Amplify 75 on the Fritz

Recommended Posts

A few months past the warranty expiry and it quit working. The lights around the volume knob light up in any one of several configurations when I turn it on. Bluetooth is dark and unresponsive. Tone and tap are dark. I can hear it turn on with the normal "click" through the speaker but nothing works. I've tried the factory reset, no change. Anybody else have this happen? Any clues?

I have recently noticed problems with my Power switch.....doesn't always come on the first time......

Having my doubts about their Quality Control...... Really, my amplifi75 has Hardly been used......

I have electronics well over 25-30 years old still working like a champ.....pedals, amps, guitars, one Ibanez PT footboard that's 22 years Old....

I am ready to take my Amplifi 75 out back and see how it works with a 12 gauge fix. Seriously, I have enjoyed several Line6 items over the years and this one has made me rethink Line6 entirely. A product should work and LAST - I can't troubleshoot it - nothing from support on it and I WANT to like line6 again...

 

I rest the unit this am to the latest update ( i did this yesterday from Mac) on a Win 10 machine (BTW use Firefox as Edge will corrupt downloads) and it ran a full 30 min and then resets itself and the bluetooth going into an endless reset process and then ended up 4 light flashing and dead. 

 

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE fix this for us!  

 

Line6 Shortboard MKII

iPad4 with latest IOS APP

Mac El Capitan

 

Please respond B4 the 12gauge gets it's day in the Line6 Sun :) It would make for a nice Youtube video tho....

 

 

Upadte: I reinstalled firmware 2.502 no BlueTooth activated or on, running mp3 player into the back end and so far ok...totally afraid to turn on BT as it WILL crash, and not to mention the IOS app to adjust the tones - I'd be fine using it as an amp...crap it just died again!! Some one fix this mess!

I encountered this at a GC with a unit that was on display. I couldn't reset it so it had to be sent for repair.

Thanks, Tcamponovo - Any idea what the repair might cost? I believe the warranty expired in February. Or could you direct me to someone with some repair experience? I tried "support" but all they could do was read the owner's manual to me. Any help would be appreciated.
