Question about Alesis MasterLink ML-9600
Unit won't turn on. I tried pressing "on" "play" and "record" buttons at same time as suggested in alesis online site, but that didn't do anything.
problem occured after I bumped it slightly while moving some stuff around.
Hi. You may have a corrupt boot file or something. When you say "it won't turn on..", do you mean there is no power up at all? Or Just trouble booting?
I had a problem with my one (v2.0) once, where it wouldn't start or boot - it would just hang at the initial 'welcome' screen.. and then not do anything. The problem was traced to a corrupt sector on the drive (the initialising boot sector).
My local Alesis repair agent (Numark Alesis UK, London) told me that it would be beneficial to have a new drive in this case - to make sure there aren't any critical errors on the disk surface - and for them to ghost all my existing Playlists and data over to the new drive. They installed the latest boot and software and away I went - all fixed.
The other thing, in your case, is that if you bumped it, you could have knocked the read-write heads out of sink - in which case your data and disk could be perfectly alright. It may mean that the unit just needs to be re-calibrated.
If there is no power-up at all then it could be electronic components that have gone. There is two solenoids installed, one at initial power-up stage to protect from spikes and surges whilst unit is switched off - and another one (which you hear when addressing the current Edit Mode HD head (playing or recording). The latter solenoid is there to protect the disk surface from unwanted artifacts whilst spinning - due to the Masterlink HD spinning all the time whilst in Edit Mode.
Hope this helps.
