    Hey guys !

    I just received a new P.O.G. this afternoon, and have been fiddling around with it for a while now, and realised a strange thing. After about 5-10 minutes of use, the pedals status LED just turns off. Is this normal? The effect still turns on and off properly, just the LED never comes back on. After unplugging for a while and then using it, it works fine for another 5-10 minutes. Why is this?

    Thanks for your time!

    I don't recall this happening with mine, guess I can run a test.

    Yah I don't know what is with it, as the effect does turn on and off normally. It happened to me before and then I played badminton for a couple hours, and when I came back, the LED worked again...but only for 5 or ten minutes or so.:confused:

    Mine stays illuminated. Maybe there is a defective bulb in yours. I can run a test on mine to make sure that happens. But I have used the pedal at a bunch of shows and never had a problem with the LED (I keep it on at all times in a loop with a distortion pedal). Ill post my findings in alittle while.

    Ive had mine running for about 30 minutes and the LED is still going strong...Sounds like it might be a defective bulb or something.

    Yeah, just did the same (excuses to play with the pog? what?). No LED problem at all.

    Hmm well right after writing the review I played for about 20 mins and it was going strong for the first 10 and then died for 3 or 4 mins and then was flickering for a little bit and then was on but just barely illuminated for the rest of the time..bad connection or bulb?
