Hi,

 

Hope someone can help...

 

I recently bought a variax 500 - no problems with the guitar, powers fine by battery.

 

The problem is that the A/B box does not supply power to the guitar. I suspect its because I have the wrong adapter - can anyone please confirm if its likely that?

 

Symptoms:

 

Plug in and the 1/4" and XLR lights operate fine

Power lamp on the right does not illuminate.

Plug in the guitar - no signal through to amp.

Plug in guitar with battery - signal is fine.

 

The adapter I got with the guitar: INPUT 230v ~/ 50hz/ 100ma and OUTPUT 5.2v=/ 1200ma

 

I have seen that the line 6 power supply has a higher rated output - INPUT of 230z ~/ 50hz / 150mz and OUTPUT 9v=/ 2000ma 18va

 

So, am I correct in thinking that the power supply I have is, at 7v output, just not hot enough and I need to buy an appropriate replacement?

 

Many thanks!

 

Craig

The correct power supply is very important the output is AC not DC like most aftermarket power supplies that could damage the guitar. 

What you need is a Line6 px2 power supply.
