X3 Pro - no Variax


Recommended Posts



i got  a used X3 pro and was happily trying it.

Everything was going well, guitar and mics but when i connect my variax i got no sound.

I checked the imput and reinstalled the flash firmware and still nothing.


I checked the plug and it was physically ok.


Plugged to variax to my XT live and it worked as normal.


So i guess something is wrong.

Is there any kind of "hard factory reset" that may solve it?


Anyone know how to solve?

Found out how to start in safe mode.

It does same tests. Variax, Midi and Pedalboard tests failed. (I have no pedalboard connected só i don´t know if one is needed for this test).

Same other tests run ok.


But the funny thing is that if i start in safe mode i can see my variax with line6 monkey. I can check its firmware/software. But i get no Sound of it also.

Started again in normal mode and no sound and no monkey for my Variax.


It may be a hardware issue. 


I think there must be a way to make a "harder reset" and find out the answer.

Yeah, it really looks like a hardware issue within the unit. Monkey does some deeper checking within the hardware to ensure that it's genuine working Line 6 gear, I suspect that might be why it only sees it in safe mode.


You could tell the seller that you'll buy it once the Variax input is working correctly.
