    Hello. I tracked down a V-Amp 3 a few years ago after seeing it in a video or talked about on a podcast. I love it. Hands down it's better than the Line 6 POD, Zoom 3000 and other vintage processors that I have or played through.  

    Anyway, I am losing my custom edits. In fact, when I power it on, it doesn't even have the factory presets. I have to restore it to default factory settings when I turn it on. I can edit the patches and save it to a bank while the unit is on. However when I turn it off, every edited setting is gone when I turn it back on. 

    I've left the unit on for a few hours to see if there was some kind of internal battery that needed to be charged but that did not resolve the problem. Is there an internal battery that needs to be replaced ? I haven't been able to find any information regarding this problem.

      William Reichling Hello Tom, There should be an internal battery on the motherboard of your device. This battery is used to store and save the internal presets. Replacement of this battery should resolve this issue.

      Tom Henrich THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!! I’ll pick up the battery tomorrow and have my wife put it in just like the video. ???? I love that V-Amp 3. It’s incredible with not just the amount of great tones, but it’s ability to do adjust and configure to any situation.

      Would you know if there is a firmware update for it by any chance ? And if so, are they any pros and cons to it ?

    Does anyone have any experience or idiot-proof instructions on how to pair the FCB1010 pedalboard to control the FX2000 effects processor? The pedalboard seems to be communicating to the FX2000, but I can't seem to program pedals 1-10 to switch between presets (U001 to U100). Any help sould be great. Thanks!!

      StephenEvans I'd do a factory reset on the FCB1010 (https://musictribecommunity.powerappsportals.com/en-us/knowledgebase/article/6526#:~:text=Press%20and%20hold%20footswitches%20%221,complete%20when%200%20is%20reached.), which should mean it sends program changes 1 to 10 on footswitches 1 to 10. Then I would check the midi channel that the FX200 is listening on (see manual page 16 item 3.6.1), and check it is set to midi channel 1 (or whatever the FCB1010 is set to).

      Christopher Jones I have both manuals. The FCB1010 manual doesn't have a page 16 and the FX2000 manual has page 16 as the listing of presets. How do I see what midi channel my FX2000 is on. I followed the start up instructions to the FCB and everything seemed to be working, but with 100 factory presets and 100 user presets how do I identify the presets to my FCB1010 pedalboard. I just want to use my FCB1010 like a bunch of stomp boxes with the ability to call up effects from my FX2000 while playing live or recording. There is no computer involved. Please explain it to me like I am a total child. Lol. Thanks!!

      StephenEvans Ok so the FCB is working to control the factory presets ok? To change from controlling the factory presets to user it seems you need to do this using midi as well. I would choose a button in a bank on the FCB that you are unlikely to use (like bank 9 button 1 or something). Press this and then hold the down button down until it goes into preset edit mode. Press the UP button until the select light is on. You can now turn on or off functions by holding down one of the 1-10 buttons until the light goes on or off. Turn on 6 and 7 (controller 1 and 2) and turn the others off. Press (not hold) button 6 (the light should flash), and then press up. Press 0, up 0 up. Then press button 7, the light should flash. Press up then 0 then up then 1 then up. Hold down the down button until it is out of programming mode and then try pressing this button. It should alternate whether you are in the user or the factory bank of presets. If that doesn't work, follow the same steps but change the final 1 to 127. Hope this helps!

      William Reichling FUSE HOLDER / VOLTAGE SELECTION. Before connecting the FX2000,
      confirm that the voltage display matches your local mains voltage.
      When replacing the fuse, you must always use the same type. In many
      units the fuse holder can be installed in one of two positions, allowing you
      to switch between 230 V and 120 V. If you wish to operate a unit outside
      Europe at 120 V, then a stronger fuse must be used. US fuse (FUSE;200mA;250V;SLOW BLOW;L-TYPE;5mm x 20mm )

      David Knighton Hello Pattritter. Did you purchase the unit brand new from Netherlands? What is the company name? We hear many folks ordering from Thomann in EU and they end up with a unit that doesn't work on US mains 120V. Often times those users will end up purchasing a different PSU that is rated for US mains 120V, and they ultimately end up with a foreign warranty on their product. It is always recommended to purchase items from within the region you live, as the distributor for each country will generally only sell product that is specified for the region they service.

      Rex Beckett I don't think it is possible, Jon. The EPS500 MP3 does not have any Aux outputs that could be used to drive an external effects unit.

    I have purchased FX 2000 and want to use this unit as 2 mono inputs and outputs. In the manual, the method of setting is not explained. Can I get the method how to go about? Also I am keen to know, is it possible to run different effects on both mono channels simultaneously. I want to use it for vocals, 2 microphones in 2 channels of mixer but having different effects. Is it possible?
