Re: FS300 Footswitch Errors with EDP

i've had some problems with my fs-300 triggering 
weirdly as well.  i assumed it was a bad connection
at the jack and haven't looked into it further.
i noticed that a bad cable will trigger record on and
off when it is jiggled.  i am going to try cramolin on the jack. 
i will let you know if it makes a difference.

i don't see how it could be the switches.

i am also considering replacing the jack with a 
tip-sleeve jack (instead of trs)

the only other thing i can think of is several on this list 
have mentioned a static problem with their edp footswitches.
it might be necessary to isolate the jack from the case
with an insulating grommet.  my fs-300 is not painted, so 
static may be more of a problem than it is with the original 
edp footswitch...
