FBV Shortboard MKii Wah/volume stays at value 0

Recommended Posts

Biggest issue now is that when i plug in the FBV, i have no sound at all (as the volume value is 0)

As from what I read, it could be the photo-electric sensor being broken. As I have no intention to have it repaired. Is there a workaround?

I would like to just leave out the pedal. (so no wah/volume control) Been trying to do this with FBV control, but it's not working. In USB mode i can 'unassign' the pedals and toe switch, but when I unplug usb, the setting is lost.


Recalebrating doesn't help, as the cell isn't working. (When I shine in the hole with a flashlight, it 'sees' 127, but that's just indicating that it's not working as it should right?)

Well, the only workaround that I have found is to put the 'heel' volume from the pedal to 100%.

I did that for 4 custom patches that I made. But the problem stays with all the 100's other patches: when I select a patch, volume goes to zero.

My main issue is that I can't leave out the pedal, just doing nothing at all.


Other question: would it be expensive to have the photoelectric cell fixed?
