I seem to have the same issue on my Floorboard's Wah pedal. I can activate the function itself in stepping with my toes on it (red LED lits), but when going back and forth with the wah pedal, nothing happens. After digging around a bit I found 2 links that might describe the problem. Suggest to give it a try - I certainly will do it during the next couple of days. Let you know about any success.
whish a happy christmas - cheers - markus

UPDATE: got the Wah Pedal back to life :-)
So her's what I did:
1st) resistor film strips were OK.
2nd) I checked both of the transistor (Q1/Q2) on the small PCB (the one right beneath the Pedals) - but could not detect any visual damage to them. So I thought I'd simply replace the one for the Wah Pedal. But that did not fix it - and I reverted this.
3rd) I checked the PCB for any cold/broken solder joint - but couldn't see any. However, from my experience as a radio technician - I thought it could not do any harm to re-solder the whole PCB, which was done quite quickly as there are not so many solder joints on it.
4th) I cleaned the RJ45 jacket (on the middle PCB), using a glass fibre pen (in th eUS you should be able to get this at Radioshack)
At the end I now don't exactly know what finally fixed the issue here, cleaning the RJ45 or re-soldering the small PCB - but to be honest - I don't care ;-)
All of the above took me less than half an hour - and the Pedal is fully back to life.
Best whishes - Markus
