Zoom G9.2tt Gituar Effects Console

During a recent start up, the Zoom G9.2tt started to boot up and just died. I have confirmed the power supply is working, and the two 12AX7 tubes are glowing when the unit is switched on. This unit is approximately two years old and was recently updated with the latest Zoom operating system.

However, the display does not light up, none of the console lights come on, and I'm getting no output from the G9.

While on the surface it would appear to be a power supply problem, it seems to me more like a CPU type issue.

No professional repair available in my area.

Any ideas as to what the problem might be?

Thanks,

Fred

    Thanks for your recommendations. Unfortunately I've already tried that route. Zoom will only refer you to Samson, and I can't get a service response from Samson. I even tracked down a Zoom regional sales rep that was of no help!

    This is a great piece of guitar equipment but nobody wants to touch it. Exasperating!

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks,

    Fred

    I just had this happen to me, only when I turn it on I get the boot initializing screen (G9 in red then it says something like system version 1.07 and it freezes.

    There seems to be no power going to the unit; no lights, no LCD display; power supply works with my 1266 but seems loose on the 1608.

It blinks with "be" and turns off


It may be "but" that you're seeing, which indicates the batteries are low. Use the AC adapter made just for this model only, and the guitar needs to be plugged in to turn the unit on. A full manual for this Zoom model can be found here:

Try lubing the pivots with CRC226 availlable at Home Depot in the electrical dept. It is plastic safe and should fix the problem.

I'm a Zoom 9000 owner (since '93, I think) Did you try batteries only? Are you plugging the guitar into the "in / power" jack and not mistakenly using another jack? When you plug in the guitar, in to the Zoom 9000 does the window come on with the settings shown? Sorry, I know some of these are obvious but always the chance of us being human. If all that seems fine, then I would read though a manual to see if maybe it is a setting problem, i.e., sound somehow got inadvertently turned off. If you don't have one, an internet search will lead you to one. Sorry, wish I knew more.
