Guest posted a article in HELIX/HXWe're sure you'll have a great experience with your Helix. As with anything, be sure to regularly back up your presets, and in the event anything unexpected happens while using your Helix, please perform one or more of the steps below while powering on your unit. If your Helix ends up in a bad state due to a failed firmware update try rebooting the Helix/Helix Rack while entering update mode by holding down footswitches 6+12 (Helix/LT) or encoders 1+6 (Rack). You should see "Entered Update Mode" on the screen, once this is done properly. Then you can re-connect to Line 6 Updater. You may need to manually resume the update using Line 6 Updater (NOT HX Edit). Make sure all other recording software is closed on your system. Make sure to try this out on different USB ports, or multiple computers in case of poor USB connections, or if the the Helix doesn't connect at all with update mode, or its regular boot-up.

The Line 6 FBV 3 has an update mode. You can use this if your firmware update fails for any reason. Press and hold down Footswitch 1 and the A footswitch and then plug in the USB cable to power on. You'll see the LCD screen say Update Mode. The Line 6 Updater will still see the FBV to allow you to run the update process again.
Well I was trying to launch line 6 monkey the other day and after having the POD XT Pro work flawlessly over the time since I bought several years ago, for some reason the USB decided not to be recognized. I have followed every thing you are supposed to do,(i.e, unplugged it, different usb port, NOT in a USB HUB). I am able to connect the unit via MIDI but not USB. I tried to do a WINDOWS 7 System restore but I cannot undo what ever happened. When I look in Device manager I see a flag next to a UNKNOWN DEVICE When I click properties of that file I see with in the item description window , Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43) I have tried updating the usb drivers and every time I cannot When Monkey starts it scans for USB & MIDI it sees my VARIAZ USB that is connected but not on. ( JTV ) I see the PODXT PRO midi turned on and connected but where once was a USB connected device is not. I have tried everything I know how to do and I am sad to think that this unit perhaps has seen better days. PLEASE HELP!!
