Question about JBL JRX118SP Microphone

1 Answer

Yamaha AW16G Hi, I have owned a Yamaha AW16g Multitrack for some years but recently have encountered a seemingly fatal error. Upon turning the unit on, the display reads, "RECORDER RUNNING", And wont let me perform any functions at all. I have spoken to Yamaha who told me that there was an error with the hard drive and to format it but the unit wont even let me format the disk!! I was wondering if you dealt with repairs on such a unit as this and if the problem can be rectified. Any help or advice you can give would be much apeeciated. Many Thanks.

Maybe you could remove the hard drive and install it in a computer or laptop and then use the computer to format the hard drive.
But this would totally erase the hdd and then you would have to re-install the operating system.
I believe the recovery disk that comes with the unit would re-install the OS, but I'm not sure.
Maybe contact Yamaha and ask them if this method would work.
I hope this helps you.

Product - YAMAHA AW16G Digital Workstation Two problems: 1) The record button broke (the plastic tabs that hold it in place). The record function still works, but I need to have the actual button...

Unless you are a electronics expert or a pediatric surgeon, I don't think you can attempt to fix the button yourself. And more over these buttons are not available as spares. New company policies are use and throw. Even life has become disposable today !!

Yamaha dvd s-80 showing error code H01 when trying to play disc. What does this mean ?

The manual isn't much help, is it?

It seems the "H01" is some kind of common and fatal error code in many disc players and I have yet to find anyone who has paid the ransom, er cost, to get one fixed as it is cheaper and makes more economical sense to just buy a new unit...

Replace it is the answer. Search for suitable replacement at OR go to Yamaha America and ask for parts and order a replacement jack. It will require opening the unit ad soldering. If you are not competent electronically, best take it to a shop for repair.

Maybe you could pull the hard drive out and mount it inside a computer, and format it that way.
