So, my e string sounds low volume.

Im using pod xt live.

It can't be sorted out by lowering the other strings.

The signal is just weak as well.

Im in Bulgaria, no service there.

Also saving from workbench to the JTV is not working by HD.

Using a mini laptop.

To weak?

What can I do..

Order some parts?

Which, where..

It's probably the piezo. Try looking here:

Try cleaning all the piezos with alcohol/cotton swab...if that doesn't fix it, you may need a new piezo

How, where  I find the piezo? By removing the sadle?

I dont have an idea what it looks like

The saddle itself is the piezo. The inner part,  where the string actually rests, that is. String tension is the only thing keeping it in place. Remove the string and it'll be obvious.

So if nothing Works one has to help himself right.

Here's the solution.

In fact worth a lot of money.

TURN THE PIEZO 180 degree!

This is an old post of mine to show where to clean the piezos.

 

The base of the pocket that the piezo sits in is how the piezo element contacts ground. So you want to clean underneath it. Just put the red straw that all these sprays come with as close to under the piezo as you can get (but be gentle. Watch out for the piezo's wire.) and spray. Keep a paper towel with you to wipe off the residue and then wait about two minutes for the rest of it to dry. Here's a picture. Notice when you take the strings off, the piezo is kind of loose in the pocket it's in. I spray in the two places indicated by the arrow in the picture. The arrow pointing up is where I can get a little under the piezo with the spray to clean it out.

The lollipoping thing won't last.

Opened it up, sprayed the piezo and the sound was great.

Till next day.

Again business as usual.

Low e string volume.

Also I hear the pick up string sound in the same time.

So impossible with alternate tunings.

What a horrible line6 service network.

No repair anywhere whatsoever.

Dustbin!

After blowing with compressor:
