Over the past couple of weeks, I have been having some problems with a couple of patches.  I would select a patch and it would be at a very low volume (all my patches were previously leveled).  All other patches except are at the correct volume.

 

I have flashed the firmware and re-installed the set to no avail.

 

I did notice something weird.  If I double click one of the 2 patches in HD Edit, the volume increases to normal level.  If I change away from the patch using the foot switches and come back to the same patch, it is low again.

 

Anyone have any insights to the problem?

by any chance, did you resetted and calibrated your POD after reflashing it?.. it's the normal procedure

if you didn't, you could have volume related problems for that reason

I had this same problem some time ago. while I was setting the levels in the mixer in the GUI. Also, it happened with the pod reset & calibrated. All I could come up with was somehow that patch got corrupt. So I uninstalled the drivers and HD500 Edit with Line 6 uninstaller, restarted the computer (Win 7) then reinstalled the drivers and HD Edit. reflashed (not saving presets), reset, recalibrated and after that I was good.

I mostly play at home  and am always having fun learning how to play guitar so when I post a reply to try and help give ideas you know where I'm coming from. Rock-On!! Oh, and if I don't respond promptly I'm probably playing guitar or my computer locked up from multitasking 'cause I'm using Gear Box, HD500 Edit, Audacity and tab filled browsers all at the same time, Hahahaaaa. Surprisingly enough my 'puter handles the load more times than not. Lastly I'm not a salesman, I'm not trying to sell anyone anything here.

Thanks Hurghanico & Brazzy.  I will try to reset tonight.  Good idea.  However, the reason I re-flashed was because I was getting these issues in the first place.  Will keep you posted...

Well the Reset certainly did help some other problems I had such as correct the FS6 not working (I had to rearrange my banks without FS6).  The volume levels are more consistent now.  I re-leveled one patch and all seems to be good for the moment.  I have a gig tomorrow night and I don't trust the POD at the moment.  Hopefully all will go well as usual.

 

Thanks so much for the suggestions.

Well... It didn't go very well.  When I did a sound check at the gig last night, my FS6, Bank down and Volume pedal all were not responding.  I flashed the memory again, performed a System Reset like last time, but the POD didn't return to a functional state.  I had to use channels A and B on the DT Amp to have a Clean and Dirty sound with no effects.  Bummer!

 

I brought the POD today to a repair center and hopefully they can fix it.  VERY unreliable for gigging.

Thanks for the update, I've never experienced foot switch issues. I hope you get it fixed bud. Some people gig with them ok. I don't gig with it......yet. I just use them at home for recording my own stuff.
