Hey everyone i just bought this amp a week ago and it had been working for over a year i know the seller so he definitely did not tamper with this me and the seller have both checked the speaker and everything is soldered fine we are wondering if this is the power amp or if it could be the power cable (not the official line 6 cable) the pre amp is definitely working because all the lights for the effects are turning on and responding as normal. There is no feedback even if you take the channel volume and Master and put them to 11. What is there to do?

Its not uncommon for spiders to just quit like that. The lights may be on etc but no sound. If its not the speaker or cable then its probably the power amp section.

thats what we were thinking but if it is indeed the power amp how do we go about fixing the problem?

unless its a spider 3. they quite frequently have issues with losing sound.

It's not gonna be worth fixing. The cost of the fix will likely be more than what you paid for it.

you've tested the headphone / line out?

Hi, sorry I'm late.
Yes, testing with headphones is a good idea. If it works with headphones, the power amp is most likely fried, in which case you can either buy a standalone power amp, or another amp entirely. Fixing power amps in these amps is really not an option due to the parts and troubleshooting involved.

The other option though, if the amp doesn't work with headphones, would be the volume pot. SS amps often have issues with the volume pot going bad or coming loose from the contacts on the board. That is certainly fixable, though usually the amp will make some sound if it's the volume pot.
