It sounds like there could be a problem with the Flextone hardware, but I recommend that you perform a reset on the amp by holding the 'A' and 'D' buttons on the amp as you power it on.
You can also try re-installing the flash memory using the Line 6 Monkey software and a MIDI connection to the amp.
If the problem persists, you will need to take it to an authorized service center to take a look:

and with no disrespect intended Mr L6Hugo... but please do not suggest Flex users make use of L6 Monkey for firmware updates!
It DOES NOT support the Flex series - no matter what you have been told by your engineering team - and fails more often than not.
That is pretty evident if you read these forums regularly !!
Please, please, please.... and I've been saying this to everyone...
DO NOT USE MONKEY with the FLEX SERIES amps... it is going to cause you NOTHING BUT TROUBLE
You will save yourself a lot of grief by staying away from it.
Use L6 Edit or Tweakwiz for patch editing and go here for the firmware updater.

I feel your pain. I have experienced the exact same symptoms in my Flextone III XL with the FBV Shortboard, It was very frustrating not being able to access all my presets(only through L6 Edit).
I have since moved to a Behringer FCB1010 MIDI foot controller, and now it works great. I only lost the tuner function and the alphanumeric display with this change. However, I can get full MIDI control of any setting in the Flex. It takes a while to program, but it is well worth the time. And, thanks to s0c9 for the tip on L6 monkey!
