Pod HD500X weird problem

Recommended Posts

  Hi, I came here hoping that someone might enlighten me about the problem I'm facing with my device. When I start my Pod, I can see on the screen that the arrow on the different effects on the preset goes all the way to the left. When I use the arrows to go right, it doesn't do anything as if I was holding the left arrow button. I tried to go into the settings and I/O but I can't navigate un the menu, since I need to go right to changes pages and when I try, it stays on the first page. I cleaned the buttons and checked to see if anything got stuck under the plastic but I found nothing.

 

  Also, I don't know if it's related to the pevious problem but my tap and loop switches are acting weird. When I hold the tap button the start the tuner, it goes off of it when I take my foot off. When I leave tuner mode, the loop mode activates and I can't get out of it unless I push several times on the button.

 

  What would you recommend me to do? Reset to factory settings? Ask a post-sale customer service?

 

Thanks a lot for your answers.

Won't hurt to try a reset, but I'd be surprised if it makes any difference. Sounds like just a dead button and footswitch...in which case, it's service ticket time.

Thank you both for answering, I reset my POD without much hope and indeed, it did nothing. I think I'll keep my POD and repair it when I have the means to. It does seem like there is an internal problem with the switches but I didn't want to go to far into dismantling the device. Thanks again!

Emphasis on GOOD contact cleaner. 

Don't try buying the stuff for a dollar from a Chinese dealer on Amazon. 

 

What would you rather do, spend a couple extra bucks on the right cleaner or spend the money on a new 500x after it shorts out.

And don't be fooled by a cheap price on brand name either. 

If every where is selling something for $25 and you see someone selling it for $8...
