Question about PreSonus FIREPOD (673454000539) Audio Input
Mine dead stopped turning on one day and I found the solution. You will
need a appropriate sized phillips scredriver, a head lamp or LED
keychain that you can aim from your mouth, a slim flat head screwdriver,
and some skinny needle nosed pliers.
-- unplug it.
-- Unscrew/remove the right side panel, on the side of the AC connector (I don't advise opening the entire box as it was a bit hard for me to get back together)
-- fire up your light source, you'll need it!
-- *looking at the now open unit form the open side* you will see the green mainboard horizontally across the bottom.
-- *key in on the near right corner next to the small clear tube fuse*
-- the part that is having problems is the wire lead that has a small white vertical plastic connector, (near right corner next to the fuse) (it will probably have a white "tab" coming from the connector that is slightly out of place)
-- take the needle nose pliers, gently grasping the plastic connector on the wire side, and disconnect the wires from the mainboard connector. (may help to use the slim flat head driver to help dislodge this).
-- once it is disconnected, use the slim phillips to realign that white "connector tab" and slowly (making sure to not bend the pins) re-connect that wire piece with the mainboard connector.
Plug the power in and try flipping it on. Hopefully this fixes it for you. I have had to do this about every 6 months over this last year, but its cheaper than buying a new card!

Could be a bad cable, bad firewire card in computer, or the unit is damaged. Might want to connect the unit to someone else's computer with a new Firewire cable. If this doesn't work, chances are that the unit is defective. I have the same problem right now and I'm having to send the unit back to Presonus. They charge $85 for parts labor and the return shipping. The replace the entire board, so it's like getting a new unit. Hope that helps.
