Hey everyone,

I've had my jca22h for a year now and recently I've been having some problems with the footswitch, as it would change channel if I just touch it/move it around. It may simply just happen if I touch the wire. It sounds to me like a contact problem between some components but I'm no expert and haven't tried to open it yet. Any thoughts?

Sounds like either a broken wire, loose connection, or a sloppy solder joint that is grounding when it shouldn't.

Just open it all up and take a look.

A quick google search showed someone with the same problem and the cause was the bad soldering job in the end of the cable.

I'll open it up and take a look. Eventually post some pics, but even though it might be a minor problem that would be easily fixed shouldn't I be asking Thomann (from whom I bought) to replace the footswitch (it's still on warranty)?

Well yes. Why didn't you just contact them in the first place then?

Pi...lol

I'd say take it back if it's under warranty, but should be a pretty easy fix if you're decent at soldering. Most likely a loose connection, broken wire or bad solder joint. Given how many I've seen with recent electronics, I'd say bad solder joint.
Hmmm...I wonder what this button does...
