So I bought a Zoom G3X earlier this year 2nd hand. It was all working good until this month(been a good 2-3 months in my possession). When I have any kind of Wah in the chain the effect turns on and off on its own, regardless of its position in the chain or if it's one of the 3 effects displayed on the LCD. That rules out the 3 switches being faulty. It could be the switch under the expression pedal is faulty but there was one incident where even the distortion pedal started acting the same way when I removed the wah in the chain.

Anyone encountered this problem before? Any fix?

Thanks TDPRI.

It is probably the toe switch under the expression which is where the wah gets assigned. Is it possible that the OD was assigned to the expression toe switch when it acted up? I'd take it apart and try to clean that switch. Aside from that replacement of the switch may be needed.
