Spider IV 150 Combo power cycling.

Recommended Posts

Hey Folks in need of a wiser person than I am.

I have a Spider iv 150 combo and the recommended ( at the time ) The FBV Express MKII pedal. 

When I plug my MKII Via CAT5 cable my spider iv combo amp starts to power cycle off and then back on and it is still on the same settings as when it turned off. Only happens when the Mkii is plugged in. I disconnected the MKii's CAT% cable at the unit and every thing was fine. So it has to be the pedal right? All software is up to date and it has no physical damage, never even left my guitar room.

 

Thanks in advance

Sounds like the pedal could be at fault, but check with a different CAT5 cable, and check the connector pins on both the amp and pedal - sometimes they can get bent out of position.

I checked them and they all look good. I'm a little upset about having to buy a new pedal. This one has less than 10 hours on it and I had a XT live go out on me before I bought this set up after only having it a year and a half. Thanks for the help guys, Appreciate it.

When did you buy the pedal?  Maybe its still under warranty?
