Have you updated the firmware in your FBV and amp? The Shortboard does not have a tuner built-in, it is only duplicating the amp's tuner. if it is 'off', then the firmware update may help.

Ty man, but I know there isn't a seperate tuner in the floorboard. The thing I can't explain is the fact, that the floorboard is tuning in flat.
Like I wrote E-flat a.s.o.
That's strange and has i.m.h.o. nothing to do with updating firmware. The amp itself tunes correct at A-440. No problem with that.
One could suppose there is an option to tune in flat and # but I can't find a way to change the tuning. The sign for "flat" (can't type the thing) is visible at the floorboard. Looks like a b.

There are two possible causes:
1) Hardware - this could only be fixed at a factory authorized service center.
2) Software - first attempt to fix the problem is to download and install the FBV firmware update. If that doesn't work, then bring it to a factory authorized service center for evaluation and repair/replacement.
Alternately, if this is still under store warranty for wherever you bought it, bring it back there for exchange.

Thanks man. I went back to the store. No problem whatsoever. I got another unit in replacement and that one works fine. Now it works properly. But, I still hang to my tuningfork between the teeth too. :-)
