Factory reset not working

Recommended Posts

I have a classic Spider IV 15

It seems my amp is now stuck with tones I don't want and I can't get back to a clean tone.

I've powered on while pressing the clean button and holding it for several seconds.  Does not reset.

 

I have done a reset in the past just fine.

 

Also, the TAP button is blinking on power up.  That's new.  Nothing in any forum or manual about this.

 

With the clean preset selected, there is huge echo and some reverb and I have been unable to retrieve a clean tone.

Nor do I  know the meaning of the blinking TAP.

I've gone through pressing TAP to use the tuner - that works fine.  But can't get out of the FX and back to something clean...

 

any advice?

 

thx

Clean tone with a slight Chorus effect is the default, turn the effects up slightly,

then down all the way. Should be something in the manual about that.

"my amp is now stuck with tones I don't want " - meaning you cannot save new patches?   I'm pretty sure the 'tap' light flashes on in time to whatever FX are in the preset tone patch.  If it didn't flash before, it was because the speed had been dialed down to '0' in the FX, factory reset would have changed it back to the default speed.

correct.  I can't save.  When I turn the amp on,  the clean light comes on, the TAP light flashes, and the tone is not either the factory tone nor what I've recently saved.

I can fiddle with the FX knobs etc and get back to something reasonable but saving it does not survive powering off and back on
