AMPLIFI suddenly in Recovery Mode

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

 

I was setting my AMPLIFI 150 up as an amplifier for my new Firehawk FX board. I had both the AMPLIFI and the Firehawk FX paired to my phone and I was switching between the Firehawk app and the AMPLIFI app to set stuff up.

 

I had set up a sound with no effects, no amp and no cam and it was working fine. Then I was steaming a song (to the AMPLIFI) to match a tone to that song, but suddenly I didn't get any guitar tone out of the AMPLIFI (but still the steaming music).

 

I decided to cold boot the AMPLIFI, so I turned it off and then back on. After that the AMPLIFI was in Recovery Mode with the 4 flashing LEDs. I was not updating anything on the AMPLIFI at this point, only steaming music.

 

Any idea what might have happend?

 

 

Regards, 

 

Sune

Having the exact same problem.. tried updating/resetting it about at least 10 different times, with both an ipad and laptop. Everytime I do it either doesn't work, or stays stable for a few minutes up to an hour and then reverts back into recovery mode. If you happen to find a solution I'm all ears :)

Do you mean that you are connected in the same time with one unique device (your phone) to your FH and your Amplifi ?

 

I am not sure the BT protocol is  supposed to support that.

 

Have you tried to pilot your FH with one phone and your amplifi with another one ?

Another idea would be to create a neutral tone and store it on your amplifi and to connect with your phone only to the FH.

Well, I fixed my problem by starting the amp in recovery mode (probably not needed but did it anyway) by holding tap and tone while turning the app on, then I pressed the bluetooth button and paired with my phone (i had previously removed the old pairing). Then I went to the AMPLIFI Remote and updated the firmware.

 

That was it, it works again.

Yes, they were both connected. It worked fine up until the point where the amp went into Recovery Mode.

 

That was exactly what I was setting up on the AMPLIFI, a cabless, ampless setup to run the Firehawk through.

THE Sokution is to hold the tone knob and the volume knob down and power on... Not the tone and tap button.. its all wrong everywhere. Then u may recover it through the software
