The registration has no bearing on updating the flash memory in Monkey. Hitting remind me later skips any registration bumps. IF the Bass is not being recognized by Line 6 Monkey, that's a different story. Which interface are you using?
Please be sure to remove any batteries if you are powering with the power supply.
If you are unable to sort it by re-installing the flash memory, it will need to go to an authorized service center:

I am connecting to the Variax through a Floor Pod XT. If I select the POD from the connect area I get the full tree of firmware etc, however if I select the Bass, I only see the Monkey software version.
The advice about the batteries is news though, why does that make a difference?
I'll take them out and try again.

I'm still trying to reflash my variax, but although the Monkey appears to connect OK I cannot see the firmware version table. Here is a snapshot of the Monkey after choosing the bass from the connection option.
So it looks like although the monkey has connected to the bass, it is unable to read the Eprom and get the electronic serial number. I guess that is a clue?

Just to clarify, none of the Variax guitar/basses have ESN numbers; that is not a clue (just making sure you're aware of this).
However, if you're not seeing the Flash Memory component in Monkey's "Update" screen, this tells us you have a connection problem to the bass. Unfortunately it's sounding like a hardware issue that a repair tech will need to investigate at this point...

Thanks for the clarification, I was not aware of the guitars not having ESN's. I'll try a CAT 5 cable for final clarification, then try and contact L6 in the UK.
This is pretty odd though as the Floor pod can select models and the audio comes through OK, so there can't be too much wrong with the connections.

If you are still having trouble with the Bass being recognized, then I would suggest that you have a Service Tech assess the bass for you. To locate a Line 6 Service Center in your area, follow the link below:
