Hello,
I just had the same problem... It has to do with the connectors from the power harness. Found this on the internet and it did the trick for me...
Goodluck!
It seems like it's only a matter of time before the digi002 (rack and non-rack) have this problem. You'll go to turn it on and the mute light turns on and nothing else. You don't hear the 3 clicks that you usually hear when turning it on. Your computer doesn't recognize it. Then you start swearing and promising to quit recording forever. After all that happens, you have 2 options:

1. call digidesign. they've been replacing the power harness (source of problem) for just about everyone, even if you're out of warranty and it's free (including the tech support over the phone). don't pay them anything. maybe shipping.

2. most people seem to have the same problem after a while after getting their new power harness. lots of people are saying it's not even the harness - just the connectors. so last night i had this problem and i opened up the top of the box and unplugged and plugged back in the little rubber-covered wires going from the power cord to the rest of the 002. turned it on. works fine. i may try to use some of that connector-cleaner from GC if it happens again.

so if you find this happening, don't panic. try the above. takes 5-10 minutes (only because of all of the screws)

    Not totally sure! The Solution above has always worked in the Past with no more Problems. I hope that the System is not Bad. I have never had anyone respond back Before.

My Digi 002 Rack is "Clicking" (the actual unit).


Hi
First thing to do is a hard reset. Merely unplug the power cord for 4 hours, then power up again.In order to dissipated the remaining current stored in the memory and disconnect all unit connected.

Hi i have digi design rack 002 with pro tools le


Try the other port on the 002. If that doesnt work, I recommend trying the 002 on a computer that does have 400 to see if it will connect then.

If it doesnt, then you may have a couple blown firewire chips inside your 002. It happens, and can be fixed.

Macbook pro does not detect digi 002 rack


yeah i have an intel imac and had the same problem. I upgraded to pt le 7.4 and now pro tools recognizes the 002 rack and it works fine, but still the core audio manager does not recognize the hardware. It says in "use" when I first turn on the 002 rack, then it says not connected after about 20 seconds. I don't think this really matters though because I have beeen able to do everything fine without having the core audio managr recognizing the 002 rack. I hope that helps

Hey -

Unplugging the harness and reconnecting only worked for a couple days. It turned out that I had to call digidesign and they sent me a new power harness for free. That fixed it for me.

002 rack red light only


DSQRD here...
After disconnecting power source, I went back in and unhooked and rehooked the white plastic connector located at the front of the unit. It's in between the power switch and the mainframe and has about 6 wires through it. This time it worked and the 002 lit up. It's kinda humid in my studio and I think the connections film up easily. I plan to address that issue as well. It was a coincidence I guess that all this started the same time I hooked up the external drive. It through us off as to what had happened.
Good luck
