Hello To whom it may concern,Thank you for your assistance Ive had the Xiosynth for about 4 days now,and the problem that occurs is that the console's programs and led's go all wonky and non-responsive ! it can happen when tweaking the parameters ,it has even happend it sound card mode while listening to music? The way i noticed it is the ''effects parameter's'' leds ALL light up? like ''4 to 5 ''of the leds light up and when pressing buttons that control a certain parameter, it will then control sumthing completely different ! WEIRD!! It happens for a few minutes then comes right ? Obviously this is not right, and there is a problem ! Would b greatly appreciated if you have any answers or suggestions!

Since you have had this only four days, exercise your warranty rights immediately. If you have bought this used, it is likely you have bought somebody else's problem.

    So there is no way i could fix the problem by updating the OS on the Xio ?
    or reloading the Sound banks?

    I am running OS 2.1.o7
    Is that the most up2DATE OS?

    Could i upload a different bank ,then see if it continues !

    Good or bad idea ?
    Is there anything else i could try, before taking it back ?

    ThanX Brett

    If you got a brand new unit it should be really up to date, at least enough for proper operation. I would NOT mess with trying anything as you might void the warranty.

Problem with the Mackie SRM 450 v2

It would be very unusual if the blue LED is burned out. They should last a million years. I suspect the power supply has a problem.

Need repairs on Technics SX-PX103-M Model.

Have you had any luck with your Technics piano? I've got the same piano and Mine does not work either. No lights on the control panel, only red power light comes on. Does yours have any led lights besides the power light that come on? I've investigated and I have learned a lot from this piano. 4 main boards. Im pretty sure I've got it down to one board. Interested in selling me any boards from your Piano??

Make sure amp sound is not hitting front of guitar straight on. Get a 2nd pair of hands and while you do a test strum have the other person use hand or hands and apply pressure to various places on the body(such as the bridge, headstock, sides, etc and see if any of those affect the sound. Very light strings are sometimes a problem.

Check the condition of the inout power jack and the soldering of it. Also look for cracks in the circuit board around the jack. These jacks are marginal and are often intermittent.

Loosing volumen and a high noise expecting when trying to play concern like a gorund problem or some thig like that the amp is 4 yrs old

Often a broken input jack is the problem causing this. Wiggle the cord plug when it occurs to see if that might be the problem.

Also tweek the controls slightly to see if you can get a change in the problem when it occurs.
