Has anyone else been having problems finding the amp on bluetooth? Some days my iphone 6 can find it other days it can't. I feel like marshall abandoned the code amps. Does anyone know if they will be releasing a firmware update soon?
I've had a DSL40c for a year or two, and it worked fine until a few months ago. While playing, the sound cut out and there was a slight burning smell. I replaced all tubes and pre amps and it worked fine in testing, but then did the same thing when I got it home. Repair guy thought it was a pre amp issue so changed those out again. It worked fine in testing, and then did the same thing again when we got it home. This time when we turned it back on, it would work, but sound would go up and down sporatically with some popping and crackling. Replaced the tubes again, and it worked fine for an hour. Then the sound cut out, and we noticed it would not switch channels. After turning it off and letting it cool down, we turned it on again and it worked fine and channels would change. I'm not sure what to do at this point. My weekend routine of dropping the amp off and then getting it back (with high-hopes) has gotten old. The problems have occurred while plugged straight into the guitar, as well as through a pedal board. Also, the problems have occurred via multiple power sources in different locations (i.e. not always through the same wall socket).
Thanks for your help
There's a noticeable bit of digital noise/fizz in the output. Fiddling with gain, volume, presence and resonance settings seems to help a bit. Upping the gate settings only cuts it out when you're not playing, otherwise it pops back in as soon as you start, only now with sustain and response issues associated with setting the threshold too high.
I've seen this issue noted on other boards, and the problem seems to be rooted in the signal processor. Does Marshall have a fix in the works?
Here are the videos of the defect
This amp sounded like this since day one I always thought it was maybe just the effects but soon realised after using the clean channel turning off all the fx and amps and also having people look at it I realised that theres something seriously wrong with it. I tried contacting you guys for that 5 year warranty especially since its defective but have not gotten a response. Its been almost a year that I've been trying to figure whats wrong with it but even person I ask has no clue I've searched and searched and have found no such issue similar to mine. I would like to get an explaination of the issue and see if there is a solution or maybe a replacement if possible thank you.
I broke out my old mg 30dfx and bought the PEDL-90008 for it but nothing happens when I plug it in. Is that the correct footswitch for my amp?
I've noticed that there is rattling/jangling coming from the amp (not the speaker) when playing notes between low A and C and their respective octaves above. It sounds like it is coming from the EL34 valves - is this due to the way that they are mounted without spring dampers? They have not gone microphonic as far as I can tell, and are otherwise performing as expected, so I feel this is more a mechanical issue with the chassis/mounting, or it's just an undesirable characteristic of the valves themselves. What I'd ideally like to know is, do all Origin 20Cs do this or is this the first anyone has heard about this?
I've removed every external variable there could be, moving the amp to another location and isolating it from floor vibrations in the studio. I've taken the 'amp' out of the cabinet so that I could lightly tap the valves, and check the screws around the supports are not loose. You can generate the rattle (or very similar) just by tapping lightly with the handle of a screwdriver, on both valves. This is what I was expecting if it was just physical vibrations from the speaker causing them to rattle in sypmathy. The rattling sound does not get amplified, so it's not in the audio path.
It's enough to be offputting when tracking/practicing in the studio unless pushing out really high volume so that you can only hear the guitar. I play fairly clean a lot of the time so it is more obvious under those conditions.
Would really appreciate some advice. If the answer is, "It's the same for all and there's not much that can be done..." then ok, I just need to know. That said, I spotted there was some sort of similar issue perhaps on Class 5 amps that a kit was developed for to resolve? I may have misunderstood though.
If there is any further mechanical troubleshooting to be done then please let me know. I wouldn't want to void the warranty status if possible. For what it's worth, I'm a systems and support engineer for a large format mixing console company, so I'm competent enough to poke around as required... just figured someone may have alreday solved this one before I carry on!
Hey, I recently bought this amp (5 months ago) and it was working very well until a couple of days ago. Yesterday I turned on the amp and it's volume was very low on both channels. I had to put it all on maximum in the classic gain channel (Volume and Gain) to get a decent volume for practicing on my bedroom. I reseated all valves, but the problem continues. I also tested the valves hitting them with a pen, but there was no sound that could indicate a bad valve. What should I do?
Hello, I've noticed that the firmware update is only available for windows not mac. Is there any alternative way mac users can update? Or will this be an option in the future?
Habe mein Galaxy s5mini mit dem Code 50 Gekoppelt und kann auch Musik abspielen.
Auf die Gateway App kann ich allerdings nich zugreifen.
