POD HD500 main board replacement
by toddsoma on 2012-01-10 18:50:59.1310

I bought a POD HD 500 and it died.

I took it to the authorized repair center and was shocked at how much the repair was going to cost.

I work on computers, so I understand that complex circuits sometimes fail.

I also know that it should not cost $330 to replace one part ever if it is the main board.

Is there any way for me to buy the part because I already paid $500 and have had it less than a year ?

If it's less than a year old, why woulnd't it be covered under the warranty? Your best bet would be trying to call Line 6 directly on this.

Please let us know if you can or can't buy one...There's no way I'd pay that much to have someone do something that I could do myself so it would be nice to know if you can buy replacement parts.

I was told that the Line 6 warranty was 90 days.

I have had every version of the POD and I am really disappointed.

Also, how much more could it have cost to put a power switch on the POD HD 500?
