I’ve just bought a Pod XT Pro & FBV Longboard used from Evilbay. The Pod seems to work fine, but there’s an issue with the FBV. The patch display and volume pedal work, as does the wah pedal on patches that use it, but nothing else seems to work. I can’t change anything on the Pod using it. I’ve tried another network cable that I know to be good which makes no difference.
So, any ideas, or is the FBV shagged?
Problem solved. I opened up the FBV and the footswitches are on three pcb's, daisy chained together using ribbon cables. The last cable which plugs them all into the main circuit board under the pedals had come unplugged in the post. Plugged it back in and it all works again.
BTW, if anyone else decides to open up their FBV longboard, don't unscrew the two screws in the middle. They just hold a brace in place, they don't hold the back on at all.
