Force 2 no output issue

I have a Force 2 that outputs in monopolar just fine using the handpiece but will maybe output a couple of watts when using the foot pedals. I have swapped out foot pedals with the same result. What would be causing this issue and what would be the fix?

I have to ask the obvious question, but do you have the foot pedal in the correct connector?  Footswitch 1 for Monopolar 1, or Footswitch 2 for Monopolar 2.

Yes i do. This unit has only 1 connector for monopolar and 1 connector for bipolar.

Possibly the Footswitch Receptacle Assembly has a bad connection. The board appears to be good since the handpiece works fine.

Sorry, basic question first. When you activate the cut footpedal do you actually get the cut activation tone along with the yellow cut activetive light on the front panel? Check the keyboard is not causing the monopolar footswich from activating bipolar.
