Dear Marshall Team,
It took some time, almost a year, but finally we got the long awaited update of the firmware to fix the painful Bluetooth issue on CODEs. I installed it a few days ago (which was a bit of an issue as reported in another of my posts but finally succeeded) and now CODE does what it is supposed to do. BT comes on and connects as it should every time I turn on the amp and start Gateway on my Ipad/Iphone.
I'm very happy that you could fix the problem and I encourage all brothers and sisters in pain to upgrade the firmware asap if they haven't done already.
In the light of this fix I think we, the community, may also forgive you that for months you told us that it is not a firmware issue ;-)
So far I also think that the BT connection is more stable than it used to be.
Now I can enjoy again my little CODE 25.
Thanks, Alex F.
Running V1.43 firmware.
I have followed all instructions and can not get the iPad 6 to connect in Gateway app.
It, however "pairs" just fine Bluetooth wise on the iPad 6!
AND Gateway works well on my iPhone 5, switches presets and everything.
So I know I am doing this right and the Marshall code 100 Head is responding via Bluetooth (with my iPhone 5) but NOT with the iPad 6.
Edited: Its the damnedest thing. I removed and reinstalled the app on my iPad 6 at least 8 times with the same results.
Then I reinstalled and paired the "9th" time, and it worked!!!!
I can turn the 100 Code head amp off, and back on and it still connects.
I'm glad it works now, but I dunno what I did differently.
I have a bunch of Marshall amps and recently added a Code 100H to my collection.
I'd like to connect it to a JMD1 102, in order to use it as a valve power amp and cab for the Code as a preamp. I usually do it on my other amps by connecting the send from the "preamp" to the return of the "power amp", but in this case it didn't work, the only way to get some sound from it was connecting the headphones output to the input of the JMD1, but that's not what I expect once I have another preamp in the chain. Did anyone tried something similar?
I cannot install the new Firmware on my Code 25.
Amp Display Shows „Ready“
Marshall Firmware Update Utility says:
„the code Firmware is being updated - please wait“
on the bottom it says
Updating MCU Firmware...
but nothing - nothing happens. No Firmware Update....
anybody having the same problem? Please help!
Best Rgds, Alex
Got it to work by using Microsoft Edge Browser and the the Firmware Update tool. (Windows 10)
Google Chrome did not work, and update tool in Coogle Chrome also didn't work.
Anyway at the end iI could update and I'm happy now because the Bluetooth Problem is really fixed.
Hi, since the latest update of the Gateaway app a couple of days ago it has stopped working entirely on my phone (Huwawei P20) and now I can't use it in any way, shape or form to control my Code 50.
When I open the app, at first I see a flicker of how it should look (or used to) and then the screen changes immediately to almost blank with a couple of small coloured areas on and nothing else, nothing to click on, no words or other symbols.
Please can you let me know when a fix will be available as I believe lots of other users too are having the same problem since this latest update went out.
Good Morning Fellow Marshall users,
I have created a few of my own clean reggae sounds but I was wondering if anyone else has any tips on settings to get something close the the classy dubby sound!
Ive started playing guitar again later in life after first playing at the age of 10. My skill level is probably moderate but I enjoy playing again. I don’t gig or plan to be in a band. I’m either playing at home by myself or I have a buddy that I will go play with at his house. I have a couple nice Epiphone’s and 2 Yamaha DG60 amps. Theses amps are pretty good and have allot of different adjustments for different sounds. They both have an intermittent issue where something cuts out like the gain or reverb. I’ve though about taking them to get looked at but that’s another decision other then my request.
Lately I’ve been kicking around getting a new amp. The more research I do the more I get confused. Get another solid state amp, a modeling amp or a tube amp. I’ve never had a Marshal and out of pure envy I’d like to get a Marshall but only if it’s the right amp for me. Money isn’t a deterrent. I’ve worked my way up to looking at a Marshall combo 2x12 100 watt. JVM210C.
The reallity is I don’t think a 100W tube amp is a smart choice for me. Currently I play my 60W no more then 50% volume. And from what I’ve been told is you need to turn up a tube amp to saturate the tubes to get the most out of the sound. I’d probably only turn a 100Watt up past 50% on rare occasions like when I’m drunk and think I sound better then I really do.
