I´ve been trying to turn on my m5 during the last 2 hours but it keeps displaying the message "flash update mode waiting command..." It does not work. I did a factory reset yesterday but nothing. What can I do? Please help!

Seems like your firmware may have been corrupted somehow .I would do what it is asking - reinstall the firmware. A quick search of the knowledge base here should get you detailed procedures if you are not familiar with this.

i think you use monkey and a midi interface to update the m5, (the procedure is alot more detailed for the m13)

I have the same problem and keep encountering an unexpected midi problem when trying to do this.  I have already purchased a midi lead and do not want to spend £100 on a midi interface which other posts seem to suggest will work

Firstly if your MIDI lead is a no-name cheapo rubbish then that is almost certainly your problem. The recommended MIDISport Uno can be had for £22, so not sure where you're getting £100 figure from. You need to try this to eliminate your current lead as the problem - unles your current one is a very good make of course.

Forgot to post my solution. I did the software update but kept having the problem. I read somwhere else about removing the black paint from the 4 bolts that hold the case together. I replaced them instead for unpainted bolts and finally the problem was solved. It seems that the black bolts (painted) do some sort of electric interference to the firmware. Line 6 techs should look deeper into this ERROR an fix it for future batches of the M5.

 

Good luck fergie2209
