Yikes, that is pretty much as bad as it sounds. That means you have major hardware failure inside the device, specifically the control board of the player. This is basically the main piece of the device and is quite expensive to replace, many times the board itself costs more than a new unit, let alone and service charges to put it in. Unfortunately you are going to be far better off just replacing this unit.

One thing to try, to see if somehow it is just a temporary glitch (I doubt it is, but worth a try) is to just unplug it from the power source for a good 5 minutes, then replug it in. Hopefully that will "kick-start" the board back into gear and get it working at least for a while again. Definitely worth a try.

Thanks,
Tim

Upon turning on our Masterlink, it read "LOAD OS".


if you are computer savy, you can disassemble the masterlink and test the cd drive in another computer. if it works, check the power connector to the cd drive. switch it with the hd connector to see if it fires up.


keep use posted.

Alesis Masterlink ML 9600 won't power up.


After reviewing the repair and owners manuals. I have come to the conclusion that there is a short in the power supply board. Your drives should be fine. I don't know off hand how expensive it is to fix in your area. I would say approx $200

I tried the "pressing play/pause and record simultaneously" during power
up, and it worked.....dunno for how long. The unit still makes strange
noises occasionally and doesn't seem completely healthy, but it's up
and I'm copying files that I want to save. We'll see.

New HD -- You could try to press play/rec on the boot up --may reset ...but, doubtful... Try to replace with a new 30gb drive > nothing larger.
