I would suspect that the battery holder's contacts need to be cleaned.

If the new battery tests good on a voltmeter ( you'd be surprised how often they don't) I would suspect that the battery holder's contacts need to be cleaned.

    I found if you press both the shift and utility buttons it clears the error message. Anyone changing the battery should also note there is an additional screws you need to remove before opening the box. Its on the back left top over the midi out port. Miss that one and you risk damaging the case and port.

Drum kit won't power up


Get a voltmeter and check the power to see if it is working at the plug. the voltage should be 12vdc. If you don't have a meter, just take the power adaptor to radio shack, or any electronics supply house.
They'll check it for you. below is a copy of the manual. Good Luck!

Is a dtxplorer bought in the USA set for 110 volts and therefore do you need to get a converter to use it in a 220/240 volt country?


Yes, the adapter takes 120 volts... Best way might be to get a 220 to 110 trnasformer converter then you can run other stuff as well... Get one of the step down transformers in first column... the 100 watt one would be more than adequate, but for future things you might want higher rating.

Actually, ONLY TWO pins are used in the MIDI cable. The data is sent serially at a 31.25KBit rate.
You probably need to "map" the ones that aren't working into the appropriate codes to trigger the SR-18 sounds.

You need to COMPARE the codes sent from the DTX to those needed by the SR-18.

There also may be options in the DTX for type of drum kit such as "Latin" and selecting one of those may have the mapping already done.

In the literature of each device will be a list of the MIDI codes the DTX generates and those required by the SR-18.

essentially the percussion codes are NOT standardized completely between devices... but there is usually a way to "map" them to make it work.

you need to determine what midi note the DTXplorer is using for the snare, kick and 3rd tom, and set the SR-18 accordingly, or vica-versa. the midi notes for each instrument has to be the same.

if you cannot change the midi note in either unit to make them correspond, you can download a "midi mapper" program (i think e-drum might be one), there is freeware available if you search CNet. with a midi mapper program, you would have to get a midi/usb adapter for your computer and rouite the midi signal through a computer. midi mapping software allows you to change the midi note, when the hardware itself is incapable of doing so.

I just bought the DTXplorer e-kit, and have set it up perfectly, but get no sound from hitting anything.


Test the amplifier with another sound source to make sure the amp is good. Use a guitar or anything to test.

The Bass Drum Pedal of our Yamaha DTXplorer electronic drum kit has come to pieces. There are springs and washers everywhere and I don't know how to fix it. The instruction manual doesn't tell me. If you...


Go to one of the suppliers. Most of them will have photos of the bass pedal assembly and if you can enlarge the photo, you should be able to figure how to assemble it.

Expect to find washers on shafts between things that rub.

The owners manual at:

Check on page 9 for example. While the photo isn't the greatest you can see where the spring is.

Dtxplorer volume knob problems


No one "glues" knobs on except inapt consumers. Make sure there is not a "set screw" in the side of it. If not, it just pulls off.

You can replace the battery yourself in about 20 minutes. It is not soldered. You will need a replacement battery, which is a CR2032 watch battery, a small Philips screwdriver, and needle or thin-nosed pliers.
1. Remove all cables from the dtxplorer unit, and remove it from the drum kit rack.
2. Remove all 6 screws from the bottom side (i.e. opposite the face)
3. Remove the 3 lowest screws from the rear (jack-filled) side, including the one which holds in the little plastic power cord hook, then lift off the bottom and set aside.
4. You will see the bottom circuit board, covering the top board. Carefully pull off the spade connectors from the power switch, using pliers or patient wiggling, they are on fairly tight but will come loose. Note which one is which for proper reattachment.
5. Near the center of the board is a little white plastic post end sticking up, through a hole, from the inside (top) board, with small tabs. This loosely attaches the two boards. Using small pliers, squeeze the tabs on the post end, and pull up on the board and it will separate from the inside (top) board. Carefully move the board toward the front of the unit to free the jacks from the holes in the case, and then you can easily fold the board toward the front, like opening a book. (Don't try and remove the large wire sets attaching the two boards)
6. You will see the button-like battery. Just push it toward the spring clips at one side and lift it out. Replace it with the new battery, + side out.
7. Just reverse the steps to reassemble, hook it up and you're ready to go. Easier to do than this makes it seem. Greg
