Pod Pro Transformer

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

My Pod Pro is not working, which I have found to be the transformer soldered to the PCB inside the case has somehow been damaged, there is no power comming out of the transformer.

 

I am a Electronics Engineer and have removed the transformer from the PCB. Please see attached photograpgh

 

Can I buy a new transformer?

Hi,

I also had a prob with the transformer in my PRO which I managed to fix. However, I got in touch with Line 6 to ask if I could purchase 1 and was told they no longer stock replacements and he referred me to buy a 2nd hand pro on e Bay etc.

Not sure if any other Co makes a transformer which is compatible as didn't look any further as a small solder job got my one going again.

I did pick up a pro on e bay for a good price as a backup so this might be the route to go down.

 

Cheers

The internal transformer is a 9V AC secondary type, I replaced my broken transformer (shorted primary) with a 9V AC output toroid transformer. I soldered the leads directly onto the PCB and cable tied it in place. Make sure the primary is the correct voltage for your mains input.

Hi,

 

My Pod Pro toke a dive from the shells couple of years ago and ruined the transformer. Also I'm looking for an alternative....

 

originally there probably from a company called EnsignCorp! But they probably have some contract with line6 not to sell the specific one we need..

Hi, my transformer fell off. It was only fixed to the board with a cable binder (!).

Which way do I need to place it? There is one side with a '1' and the other side marked with a '3'.

Any hints?

Thanks very much.
