Question about Lexicon Omega Pro Studio External Sound System

One day I turned it on, loaded the software. Error message...

This is where it fails. Well...Failed...

One day I turned it on, loaded the software. Error message...

Never worked again. Tried it on several computers so it wasnt my system or driver issues.

Il'l explain more in the next catagory...

one day in mid-session the USB connection mysteriously disappeared which led to weeks of trouble shooting and drivers that refused to reinstall. One can theorize that that was the fault of my computer/system especially since I'm on a PC, but the fact is that The Lexicon Omega or it's drivers was the only thing that failed; Cubase, Wavelab and all the other audio and non-audio software performed fine during this period. This is a good product. However, the failure I experience may return. Since I was left to my own trial and error methods of solving my problem I have no idea how to prevent it from happening again, even if I now know how to recover.

I have to agree with GreasSlinger.

This unit isn't worth the plastic that it's made from.

Once repaired the unit becomes unstable and tempremental.

Lexicon shouldn't be allowed to still be shipping this expensive paper weight!


They know about this problem but refuse to acknowledge it since if they do they would most probably be liable.

This product is JUNK. An associate of mine advised me to purchase this piece. It worked less than six months. Now the unit is fourteen months old. Lexicon said they'd be happy to have me return it along with a money order, certified check or credit card number because the charge would be $75.00 flat to either repair mine and send it back to me, or replace the entire unit.

The associate who advised me to purchase this piece of gear works on microcircuits each day in his line of work. He uses microscopes to examine his work. One day when his Omega quit working, he opened it up on his bench where he identified numerous cold-solder joints. He repaired them and the unit worked for about three months before becoming unstable. He opened it up a second time and noticed all the jacks were starting to get loose.

At that point, be became aware of the $75.00 option with Lexicon. Instead, he deposited his Omega into the dumpster behind his place of employment. Today, his unit is a part of the landfill in Dallas, Texas.

Please remove off your printer and uninstall the printer. Later reinstall the printer software and then connect the printer. Your harware- printer- will now be detected and installed into the PC. Now check and make a test print, the printer must work right now . If it is still showing an error of the Ink , use the maintenance key for ink chane before you remove the cartridge.

Bios failure, or what?

Hi there.
Try clearing the cmos
d015d7b.jpg<<<<< you will see in the picture a plastic jumper (in this case coloured green), move it to the other position and hit the on/off button, then put it back in its original position and power up the machine again. Hopefully the issue will have been sorted. If there is no jumper remove the battery for an hour and make sure the power cord is removed from the back before you clear the cmos

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Problem with Sansa E280R: ?Load main image failed Switch to recover mode?.

Try this;

Please copy and paste the following links into your web browser address bar, and then click Go or hit your Enter key. When prompted, choose the option to Save the file to your desktop.


1. Double click on My Computer so that you can see it on your screen.

2. Turn the player off.

3. On the top of the player is a Hold switch, move it to the right (toward the headphone jack) so you see the orange colour.

4. On the left hand side of the player is a Record button, press and hold it while connecting the player to the computer. Continue holding the Record button until you see a new icon under "My Computer" called "16MB FORMAT". Once you see that icon you may release the Record button.

5. Double click the RHAPSODY- file you downloaded earlier and open it. You will need WinZIP or WINRAR to "unpack" it. Inside you will see a file named PP5022.mi4 drag this file onto the 16MB Format in My Computer mentioned before.

6. Double Click on the Sansa.rar and open it. Drag the Sansa.fmt file into the 16MB Format as well (this forces the device format and erase all data)

6. Disconnect the player and look at the screen. Several things will be displayed, and when you see Key Lock, System Shutdown, move the Hold switch on the top back to the left.

7. Turn the player on and watch the screen. If you see a Refresh Database Fail error, you will need to follow steps 1-7 again until you do not get the error. If it does not work the first time, it could take up to 3 times for it to work.

Please RATE my solution at the bottom.

Best of Luck.
