Venue Mk II FS 14 Problems (Flashing Lights)

Hello Blackstar Gurus,
I have a HT Venue MK II 60W combo amp, which works great. I recently added the FS 14 footswitch to extend the amps abilities while playing. I am having a problem with the footswitch and I am trying to determine if I am doing something wrong, or if there is something wrong with my equipment.

When I plug the FS 14 into the back of the amp and step on any one of the buttons the green light for the clean channel, amber light for overdrive 1, and red light for overdrive 2 all start flashing simultaneously and no sound will come out of the amp until I reboot the amp. I have the footswitch plugged into the receiver for the 5 button footswitch and the 2 button footswitch is not connected. Also, it works fine when I have the 2 button footswitch plugged in.

I read through the manual and I could find anything that would address this.

Thanks for the help
