FCB1010 Expression pedal mod?

One of the expression pedals has quit working and the opto circuit is bad for that pedal is there a way to convert the wiring to connect a seperate expression pedal to the unit to take the place of the broken one?

Not easily, no.  Normal expression pedals use a potentiometer - a variable resistor, usually 50k ohms.  The FCB1010 optical arrangement sends a voltage level based on the light hitting it.  While you certainly could investigate the correct voltage range rig up something to make a regular expression pedal work, it wouldn't be simple.  Have you asked Behringer what it would cost to replace the parts?  Or fix it for you?
