Default Midi I/O Constantly Flashing after a firmware update?!?! HELP!

Hi,

I updated our studio Mac today (running OSX 10.4.11) and Protools 6.9, I know it's old but it is effective. Unfortunately our MIDI I/O stopped communicating with the computer in both Logic and Protools.

After numerous efforts trashing preferences and reinstalling drivers, I decided to run the 'MIDI IO FIRMWARE UPDATER'. This successfully updated, or so I thought, but when I went to power cycle the unit, it simply powers up and continues to alternately flash the LED's as if it's stuck in the final stage of the Firmware update.

Any help on how to resolve this issue as i've tried numerous efforts but to no avail?!?

Thanks in advance

Yeah I tried the Panic/Reset button but it does nothing. It seems to be stuck in the firmware update mode and won't respond to anything I do.

Thanks everyone for your tips on this!

Fortunately I sussed out what was wrong (by accident admittedly). Our Midi I/O's are powered purely by USB, so i thought I'd connect up a power supply briefly, and immediately the unit reset itself and was in working order once more. Such a simple problem, but one that stumped me for far too long. Hope this thread helps anyone else in the future.

Thanks again to those that replied!
