Pod X3 displays message: "UPDATE FLASH" ... and won't turn off.

Recommended Posts

My Pod X3 has been unused for several months, and when I turned it on today, the message: "UPDATE FLASH" came onto the unit, and that is when I updated both my Line 6 Monkey Software, drivers, flash for the software... and eventually updated the flash on the unit. 

 

I went through the process several times, and continue to get the same message: 

 

"UPDATE FLASH"

 

Please Help!

Was there an interruption during an update?

 

Try re-Flashing it. If that doesn't work, log a ticket in the

ticketing system to get a return authorization to get it serviced.

An additional 'behavior' of the flash process....


 


During the flash process the computer has these pop up windows confirming the flash was successful, and the software is prompting me to turn the unit off, even though the unit displays:  "UPDATING FLASH..." 


 


AND 


 


I turned the unit off, and back on again, only to be given the initial: "UPDATE FLASH" (I'm back where I started) 


 


AND


 


I've had this unit for several years, and don't know if there is any issue with warranty expiration?  


 


AND


 


Is it possible this unit just needs a battery replaced? It must use one if it is going to 'remember' settings. Considering its off warranty, I might be able to swap out a memory battery?

Ehhhhh all things are pointing to a trip to a service center. Flash memory can remember a bunch of things as long as its working right.

There is no memory battery in the unit.

Authorized service center. They can fix the freeze-up issue

and check for any updates to be done to hardware and firmware.
