Weirdness With My Line6 Combo Amp

    I've got a LowDown 150 combo that I've owned for about 4 years and has been my main gigging amp (60+ dates a year) for the last two years.

    Lately one of the channel presets has not been "saving" the info I program in. The button will flash constantly (like it does when you've changed something to the existing preset), even when I haven't changed anything. And then when I switch channels (or hit the mute switch) and come back to this channel it's not like how I had left it.

    The other 3 channels seem to save themselves fine and yeah I suppose I could work around the bad channel and just use the other 3 but it's kind of bugging me.

    Anyone had this happen to them?

    Probably an easy fix, but best done by a qualified tech.

    Have you ever updated the firmware? Usually line 6 provides regular updates to fix software issues like this?

    Good point. I haven't done a thing to it since I bought it new. Didn't even know there was software involved.
     
  6. Possibly try factory reset??? You'll lose presets, but it might be helpful in working out a bug....

    To do that simply press and hold the Channel A Button while turning on the amp.

    If you don't already have one, download a pdf file of the owners manual from the Line 6 website and review the memory/channel settings information. I bought my LD300 Pro new 5 yrs ago and sometimes referring back to my manual helps me clear up issues like the one you're experiencing.
