Spider IV 75 + FBV Express - "locks up" - no volume
on 2010-11-12 13:49:06
I am having occasional issues with my amp. When pedal is connected, it sometimes "locks things up"........I can use the tuner, change effects etc....but I get NO volume/sound from amp.
I get around it through tiral and error, connecting/disconnecting cables and power amp off/on etc.....takes a while..and does not seem to have a "right way to fix" it.
1) What causes this to occur?
2) Is this a known product defect? Is there a "Fix"? or should I send it all in for repair?
3) Is there a way to "reset" in a simpler manner should it occur again
It is truly annoying - two weeks ago we were 10 mins to the gig starting and I could not get it to work......arrrgh.
Whatever you can provide in the way of info would be great.

The first thing I would try is a factory reset on the Spider IV:
Hold down the A (or clean) button as you turn on the power and hold the button for 5-8 seconds.
Does the issue only occur when the pedal is connected to the amp?
