I have/had a Code 50 that was crashing when I saved a preset. I called Marshall support and they arranged for the amp to be collected. They called me a few days later and said they're experiencing the same issue, but they didn't have the part they need so they sent me a brand new one.
However, I've just received the replacement and it has the same issue. The man I spoke to on the phone said it had been tested before they sent it to me so I re-read the manual to check I wasn't doing anything wrong but I'm certain I'm not.
I've uploaded a video of the issue to youtube here:
EDIT: Looks like links aren't allowed. It's at youtube dot com/watch?v=HWUFDVkAN2Y
I've posted this message on here, because I first emailed firstname.lastname@example.org but didn't receive a response. When I phoned the customer services number the man I spoke to arranged collection straight away which was great but I'm not sure how to proceed now that the replacement also has the same issue.
I love the Marshall brand but I'm not confident I won't have the same issue with another replacement. I can't return it to the retailer either because I first purchased it over a year ago.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
I need manual for code 100 combo
I have an issue with tap tempo on the Code 25 with 1.45 firmware and wondered if anyone else has the same issue. The manual says you should "press MOD and DEL selection switches together". When I do that the amp does indeed go into tap tempo mode (tap the selector switch to set tempo), but regardless of how quick I press the buttons or if I hold down one and then hit the other it always switches on the MOD module too. The other double combination switches (tuner and bluetooth) dont do this and work as expected and only switch on those functions without switching on or off any other modules.
I have 2 cabs, 2x12(16 Ohms 100w) and 4x12(8 Ohms 240w).
In Code 100h manual, says the speaker output is MINIMUM 8ohms load. I can use my 16 ohms cab without harm the amp head or the cab itself?
I'm getting trouble in the 4x12 transportation, the 2x12 is way lighter. Until now I'm only using the 8Ohms cab in the code 100h.
I bought a code 50 from a friend, but he didn't have the manual. I found the manual on this sight, downloaded it as a pdf, but can't get it to print. Is it something I'm doing wrong, or is printing blocked by the web site?
I'd like to know what actual pedals/stompboxes are modeled/emulated for ovedrive ("ODR") and distortion ("DIST") on the CODE series.
The User's Manual only says "Classic" to describe both, so they must be some well known for us all (however, the Marshall Guv'nor is especificated, so I guess it's because a conflict about copyrighted trademarks).
Is it possible the gentle Marshall Team can inform us about it here in the Forum?
Anyone have made comparations?
Any suggestion about any other gear modeled on CODEs?
Best greetings and music ;-)
Are there anywhere on internet Marshall Code and footswitch 91009 manuals in polish language? English is available with no problems. Regards, Jacek
I've been playing for awhile now, but no so much with amplification. As a present for a recent celebration, I was given a nice Epiphone electric guitar and a Marshall CODE 50. Problem is, the manual doesn't tell me everything I need to know, and the online "tutorials" on the Marshall site seem to be more like short overviews and demonstrations.
Does anyone know where there is a comprehensive guide to operating the CODE 50? Like, lights/indicators, blinking vs. not blinking, other overall how-to's for the CODE 50? Seems to be a really nice amp, but I feel I'm not unlocking all of its potential.
Thanks, in advance!
I have tried everything to do the firmware update on my new Code 25. Its showing v1.11 still.
I have tried Crome, Edge, and downloading the manual windows exe. I have updated drivers, booted amp in "safe mode" (which identified usb as READY but still wonnect connect in My.Marshall
Please help! I love the amp but need to be able to update the firmware
Hello, perhaps I'm being thick, but the little 1 minute or so videos available through the marshall site hardly seem up to the job of properly introducing a new user to the amp and all it's functions.
Has anyone produced a decent guide, video or written to properly explain the functions and those 'tricks' that come with experience or those featires you fall over when fiddling away the hours on the many options provided.
It seems to me that a 'Master Class' would best help new users maximise their enjoyment whilst minimising the painful of experience of trial and error that eventually leads to frustration with sound resulting in turning the amp off!
Hi, can anyone explains to me WHY we can't use a CODE 100H without the cabinet? For VALVE amps there is a good reason for which you need the cabinet always connected but for solid state amps it seems very strange.
Is it maybe an error in the manual? Maybe it's a phrase that has been written for all the Marshall valve heads and it was mistakenly added to the CODE as well?
Please let me know, I have an application where I only need the 100H coming up soon.
The 100w head is not loud enough for me so can i run it into the return of a louder head , this would mean the louder head having the 4x12 connected + the code head would have no speaker connected , now i always thought that solid state amps do not require a load box but the manual says do not leave the speaker un connected , so can i run this way or do i need a load box even tho the amp is solid state ?
Onde eu posso conseguir o manual do proprietário do Marshall Code 25 em português?
Where can I get the Marshall Code 25 owner's manual in portuguese?
I just got this head recently and installed the latest firmware update the other night (6/20/2019). When I try to connect my IPad through the My Marshall app it seems to be a hit or miss proposition but more miss than hit. In my settings on the IPad it shows me as connected, and the blue light on the head goes from flashing to solid. On the app, it shows the head detected but when I press on that I get a "Connection Rejected" (You may only control amps you are already connected to for audio output) and there's no control over the head from the app. Now several other times it syncs right up. I'm at a loss though. Am I doing something wrong maybe in the sequence (operator error) or is there an issue somewhere else. The manual doesn't really reference Bluetooth that well. I'm not bluetooth savy becuase I rarely use it except for my phone in the car and connection there is automatic after I initially set it up.
So is it me? Is it the gateway software? Is it the head?? Help please?
