Line6 6 dt50 power transformer replacement reviews

Recommended Posts

I guess this just struck me. news I was participating in, there was at one time a pop, at that point nothing. I got mine repaired from Line6. Had it several a year.

OK, I know there has been a lot of back and fourth surrounding the topic of DT25/50 amps and bad power transformers.  But, I have a bottom line question - even if the amp is out of warranty and it is determined based on the Serial number that the amp in question was sold  with a potentially faulty transformer... will Line 6 fix/replace the amp based on the fact that the power transformer was bad out of the gate? 

 

Thanks for any replies in advance...

They did for me....twice.  It took over 3 months each time.  I have 2 so as these fail I will be moving on at this point...but I will miss them when that day comes.

It was a small batch of transformers years ago, with the DT50. It wasn't a DT25 problem

from what I recall.

 

kmcfrld's problem might be something else. If there's a problem, judging by how long you've

had it, if the tubes haven't been changed out already, then it may be time for tube change out.

If you don't want to spend the $$$$ to send in your DTxxxxx amp to get that new xformer for the DT50-212 or others, you can buy one [exact same brand/part #/etc.] from Full Compass. I bought one and works flawlessly. They are the latest xformers of course...not the older defective ones.

 

NOTE: Line 6 WILL authorize an out of warranty replacement for the transformer if you have one that is affected - via serial/date of purchase check, however, you are responsible for shipping the ENTIRE unit back..that means no taking out the head unit so to speak. This means: $$$$$$$$ in shipping....thus the simple buy it yourself and replace it option is desirable for a lot of us back, East. It's very simple to replace.

@n9nu was it easy to replace?  I have 2 DT-50 112's.
