njglover Posted May 22, 2017 Share Posted May 22, 2017 Since I have owned the Helix, I have had occasional problems with the second footswitch from the left on the bottom row. I think that is footswitch 7. I generally use that as my first switch, so it gets the most use. Sometimes it double triggers - activates then quickly activates again. Last time that started happening was several months ago and it just kinda went away, so I ignored it. It started happening again recently and I had a gig coming up, so I opened up the Helix and sprayed a little Deoxit on the switch. Well, now the switch works great, but the LED around it is acting up. The left half of the LED ring is one color while the right half is a different color. Except for red, it seems, which produces a full ring of one color. Some of the colors result in only half the ring being lit. Everything still works, so it's certainly usable, but I would (obviously) like to have it working correctly. I'm still within 1 year, so I'm sure I could send it out for warranty repair, but I have another gig in like 2 weeks and I suspect I don't want to chance it, so if there is something else I should try first, I am all ears.
