I have the same problem. To reset you have to hold down the first row (horizontally) and third row of buttons on the upper left side (6 buttons in all) and power on the machine. The lights should all flash and come back on.

This reset does not however fix the problem that all the lights remain on. Has anyone found a fix to this? I've read that this is caused by a "burnt" out firewire card (due to the flaw in design that the card in the system draws too much power from the computer).

I've also read that the card is somewhere between $150 and $300...

My advices to anyone getting this thing... get as long a warranty as possible, because it will probably break after 4-5 years of light to moderate use.

I have a hercules 16/12 fw, and it will not initialise without leaving it switched off for a couple of hours after it initialises it will only play for about 15 mins and then bombs out the software states...

Hi, the problem are two voltage regulators, marked as VR6 (LM2937ET-5) and VR10 (LM2937ET-12). These are soldered to the PC board and became very hot, causing malfunctions. I solved replacing with a 7805 and a 7812 placed on a heat sink and now works great. Hope this help you.

Sound problem

Open the Volume icon at the bottom right of the screen and choose 'properties'
This will open a small box. Make sure all the level indicators are at maximum and nothing is muted. Also check in the soundcard software if you have selected any "effects". If you have, try playing around with the different options and see if that helps.

If this does not help, try the speakers on a different PC. Should you encounter the same problem there as well, it could be that the speakers are defective.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

If, however it has not, then please do not assign a rating just yet. Please post back as to what steps you took, results, etc, and I will try to assist you further as best as I can.

Thank you for using FIXYA!
