M1 Active Mk2 blows fuse as soon as it's turned on., I bought them second hand so not under warranty. Anyone have any ideas if this is easy/expensive to fix or should I cut my losses and get a new pair ?

It is related to the 1st problem which is similar a little.
But in this situation the real problem is the Amplifier IC which sent a high ampere
back to power supply and cut out the fuse.
The best thing to do bring it to repair shop to trouble shoot the power supply.
I suggest that because the a lot of parts or IC brand suited to this specification for
replacing the exact defective parts.

Alesis M1 Active Mk2 Speaker won't Power Up


Hi, This is usually the Capacitor C8 on the powerboard it usually bulges and pops, its becuase its right next to a resistor which gets very hot and sometimes puts the capacitor into meltdown, yours might have gone past that stage but this is worth a look; http://www.neufeld.newton.ks.us/electronics/?p=232

Hope this helps

Cheers

Alesis m1 mk2 active emits low pitch hum and does not work


You need to take a closer look really, see if anything on the power supply board inside has melted, burned, popped, etc.

Fuse blows found bad parts on the board...


Hi, Email Alesis and ask very nicely and they might email you a copy of the schematics, which also has the parts listed, etc.

I had the problem of the blinking LED's a few years back, really odd, and fixed it, and now I do a search and all I can find is people with the same problem or similar. Depending on how bad the damage is, it should be repairable unless its done extensive damage to the PCB board. PCB boards are still available to buy, dont bin it, they are too good to be binned ;)

ALESIS M1 ACTIVE MK2 CONE VIBRATION!


Hello!
my speaker Alessis M1 Active 620, with a roar is very strong in the speaker, the potentiometer does not attenuate, change the volume. Ja switched capacitor C8, based on my research of other users, but got no result. When you press the power button, the LED lights in blue, and even change the color to red, producing a noise (snoring) very strong.
help!
Please help me!
