Strand LBX Problem
« on: September 12, 2005, 04:23:18 am »

Hello;

Troubleshooting a local LBX.
Functioning perfectly with the following three problems:
- Initially the clock stopped.
- Next the clock display vanished.
- Next, the "Memory Locked" indication no longer appears.
The above occurred over the course of approximately two weeks during which time the console was rarely, practically never, without line power.

Resetting the clock has had no effect.
When the memory is unlocked, the "Cues Remaining" display appears but when the memory is relocked the "Memory Locked" indicator no longer shows up.

Have checked the battery, with power removed from the console, and the battery meters at 0.2 volts higher than it's labelled voltage.
Have performed the internal reset with no improvement.
Have performed the internal reset with power disconnected from the keypad module, still no improvement.

Next step will be reloading the software.

Has anyone seen this?
Better yet, can anyone who's seen this reveal their remedy?
Otherwise the board is exhibiting no problems; it's retaining cues, normal and inhibitive sub data, patching info; in short, it's working flawlessly.

Toodleoo!

I've worked with several strands never with that specific problem. However, with age, they do seem to fall apart. The one's i've worked with all experienced the same problems as they got older, mostly just broken power switch and master slider. Having never encountered this, my only thoughts are that there's a problem with the internal battery or something. Reloading the software is the best bet, then of course, servicing.

Thanks Jack!

Thirty-nine "views" and, finally, one reply.
Maybe there's still hope for my 'Marquee' post.

I have had the "pleasure" of repairing quite a few of the strand consoles in my years.  My first thought would be to upgrade the software.  Most of the time this will fix those display issues.  I remember there being a clock related problem with the software.
