    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.

Hello Jim,

I'm glad I was able to help you. Hopefully you can return the help regarding my assitance on the chat session for your dryer.

For some reason your accepting my solution has not been recorded although you rated the help as 4 thumbs account shows the solution was rejected.

Perhaps you can log in again and amend the error, as much as I like to help with the chat sessions, it is based on customers honoring the system and us experts providing help on the premise of getting paid.

Thank you.

I was accidently disconnected with my tech supporter. I have already paid my $20 fee

Please invite another chat assistance without accepting the last disconnected session. You can invite or seek as many assistances as you wish until your problem is fixed and until most helpful session is accepted. Good luck.

I was talking to someone and I lost him.

Hello Bob! Sometimes the best way to reconnect with an expert that you were chatting with is to just open up another chat request.

The good news is that you, as the paying customer, gets to decide if the expert provided a proper response to your question, or provided the solution to your problem.

By opening up another chat request, shortly after you got disconnected, you stand a pretty good chance of getting them again. If you get someone else, you can politely decline them and mark the session as "rejected" meaning you won't get charged for that particular chat. Further, since it is a paid chat session, the expert won't have their rating percentages adversely affected by your rejection of the session.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

PS: Just wondering if you know Bob_computer in Canada!

Chat termination sequence

When I have ended a Live Chat session the tunnel is just lost although the Chat Window is still up. You have to go to your Profile Page look down the page to the header My Chat Sessions, then find the one you were just in and under that click the additional link, My Chat Session. You will see a full transcript.

On another note however, Lauren intends to purchase a Live Chat and as an expert engage in a Live Chat. She will then post to the Lounge and include Screen shots of both sides of the session so we can all then debate what to improve.

I've endlessly suggested our Live Chats initiate a IM window, probably MS Messenger, but I want the company to look hard at Google Talk, as Google is a major investor of FixYa the company.

Does that help you, or not?
