Please, can someone help me!

 

I was trying to use my POD HD 500 with the Editor, but when i connected the USB canle, a message appeared saying that was not possible to transmit the patches. After this, my POD HD 500 do not inicialize anymore, the screen shows only a flashing Line 6 logo.

The hardware is not recognized by the softwares, i've already tried with the monkey and with the editor.

Please, if someone knows the answer, tell me!

Before line6 was called line6... they used to do r&d for other companies like alesis + others. and when those customers came to visit the offices of line6 (before it was called line6) and the receptionist needed to warn all the guys who were designing products for other companies (and for themselves... ) who were like 'in the back' the receptionist would announce over a tannoy 'tellephone call for 'fred smith' on line 6' the cunning part was that they only had 5 telephone lines, so it was the secret code for "hide your sh1t the feds are comin'" or "someone's coming, let's hide these PODs that we aren't going to release for another few years so they don't see them"

Same thing happened to me two days ago.   Mine is only 4 weeks old (tomorrow).   After the reset I could not get it to sync with the pc.   I replaced the USB cable.....then it worked.

 

So, I am wondering.........does Line6 have a problem with the 500X or do they have a USB cable problem?  

 

This seems to be a common problem with the 500X.

Glad it worked for you, and a new cable is always a good thing to try...

i usually see this issue when a rogue tone is installed and accessed....

i suspect that the issue might be the 500 tones that ship with the 500x.

not because of a huge internal difference... simply because the presets

were created on early firmwares and I'm not aware of any updated presets.

the firmware differences can and has been an issue for some hd500 tones.

anyway... just my theory... as the "hold left+power up" trick essentially resets the global settings

and bypasses any disagreeable information that the last used tone may have presented.
