Hey guys !

I have a little problem and I don't understand its origin :

When I use the looper, I can record my loop and right after that all my footswitches are blocked except for the 7th and the 8th footswitches.

I didn't have that problem a few weeks ago, I updated my firmware, drivers, ...

Moreover, the first time it happened to me I switched my HD 500 off and on which settled it.
But it doesn't work anymore !

 

Maybe I should try to reset the pedal?

I prefer to ask before doing something wrong !

Thanks a lot !

Hey Guru !

The problem occured again, I reflashed the POD HD500 and it still happens.
I guess it must be a hardware problem then... :/

 

What do you think?

Crack it open and check your ribbon cables. Something may be loose or damaged. If it only happens when in looper mode, I would say hardware defect, especially if the reflash/reset/recal didn't fix it.

Hey Iknowathingortwo !

Thanks for your reply, I checked and everything seems to be fine concerning the ribbon cable.

In fact, the FS6 switch is blocked all the time, the others worked fine right after the reflashing when I did it for the first time.

There must be a problem with the FS6 switch, my warranty is over anyway so maybe I should bring it to the shop I got it from and ask for help.

Thanks anyway guys !

Did you try some electronics contact cleaner into the switches? Unplug it obviously. Buy a can of the aerosol contact cleaner and spray all the foot switches one at a time and press them several times to work the cleaner in and try and clean out any gunk. Worth a try!
