Question about Digidesign 003 Rack Firewire Audio Interface Promo/Demo License for PC, Mac, Sun (9900-38730-00)

2 Answers

My PC crashed, a short circuit problem when I kicked the power board. My laptop HP DV6000 PC with Vista was repaired, but my Pro tools Le 8 does not recognize/locate the 003 hardware anymore. The PT was on record ready mode when the short occured. I was adjusting mics. In my computed the ieee 1394 port was not recognized by the device manager, so I purchased an express card that does recognize the ieee 1394, but does not upload or use the drivers and can't get it to recognize or use the drivers. Also the "link" led light next to the firewire in the back of the 003 rack is always off now. Can you help me?

    N,



    Thanks for the reply.



    I got an "express card" and connected it to the slot in my computer, to create a new port. It is recognized by the PC, however I can't get it to recognize the 003 rack interface when i launch pro tools.



    So what you are saying is that the fire wire ports in the back of the 003 were probably damaged?



    One thing to note is that both the PC and the interface were on two separate outlets, so I only created a circuit for the PC outlet. The only thing connecting the 003 rack and the PC is the 6 to 4 pin firewire cable.



    Is it possible that I also busted my two firewire outs from the 003?



    thanks,



    ale

    Could this also affected my fire wire ports out of the 003 rack?

    Both units (PC and 003) were connected to different outlets and the only connection between them was the 6 to 4 pine firewire cable.

Make sure in Pro Tools you specify the interface to use for connecting to the 003. I believe its under tools / settings or options something like that. It probably still is trying to talk to the device on your previous firewire ports, even though they aren't working / don't exist any longer.

Make sure PT is set up to use the new firewire port you used, the link indicator should now show that its talking to the 003. If it does not then it does sound like the firewire ports on the 003 have been zapped. It is possible for a short to come back through firewire cables and fry components like that. If the problem still persists check with Digidesign about repairing the ports.

Thanks

Hi,

The systems port not getting recognized occurs because of the follwing reason..

1) Surge in the power which may damage the port..

2) Dust in the port.

3) Port manually blocked by the user..

Since you have clearly said that the problem is with the power, the only way is to repair the motherboard or excvhange the board...If your board carries waranty and if you dont see any black color nar the port , you can apply for the warranty


ENJOY! RATE THIS SOLTUION

The dv6000 series was commonly affected by the video card heating up and reseating itself. This was usually a soldering issue. You have a few options, You can either replace the motherboard, or have the motherboard reflowed. Unfortunately the video card itself is not detachable or individually replaceable.

I personally would recommend the second option as purchasing another dv6000 board will likely end you up in the same situation a year or 2 later.

A repair / reflow services on ebay
Dv6000 Repair

This repair tech only does amd processor models, Not intel.

Hope this helps.

I have an HP DV6700 Laptop Computer. The internal powersupply prong is loose...How can I fix it?


The laptop needs to be disassembled down to the motherboard, the power plug is not soldered to the motherboard, it is actually a satellite card attached to the motherboard via a small cable. The entire assembly can be purchased on Ebay for under 30 bucks. Below is an example of the listing. I will include a link to an illustrated disassembly guide.

HP Pavilion dv6000 plugged in not charging, I have a new battery.....PLZ Help.


Its the DC charging jack that you plug the charger into on one of the sides of the laptop. Do a google search, go and search for "HP dv6000 DC jack problem charging" (leave out the quotes) and you will see this is a common issue with the dv6000 and laptops in general. Many will just replace the whole laptop motherboard as the DC jack is attached to the board. If you know what you're doing, you change out the jack, quick repair job and keep your own board, but fixed. I would fix it if it were mine. You may be able to find someone local online but if you need someone to do the repair, I'm in the repair directory, as are many others qualified.


Note: It may come to a point, or the situation may just fit better to replace the entire board instead of the port alone. This is usually when the jack is not seated and easily replaceable, or if you are under warranty, HP will replace the whole board.

How to downgrade vista to winxp pro at Hp pavilion DV4-1204TU ?


Well, this may make you think twice:

I bought a presario from circuit city last year, and I paid $200 to downgrade to XP. Everything was fine until it crashed last week. IT went completely bizzerk. HP won't provide support, cause I changed it. Circuit City is out of business, not much help there.

Basically, I am completely #$%%@@.

I am now paying to get Vista put back in. :-(

Power led goes on and then goes off.


Some years ago I had a similar issue with an IBM and with that one the capacitor that filters out the current (right after the power jack, usually the very first capacitor that gets the power) was short circuited. It was a ceramical capacitor, at least that's how we call them here.

HP Pavilion laptop freezes daily and i force manual shutdown


It sound's like there could be a compatibility problem, maybe corrupt file's, or missing start up file's, have you tried doing a window's update, or doing a disc check on the hard drive, go to my computer right click the drive then go to propertie's, click on tool's then click check now for drive error's. if that do'es not work you may need to reformat back to the original xp os.
