It sounds like either:

a) you've got the Loop/delay parameter set to delay, in which case you want
to set it back to Loop. (The overdub LED would be always green if this is
the case.)


b) something funky is happening with the pedal you are using, and it is
causing overdub to turn on all the time. (The overdub LED would be always
red in this case.) Try removing the pedal and using the front panel 
to see if it makes a difference.
