Yamaha has issued a notice about a potential fire hazard related to the Line 6 Relay G10 series of wireless adapters.
In a statement about the recall the brand noted that since the line’s introduction four years ago it has “become aware of four incidents of extreme overheating occurring in the transmitter during recharging.”
Yamaha also noted that the optional charging accessory, the Line 6 Relay G10T USB Charging Cable “can also contribute to extreme overheating in the transmitter. The Relay G10T USB Charging Cable cannot be repaired and the concern cannot be remedied by a firmware update to other Relay G10 products. If you purchased a Relay G10T USB Charging Cable, please discontinue using it. Owners of the cable who provide satisfactory proof of its destruction will receive a refund.”
For owners of the Relay G10, G10s and G10T and users of a G10T Transmitter with wireless-capable Line 6 Spider V/Spider V MkII or Yamaha THR-II amplifiers, its advice was to”update your product to the latest firmware as soon as possible.”
