Pod 2.0 Floorboard Trem/chorus Button Malfunction?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to use the POD2.0 in manual mode (Bank 0) with a floorboard.  What I need is for the floorboard buttons to act like a simple stomp box -- turn on/off Chorus, Reverb, Delay, EQ, Drive/Boost and Distortion.  For a few fleeting hours, it did just that.  SInce then, it has mysteriously changed it's behavior.  Instead of affecting TREM/CHORUS, it seems to randomly toggle the other buttons.  Like, no effects on at all, click TREM/CHORUS button, Reverb comes on, or maybe Distortion, or maybe Reverb+Delay+Distortion.  Sometimes Chorus toggles, but mostly it doesn't.  What gives?

 

I am using the Black Panel Amp Model, if that makes any difference.  I have also tried resetting the POD (power-on with Up and Down arrows depressed) with no change in behavior.

 

Also, the Volume Pedal doesn't work.

 

Any clues?  I bought these units new 10 years ago, but the floorboard spend most of those years boxed up in storage.  Haven't been able to successfully register tham online.

 

Thanks,

 

Bill

Have you tried using a different Cat5 cable between the POD and the Floorboard? That would be the first thing I would check out. The symptoms you describe kind of fit that.

Yes! That fixed the problem.  I went ahead and sprayed some contact cleaner into the CAT5 sockets of the floorboard and POD for good measure and the buttons are working.  I shoulda thought of that, but was just not considering the CAT5.

 

Thanks!

Prostříkat oba konektory R45 například Kontaktolem, potom mechanicky vhodným nástrojem /mnÄ› se osvÄ›dÄil mini Å¡roubovák/ opatrnÄ› oÅ¡krábat a srovnat kontaktní pružinky uvnitÅ™ konektoru, rozmontovat Floorboard a prostříknout a procvakat vÅ¡echny spínaÄe , nechte si pÅ™elisovat konektory na koncích šňůry vždy, když jsou už unavené nebo ulomené nebo nÄ›jak fixujte, potom vÅ¡echno funguje, rozchodil jsem tak pedál ,který byl nefunkÄní pÅ™es pÄ›t let! No, pÅ™i vší úctÄ› a oddanosti Line6, použití tÄ›chto R45 konektorů je opravdu hodnÄ› diskutabilní, na podiu má koncovka jen velmi velmi malou životnost. Eda
