JTV 89f causing line 6 reboot screen to appear when initially switching tones

Recommended Posts

So I'm wondering if this is normal. I have a JTV 89f, Pod HD500x, into a DT 25 head. My problem happens power everything up. If I have the JTV plugged in using the Variax cable when I power up then try and change tones on the Pod Via footswitch the Pod freezes up and goes to the line 6 reboot screen. Once it reboots the tones switch correctly but I'm not sure if everything sounds quite right but that could be my ears just assuming something's off because of the reboot. Now if I turn everything on without plugging in the JTV first everything works great. It's not that big of a deal other than having to unplug my guitar when I'm done. I'm just hoping that it's not a symptom of another problem. For a long time I thought that something was wrong with the Pod until I got into a kick of  playing my Les Paul instead of my JTV for awhile  and noticed the issue was gone. Anyway I was just wondering if anyone has had the same issue or if this is just the order it's supposed to power up my rig. I know that your supposed to power things up in a certain order according to some of the other forums but is plugging in your JTV part of that order? Thanks in advance.

Update to the latest firmware(v2.1) on my JTV-69s stopped this from happening for me. I thought it was my POD 500x and had it in for service for almost 5 months to then get it back and firmware v2.1 came out soon after it work properly now. If you are not at v2.1 give it a try.

Thanks Jakeman but I've already updated to V2.1. I've also rolled back to previous versions and tried to update via Pod HD and usb dongle. I assume though that this means this is not normal. Thanks again.

VDI cable is good. However after the fourth uninstall reinstall of all firmware to al the pieces of my rig it's finally working right. Thanks for the advice!! In a couple of weeks I'm getting an L3T we'll see how that goes next. :)
