I bought an Ibanez Paul Gilbert Airplane Flanger a while back, and lately it's been pretty screwy. If I try to turn it on, sometimes the volume will cut way back, and then even if I turn it off, the volume will remain almost inaudibly quiet. If I stomp on the pedal hard a few times (the actual pedal, not the switches) the volume will come back though.

I can't seem to find a number to contact Ibanez to fix it, but I would have no clue how to do it myself. I'm guessing it's some loose wiring or something. Does anybody have any ideas on how I could fix this issue? Much appreciated if you do.

Are you using a power supply?
Are you using a battery?

If you are using a battery, is it a fresh one?

Firstly try using a new battery.

Does pulling on the cables near the jacks cause any cut-outs?

Ah, I should have mentioned that, sorry. I'm using a power supply to power the pedal, and I've tried fiddling with the cables and using different cables as well, with no success. If I cut the pedal out of the loop entirely, I have no problems and all of the other pedals work perfectly. So I think the issue is inside the Flanger.

the af2 draws 39mA, what other pedals are you using of the same power supply as it`s most likely that if you are running any other pedals off the same supply that there isn`t enough to power the af2.

edit:-what country are you in i`ll find you the contact info for ibanez.....if in the usa i need to know the state.

I can't remember if the adapter came with it or if I bought one separately, but I know the adapter I have goes with this Flanger specifically. It's only powering the AF2, and it worked perfectly for the first few months I had the pedal.

Wow, could you? That would be excellent. I'm in Pennsylvania. Much appreciated.
