Which LED is flashing? Is it the tap tempo LED?
The tap tempo LED , by default, is above the footswitch labeled "TEMPO" on the MK 1.
It is above the footswitch labeled "F3" on the MK 2.
The tap tempo function can be moved to another footswitch as well, and I believe that switch's LED will flash in that case.

Resetting the system parameters​

When things do not sound like they should or do not work as expected, and you can't find a cause, execute the Reset menu command in the Utility menu.

Reset resets all Setup parameters in the Global, I/O (including MIDI) and Tuner menus to the factory default values. This also includes the FC controller configuration.

Resetting the system parameters does NOT change or delete presets, nor user cabs, nor Global Blocks data.

WARNING: before resetting, write down each non-factory setting which is required to operate your rig. And export your FC configuration from the the editor.

"Doing a system reset and having that "fix" things does not surprise me at all. There are a variety of parameters that affect the overall sound that could be set incorrectly either by accident or by a bug in previous firmware. A system reset gives you a clean slate and ensures that the unit sounds as intended. The only drawback is that any changes you've made to I/O and MIDI control assignments will be lost." source

Just reset system parameters...I wouldn't mess with the system flash or you will end up having to send the unit for support to correct any errors on that.

Follow these instructions to "clean" the hardware and restore its initial state.

  1. Perform a reset: Utility > Reset. This will restore all parameters in Global, I/O and Tuner to factory defaults. This does not impact presets.
  2. Use the Utility menu to clear all presets. Then load the factory presets again.
