djspleen Posted June 8, 2013 Share Posted June 8, 2013 Hi. I've owned a Pod 2.0 for many years but I didn't have a floorboard until about a year ago when I purchased one on eBay. There was a Pod 2.0 unit included in the floorboard auction. I kept it as a spare since I had all of my settings on the Pod I already owned. I tested everything when I first received it and as far as I knew at that point it all was working fine (both the board and the Pod). I'm now thinking about selling this extra Pod so I'm trying it out to make sure it still works. Well...much to my surprise it doesn't! It started out fine but after a few minutes it switched to TUNER mode on its own. I thought that was strange, so I turned the tuner off by switching to a bank. It worked fine for a few more minutes but switched to TUNER mode again. It's a very intermittant kind of thing, sometimes it switches right away and sometimes it waits several minutes. And now in addition to that issue, it's acting like it's not getting any INPUT signal. When it does switch to TUNER it shows only a dash and it does not register that it hears any notes whatsoever. If I switch it to one of the banks there still is no sound output. I've tested the cables as well as my working Pod (and made sure my guitar volume was up) and everything works fine until I switch out to the backup Pod. I made sure the OUTPUT LEVEL is not at zero on the Pod and I've also turned, flipped and switched every available knob and button to see if something perhaps got dirty or wet or whatever while it was sitting on my shelf for the last year...no changes. It's now a soundless Pod that switches to TUNER mode all by itself. I did a factory reset (holding down UP and DOWN while powering up) but that made no difference. I didn't see that this issue was brought up here before, but maybe someone has some thoughts. If you do, please let me know! Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
