When I plug my multFX pedal to the Return of the amp the sound come out at MAX even with everything on Zero (Master, Volume and Pedal Output).
Why? How to fix?
I was playing guitar and tried changing the volume on my amp and once I did the sound completely went out. I can't even play sound connected via Bluetooth on my phone. I don't hear sound either when I connect headphones to my amp. In addition to this, I connected my amp to my laptop and recorded some sound to try and figure out the problem, and GarageBand picked up what I was playing. This problem has happened to me in the past but after I wait for a little the sound seems to come back, but this time I've waited over a week and my amp still isn't working. Any tips?
When I switch off the amp there is always a crackle in the loudspeaker .
Is that normal or not ?
I've brand new Code 50 with latest firmware (1.47).
From time to time, the speakers output turns off. I do have to poweroff OR activate bluetooth detection then exit button.
Clearly, this is a Bluetooh issue - and I need a way to turn it off while playing.
Actyally, I've bought the amp and the original pedal switch because I cannot use phone bluetooth while playing.
Please, this is a MAJOR issue, I really need your help on turning bluetooth off.
I've recently bought a new computer that only has USB C ports on it, and the CODE50 comes with the USB mini b to USB A cable, and I previously used this to record the amp sounds directly into Ableton and it would work just fine. To overcome this issue of not having the right USB I first used an adapter, but this revealed a new issue, that being a lot of latency and some fizzly sounds, leading me to believe the connectivity through the adapter was faulty. I bought a USB mini b to USB C cable to try to fix this issue, but it persits, and now when I try and connect my amp to my computer for anything, such as to see if there are updates or to try presets from the library, it seems that no connection is recognised at all. I was wondering if there were any drivers to install to help fix this issue, or if it was something else.
After connecting my device to the speaker, the speaker plays sound normally and the volume increases/decreases as my device volume increases/decreases. However, if I set my device volume all the way to zero, the speaker is still playing sound. Tried to reconnect, but still not working. Is there a way to fix this? I would expect the speaker to be silent when the device volume set to zero.
I have an incomprehensible problem with the code, I try to connect to the combo via bluetooth connection, but the device is not displayed in the list of bluetooth devices, even after pressing REV + POWER the device is nowhere to be found (I checked on different smartphones) and throughout the whole time the code emits strange sounds of knocks from the speakers that are not solved in any way, I updated the firmware several times, this did not help in the end. Has anyone had the same problem, how did you solve it?
Hi. I've been trying to track down some main fuses for my DSL100HRs. It shows on the back of the amp T2AE250V but I cannot find these anywhere online and don't want to put the wrong ones in if the numbers aren't exactly right. Can anyone tell me if there is a safe and equal substitute for this fuse or where I can find the exact ones? Thanks in advance :))
Hello, I would like to check my new headphones, are they original or they sold me a fake, please help. Headphones were purchased in Germany
I am struggling to connect my newly bought acton 3 speakers to play as stereo, I bought them because I should be able to connect them together, but I am afraid I will need to return them. I tried everything from the Marshall bluetooth app, but it seems that it has some update, so tips from acton 2 don't work anymore. The app doesn't even show stereo mode anymore. Is there any manual which could help me? My last option here, before I will be force to return the speakers. Thanks a lot for any tips!
can i hook these up together without any issue or problems? if not, what would be the possible result, in doing so?
I am new to electric and got this amp from a friend. Love the external features, but hate when my phone audio is always blasting when choosing cloud presets.
In case Marshall decides to do another round of Codes, or for people that want to buy one, here is my bottom line after dealing with this thing for a few years. I had Line 6 experience and wanted a simpler all-in-one modeling combo with a bluetooth app that could do hard rock. The Katana looked like a toy so I bought this.
PROS: Solid construction. Looks great. Good range of amps and effects. Bluetooth app is very good and can tune every parameter. Tones can be downloaded and backed up to/from Marshall site. Amp can sound very good (after a lot of tweaking). The Plexi, American OD, JTM Crunch and Acoustic amps are good. The Guv’nor, Compressor, Chorus, noise gate and all the delays and reverbs are useable. Marshall has done sufficient software updates to correct early issues (bluetooth, tones, bugs). Can be used at bedroom volume with Master on ‘1’. Optional footswitch gives good control. Documentation is good. Updater software on PC works well.
CONS: Other than those mentioned above, all the other amps and effects are bad. This includes the JCM800, JVM and Silver Jubilee. All the cabs are bad. None of the stock patches are usable. You have to make your own. There are user uploaded patches you can try but very few are usable. Learning curve is significant. The amp is too loud. When you turn up from bedroom level to louder, the sounds change and become very boomy which should not happen with a modeling amp. No effects loop. The ‘out’ is a mini USB. Connecting to a computer requires a mini USB to USB or Lightning cable, which is not included. I tried to use the USB to record to Garageband and sound came out but I couldn’t make it sound good. The footswitch also has a learning curve, and like other people I had to have mine replaced.
ADVICE: Don’t buy it. I bought my Code 50 new from Sweetwater for $299 and now the same version of the amp is $399. If you must have a Code, get the 25 instead. It is cheaper and still absurdly loud. The higher volume available in the 50 is useless because it sounds bad. The extra hundred bucks just gets you painfully loud solid state power amp watts.
If you do get a Code, upgrade all the firmware immediately. You need to connect to a computer to do this, but first you have to find the cable on Amazon. This is unforgivable.
BOTTOM LINE: I have spent too many hours tweaking the Code. This is what I hated about Line 6. But the Line 6 tones were superior. I never got a good JCM 800 sound out of the Code, after hundreds of hours of work. It’s only “great” amp sim, oddly, is the American OD. Marshall’s own Classic Metal patch uses this, not a “Marshall” sim! The Code is marketed as Marshall technology with amp sims created by Marshall, but it is not. Softube created the software and tones. This is not a Marshall amp. Line 6 Marshall sims are far better.
I have now bought a tube amp. I am keeping the Code because I have mastered it and can practice on it but I would not buy it again, certainly not for $399.
I want to know if its possible to use two effects from the same "area" at the same time, like a distortion with pitch shifter, or tremolo with flanger, phaser, or chorus.

Is there any way to update the firmware on my code 50 without a computer as i do not own one ?
Hello.. Why does "My gateway" not appear when I access it from the PC?
i want to update my firmware on my code 50 amp
I'm assuming I have 100 slots on my CODE 50 for whatever presets I choose. How do I specify which numbered slot I wish to update or change with any of the presets on MyMarshall.com. Not sure if this question makes sense or if I even worded it correctly.
new purchase. I have a custom Eddie Van Halen replica orginal. Excact copy of the famous Frankie.
I have spent time on the app and making adjustments however I dont get the sound i was hope for. Perhaps I need to add an FX ex Boss ME-50. To get the sound i am looking for. ACDC / Kiss / VH. all i get is a little louder version of my guitar. I have watched many videos on line and they change the setting and get classic rock sounds. Like a Gibson or whatever. Classic rocks sounds. I have tried many VH and ACDC pre programmed set ups and still not he tone i am looking for. What am i missing?
When I switch off the amp there is always a crackle in the loudspeaker .
Is taht normal or not ?
Thank you for the response.
Presets are now saved to User Library and can be easily accessed in Gateway app. Any preset then can be stored to any CODE slot. Double tap the preset and ten tap the first "Save" button, then it will show you a screen with the 100 CODE preset slots, where you can select where to store your preset.
The only missing feature might be the ability to re-arrange CODE presets, which we will see what we can do about it.
We are working on a feature in Gateway app that allows to re-order CODE presets. Hopefully, that would help you.
