No Leds Lit - Fbv Mkii

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

First post here so be gentle!!

I just bought a spider mkIV and the FBV MkII (looks unused) second hand. All of it was boxed and in immaculate condition. I plugged the FBV in and it initially flashes the volume / tuner leds then all go out (I have recalibrated it).

All functions work as it switches channels and does volume / wah but there are no leds lit up.

The FBV is recognised by my pc and I updated the firmware but it will not recognise the amp either so I thought I may have a cable problem (the cable was unused and was still in original packing).

I have tried another cat 5 cable but had the same results.

Any ideas as to what I could try?

Thanks,

Paul.

I can confirm that it is the original cable and it had never been previously used.

Thanks,

Paul.

Check the jack pins on both the FBV and amp (and cable ends) - its very easy for one of the pins to get bent out of shape and not make full contact.
