wah pedal and line 6 flextone problems

ok, i just got a line 6 flextone series 60 watt combo, and i also own a morely bad horsie 2 wah, i used teh wah in front of my amp, and in teh fx loop of my amp, but i still got a problem. The problem is that when i press down on the wah, the distortion of my amp sort of mutes and i didnt ever have this problem with my old ibanez 12 watt combo and it would keep the same distortion but make teh wah fluid and stuff. i own a distortion pedal, a boss mega distortion, and i was thinking maybe if used that pedal in my effects loop and set teh line 6 on clean, i could use teh pedals crunch and maybe teh wah wouldnt mute it, but i havent tried it yet for lack of a battery. so if anyone knwos what im talking about just gimme some advice

sounds like you have a weak batter in the wah.. I've never had that problem. At 1st i came in to the post because I thought you were using the line6 board and there's been issues with the switch goign bad but they mail the part to you for free.

this is exactly what the tech at line 6 said. Lift the wah and look righ tunder neath it you can see the switch. Something happens when you switch the wah on and off that it will switch the patch mode. I've only ever seen it once on a local guys setup and line 6 sent him the parts and I ended up buying his floorboard off him when he bought a MArk Tremoni wah *cringes*

I don't mean a switch like on a crybaby, it's something inside the board. He pointed and told me to the thing you see when you look in the little slot is what they sent him it's small. They evidently go bad a good bit from what the line 6 guy said.
I did like the sound of Marks wah, however I hate creed so cringe at the signature wah. It's the only morley wah I like the sound of though it's not all extra bright like the others.
