xd3 unstable, AJ please help - 06/08/03 11:31 AM

my xd3 crashes with display flashing off and on as it trys to restart. I have to power off and then it works ok. This happens sporadically and is not linked to any song or proceedure. I love to use this thing live because sequences sound great, but what an embarrassment when it crashes in the middle of a song. It happened twice last night.
I can't use this in a live situation because of this and i'm very fustrated. When this happens, I have to re-configure my settings. ex. midi routing and mute channels in gm (try that when you have 100+ people on the dance floor wating for you.)

I also have a problem with user patterns erasing when trying to record part in another patch. by this I mean all my user bank patterns are gone and I have to re-load them. I mad because unless you remember which banks your patterns were before erasure, you're screwed. I had to re-do midi songs linked to these user patterns using drum mix.

You might have to take your XD3 to a dealer (so you are still covered by warantee) for the adjustment I would have told you to make requires you open the keyboard and adjust a variable resistor (on the Power board) to ensure that power from output board to mother board = 5.1V and not less (as could be the case with your board)!!

I should of posted this earlier, but thanks for your help. I went out and bought a multimeter and checked the voltage to the main board and you were right it was below 5.1 v. I adjusted and the machine works great, no crashes ever since and I'm a happy camper. Thanks for your help!!!
