SOURCE: Alesis M1 ACTIVE MONITOR amp circuitry board is ticking

The flashing blue LED and loss of sound on the Alesis M1 powered monitor is caused by failure of capacitor C8 (220uF, 35V) on the power supply board. It dries up due to its proximity to resistor R4 (47K, 2 W) which gets very hot. This is a design fault.

Remove the power supply board (4 corner screws and 2 mains connector screws) and disconnect the two plugs. Carefully desolder C8 and replace it. Its value is not critical (220 to 470 uF will do) but it should be a 105 deg. type, preferably at 50V.

Remove R4 and replace it with a similar resistor with its leads bent so that it is nowhere near C8, otherwise the fault will return. One end may be connected to one of the existing R4 solder pads (furthest from rear of board), and the other to the top end of resistor R3. Check that you have connected it correctly by inspecting the PCB tracks.

Replace the board and all screws and plugs before testing.

Alesis Multimix8 started smoking and now won't turn on. If it is a fuse or something how do i replace it?


A blown fuse will not produce smoke. A component failed and probably fried a resistor, which would smoke. That in turn would blow the fuse.Just replacing the fuse will not cure the problem. Your unit needs repair.

My Pioneer 1000 MK1 won't change the bpm of a song


Have you read the owners manual on how to work that feature?
There may be an enable switch to keep you from accidentally activating the speed change.

I I have the same problem. I do not see any visible damage with the power supply and am assuming it's somewhere else. I am talking to Alesis but don't yet know what I'll end up having to do. Have you solved the issue?

Blue led problem in alesis mk1 active


I dont think its anything to worry about, if the unit didnt turn on at all or the LED flickered then you would need a capacitor or 2 changing; check here; http://www.neufeld.newton.ks.us/electronics/?p=232