Ich Scane for Amps aber die Meldung Not Conneceded erschein immer wieder auf dem Display.
Habe die App schon neu Installiert,aber leider ohne Erfolg.
Wo liegt der Fehler?
Danke für eine Rückmeldung.
I know it's been asked before but my Marshall Code 50 sounds realy muffled. Playing a Tele through it just sounds really muddy and flat. Tried tweaking the settings for Presence and Resonance but it makes little difference. When I plug headphones in though it seems super clear. Any thoughts?
My Stanmore 2 recently stopped being able to connect to Spotify using the Spotify Connect feature.
I have done a factory reset and tried reconnecting to the internet again.
I tested the Alexa functions and those work, such as asking for the time and weather updates and they are fine, so its just the Spotify Connect.
The Marshall speaker shows up on the list of devices on the Spotify App that I can connect to but it just stays on "Connecting..." when selected.
I can connect fine to my PC and Echo device via Spotify Connect.
I recieved my Code 100H this week.
(FYI) I attempted the update with a MacBook Pro with USB-C, High Sierra 10.13.1, Chrome Browser. I was able to connect to the Code but the unit would not update. It was stalled on the progress bar on the unit at 0% and on the browser.
(FYI) I attempted the update on a Windows machine and was successful using the update utility and with Chrome Browser. The Code unit shows updating to 1.4.1 but the boot screen shows 1.11?
The Code 100H will not connect to any Bluetooth device I have. Windows, Mac, iPhone, or iPad. It does not even show up as a device and never has even out of the box. I am convienced it does not work. Is there a master reset button combo for the unit? I am out of ideas concerning the Bluetooth. It seems like I am not the only one having issues with the Bluetooth. If this can't work consistently I am considering returning the unit. Even the simplest device can connect with Bluetooth and hold a connection. My Code 100H won't even show up as a device to connect to. Please advise.

Hi, is it possible to see the Amps I have registered on my profile?
No response when I tirn on mu Stanmore speaker. No lights, no sound, nothing.
What can I do to fix it?
I don't know quite how to use this. It's probably so simple a chimp could figure it out - that must be it. I'm so scattered that I've gone below chimpanzee on the ??? scale. Please help if anyone has or knows how to acquire this manual . Thanks in advance - seriously. D.L.
When I try to hook my amp to my laptop, a box appears at the bottom of the screen that says code 50 not connected. I'm no computer genius and I'm sure I'm missing something simple but, how do I get it to connect?
Hi. First just to say that a am generally very happy with the CODE50 & it is definitely filling a gap to provide great practice tones with aux input from LickLibrary & my son's vdrum set to jam along! I have a coupe of items I wanted to put out there to the forum:
So the fizz - has anyone else noticed a very high end (treble) fizz or harsh crackle to the tone on most 'unsaturated' presets? It almost sounds like a digital clipping at the high end of the spectrum to my ear. It is definitely worse when using my 2015 Gibson Les Paul Less+ (which has the brass zero fret nut) like the amp is reacting to some of the pronounced higher frequencies on this guitar but it is also noticable with other guitars using a standard nut material.
The cabinet resonance I guess is due to the relatively light weight MDF that the cab is constructed of which appears to vibrate a little too readily has the master gets to about 1.5 / 10. I have dabbled a little with the resonance / presence settings under the speaker cab which has helped control it a little but I would be interested in any other ideas for reducing that boooom that can wash out the tone. I do have a 4 ohm Celestion G12T-75 from a long broken Marshall SS 50w combo which I am thinking of trying out - it is a physically heavier speaker than the CODE one pre-installed but I don't think structurely this will be a problem for the cabinet. I would appreciate any other ideas - anyone added noise suppression foam to the inside of the cab (as used in noisy PC towers) or anything else?
hi went to buy a new dsl40cr recently told by salesman no longer avaible.is this true.. if so will there be a new 2019 dsl 40 availble in near future.thanks
I am wondering if anyone has a preset that will work for using an external effects pedal into my Code 50? I only want to run the external effects (distortion, reverb, delay) and nothing fromthe amp itself. What I am seeing is that even with all effects (amps, modeling, etc.) turned off on the Code my pedal into it sounds like garbage. Very muffled, bassy, and muddy. I have the EQ on the amp set so that the bass is all the way down and mid/tebble are all the way up and it still sounds terrible. I don't want to have to edit and mess with every patch on my old Zoom GFX8. The pedal doesn't sound like this into my old 40 Watt Fender bassman.
Any advice on setting up the Code to sound good with external effects would be greatly appreciated.
