As title says I have no output to the speaker cab. All I hear is a very quiet fizz/hum. Output to headphones is fine. Only arrived today and will be going back Monday unless I can resolve this. Code 2x12 cab seems fine and tried three different speaker leads. Gutted as I was so looking forward to getting a full weekend on this before going back to work.
Hi i have a set of combined issues with my Code 50 with the 4 button footswitch
First of, love the products!
But my issue with it is major! I cannot set any preset on my footswitch, It seems so easy on the tutorials but mine just keeps on switching back to the preset that already was on the button (1,2 or 3). I do as followed. I chose the preset i want on ex.button 1, so i hold the "store/exit" button for 2 seconds and then i push the 1 button on the footswitch. But it only changes back to the preset it WAS. So no changes. When i HOLD the "Store/Exit" button for too long (3a4 sec) then it says "stored" and then no sounds comes out of the amp anymore, i can push the REV and AMP buttons and the LED light up. But no sound! The footswitch also then doesnt butch. I have to restart the AMP to get it to work again.
I tried to update the firmware but it already was up-to-date so i reinstalled the latest firmware again. I also tried to reset the AMP back to the factory reset but the problem still exists.
Does anyone know if these are still supported by Marshall and if they are discontinued as I've seen on a retailer site here in the UK? I was looking at buying one but may wait for a replacement model.
Hi! I have a question about CODE 100H. I need to play directly in mixer but it hasn't a DI exit, can I use it without a cabinet? If I can, how can I do it? If I don't use cabinet, will CODE be damaged? Thanks for your help.
I added presets that I would like to add to my Code 50. They appear on the bottom of My Gateway, but I am unable to drag them into my 100 presets. Even clicking the amp icon to demo the preset does't work. I am using Chrome and have my computer connected via USB to my amp (status is Code: Connected).
Also, the 100 presets currently in My Gateway are in a different order than my presets on the amp.
I have watched the turorials but it doesn't seem to be working. If you could let me know how to add the selected presets from My Library to my presets on the amp that would be great.
Hi. Can I use the Code 50 whitout presets? I have a MXR Zakk Wylde overdrive and a Boss Chorus. I would to use them but also whitout the presets.
It's always been very hit and miss but the Bluetooth connection of the gateway app to my Code 25 literally never works. Why aren't Marshall doing anything to fix this? Surely can't be difficult.
How do I sync my CODE 50 amp to my android phone? I updated presets on the phone and PC but they do not carry over to the amp. All help appreciated.
For a couple of years I have owned a Code25 and a Code100. And I'm very happy.
I understand the criticism of Marshall's patches, but for me it's no problem. I have simply never used any of them. It was enough with one try and I realized that I have to find the right sound myself.
Only once have I found a patch that fits my guitars directly. It was SCJM800 SLF, but in that patch everything goes to eleven.
It is far as I can see some extremely important things to think about.
First of all, the settings differ a lot between the guitars, I guess because it is a digital amplifier. A perfect setting for a Les Paul can be useless for a Stratocaster etc.
I myself have played on the amps with a Les Paul, a Stratocaster and a Telecaster. And each guitar requires its own settings. This is not strange, a consequence of how the amplifier is designed.
Another crucial thing is the height of the microphones. There you have to test yourself to get a good sound, especially single coil may require adjustment of the microphone height. Height adjustment gives enormously much more effect than on a tube amplifier.
In general, I can say that my sounds are closer to the original with both precence and resonance quite loud. In addition, the Compressor helps quite well.
In short: Since Code is a digital amplifier, it obviously works completely differently than a tube amplifier. It is not possible to fix good sound for a Gibson and then think that it will automatically sound the same on a Fender.
All this applies to JTM45, Plexi, JCM800 and Classic American. I have not tested the rest so carefully.
I there any where I can down load a list of Code 50's AMP presets
I've finally had time to sit down and play properly with my new Code 25. There is a lot of fun to be had with this thing, however there are a few things that have became apparent with some of the models.
Pre-amp models "50s British" and "OD DSL" have really odd low frequency harmonics. To the point where both these pre amp models are pretty much unusable. The default patches that use these settings are proof of this. To me it appear that its these patches that certain Youtuber's concentrated on when bad mouthing the amp online (and I can understand why). All the models have some amounts of digital artifacts, but these 2 models are unbeleivably bad.
