SPARK - unusable sound - muddy jumbled notes - awful

I have now had my spark for over 12 months - I am at my wits end - I’ve tried new premium guitar cables - running through three different guitars - including a pretty high end USA Fender Tele - cannot get any note clarity or definition- to the point that my spark is unplayable - sitting idle - only usable as a rather attractive and expensive desk ornament - I have made repeated efforts to get help (advice) from customer support - to no avail - to make matters worse I attempted another futile SPARK practice session last week - only to be greeted by very a set of very much unwanted - in app purchase options for the Hendrix Experience package - if I wanted in app purchases I would have bought myself a gaming PC and not a SPARK practice amp - this is totally unsatisfactory - PG - please help

@chris-6 This is exactly what mine is doing. Did you get a fix?

My Spark has just developed a fault making it unusable. When a jack plug is inserted into the input it makes a horrible noise very similar to radio interference. This changes in intensity when a different setting is selected.
it was suggested that I carryout a factory reset and firmware update. But this has made no difference. I have had the unit over two years but if doesn't get used that often. Are there any suggestions as to what else I could try.

When I’ve experienced this problem, it turned out to be either a bad cable, or a 90 degree cable plug that became dislodged by a control knob when moved. Assume you’ve ruled out a damaged/degraded cable and guitar jack.
If you haven’t already, I’d suggest you try cleaning the input jack. Debris could be preventing full contact with the plug which results in poor grounding and the interference noise you described.