Is there a 1x12 or 2x12 Marshall tube amp that you can switch between 50W and 100W? That might satisfy my needs? What about the JVM215C? What about the code 50?
I should note I like to play classic rock/rock and metal, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Kiss, Jimi Hendrix, UFO, OZZY, Pantera.....
I want something that sounds great played quite or LOUD! I don’t want something that needs a bunch of pedals for different sounds. But I don’t want an amp that has a bunch of effects but just has that fake/cheap sound. I know I’m asking allot. I just need some good advice from someone that has been around music allot and has knowledge about amps. Then I can narrow down some choices and then go to a guitar center or somewhere and play a couple!
Thank you in advance,
signed “confused” Jeff
Will a firmware update get rid of the hum associated with the Code amps?
I have the Code 100 combo.
I too have a problem with pairing, it worked the first time but not since. the phone detects the amp but the amp will not pair. Anyone got the answer, am I doing something wrong?
I just bought a Marshall Code100C from the Sweetwater sale.
Anyways I have 2 older Amdroid phone and NONE can get the Code Gateway App.
But my Newest LG Android phone can download the Marshall Gateway App and install it.
Problem is when I turn on the Code 100C and Turn on The Gateway App on my Android phone
it does NOT find the Marshall 100C and I downloaded the Newest Firmware for the Marshall 100C.
What can be my problem?.Thanks allllll....JT
I recently bought this amp for band rehearsals as it was a bit more powerful than my previous marshall 15watt, it is lightweight and with presets plus footswitch I was hoping to ditch my pedal board. We rehearse in a village hall which has a hearing aid loop system and the Code 25 seems particularly sensitive to it. If the volume turned above a quarter turn it triggered significant feedback particularly on settings with high treble. Unfortunately the loop system is in a tamper proof cabinet which we are not allowed to touch. Has anyone else had a similar problem and know a workaround?
My other issue was bluetooth pairing with my phone but reading through the Forum it appears this is a "feature". If I can't resolve both these issues it is going back to the shop next week to find an alternative amp that works for me.
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?
It took more than a year, but still!
Finally the annoying Bluetooth problem is fixed!
The amp turns on Bluetooth after power on, reconnects to the smartphone automatically without manual pairing and the application works fine (there's some problem with application scaling on LG G7 due to screen resolution, but I can live with that).
Thank you for this update, Marshall!
Even if the process was soooo slow that the 1-year warranty ended, it's good to know that you didn't abandon this product :)
Honestly I thought that we won't get any updates and I was surprised to see the Gateway application update and checked the forum just in case.
Hello. I have a Marshall Code 100 Head, 4 12 cabinet and the 2 12 combo amp. Absulutely love these amps. I also have the 3 way footswitch. What I can't figure out, is how to be able to turn off and on the REVERB from the foot pedal. Is there a way for this? It defaults to allow you to access the Distortion, Modulation and Delay but what about the reverb? Any ideas?
I recide to open my code 50 cabinet. It was not just a simple sound change matter. For me this cabinet is the low point in the project. With this upgrade I believe now th speaker moves freely. Of coarse you have all those open cabinets advantage, more crystallinity, less punch low freequencies, more spacial sound distribution (less directionality)... For me the stage effect was quite positive. Some time ago I was really deciding to kick it out but now I am very satisfied with this little amp.
I was just searching a couple websites for the Code 100W combo amp and it appears to be removed from some websites while one stated that this amp was no longer available. Did Marshall discontinue this amp? If so, are they planning on replacing it or just moving forward with the 25W, 50W, and 100W head? Why was it discontinued?
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
I've owned my code 50 for about a year and a half now and I've never had any problems with it. Yesterday I was playing and after a while it just died, not that it just wasn't giving out any sound, it just didn't have any power. The display wasn't on, the lights on the buttons weren't on and my foot switch wasn't on. I made sure the power lead was plugged in, I tried using a different wall socket and I changed the fuse in the plug but nothing is working. Does anyone have any idea what it could be/how it can be fixed?
Is the CODE™412 4x12-inch Angled Electric Guitar Speaker Extension Cabinet discontinued? If so, then why? I did purchased one 2 years ago.
My online dealer no longer has it listed; instead, they have listed, the CODE™212 2x12-inch Angled Electric Guitar Speaker Extension Cabinet ― which I do plan on buying ― however, I still would like to purchase another CODE™412.
