Not sure what generation. I bought it new through an Ebay vendor when I thought I might be needing it to use my POD Xt live about a year ago; I never really did wind up using it live and so just stored it. I recently pulled it out like I said and it doesn't function properly. It's probably 1st generation FBV Shortboard. I don't see model number on it but there are some numbers on the back end. I'll attach a photo and try registering it.
Can you tell us which Line 6 hardware you are using with the Shortboard?
You mentioned that you were trying to use it with a PODxt Live, however, that product does not use the Shortboard as the POD already is a foot controller.
Please tell me how it is being used (what is it connected to) to have a better understanding of the problem.
That's a first generation Shortboard.
To me, that sounds like a hardware issue but the only real way to be clear on that is to rule out all of the variables.
Have you tried another CAT 5 cable?
Are you able to plug the Shortboard into another POD to rule out your POD's jack as a possible culprit?
Also, one thing you can check on your own is the main header and ribbon cable connection inside the Shortboard.
Under the LCD screen you should see a big header connection. Make sure the ribbon cable is seated securely into the header. If it's not, push it back in and use some silicone to set it in place.
I've seen that resolve similar issues in the past.

Tried all the recommended things, still the board will not work properly. Recently I bought another, this one used. It works fine with the Pod Xt. It definately is the unit. I tried to get an RMA but I don't have a receit since it's been over a year that I purchased it new on EBAY. Suggestions?
