Sounds to me that your Alt Tuning knob is dirty or even defective. I would try rotating it vigorously several times through its full range. Also check that the knob is not being hampered by the guitar body as you depress it. If so, try removing the knob from the shaft and putting a small piece of paper inside to lift the knob a tad when you reinstall it.
If this doesn't resolve things I would open a support ticket to deal with Line 6 directly on a potential internal hardware problem.
As for the light being temporary - that is normal behaviour.

i took the guitar to where i purchased it ( Long & Mcquade Edmonton ) and they sent it off to be repaired, looks like the alt tuning knob is defective. Should have it back in a couple of weeks. Can't wait, being apart from that guitar just verifies how much i love it !!!!!
Also off topic i am strongly considering getting a JTV 89 ,,, just for the hell of it !!!!
Thanks for the replies ,,,, Viva la Variax !!!!

Silverhead is right on the money (as usual) but while it sounds redundat you may want to try and reflash the guitar to see if that solves the issue.

I have a similar problem. I purchased my 59 back in Nov 2012 (it was produced in April 2011 based on serial number) and after about a month the guitar started changing models on it's own. At first it was when I was trying to work on some patches but then it started happening even when I was just playing the guitar via a guitar cable alone. I purchased from Long & McQuade Vancouver and it's been back in their shop for almost 3 months now. If I don't get it back from Long & McQuade by early April, I'm going to have to demand a refund or a new guitar.... 3 months for a repair is BS.
