Question about Alesis MasterLink ML-9600
Masterlink won't power up seems to have 2 issues first it says fatal errror CDR 277 then HD error 178 does that mean both my cd burner and hard drive need replacing ? thanks for any response .
Instead of going for the big deal, I'd start small. Look at the drives first. I'm in the process of rebuilding a Masterlink, and I got the "178" error after installing the new 30GB HDD because I left the jumper in the factory position ("Cable Select"). I repositioned the jumper to "Master" and no more error. The CD drive is currently out of the unit (being replaced) and that's creating a 277 error. I'm assuming once the replacement CD drive is installed (tonight) that will go away too. Replacement hard disks and cd-rw drives are cheap- . I'd try swapping them out and/or examining the jumpers and cables before assuming you need more expensive electronic repairs.... Good luck! I may need it too!

Look for cold solder joints on the power supply.
