Repairs in Australia
by steveofthehyenas on 2010-12-08 14:07:15.3300

Hi.  Can a HD500, bought in the USA, be repaired in Australia?  I understand that technically the warranty only applies in the country where it was bought, but are repairs possible for a fee (at the Rowville centre)?  Thankyou.

It's really up to the discretion of the distributor. They need to at least be an authorized Line 6 distributor so they can order parts from us.

I'm not sure about the repair center you called out but I can tell you that Music Link AU has turned down repairs in the past when people were even willing to pay.

Hi, thanks heaps for the response.  Do you mean to say they've turned down repairs of units bought in the USA specifically, or that they've turned down repair of units bought in Australia?  I.e. if i bought the unit in Australia, does that decrease that risk?

Thanks again,

Also, is there anywhere in Australia that would reliably repair either a unit bought in the USA, or a unit bought in Australia?

Thanks again,

The warranty for a particular unit is only valid in the country that it was bought in. If you live in Australia, you should purchase a unit from a local dealer.

The service center in Australia is:

Music Link Australia

Servicing: Electronics, Guitars

29 South Corporate Drive

Rowville, Victoria


0061397656565 (phone)

0061397656566 (fax)

But they can decline to repair any unit bought in another country because the unit has no warranty.

Hi again,

I have contacted Music Link for further information.  They advise that they in fact do not repair Line 6 products.  In fact, they advise that "Logitronics" is the repairer (  Do you happen to know what's going on in this case?

Thanks again for your help,

Actually, don't worry.  I've called them and they advise they do do repairs, for fees etc.

Hi yes I am in the same boat. I bought mine when I was living in America and now I am in Australia also. My unit only worked 5 times before it now freezes on load up and I cannot get it fixed anywhere... I use a power converter so the unit should have worked fine. Pretty disapointed by the lack of help with it.

Same level of disappointment here. Thought I bought the dream rig. Now I am stuck with a broken variax and a void warranty because I bought the guitar in another country.... I was quite happy with the stuff, until this week. :-(

Line 6, is there any change in warranty policy expected ??
