ground trouble " I think"

when pluged into my podxt live, with head phones I get a lot of noise. I I touch the strings, or the trem the noise does not go away. If I touch the input jack, or any metal on the pod xt housing it goes quiet. Is this a ground issue? The ground seems to be solidly attached to the spring claw on the back.

That's what it sounds like to me. I wouldn't know what to do besides having it looked at. Thats wierd it doesnt go quiet when you touch the other things you mentioned.

Re: ground trouble " I think"

Does it only happen with headphones or is this something that happens without them as well?

Um - have you checked that the ground wire hasn't detached itself from the back of the pot? (I know - dumb question......)
