Can't switch to C and D presets using footswitches
by rgatling on 2010-12-30 09:58:32

I just got my HD300, updated to 1.1 FW and have reset to factory default a few times.  I can calibrate the footswitch using footswitch D.

When I simply try to switch between A, B. C, D presets in a bank using the footswitches, when I try to go to C, the pod thinks I want to switch to a lower bank (as if I'm pressing C & D at the same time).  If I use the presets knob, I can rotate through the presets in each bank just fine.

Any clues on the issue with the footswitches?

you might try twisting the footswitch caps to make sure that the spring isn't misaligned and pushing a button.

my footwitches were a little tight when i first got it, but a few twists and it's operating as expected.

Thanks, Zap.  I've given your suggestion a try.  It seems that no matter what I do, switches A and C always want to send me up or down the banks.  Switches B and D seem to be working properly.

the common denominator is your B switch must be stuck... concentrate on that one... give it a little workout, push pull twist etc...

alternatively... you might have to exchange it...

Thanks, again.  Still working it...sometimes it works, sometimes not.  I'm going to exchange it and give a different one a go.
