002 Rack Needs Repair

Hey, Fixya Folks.
I have an 002 rack that has been diagnosed with blown firewire ports. It came to me this way through an EBay sale & I'm not happy about that, but I'm stuck with having to repair it. I contacted a repair shop in NYC (I'm in North New Jersey) but they want 110.00 to evaluate it & won't tell me what the cost would be if this is actually the problem. My questions are:
Does anyone have a suggestion as to a repair shop that will give me an estimate?
Is this something I can fix myself (I'm capable if the parts are available)?
Has anyone had experience with repairing this ailment?
Thanks for any & all help.
Cayce

    I also have the same problemĀ 
    One port is out the other is failing...


    I have replaced the power supply...
    Digi told me to look inside at the lights on the firewire card


    One of them was off now the other I believe if failing...
    They told me to take it to an authorized reapir shop and get new firewire....


    I have yet to find a shop or a price on a card. They quoted me if belive about 200

My Digi 002 Rack is "Clicking" (the actual unit).


Hi
First thing to do is a hard reset. Merely unplug the power cord for 4 hours, then power up again.In order to dissipated the remaining current stored in the memory and disconnect all unit connected.

HI ALL! I HAVE A DIGIDESIGN 002 RACK. MY PROBLEM IS WHEN I AM WORKING LETS SAY IN 5 TO 10 MINUTES. THE FRONT LIGHT THAT SAYS ( 1394 ) GOES OFF... I HAVE TO TURN OFF AND WHAIT LIKE 20 MIN. AND START...


hello all. this is a very common problem with the 002. get out the dish gloves and follow these instructions. let me know how you go. its my own personal solution which worked for me. may or may not but its definately worth a shot.
unplug the unit and put on some rubber gloves. unscrew the top off the unit. if the front of the unit is facing you, on the far right is the power console. I had the same problem with mine. The problem is that the firewire isnt receiving power all the time. So what you do is just unplug the plug at each end of the power unit, and plug it back on. do that ten times and that should solve it. did for me. i know, sounds too good to be true, but give it a shot

My computer won't recognize my 002 rack. Just


probably too late..but the internal power harnesses go bad on the digi oo2. I bought mine from sweetwater and they sent me a new harness for free.

good luck

Firewire problem


this sounds like you could have blown the firewire port on the mac, this can happen if you plug in and out, even though it is supposed to be hot swappable. if nothing shows up on the firewire port but does show up on other ports on other computers then that could be the problem. its back to base with apple for a repair.

Which firewire cable do I use with my Digi 002 console?


If you are using a desktop comupter, you will need any 6-pin to 6-pin connection. If you are using a laptop, you will need any 6-pin to 4-pin connection.
