First thing to check would be the CAT5 cable, only way to know is to try another one.  Check the pins on the jacks/plugs to make sure none are bent out of place.

Same problem here.... Just set up my Amplfi 150 and shortboard mk2, updated, calibrated the shortboard, and when turned on, the shortboard reads "FVB SB MRII". When I disconnect from the 150 and then plug into my computer USB, it powers up and pedal , buttons work as they should. bummed....

So ive had this issue twice with my board. Im not entirely sure which process i used that worked, but im almost certain it was changing the cat 5 cable. 

 

I run a line 6 spider jam 75w 1x12 amp. Here is what i did:

 

-I reset my amp to factory default. Reason being is the error came about when i tried to switch the distortion type on the amp while the mkii was plugged in. 

-next i reset my mkii pedal. 

 

Neither of these initially worked.

 

I got a cat5 cable i had laying around, didnt work. I unplugged everything and went to storage to get a cat 5 cable and my printer usb cables so i can load the monkey software. When i came home before i connected the software i plugged everything back in with the new cat5 cable. Fixed. 

 

The first time this happened i had to put the settings back to where they were before the error occured. So if the amp was on the "green metal" preset model before i moved it, thats where i had to put it to get it to work normal again. It may have just been me shifting causing the cat 5 to work right. This happened like 3 years ago.

 

 

My guess is i could have just got the new cat5 and been done with it. Good luck to you.

Have you tried "see" your pedal will the Line 6 FBV Control app? It allows you to load .fbv files to the pedal so it will control other Line 6 products. when I plug the Mk2 into my Amplifi 150, all the controller panel says is "fbv sb mk2" . If I run FBV Controller app, I can load device profile files (.fbv type) into the pedal. My problem is a corrupted  or missing file for the 150 amp. See example attachment. If you could run Line 6 Monkey, get the FBV Control app. and post a screenshot of the settings screen, I might be able to work further on this. Thanx
