    Thanks for your help. Fostex V160EX Multi-track recorded was purchased by my church, new - about 2 years ago, but never used. I'm trying to learn the unit. It's not hooked up to anything. Lights under the track buttons and the display will illuminate but no menu in the display screen.

I answered your chat request but for some reason, I couldn't get through. Perhaps too much lag with my Internet connection, my apologies for the inconvenience.

In any case, should you still need assistance, a couple of request for information pls.
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.

I hooked up to a secondary/backup DSL, perhaps you care to give the Live Chat another try?

Kindest regards.

    2 years is rather a long time to be sitting on a shelf. 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.

    Hope this be of help/ Pls post back for any developments or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.

Can i do a live chat

John, fixya is a volunteer organization. We try to help people because we enjoy helping people. Very few of us have ability to do a live chat with you. I certainly don't.

We also don't know about any previous questions you've had, there isn't any way for us to connect this query with any others. ..

If you have a serious problem with your player, perhaps you need to connect with the manufacturer for technical support.

My Sony DVP-CX777ES player just opens and closes several times upon powering up. Then it stops and I get an error message that reads "C 32 00." Then it turns off.

Please check door mechanism as explained in chat session and possibly loading belt and/or door switches could be culprit and causing problem.
Hope this will help.

My email password is stolen and I need this email,because all my friends and teachers chat me through it,plus that I need to chat my family through

The only thing you can do is to hurry up and change the password before the thief changes it. If it has been changed already by the thief, well, you can't do anything.
Good luck

Is there a way i can make it so my symphonic model wf803 can play dvds from other regions?

As you can see in the highlighted area below, I have already purchased the premium plan. This has not helped me solve my problem. I don't know what to do next. I paid almost $20 for a session that was cut short and I have not been able to reconnect. When ever I try your program wants to charge me again even though I sign in. So now what?? On top of that by the time I get an answer to my emails to you my time will have run out. Hmmmmmm, doesn't seem right!! Thank You for Purchasing Premium Live Chat Assistance!
