I have an EC5 Pedal that I want to use it with my Pa4X.
I press A B C D E buttons with the same pressure and they're responding fine, no delay except the E button assigned to Start/Stop for styles.
The E button not working correctly and sometimes it's not responding at all.

So I was wondering if there is any fix or idea to repair it.
Thanks for any suggestion

Just wondering did you try to change button E two button a and have it start and stop on button a.

You could always change the buttons back to e if it's the same is e5 switch or something else..

Or I should say just make button A the start and stop button see how that works..


Let us know what you find out

I had same problem - opened up the EC5 and sprayed with an "electronics/circuit board" cleaner - works fine now.

@duby2,
Thanks for the suggestion, Actually I need all of the buttons (A B C D E) and I need to fix the E one.
Thanks anyway

@Pete,
I just ordered a Electronic Cleaner spray.
Hopefully that'll fix it.

Thanks a lot.

I cleaned my EC5 pedal with QD Electronic Cleaner but still the button E not working. Other buttons (A B C D) working fine.

Is there other way to fix it or replacing any part of the button E.
If somebody has any suggestion/info to what part should I replace (part number) and if it's easy to do it by myself, would be very helpful.

Thanks

Did you completely open it up when you applied the cleaner?

I have no idea about "parts" but think it might be cheaper or more economical to buy another one (this is what I did but luckily managed to get my original one working again)

Yes, I opened it by removing all screws outside and inside to apply QD Electronic Cleaner on all parts from A to E.
I'll give another try and will see.

Thanks Pete.

If you tried spraying then the only thing is to replace the switches because they have a certain life cycle then they don't function.

Thanks for the reply.
Do you know the reference for the switches for ordering?

Thanks for the info.
If i buy the switches, do you think I can replace it myself or is it difficult?

If you ever soldered it's easy, if not, then give it to someone to do.
