Line 6 Spider 2 Head Volume Problems

Recommended Posts

I have a 75 watt Spider 2 head. Recently, the volume on my line 6 spider 2 head has volume issues.

 

I will be playing my guitar then the volume drops drastically low. I would say 85%. I have tried factory resets multiple times. I have also tried to reprogram the channels with volume settings, yet nothing has worked. The volume still drops out on me.

 

Any idea on what this could be?

 

Thank you.

I would suspect a faulty component (like a power capacitor) or solder joint - once it heats up, the fault happens.

Also been read that with high volume these digital knobs will drop down and turn the volume down.  Check to see if at high volume if the master volume is not dropping due to all the shaking.  If so there are a couple of youTube videos I have seen about adding washers to tighten up the knob.

I think if in a few more days I can't figure it out (I've even had it apart twice and cleaned it out) it's hitting the trash.

The 'volume drop' issue can indeed happen from a moving channel knob (from vibration) when the knob is turned lower than what the patch preset is set at, but I don't think this is the problem in this case.
