Default Snare Rim Click on roland V-Drums (TD10)

I have the Roland TD10 with the expansion card and the snare drum is a PD-120. The problem I am having is that I can't seem to figure out how to get the snare to produce a rim click, (holding the stick to the surface of the head while hitting the rim with the taper of the stick to produce a wood block sort of sound). The triggers are correctly configured and I can dial up a factory set and have the rim click sound produced just fine but when I try it with another defined kit it does not produce the click but rather whatever instrument is assigned to the rim itself, (usually the corresponding rim sound for the snare drum). I examined the setup for the snare on the kit where the click works and can't seem to see anything special about it. Additionally, when I assign the exact same snare and rim sounds or instrument numbers that are used on the working kit's snare to the kit I want it to work on it still does not produce the click sound. The manual offers no help.

Does anyone know what the problem may be?

Had the same problem and the solution for me was to LIGHTLY hit only the rim near the mounting bracket (or the mounting bracket itself. In other words, do not bother trying to hit the head or rest the stick on the head like a normal click, just strike the rim LIGHTLY.
Enjoy the Music,

Make sure the snare you have selected has "XS" with it. It stands for cross stick, and unless you have an option to use it with that snare, you"ll never get the sound you want. I hope this helps.

I've noticed that the stick must be on the rim at both ends to get the XS sound. If you want to look traditional you may want to try that or just lightley hit the rim like it was suggested by another.

amynw is correct, you can't have the stick o the head, rest on side on the rim.

go to setup > triggers > bank > if you're on trigger bank 1, trigger #2 (snare) needs to be set to 12A, not 12B. That fixed it for me.
