  1. Oh, it turned out it's not my first post - just haven't been here for a while :)
  2. Hi guys! This is my first post on this forum, and unfortunately it's not very positive. I think the known issue with the expression pedal on Helix LT happened and with my unit now. The expression pedal doesn't work as expected anymore. I can clearly see a movement (displacement) of the chassis inside the unit. The pedal squeaks when I press it by my foot and sometimes gets stuck during movement. Today this squeaking got quite destructive during a quiet part of the worship service when I played swells. I've been using the pedal only for a few months so far but the unit itself is out of seller warranty (Long & McQuade). I've already submitted a support ticket, though. Would appreciate any ideas about how to get it fixed. Youtube video:
  3. The problem is resolved. The reason was in oxidation areas on the motherboard. I removed them using a contact cleaner and everything works as expected. It might be due to the cold storage conditions especially in winter (I kept it near the window)
  4. Hello everyone, I have an issue with my POD HD500 unit. When I turn it on, footswitchers FS1-FS4 don't work right away. It's needed to keep the unit turned on for several minutes ("warm up") or reboot it several times or switch different channels to get footswitchers working. The things get worse because there is no any predictable behavior - sometimes only 1 switcher doesn't work but at the next time it might be 2 or 3 of them. I tried to clean switchers contacts but it didn't help. Also I tried to re-install the latest firmware and reset Flash using Right Arrow + Power On. It didn't help either. It's reproducible on both factory and user presets (e.g. on A1: Son Of Plexi) I would be very appreciate for any other suggestions how to get it fixed.
