i just ordered a Line 6 Spider II HD75 amp and out of the box i cannot get the damn thing to work. i plug it in and turn it on and a yellow light apears above the clean preset, but when i plug my guitar in i get no noise. ive tried turning the volume up and pressing all the buttons and turning all the knobs. the manual has nothing useful in it as far as troubleshooting, and just my luck i picked the day that the Line 6 website is down for maintenance. can anyone help me with this? please no unhelpful "Line 6 sucks thats what you get" posts cause i dont wanna hear it, i need something helpful.

the cable works on my other amp, but its a piece of crap.

hmm...yeah sounds like something is loose internally then- it could be as simple as the speaker not being wired to the pre (or power, or whatever it's meant to be wired to, im no electrician) amp...open it up and check there are no loose wires

if you are set with the spider, just take it to a local shop and have them check it, they shouldn't charge you.
but seriously, you'd be better off not hearing it, AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH, sorry, couldn't help it. In all seriousness the spider heads aren't bad at all for solid state.

i didn't say line 6 are better than every other amp out there, i said they're not bad, there are some worse and some better.

What are they better than?