Power-amp model "British Class A" seems too hot to me, not that I have an expert ear, but it is almost impossible to get a clean tone with that power amp regardless of what pre-amp you put in front of it and how low you set the pre-amp gain.
I understand that no modelling is perfect, but in general these 3 models just don't respond the same way as the other models on the amp.
OK. I'm aware that the Code 25 is a low cost practice amp, and I am fully prepared to just pretend these models dont exist and live with the other much better models on the amp. However in the spirit of reporting issues with the potential of improving the product then if these models can be fixed in the next firmware update (if there is one) then that would be great.
There seems to be some Marshall Code 25's with a power transformer in the bottom of the cab and some without. What is the story, What is the difference and which is the newer model?
At some point Marshall will give up on Code and move on to something else (and by past experience it may not be that far away). I would have liked some way to backup and restore patches to the amp once there is no more Gateway or online storage (this happened to Fender Fuse)
I cant believe that after 5 years Marshall dont have even a basic PC application to perform the simple task of saving and loading patches. Even the most basic of multi FX have that functionality these days.
Its clearly hoping for too much to get an editor, you can do that on the app, or even on the amp itself fairly easily anyway. I'm more worried about managing patches if Marshall shut down the Code servers. Without a way to backup and restore what happens if you have to reset your amp. You have lost everything. After spending a lot of time getting all our sounds just right, I for one would probably give up at that point.
I'm not asking for much, save a patch from the amp to a file, load a patch back from a file to the amp!
Hi, I just recieved my Code 50 yesterday "bought brand new" and the amp sounded great until i hooked up to my pc this morning and downloaded a featured preset not a communiy preset. I am running usb not bluetooth and its my studio setup. Now all the distortion and gain sounds like the input gain is wide open clipping the signal coming in at all volume levels, and on all distortion and od gain presets. I tried to reset the amp and did a firmware update now its litterally so bad you cant play it. This is certainly a software issue cause the effects and clean tones sound fine. This happened immediatley after i sent the preset usb from the website to the amp from the pc. Also i tried several guitars, usb cables, guitar cables and even my mac. just dont know wether i should send it back or if thiscan be fixed with a firmware patch or something , Thanks
Hello Marshall Support Team,
I consider buying a Marshall Code 25 or 50, but I'm really concerned about the master volume problem with these amps, which has been discussed in length in this forum (see ? ? ? or ? ) [sorry, seems the URL-links to the topics are deleted, the topics were "code-25---master-volume-issuses", "code-50-master-volume", "code-master-volume-issue" and "master-volume-marshall-code-50", all about the master volume knob, which goes from very low immediately to very loud].
In one of these threads you seem to acknowledge the problem and state, that your R&D team will look into this.
So here are my questions:
Is this problem solved with newer versions of these amps?
Does the problem show up regularly with all amps or does it affect only some devices?
Is there any chance to replace the Master Volume pot by myself if the problem shows up after some time?
Thx in advance for you reply.
With regards - snoopy
Hallo ich habe das Problem das sich der Footswitch ab und zu wie aufhängt, verdrücke ich mich fängt er an die Banks durchzuzählen und hört nicht mehr auf, oder wechselt auf eine zahl und lässt sich nicht mehr zurückstellen, so das ich wieder zu den Presets komme.
Nur ein Neustart des AMPs hilft das er wieder funktioniert.
Sprich AMP ausschalten warten bis die Lichter des Footswitches ausgehen, und dann wieder Einschalten.
Habt ihr solch ein Problem auch schon einmal gehabt oder eine Idee was das sein könnte.
Dr. Google mag mir da leider auch nicht weiter helfen.

Any ideas Marshall Support????
Hiya, I have the Code 25 Amp and have for the last couple of years. I have recently updated my phone to an Iphone 12 pro.
The Gateway App has installed on my phone. My setting are saying the Code 25 is connected via bluetooth, but the Code 25 and the Gateway App are not connecting.
I have removed the Gateway App from my phone and re-installed it as advised and have re-connected the Bluetooth from the phone to the Amp once again as advised.
I try to scan for the amp but it will not connect via the bluetooth.
Can you please help with a solution.
