    Hey...


    I got my pod for more than year, I got it month after release, and now it has survived some gigs with me and my friends accoustic project and some of the footswitches sometimes does not work like they did in the beggining and looper switch doesn't have click when pushed.

    So is there anything I can do? Maybe open and look inside and tighten up something, clean or do I need to order other footswitches?

    I had to open my hd one time because expressen pedal was falling down and I found out that two of 4 expression pedal screws where wondering around inside of my hd :D

    If you don't care about voiding your warranty:

    So if I don't want to void warranty then what I can do? I have to wait till they broke down?

    If had it for a year your warranty is already void.


    I'd probably start by spraying Deoxit in the jacks. Then take it to a tech if that doesn't help.

    When I bought mine, I figure one day I'll have to go that footswitch replacement route...either myself or a tech to d it.

    I think I have more than 1 year warranty maybe 2 or 3 years. I bought mine from dv247, but I'll try that spraying method. Thanks for answers...

    If it's under warranty, why not have Line6 fix it? Good luck.
