SR-16 gives message "ERROR: 01" when powering up

SR-16 won't work, just says "ERROR: 01" once I've turned it on. Does anyone know what this error message means? I can't find it in the manual or anywhere online. Your help is appreciated.

You likely have lost the internal memory data. This can be due to a power surge or that the internal battery has been depleted. The battery may need to be replaced.

You should reset the unit and reload the data, The manual is available online. Search Google for it.

The manual STRESSES the importance of backing up the data.

If you don'thave the backup, you MAY need to find another SR-16 owner to clone the data from.

I am not getting any sound with my used Alesis SR-16. I am getting display but just no sound. Help!


Many people have had this problem WHEN they substitued a replacement power adapter.

The CORRECT adapter MUST supply 9 volts AC, NOT DC at 830 ma or more.

The AC is converted inside the SR-16 to both + and - power to run the internal circuits. IF you have connected a 9 v DC adapter, it will NOT have damaged anything, just get the CORRECT adapter and all will be well.

Make sure you have the correct power adapter for the unit. This unit takes a 9 VAC, 830ma adapter. It will NOT work with a replacement, universal or DC type adapter.

I bought an Alesis SR-16 drum machine from an online seller advertised as "new". I plugged it in, and it appears that my "new" machine has had all the factory preset patterns erased! Is there a way to...


Hi.

The SR-16 has 50 preset patterns that are built in, I do not think they can be deleted, if there are no patterns the unit may be defective, even if patterns can be reinstalled using an rmidi file or re-flashing the unit.

To reset an Alesis drum machine you have to hold down both Play and Erase buttons while you power on the machine at the same time.

If that does not work, the presets are held into an rmidi file , the Rmidi file is not available for download. I think it can be purchased contacting Alesis or Rmidi.

I quote from Alesis Rmidi page:

"A rMidi Import/Export File named 'Sr16PresetKits.xml' containing the Sr16 Preset Kits has been installed within the folder named 'Sr16' within the directory in which you installed the rMidi FrameWork software. You can Import these Kits into the rMidi Drums Control if you wish. "


Check if you have the file in the folder.

If not the Sr16 will allows you to export your User Drum patterns, but I do not think you can export factory patterns.

The sr-16 powers up briefly then shuts off, I'm using a new AC adaptor ,music store repairman say it's unrepairable ,it's only 2 years old,what gives?


There has to be a component inside that is faulty. That causes the power supply to quit. If the repairman said it is not able to be repaired it means that the part can't be replaced due to unavailability or the cost. You could try taking it to another repairman at a music store that sells Alesis products if you aren't satisfied with his his answer. SR-16 s are pretty reliable and it takes a lot to damage them to the point where they can't be repaired. If you can't get it repaired locally and you think it can be repaired contact Alesis at http://www.alesis.com/content1024 to find out the closest place to ship it to and get it repaired.

Alesis SR-16 distorted sounds


The distorted and low volume output plus noise is usually caused by using the wrong power supply adapter. The Alesis SR-16 takes a 9V "A/C" supply not "DC". The A/C supply provides a negative voltage swing which wouldn't exist with a DC supply. So check and make sure you have 9V A/C output supply not DC.

Alesis Sr 16 stopped working altogether


I have never experienced this problem, but I know that you can reset the SR-16 to all default settings by doing something like holding down play when powering up. Try that & I'll look into the matter and get back to you with a definite answer. Peace and good luck until then.
