System diagnostic possible ? MIDI failed
« on: June 19, 2013, 09:31:02 PM »
G'day all,

Does anyone have any suggestions for running a hardware diagnostic on a Drummit 5 II brain ?

My MIDI is dead and I have a feeling the MIDI controller in the brain has died/failed.

Tony

I don't know about a diagnostic. Have you ruled out bad MIDI cable, connections?
I could tell you where to stick that piezo! :D ;)

I've just tried a new MIDI cable with no luck.

This is a little distressing.

I'm hoping 2Box will respond because there is no chance of service here in Australia.

Oh no a component has blown on the main board !

Every thing else works apart from MIDI :(

This sucks, my MIDI interface has died too.

Well you definitely know the problem now. Sorry. There is a 2Box distributor listed for Australia, but I would suggest contacting 2Box direct and see what Bengt recommends as far as getting it repaired. It's a good company:

I've contacted 2Box and they will be back from holidays on the 1st July.

My local Music store where I got the 2Box from, is going to try contacting the Australian distributor too.

Cheers.
