue, I would start by interchanging and eliminating guitar and input cables before proceeding to suspecting the POD.

Did you introduce any new equipment that uses electricity when this started? Not just music equipment but anything in the proximity of your gear or that uses power from your fuse box.

Thanks everyone.

 

I think I'm going to investigate on my cables and guitar's side first, like you suggested to me.

 

@CipherHost : I didn't change anything at all. To be more precise, the glitch occured in the middle of a playing session (I had just recorded my rythm part using Reaper, and the interferences came when I switched to the lead part).

 

Anyway, I'll let you know if things get better using your advices.  :)

Ok guys, I've got some updates.

 

Finally, the issue came from my guitar, not from my cables or POD ! Indeed, after further investigation it appeared that the volume controller were damaged from the inside...

 

So, I played with my other guitar and I had no interference. Thanks for all !  :D
