Hi,

 

my HD500X does not start anymore, after I switch on the power. The Line 6 Logo appears, stay for some seconds, the logo switch to the big blue block an then the block faded away,

then the line 6 Logo appears again. This in in a loop.

 

Bofor I had a software-crash. I was in the HD-editor. I had an amp with a delay in front. Then I addes a wah-wah. For a reason (i know this is useless) I try to switch the wah-wah after (behind) the amp. In this moment the programm crashes. I can't remember the exact errormessage, sorry. I tryed to reboot the HD500X but it won't work.

 

How can I reset the HD500x?

 

Sorry for my english, but thanks for you help!

 

Kind regards

 

Christian

I would reinstall the firmware. Connect the HD500x to your computer via usb, and hold down the left nav key on the HD500x while powering up. Then run Line 6 Monkey to reinstall the flash memory (firmware). If you have a recent backup of the HD500x presets then it's best to choose to replace existing presets when prompted during the installation. If no recent backup, then choose to keep your existing presets (and back them up immediately :) ).

 

Also, after reinstalling be sure to reset the global parameters and calibrate the pedal (search the knowledge base for details).

Where is the 'left nav key'? The manual lists a 'nav pad', but no left or right nav key's.

The nav pad uses four arrow-labeled keys (buttons): up/down and left/right. I mean the left key.

Make sure you are using the correct powerbrick for the 500X.  Do not assume (as I initially did) that an X3L brick would power the 500X.  We it kinda did, but sometimes the Line6 logo would just flash repeatedly - as you noted.

 

Also check the your 500x brick is providing 9VDC.
