Not sure where to post this but anyhow, right in the middle of playing my Line6 wireless unit stops working correctly: signal to amp is about a quarter it's normal strength. Any suggestions where I can start as far as trying to repair myself? Tried new batteries and connector cable....No luck.

I do not know anything about Line6 wireless...that said, it won't stop me...

Many wireless xmit or rcvrs have a gain or sensitivity or output adjustment...small rotary knob or set screw, etc. Maybe you just need to tweak that.

It is possible that you are in an area where the same radio frequencies are being used by other commercial applications...often, you cannot hear the other conflicting source, etc. So, if your Line 6 is a true diversity with multiple channels, try switching channels.

Finally, find an authorized warranty repair shop and take it in.


It is not that your Line 6 "went bad"...it simply made some bad choices. It all comes back to Sunderland's Theory of Differential Association and the value that your Line 6 places on the behavior that led to this change in performance.

If i'm not mistaken the Line6 product is digital and does not use regular radio frequencies ?

Certainly worth trying at a different location

My first experience with wireless was an AM device called the "Wireless Wizard" back about 1970.

There was the horrors of lo-fi AM signal to an AM tuner. And then at several jobs, my signal competed with an AM station.

At one we were asked to take a really long break so the audience could hear a ball game.
