PODxt Live Blank Screen! Please Help ASAP!
by ChrisBailey2011 on 2010-12-11 07:28:48.8510

Ok so I have been looking around the forums for fixes to this problem with no avail...

My problem is as follows:

When I switch on my PODxt Live the screen is blank, and the Amp, Stomp, Mod lights light up... THATS IT! Nothing else happens.

What I have tried...

Holding Save + Edit then pressing Output = After 3 seconds of pressing it, goes blank....

Booting up in safe mode, USB will not recognise it at all. Safe mode or not... (Not Using a USB Hub, just straight in the port)

SRAM Test has passed with no problem... then restart and back to a blank screen...

I really want to try and Flash the memory but when I try and connect it does not even notice its there. I have tried to install the drivers, but at the end it says something like "Now connect your device via USB to complete" So I do, and I says complete... Start up Monkey and it says its still not installed... I cant afford it to be repaired and nothing has happened to this like dropped ect, so please ANYONE give me another way of trying to fix it please!

My serial is


(If that changes anything)

Thanks in advance...

you will likely need repair from the sounds of it... BUT... you need to boot the XT in safe mode... not the computer...

Q: How do I reflash in "safe mode"?

A: Safe mode can be used when a unit cannot be reflashed using the normal  reflash procedure.  Hold the first black soft key from the left (under  the LCD readout) while powering the PODxt to start your unit in safe  mode.

if you were able to test the SRAM you must have gotten into safe mode...

anyway once you are in safe mode on the xt... leave it alone.. go to your pc and run monkey, and tell it to reinstall the latest.

you can also try another machine, if possible...
