My 1176 pedal blinks blue when powering on - no Owners manual reference

Im thinking this has something to do with the power supply being used, im not sure. I cant find any info about it, online or in the manual. The same power supply unit wasnt doing this at first im pretty sure, so that shoots holes in my theroy.

It needs 250ma.
I noticed that mine stays solid blue if I don’t give it enough juice.

Blue lights are part of the startup sequence. Does it still work?
Thanks Les. Yeah its brand new. Im not saying you are wrong but the first couple of times of plugging in, i think it simply worked without any kind of sequence. The only time i saw any flashing lights was when my powere adapter seemed questionable.

Also wonder what you guys think about where the the flow of power is interrupted when the pedal is switched OFF, but left plugged in. Meaning if i AM slightly overpowering it, maybe to leave it plugged in when not in use isnt the best idea?

obviously im just going to grab the right power supply, ive got 7 of them but thats the only on that operates my pedal lmao! ive mostly used batteries over my years, when ive felt the need to use pedals or wasnt using rack gear, and im 99.99% sure this is the first stomp ive owned that doesnt take batteries at all(seems crazy to me, but i guess things are different in this era of guitar) stomps are cool...i think you can benefit from them as a player so the motivation heres is trying to get them more involved.

Anyway thanks for any thought here.

The pedal will only draw as much as it needs. I have my 1176 pedal constantly plugged into a power supply under my recording desk. It’s a Boss psa120 with 500ma available.
I definitely would not ‘daisy chain’ any of the UAFX pedals.
If you want to start using more than one pedal at a time, get a high quality multi out power supply as Les mentioned.
Strymon, Cioks, VoodobLabs, TrueTone are all good. Make sure there’s at least a couple of outs that offer high current ( 400 or 500 ma).
