When I press joystick to open model list on Helix floor 3.0 nothing happens.

Recommended Posts

When I press joystick to open model list on Helix floor 3.0 nothing happens.

I have upgrade Helix floor and HX Edit to 3.0. In HX Edit I can see and load up new models from the list.

In Helix floor the model list will not show up when I press down the joystick. I can move joystick around.

It worked in 2.92.

Can someone help me?

Not a problem on mine. Do a complete backup and a setlist backup (just to be safe), then try a factory reset (reboot holding fs9+fs10).

That did not help.

I have restored the HX Edit several times on Windows 10 but I can not get the joystick to work.

When I connect the pc to the Helix. HX Edit says the Helix is up to date

Do you have other suggestions?

I had a joystick fail on me once, but it was the jog-wheel one, over on the right near the volume.

 

It seems that the tags needed to be re-soldered. Sent it away for repair and it's been fine ever since.

 

Could be the same thing on the preset selector wheel. Maybe time to have to looked at by a Line 6 tech.

 

Hope this helps.

If you're SURE you've installed HX Edit v3.0, and you're SURE that Helix FW is v3.0, and a Factory Reset didn't fix the problem, you might have a broken joystick.

Open a Support Ticket.

Since your next question is "It worked before the update, why doesn't it work now?", the answer to that question is, "$h1t happens" :-)

The key question is, can you select things and add them to your signal chain in HX Edit?  If so, the problem is in your joystick hardware and has nothing to do with the upgrade.  Call for a service repair ticket.

Yes i can

I do not think the joystick is broken. I can move the joystick right, left, up down but when i push down the menu will not show up

same thing happened to me the moment i updated once.. (back in the new snapshot update days) still haven’t been able to get it fixed as the repair place is a few hours away (and i’m a poor musician lol). i just survived with helix edit.. i can’t imagine it was the updating process that killed it but it was strange timing

This same thing happened to me on my Helix floor.  I could do all other operations other than press it.  It's a fairly common solder point problem.  If it were related to the update you wouldn't be able to do the operation in HX Edit since HX Edit depends on the Helix firmware to actually accomplish that action.  If you can do it in HX Edit then the Helix firmware is working fine.

This sounds like a badly timed hardware fault to me.

To prove it start your Helix in test mode with FW 3&4 held down.

Select UI Test

Turn the Joystick - ENCJ value should change

Move the Joystick - JOY U D L R should go green

Press The Joystick - ECCJ should go green.

 

I had a similar problem with mine but I lost the rotation.

I just had a thought that you probably won't be able to select UI test because you need to push the joystick to do that.

That still proves the point though.

Tank you. That´s right

When I push down on the joystick to choose UI Test nothing happens.

I can navigate down but nothing happens when i push down on the menus.

I gone take it to service her in Norway. I hope they can solder it
