  1. Hi There Everyone, Looking for some feedback from those that have had LCD issues. My screen looks like it has a big splash in it, like when you splash liquid on a surface. This area is a bright orange making the screen unreadable except for a very faint portion in the top left portion. It was fine the last time I used it and when I turned it on now this is how it looked. I imagine there really isn't much in the way of a fix or a hack to get the screen back to the way it was and if there is a fix it probably isn't worth fixing. I'm using GEARBOX to create patches and have a FBV Shortboard MKII. If any of you have had this issue let me know. Thanks.
  2. An update to the issue. I created the same patch in a different bank and the wah worked perfectly. Deleted the old patch and put the new one in its place. The wah worked as it should. Go figure.
  3. I have the parameters set for zero to 100 which I'm assuming are heel (fully open) and toe (fully closed) postions. On the effects page the sweep shows it going through the full range.
  4. I recalibrated the pedal but it made no difference. The volume pedal works as it should.
  5. Hi There, I just started having an issue with the Wah effect on my PODHD500X. I have the Wah assigned to EXP1 and it turns on when I push down on the pedal but the sound is very faint and there's very little difference in the frequencies from full open to fully closed. It was working fine until last night and tonight it started doing this. Anyone here run into this problem before? Thanks.
  6. Just tried to download Line 6 License Manager. Windows doesn't recognize the file (.dmg).
  7. I downloaded Line 6 Updater and it doesn't work at all. Each time I try to open it it says its stopped working. I noticed that Line 6 Monkey is still available as a download. Line 6 Updater seems to only be for certain LIne 6 hardware. The list doesn't include my PODXT or my HD500X.
  8. Hi and thanks for your reply. I have Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit. I've got the latest version of GearBox installed, 3.72.0. I didn't realize Line 6 Monkey doesn't install updates any more so thanks for the info. I'll try changing my USB cable. I'll post back if I find the problem. Cheers!
  9. Hi There, I have a PODXT that I resurrected to use with my computer and MKII floorboard but am unable to load the latest software update shown for it when I run Line 6 Monkey. I have a 4.0 version and the newest is 4.2. The new drivers are being downloaded but I can't get the installer program to work. I get directed to a link to Line 6 that's supposed to let me be able to install the drivers but then I get a message that there are no new updates available. I'm having issues with Gear Box communicating with my PODXT as well. When I try to save a new tone to it I get an "asynchronous time out" message. Anyone here run into this problem and know how to fix it? Thanks.
  10. Boy, I'm really losing it. Thanks for the reference. I must have glossed over it. There is one thing, when you set the Exp Pedal for volume or wah, the pedal must be in the correct position for that effect. Exp 2 must be turned on for volume and Exp1 must be turned on for Wah when you assign the expression pedal. Thanks.
  11. Ok. Do you assign each in the controllers section? A little bit of guidance here would be helpfull. Thanks.
  12. I'm not sure what you mean by manually. Are you referring to using the POD to assign the Vol to Exp 2 and the Wah to Exp 1? My understanding is that each of them is automatically assigned when you choose volume and wah. Can you expand on this? Thanks.
  13. Hello there Silverhead, My apologies for not getting back to your response sooner. Some family things have kept me tied up. Thanks for replying to my post. You think we're finally getting some spring weather? It's about friggin time! Got back to my POD HD500X and can't seem to get the Vol & Wah to work properly, either through the edit software or right on the POD itself. When I turn the Wah off it stops working as a Wah but stays stuck in the closed position (acts like a parked wah). The volume pedal works but the sound is very trebly because the Wah is stuck in the closed position. My other patches where I have the Vol & Wah already set up are working fine. I must be doing something wrong but for the life of me I can't figure it out. Anyways, thanks for the help and keep looking for that sunshine, we may see it yet.
  14. Thanks silverhead. Didn't make sense to me that doing a firmware installation is a factory reset. When I think of factory reset I think of how my POD was when I bought it, with none of the firmware updates installed. I will definitely try re-installing the HD Edit program and the Line 6 driver first. By the way, I"m in Ontario Canada as well. Thanks for your help.
  15. I wanted to reset my POD HD500X back to the factory presets but it seems that the video that's available by LIne 6 Tony is not correct. This video shows you how to update the firmware using Line 6 Monkey, not how to reset the unit back to its factory settings. I've found some other videos on you tube but to be honest, I'm not sure I want to attempt this unless the procedure was created by Line 6. Is there anywhere on the site that actually shows how to do this or has written instructions by Line 6? I find this a bit disconcerting since I own a few Line 6 products. Doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling at all. Sometimes a factory reset is the only way to fix the POD when it starts to glitch. Thanks.
