If you tested a brand new FBV4 with your amp and it would not light up or switch channels, than the problem could be with the FBV jack on the amp itself.
One thing is to try another ethernet cable to connect the two to rule out the possibility of it being a faulty cable. If switching cables doesn't bring the FBV4 to life, I would suggest that you have a local Line 6 service center assess the FBV port on your amp. To locate one in your area, follow the link below:

i have contacted the only line6 rep around me and 1 they wont return emails and 2 they wont return phonecalls just as bad as the service techs at line6 im over there junk i will never buy anything related to line6 ever again ive been trying to get this problem fixed for allmost a year now with no help from line6, i have figured out the problem there is a small transitor behind the pedal plug that is blown apart but nothing has ever been hooked up to it? so this was a factory issue not misuse and you cant buy parts to fix them anywhere? i tryed the used pedal on another line6 amp and it worked fine,so i will move on to another brand that backs there product and i will do my best to make sure anyone i know doesnt buy line6 ever again either but thanks for your reply

Sorry you have had a bad experience with the amp, but no manufacturers of electronic products warrant their products for 5 years these days. The transisitor would not have been 'blown apart' at the factory, so this may have happened at the place you bought the amp.
Note that the Line 6 Service Centers are independent companies, they are not LINE 6, just places authorized to work on Line 6 equipment.
Not sure how you can expect Line 6 service techs to be able to help you further if you don't send them the equipment for evaluation.
