So I have a Line6 POD X3 that I ordered from Musicians Friend. Now I THINK I have the gold coverage, which is good for maybe another year or so. From what I understand, the Gold Coverage grants that I can send back my broken product as long as I didn't damage it in any way. My POD all of a sudden stopped turning on, however, if I press and hold the on switch with force, the POD stays on. This leads me to believe that the problem may just be some bad soldering for the switch. It could be a quick and easy fix, however, opening up my POD would void my warranty, and I don't want to risk it. I don't even know if my POD's problem would be covered with the gold coverage. I tried emailing MF, but they said that I have to call. Which is kind of a problem because I live overseas and I don't want to stay up all night just to make a phone call that'll cost me a fortune. But if I CAN send back my POD, then I'll get it back, free of charge, and working properly.

BUT I don't want to do all that hassle. So my question to YOU, Pit, is should I risk voiding my warranty for good by opening up my POD to do what SEEMS to be a quick and easy fix. Or should I call MF, and see if my product is even "within standard" to be shipped to them. And even if it is, it's going to be a hassle. Not just shipping it but waiting as well; I recently ordered a guitar from there and it took almost two months to get to me. So what should I do? As of right now, I'm thinking about opening 'er up..

Nobody cares.

I'd say send it back to them though, before you crack it open and **** it up good and proper.

Pooping is well good though, to be fair.

Couldn't you just re-solder it, and not tell them?

Stop ordering a bunch of crap from overseas and you won't have to deal with all this shit.

Sounds like it's as reliable as most Line 6 gear. Crack it open and have a look. Make sure it can be put back together without any noticeable tampering evidence. Easy.

I was thinking this, surely there are music stores wherever you are currently?

just a few of my fans..

I had this kinda dillema with my Akai Headrush when I first bought it, I just cracked it open and sorted out the solder. How're they going to know you opened it up? Is it just standard screws it's held together with?

The stores where I live has horrible selection and the prices are jacked up. I'd rather order from MF and other sites because it's cheaper (for me).

I suppose I could give it a look and then just put it back together. But if I open her up, and try to fix the problem, but it doesn't work, won't they know I tampered with it?