I just got around to updating the firm ware on the code 100 thought as long as i had the amp connected to my pc via the usb cable I would check out the code editor and it would not respond looked at the manual casually and did not notice any mention of how to connect
dos this need to be acomplished using a midi to usb cable
Is the a Marshall Forum for all types of Amps or just Code amps? I need a user manual for a JVM 205H. Where on Marshall's web page do i go please?
Reading the manual for the Code 50, it's not clear to me what the tap pattern setting is on the multi delay. What I am tryng to do is emulate having two delay pedals, essentially just repeating twice with no feedback. The effect should be two "echos" of a note and then nothing more. The multi delay seems to work, the manual says to set the Feedback level to the number of delay repeats (2). The Tap Pattern function seems to have no effect, though. How is that supposed to work?
I've read the manual and apparently the volume knob controls the volume of whatever preset is selected.
I'm running a Marshall code 50 with boss gt1 pedalboard so my question is, if i want to my sound to be controlled via pedalboard shouldn't I be able to turn volume knob all the way down and only control the amps volume with master volume knob? Because the moment i turn the volume knob down i dont hear anything.
I'm just trying to get a more deeper sound, the sound i get is just way too bright
I've been playing Marshall amps for years now and I've bought new and used, traded for them, traded them away for other stuff, and Marshall USED TO SUPPORT us out here in the REAL WORLD that keep their amps going and keep playing them by making the owners manuals available on the website and making the website easy to navigate but now it is a complete disgrace!!!!! How F***ing hard is it to keep the owners manuals linked to an easy to locate section UNDER what USED TO BE CALLED "SUPPORT"!!! It is not very hard at all. The only manuals I can navigate to are the CODE amps. You should be proud to support your vintage amps and keep the manuals fully available online for your time honored and time tested LOYAL CUSTOMERS who continue to use Vintage or Older Model Marshall Amps. Your Website sucks now and is extremely limited. I realize you want to keep your current products out there and is no way you can continue to host all of your product specs and info on so many models over the years, but YOU COULD continue to maintain the ONE page in a SUPPORT section that details where to download your DISCONTINUED PRODUCTS and simply throw all of those PDF files into a folder and link it to your SUPPORT page so we can continue to download the manuals easily ourselves without any assistance from you guys. It doesn't take up that much disk space and is not very hard at all to encode that back into your page. I am SURE that I am not the only one here that is completely frustrated that Marshall Customer Support appears to have gone to hell and you don't seem to care about your customers any longer or you want to SELL us a manual to get more money out of us. This is CRAP! You need to FIX THIS and I guarantee you that Millions of Marshall USERS will thank you! Let's get back to putting the Customer FIRST folks!
Please read this post in the spirit in which it is posted.
I monitor these forums regularly as I have five Marshall CODE amps. and I guess I like to see what's going on and stay up-to-date. And I suppose I enjoy sharing my knowledge and helping others where I can. I must also note that I've not had any of the issues described on these forums with any of my CODE amps. And I must also note that I think they're the best modelling amps. around i.e. they're Marshalls and enough said.
But what concerns me (and hence this post) is this: there really does seem to be a lack of interest on the part of Marshall Amplification when it comes to the CODE range (at least here on the forums i.e. if emailing Technical Support yields different results then I do apologise) (and given the fact that I've had no issues at all with any of my CODE amps., as noted above, I've never had to contact Technical Support so I would not know). It's almost as if Marshall regret the day they got into this modelling business (and if that's not the case: sorry but that's my personal impression at the moment after, what, around eighteen months or so of monitoring these forums???). I mean to say: there are so many posts around here (dating back) asking for feedback re: apparent bluetooth issues, projected dates for new firmware updates, etc. etc. etc. And no answers. There's even been one or two posts asking if Marshall is going to continue with the CODE range or if it's something they want to get away from. No answer. I think you get the picture.
The above being said: I do understand how frustrating it must be to be asked the same old questions over and over and over again ESPECIALLY when a forum member couldn't even be bothered to search the forums for an answer before posting and asking a question or before reading the manual. Hell: if I had a few USD or GBP or EUR for every time I've answered a question on here re: standalone software to control these amps. well, then, I'd probably buy some more CODE amps.!!! LOL!!! Point is and all jokes aside: I do get it. But it's no excuse for a lack of response on some very key issues (like those mentioned above). And what's more: for some they're not asking for favors i.e. they're quite willing to help themselves but need a little bit of input (the Master Volume issue comes to mind here) and they just don't get that input. And (back to the firmware issue): some are even prepared to roll back their firmware to a previous version as (apparently) some issues were not issues in previous versions i.e. they're not even insisting that a new, immediate, firmware update with fixes is made available. Fairer than that I don't think they could be. But: no response (or, in some cases, a very non-committal response anyway).
In closing: I don't know if I'm correct in my assumption that Marshall isn't too interested in this CODE range of amps. I also don't know if, maybe, this (perceived on my part anyway) lack of interest is because this particular market is quite tough nowadays (what with other modelling amps. and a plethora of plugins and the rest of the junk out there) and maybe the core business (the more expensive and professional products) is being conentrated on and these CODE amps. are just an irritation. But you need to know this (as I have noted already): they are STILL Marshall amplifiers. And there is nothing on the market (whether it be another modelling amp. or a plugin) that sounds like these amps. (or, at very least, comes as close to emulating the more expensive and professional Marshall valve amps.). So they are actually something to be proud of Marshall. Just bear this in mind going forward.
As I said: please read in the spirit in which this is being posted.
No response is necessary either. But please do take cognisance of what I've posted above going forward.
