I refcently purchased a MR16 Fostex it comes on lights up and shuts down . What is possibly wrong ?


Power supply. Most likely an electrolytic is failing. It may or may not show any signs of it. Other possibilities are bad solder connections, loose wire connections, or possibly a bad MOSFET if it uses a switchmode power supply. Also check the general construction to make sure nothing is shorting internally. Sometimes wires get pinched.

Hi,

1. Is it a stand alone or have you get it hooked up to a PC?
2. If with a PC, Win Xp or Vista, Mac?
3. Is the unit new, refurbished, bought from ebay or from a dealer.

If the unit is more than 2 years old then the only solution is to get it repaired or buy a new one instead.There are instances where internal software gets corrupted or even in some models, memory battery has leaked or depleted.

Unfortunately there is no external reset for the unit. It has to be opened up and diagnosed with the use of a special diagnostic PC and software. The firmware may also need to be re-installed or updated.

Am afraid your only best bet would be to open the unit and check the inside. Easy enough would be memory battery (if ever present) since they look like a thick coin (Lithium 3Volts) but other than that, most repairs would need knowledge and familiarity with electronic component and circuitry, a service manual, a DVM, a soldering iron and even as earlier stated some specialized equipment.

Perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional or the nearest authorized Service Center.

Goodluck,

My Fostex MR-8HD recorder's LCD display won't show me anything when I turn on the recorder. Everything else power's on and works properly. I can even hear it it working. I can't see the LCD display...


Check if the display has a contrast control. When these get turned down, the display is blank. Sometimes they are a littel shaft coming out of the case, other times it is a setting in a menu... how they expect you to see the display to set it in these cases is beyond me...

Hello. It's my first time on this forum. I just got a Fostex VF08 multitrack recorder from a friend of mine. But when I switch it on, the display is just orange, showing no text. All the commands seem to...


You will need to put th set on for really some time. I assume that the person who gave you must give more information if the recorder was working prior to this or was idling for along time.
If so leave the set on and allow the electronics to bring up voltage to all stages.
If there is no result look near the display unit the links, the cconnectors and the processor.
Now is your experienced friend can check out the prrocessor and display interface we can have some leads.
So check this out and respond

Note: Always click on the 'Apply', and 'OK' buttons after application changes for the process to take effect. 9.
