Foot time

(Neil Mathieson) #1

Hi Guys

I’ve been using my foot time foot switch for around six years, but this morning it has stopped working, for no apparent reason.

I’ve noticed that when it’s plugged into the USB both foot switches are pulsing with a very feint blueish light. when they are pressed they glow bright red as before, but nothing happens.

Any thoughts?? I presume it doesn’t need batteries or anything? Or (hope not) is it time to get a new one?

Hi Neil

The lights should not be “pulsing”. This would indicate that there is something wrong! Have you tried the pedal in another PC?

If it does not work on any PC then the most likely fault with the pedal is a broken wire. You could try replacing the black cable with one from, for example, an old mouse.

Failing that it may just have died of old age :frowning:

If you want to return it to us we will have a look at it and let you know.

Thanks I’ll try it in another PC and let you know.

Found the problem - loose connection at the USB plug end. If I wiggle it about it eventually connects!!

I’ll live with it for now, now I know a wiggle sorts it!!
