I have a CODE50 (1 week).
After editting a preset, I click and hold the exit/store button to save the changes I made. The changes are stored but the CODE then "freeze".. no sound, no change possible,... After switch off/on, everything is back to normal. The preset is updated.
Same thing is happening when I store the preset in the footcontroller...
Is that "normal"? Am I doing something wrong? I presume that I'm not supposed to do a switch on/off everytime that I want to store a present change...
I seem to be having the same issues that a lot of people have reported, where I cannot get the Marshall Gateway app to connect to my Code 25. I've only had the amp for about a week and I cannot get the app to see it.
I can connect to the amp via Bluetooth using my phone (Pixel 3a, Android 11) and whilst connected, can use it as a BT speaker to play music from Spotify. However, nothing I do seems to get the app to connect to the amplifier.
-I've updated the amp to the latest firmware using my laptop/web browser.
-I've followed all the instructions in the Bluetooth Connectivity Troubleshooter to the letter (CODE - Gateway Bluetooth Connection Troubleshooting - my.marshall.com)
No matter what I do, or what order I install/uninstall/connect, the app will not see the amplifier. Everything works otherwise - I'm able to apply Patches from ? using a USB connection - and the amp sounds great. I'd just like to be able to control it from my phone.
I suddenly have this problem with my Code 50 and my Lenovo tablet. It did work with the Gateway app until today, and it is connected via bluetooth and it will play music from the tablet, but the Gateway app doesn't even see the amp. I tried uninstalling it, reinstalling it, clearing the cache and storage, no joy. Oddly, it works fine still from my LG phone.
Great sound in the speaker, untill the problem drops my mood by constantly losing bluetooth connection
When playing music by radio or spotify, the Stanmorgen is constantly ínterrupted by the and losing repeatedly conntection and then repeates starting/pairing sound (e-guitar chords) which now is changed into an annoying repeatedly sound.
Feels like some device is trying to connect with the speaker.
Checked al the diveces nearby and turned them of which should / could be the slolution
Problem is still there and is more than annoying.!!
The Stanmore II at firtst returned to the store and the send it back for repare, but not sure if there was repared anything?
Again sound is great, need you help
No question, just saying: I love my new Monitor-II-headphones!
Hello, . . . im new to guitar and this is the first amp i have bought with my own money.
I have a 100h that says version 1.11 when i turn it on. I am happy with the sound for the most part but wish there were some improvemnts to the software
Due to marshalls apparent lack of interest in the software, and peoples stories on here of updates making their amp worse, I am afraid of "bricking" my amp if i try to upgrade the firmware so wondering if anyone really noticed much of an improvement from updating the firmware, and if it was even worth it?
My two biggest software issues are:
1.when i connect my phone the amp automatically reverts to the first phone presets so if i am in the middle of playing with a certain preset and my phone decides to dissconnect and reconnect it will change the preset, or if I walk out of the room . .. ... .which is really, f8king, annoying.
2.the mute lag when switching between presets, . . . . seems pretty useless and lame to play live if there is a big silent gap between switching tones
Can anyone confirm if the firmware update fixes either of these? Thx!!!!
Well as per title, one ear is giving me extreme levels of noise when I am starting the active noise cancelling feature. The right ear is giving me so much noise it's actually hurting my ear.
How can I fix this? It started happening when I took my headphones running, and i received a call during that time. But now even after putting the headphones off and back on the noise starts. Even when not connected to anything, and even in a room that is fully quiet (or noisy).
Ok. A couple questions I'm sure can be answered here.
I just bought the DSL40CR less than a week ago. It's awesome for something smaller. Great at home amp.
However, the first clean channel is very low on volume, while if i switch to the other clean its 3 times as loud or more. Is something wrong here? One clean channel can be cranked to max volume which would be the equivalent of the other clean channel at maybe a 2.
Second question, I'm hearing a lot of talk of people swapping out the speakers in these amps. Is this always recommended?
Third question, I desire more reverb. Is getting a pedal the answer, or another Marshall amp altogether? Would a JVM be any better in the reverb category?
Fourth question, would getting different tubes change any of the previous concerns? Would getting different tubes make the amp better?
Im new to valve amps, and I'm struggling to answer all these questions.
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.
My Stanmore 2 speaker keeps turning off & back on again (sound plays and indicator lights go on & off) when playing vinyl through the RCA or AUX. Very annoying. No problem when playing on Bluetooth through my iPhone. Any ideas please?
Need to figure out why channel 2, the instrument and mic channel is not working. Channel 1 and mic only channel are working fine. Opened it up and took out the chassis and there is nothing obvious. The basic schematic shows the Channel 1 and 2 share the instrument input on the ring cable input. Not much info out there which is good news considering this amp has been in production for a while so it doesn't seem there was on going issues. Any ideas? Thanks
Hi. I have a JMD1 50 COMBO and i'll swap the original speaker that is 16 Ohm. Can i use a 8 Ohm speaker instead ? The back of it we have 1 slot for 16 ohm and other two for 8 Ohms. Can i change the original ohms? Thanks a lot.
Here are a few things I would suggest as improvements to the Marshall Code series. I have a 25 so some things may be specific to that amp. I have stuck to things that could be improved only by software or firmware as these are improvements everyone can have simply by updating the firmware rather than modifying the amp itself.
