I think my Helix just broke. Any ideas on what happened, and whether it is user error?

Help! I was practicing my setlist and walked away for five minutes. When I came back and rocked my expression pedal back up, my guitar signal was barely audible, and there is a HUGE amount of white noise like a ground loop within Helix. I reset the firmware and it's in the stock presets too. I restored my presets and IRs, and it's still there. I changed my guitar cable, it's still there. I also changed from XLR output into my JBL PRX monitor, to my Yamaha HS5 studio monitors. It's still there.  It's affecting the guitar signal coming from the 1/4" and XLR outputs. I route my audio from the computer into Helix and back out through the 1/4" outputs, but the digital audio isn't affected.

I used my Telecaster and Gibson, and it is the same with both.   I tried the auxilliary input and it's the same problem using a different input.

So weird.  All of a suddn it works again.  Maybe it was a low voltage brown out.

Which Helix type are you using? I think someone else experienced something similar and posted about it a week or two ago.

What are you hooked up to ? 

This sounds like the behavior of helix when the outputs are connected to a mixer, that sends out phantompower..
