So far, the only option seems to be to send it back to DOD and see if they will be willing to fix it. They quoted me about $40 just to LOOK at it, I think I recall. As this is what originally paid for the effect, I am not looking forward to paying that again just for someone to tell me if they can fix it or not.

ok look at the plastic are there any tiny holes in it ?
1) it can be replaced with any vaguely similar robust material
2)there is no conductive grease
3) check all other physical connections and wires with a continuity tester
remove the circuit boards and look for worn traces and loose solder joints
(my fx-17 cost me £10 and e new battery connecter)

I took this photograph the other day and when tweaking my trim pots. I noticed that I didn't have a plastic sheet over the circuit board.
Mine works splendidly too.

I know this thread is old, but for future reference- it needed a new IC and capacitors.
Interesting. I have the FX-17 as well, so if this ever happens I'll go there first.
