  • faxshun Jan 13, 2008

    When i take a sample with my mpc 2000 there is a popping sound like a metranome(set at 160 bpm) and also a fuzz sound. These sounds are imprinted on my samples. I have tried unplugging the 1/4 in's and sampling nothing just to see if it is the cables but the sounds are still there. I was wondering if there was anything i could do to fix this problem or if my mpc is in need of professional help?

A line in my akai mpc 2000 how to fix it

Do you mean a line in the LCD screen?

If so..

I don't think there's a way to fix it.

A company other than AKAI started selling AFTERMARKET screens.
They were so popular, that they SOLD OUT. I think they're currently in re-production.

Screens on ebay are around $250.00

MPC2000's on ebay are around $300.00

You might get a deal If you can find a broken MPC with a good screen.

Good luck.

Only get the screen mpc tm

If i understand you correctly, the MPC logo comes on the screen and nothing more. If that is the case the problem is a hardware issue or windows files have become corrupted. If you have the recovery disc attempt to re-install your operational system, if that fails I suggest a professional to assess the situation.

My mpc, on turn on does not display, but black screen for hours

Use whatever software you have or can get to check the memory. Use task manager to see how busy your memory is, and it will check other stuff too.

First ensure that you are saving into the right folder, on MPC HD and not into a subfolder, and that files are in correct midi format. Also ensure that connections to MPC are OK.

If connections and saved files are ok, then probably you need to reinstall Mpc 500software onto your computer, using disk provided with your Mpc 500.

Mpc 4000 lcd

Hey, it sounds like the LCD is not receiving any signal from the video output. I would take it somewhere to be opened up for a closer inspection. Again the cause could be something more serious on the internal circuitry. No way of telling till the schemata is tested.

Good luck
