Sustainer Question

I know this question does not pertain to Ibanez products but ive seen discussion here before about the Fernandes Sustainer system. I recently purchased a RetroRocket Elite guitar with the sustainer single coil and it work great except that there is a 50 second delay from when you first plug in the instrument cable to when you can actually hear the signal passed through the amp. after that it works as expected.

Ive put in a new battery, and the same. There is a red LED on the back that illuminates as soon as you plug in the cable but no sound until that 50 second mark.

Can someone tell me if this is normal? i cant imagine that it is. And i cant seem to google anything similar.
