Please help!

I have my original Vetta sitting in a room in my house for a while and I decided to dust it off and bring it on out to jam with.  Everything works on it EXCEPT for the EDIT function.  I can NOT edit any effects or change any settings by hitting this button.  All my knobs work and I can change their settings, but when I hit let's say EDIT and then another button like StompBox 1 so I can change the settings, the screen appears like it wants to change to the different screen (very quick, under a second), but the screen won't go to the edit screen.  So I cannot change any effect setting or change what type of effect for that matter.  Any info is appreciated.

Try running the diagnostics (link to instructions below) to see how the buttons respond.  The other two things it could be are the battery or just needing a fresh O/S flash.

Hey thanks for the reply.  I figured out it had something to do with my "save" button.  It was staying on, acting weird but yet it didn't seem stuck or sticky or anything.  But once I played with it enough and got it to shut off, I was then able to play around with the edit button and make changes.  I think the issue was that the unit was always trying to do a "save", even though I didn't ask for that and had no idea it was trying to do so.  Now that I have the edit button working, I was kind of disappointed to find out (hey it's been a while, I totally forgot what I had) that I had version 1.10  I "assumed" that way back when I let someone do an upgrade that it was to the latest and greatest 2.50 version but apparently not.  So next on my agenda is upgrading to 2.5, but I don't really feel comfortable doing it for I know you can fry the Vetta if you do it wrong.  I'd like to see what options I have as far as having a professional do it, and also maybe backing up and restoring my patches once it's upgraded, we'll see.  Thank you so much for the info, and I "might" consider your product once I have a little extra cash for things are very tight right now.  

On another note, can you tell me what you'd recommend the settings be on the Vetta if I'm plugging into a Marshall 4x12 cabinet.  On the back of the cab, it has 2 inputs, and on the top left input it says 4ohms, and the top right of iinput it says 16ohms.  I "think" these are the recommended mono settings because on the bottom of both inputs, it says 8ohms on both sides.  That being said, I should set the Vetta at 4 ohms if I'm pluging into the cab with only 1 cable and in mono, but set it to 8 ohms if I'm using 2 cables and using it in stereo right?  Does that sound correct?  The user guide threw me off for I think the settings for a Line6 4x12 cabinet are a little different because the ohms are different than from what on a Marshall cab.  Any info is appreciated, and thanks again for your help.

1st off, no problem.  That is not my product, BTW.  It was just the one place I knew that the instructions to the diagnostics instructions lived.  As for upgrading, it is pretty painless AS LONG AS YOU USE A MIDISPORT UNO.  No other midi devices are supported as working.  Do you have a picture of the back of your cab?  Without seeing the text, I don't want to assume how it is reading.  The Vetta is different than other amps when you plug in from multiple jacks in that it treats the left and right as separate outputs for impedance.  If set to 8 ohms for example, then both the right and the left are 8 ohm impedance.

I suspect you may need to replace the battery. The Vetta will do a lot of wierd stuff as they begin to die and the voltage drops below spec. It's little brain gets scrambled like it has Alheimers or something.  It's a good starting place and can't hurt anyway.

lollipop - I think he was saying the button was physically stuck causing the issue.  I had a similar issues years ago.  One I clicked the save button in and out a few times and got it to release properly, Everything was fine.  Never had the problem again.

If that's the case it's a bit easier to deal with as long as he doesn't have to replace the switch. that could be a pain unless you're used to working on PC boards. They are PC mounted switches and some are mounted in sub assemblies of more than one switch.
