Shower temperature mix problem

The water temperature in a heretofore seldom used shower will suddenly change from hot to pure cold on short notice. I've tried replacing the valve cartridge, but to no avail. The other shower which is located on the same floor does not have the same problem.

My thought is that some debris from the pipe has lodged in the cartridge and is affecting the water mixture. Can't think of anything else.

Anybody have any ideas?

That is a high probability. But if you have changed the mixing valve cartridge, the trash should have flushed out. Have you tried removing the cartridge and having someone turn on the water slightly while you watch it? May help.
