Yamaha M7CL-48 Fader
« on: July 27, 2017, 04:19:23 pm »

Got this question from a church I frequent & help out at. Felt best in this forum since it's been used a lot in this section of the industry.

Quote
Quick question – have you ever had our M7s randomly adjust settings on its own while you were using it? Steve was running sound on Sunday and in the middle of the second song a BUNCH of faders began moving by themselves almost as if it was recalling a different scene. Steve had the iPad with him, so someone wouldn’t have connected to the board with the iPad and messed around with it.
 
I didn’t know if this was just a random occurrence or if it was something that has happened before?

Perform a fader calibration. You'll likely find that several faders won't calibrate and need to be replaced.

Sometimes faders can be calibrated a couple times if necessary to get them to pass, but most M7s are now getting up there, so fader replacement is likely needed.

Full Compass sells fader banks of 8 faders for around $300.  There are two different part numbers - one for the channel faders, and a different part for the CentraLogic bank.  IIRC FullCompass only has one version on their website, so a call will get you sorted out.

Perhaps a silly question but, are they certain no one had wifi'd into the console with a smartphone or tablet?

Good thoughts on the fader calibration.

The board isn't very old. Campus bought new/refurb unit ~1.8yrs ago now.

This was my response before posting their question here:

I have never heard/read/experienced of something exactly like that.

Though, there's been plenty of little errors like that over the long lifetime of the board's service in the industry.

If it was indeed a scene change you can undo the scene change in the scenes control screen.

Ways it might have occurred:
Midi control can change scenes if enabled.
User defined keys can.
If the iPad wasn't locked water/dirt could have changed scenes with pressure from the cover.
Outside user (like Scott said) could have assumed control of the mixer (again, like Scott said; unlikely [they would need to know wifi pw first].

You might reinitialize the internal memory (careful, one option erases everything); update to latest firmware, etc.

... re wifi passwords, there's one password that gets you into the WAPs of multiple consoles across 4 companies (ours included) here in the PNW. I can go to someone else's show, and if I see "CL5 Control" or whatever as a broadcasting WAP, probably get in to it. :-D

The good thing is, tho, that you don't have to remember multiple passwords, especially if you're working across companies, as several people do. [Same reason for common length-color-coding.]

Yikes, glad I've set all my WAPs to hidden networks  :o

That may stop the casual passerby.  But add less then a minutes worth of discovery for someone actually scanning for SSIDs

If someone has previously connected to your hidden network, it is likely no longer hidden to them. It will show up on their device.
