Faulty FX3/Reverb Pot
by satchmaster33 on 2011-12-13 02:23:13.3900

I am looking for an answer as to why when I turn my FX3 knob, it flutters between the effect i'm choosing and the current reverb effect name and mix level. I can't choose an effect on the 3rd FX knob because of this, unless i manually set the effects by pressing the presets button.

Also, when ever I turn my Reverb knob to the mix level I want... it stays on the chosen level for a split second and then shoots back to 0% mix level. The odd part about this is that whenever I press the knob in really hard while turning it at the same time, it doesn't shoot back to 0% mix level until I take my hand off the knob and it's not being pushed in anymore.

Something tells me that since these two faulty knobs are right next to each other, that there is a specific reason to why this is happening.

PLEASE HELP! Very frustrated... Thank you.

The first thing I would suggest would be to reinstall the latest flash memory of the amp in case there is a software problem creatings these knob values to be misread. Instructions on how to do so are available at the link below:">">

If this does not fix the problem, it could be a hardware problem with the pots in questions. For this I would suggest that you have a Line 6 Service Center assess the amp for repair. You can locate a Line 6 Service Center near you at the link below:">">

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
