Open the unit and see if it has a battery that holds the settings. Check the voltage... it should be around 3 volts. If less than 2.5 volts replace it.

Verify the INTERNAL regulated power supply as the external you verified with new unit. The external is likely regulated within the D4 and either due to an overload or bad regulator may be below the voltage to run the processor. It is likely 5 volts and anything over 4.85 would be acceptable.

It appears that you have to select a "Kit" of drums when using the external triggers. It appears that the volume level for the kit and that for each voice MAY all have to be set, especially after new firmware download. Read manual about KIT volume level and selecting voice and volume level for those. Manual is NOT very clear about these things and you have to try them as this is where the probllem is.

Anybody ever figure out the Alesis DM10 module blank screen with some led lights on?


Try a reset before going to assistance:
There are two ways to reset the DM10:
To fully restore the module to original factory settings, hold the EXIT and STORE buttons while powering on the module.
To reset only the kits, sequences, or trigger settings:
  1. Press UTILITY to enter the main Utility Menu.
  2. Press SYS (F4) to access the Accompaniment Settings.
  3. Press INIT (F2) to access the reinitialization page.
  4. Use CURSOR UP/DOWN to move through the following menu items:
    • All Kits: All of the module's kits and their settings will return to factory default
    • All Sequences: All of the module's sequences and their settings will return to factory default
    • All Trigger Settings: All of the module's trigger settings will return to factory default
  5. Highlight the option you would like to reset, then press EXEC (F4).
  6. A window will appear asking you to confirm your choice. To confirm and reinitialize the selected settings, press YES (F1). To Cancel, press CANCEL (F2 or F2).

Kick drum and cymbals will not trigger if i hit them at the same time


Have a look in the manual for advanced settings related to crosstalk between pads. You can adjust, for example, so that one pad isn't causing another to react...common issue and can usually be configured to tell one pad to not react if one or several specific pads are struck. Sounds like yours are set too high for that rejection.

I need help my new dm10 mod comes up with calibration fail when I turn it on even with nothing plugged into it. I have updated the firmware it just wont talk to the kit at all


you have to make sure the red crash 1 is on the cymbal w the choke zone on it and plugged into crash one on the module. crash 2 goes in the cymbal w no choke and plugs into perc 2 on the module. also make sure the ride zones are plugged in to the corresponding zone on the module. bottom line double check all connections and reference the setup guide if u still have it. i had the same issue.

Blank display no functions power ok


Not sure what you mean by "power OK",

If you have checked that the logic circuits are getting a clean 5 volts DC THEN the power is OK. This requires an oscilloscope AND a voltmeter.

USUALLY when a display shows characters like that it means the processor hasn't initialized the display. Most common problem is too low power supply that doesn't permit the processor to come out of reset.

Bad filter caps can cause the 5 volts to dip below 4.6 volts which would be minimum to operate. A voltmeter might still register near 5 volts but a scope will show the voltage dips.
