Switch going bad in my X3 Live?
on 2012-03-05 13:41:53.3410
My X3L is just over 2 years old. Recently, I've noticed that the Tap/Tuner switch is behaving erratically. It doesn't always work when I press & hold for the tuner, and tapping in a tempo for my delay is problematic. The problem occurs most often when my heel is resting on the floor. If I pick up my entire foot and press the switch more on the switch's far edge (that's the edge farthest from me), it works better.
Is my switch going bad? I use that switch more than any other, so could I have worn it out? Or is there a way to improve the function without replacing the switch?
I live a few hours from the nearest authorized repair center. Can I buy a switch from Line 6 and install it myself?
Another question...Are all of the foot switches the same part? If so, I could possibly swap parts and put this one in a spot I don't use very often.

The serial number is 21X3L1s5933009010. So it appears to have been made after the switch design changed, and is not covered under warranty.

I'm having the same issue as @samcham. Tried calling in but hold time took over 30 minutes and I had to run. Is there any resolution known for this @Line6david? Should I try calling back later? My Serial # is 21X3L1S6005000208.
