Pod HD500 Freezing

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

 

I have had my Pod HD500 from new for a number of years now.  Up until the last few weeks it has been working flawlessly.

 

However......

 

Recently it has started freezing/crashing.  To start with it would do it when changing between two particular patches so I figured it was something about the patches it didn't like.  I reflashed the firmware and started again and everything was OK for a couple of weeks.

 

Now it freezes when I switch it on.  All the lights and the screen light up as they should, however none of the buttons work and I get no sound from it at all.  It's also worth noting that the LED on the Tap footswitch is on constantly rather than blinking.

 

Today I have noticed that while the unit is frozen if I start HD Edit sometimes it will come out of the freeze and start working, however then when I close HD Edit it freezes again.

 

I have the unit connected to my PC via USB and also MIDI as I use the pedals start backing tracks in iTunes.

 

Any ideas?

 

Regards,

 

Rob

Hi toneman,

 

I think I have discovered the problem.  I had the MIDI out set to Out/Thru and I'm guessing that set up some sort of feedback loop.  I have now set it to Out only and the problem appears to have gone away.

Regards,

Hey there, I seem to be having the same problem with my HD500. I was wondering where to I find the section to change 'Out/Thru/ to 'Out' only? 

 

Thanks

That would be in the global settings. Hold down the View button for a few seconds to access the Settings menu pages. Use the right arrow to scroll through the pages until you see the MIDI page(s). The setting you are looking for should be there.