1. Reduced power mode to switch between full power and lower power mode. This would fix the volume control issue everyone complains about. Maybe this could be a global setting in the firmware ?
2. USB audio Volume level setting (e.g. -3dB, 0dB, +3dB etc). This could also be a global setting in the firmware ?
2. Normalise the volumes of the models, some are way too hot (British class A power-amp), some are way too low (Natural pre-amp). I beleive this is the reason why some models have strange low frequency distortion (50s British, OD DSL).
3. Show the configuration of the Cab models, not everyone is a Marshall fanboy and I have no idea what cab a "1960X". even if it was displayed as "1960X (4x12)" I would at least know what the configuration of cab the model is.
4. Fix the spring and hall reverbs, they sound very cheap, like the "echo" you would get on a cheap karaoke machine, certainly nothing like a spring reverb.
5. For god's sake release an official desktop editor!!! with the option to save/restore/edit patches.
6. A sync button to sync the amp presets with your gateway. It you want to rearage the patches online in gateway, you have to manually save all the patches one at a time to the amp using the phone app. So if you add a new patch at position 0, you have to manually save all 100 patches one at a time in order to match your gateway sounds!
7. Fix the tuner, it is pretty bad on both the amp and the app. It's slow to respond and not very accurate (at least thats what its like on mine). Ive no idea how well it works on the foot controller.
8. If possible add a Fuzz pedal model, even at the expense of removing another model (I wouldnt miss the pretty poor Acoustic simulator for instance).
These are just some suggestions that I feel would make the amp just a little bit better, but in general I'm having a lot of fun with this little amp, and love the sounds and features it has. It is way better sounding than some of the negative reviews online would suggest.
Maybe other people can suggest firmware updates too?
I have the following problem with my Marshall Stanmore (I) Bluetooth speaker:
Whenever I am wirelessly connected, the Bluetooth connection drops after 20 minutes — while playing music!
The surprising thing is that it not just happens randomly after 15 to 45 minutes — no, it happens suspiciously regularly after 20 minutes. I went and tested this with my laptop (4 times) and my phone (3 times) by writing down the start and stopping times, and the Bluetooth connection got interrupted (the music stopped) after 20 minutes each time. 7 times in a row. No exception.
• Yes, I have removed the speaker from all devices, then re-repaired them. Multiple times.
• Yes, the problem exists with all my devices that can send sound via Bluetooth (laptop, phone, desktop,). Those same devices have no problem to stream music to my Sony sound system or portable Bluetooth speakers. The problem only exists with the Stanmore.
• No, the Stanmore is not near a wifi router, a micro wave, a DECT phone or close to other Bluetooth devices. All of my other Bluetooth devices work perfectly fine. During my tests, the speaker and the Bluetooth source were about half a meter/two feet apart.
• Yes, I have had the Stanmore disconnected from power for an hour. Even a few days, actually.
• Yes, sound works perfectly fine via the wired connection (INPUT 1) and it doesn't stop after 20 minutes.
• Yes, the "STANDBY MODE" switch on the back is set to "STANDARD". (But surely no Bluetooth speaker would ever go into standby mode WHILE playing music anyways, right?)
• No, I am out unfortunately of warranty. The speaker looks great and hasn't been used that much. I also find that it financially doesn't make much sense to spend 130€ (max.) on a Marshall OOW repair.
• No, the Stanmore I is not compatible with the Marshall Bluetooth app, and there is no way for me to update the firmware (as far as I know).
• Yes, I can absolutely open up the speaker and post pictures of specific components, if someone has a clue about what capacitors or chips to look out for.
Additional info on the issue:
I experience no problems connecting via Bluetooth, from any device. I can start playing music — but after 20 minutes, the music will automatically stop. If I am streaming from Spotify for example, the player will just pause. The Stanmore stays powered, and the red BLUETOOTH light on the Stanmore is still on, but it appears a little dimmer than normally. I have found that pressing the SOURCE/WAKE button once usually wakes up the Bluetooth connection again, and then after a while, I can resume music by un-pausing on the laptop or phone.
The fact that this happens after a very precise operating time, sure sounds a lot like it could be standby-related. But the Stanmore is not set to POWERSAVER mode. And even if it was, it would only enter standby mode after a certain time if it wasn't playing anything. A speaker that goes into standby mode every 20 minutes WHILE playing music ... that would be ridiculous! And yet, that is exactly what I am dealing with.
Any ideas or clues for what to try or look out for?
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.
Hi. I have a marshall jcm 800 bass series head with serial V20551 and two marshall 1550 speakers with serial number 2003 and 2005.
Can anyone help me with some more info on this items please.
I have an Origin 20c Amplifier that I purchased new last year. It must have been old stock because it appears the manufacture date was 2018. I believe this unit has the faulty Jack wiring since the labels for the external speakers do not match the owners manual (2 8ohm jacks, without the line indicating 16ohm for both). My question is, will this unit work with a single Origin 212 cabinet, assuming I unplug the internal speaker, or do I need to get it repaired. If it will work, which of the speaker jack should I use, the one in the middle or the one furthest from the 16 ohm Jack
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.
