  • PM-30 monitor quit working - where to take it?

    My monitor just quit working! It's about 7 months old and still under warranty. Just won't turn on. And, it was working the last time I used it. Is there something simple it might be? Is there a fuse somewhere I could check. I didn't see one.

    I am going to take to Sam's (where I bought it). Are they going to have to send it to Roland?

    Thanks,
    Jim

      OK, thanks. I am going to pull the back cover off and if I don't see something really obvious, I'll take it in.

      Anybody know if there is a fuse in there and/or if it's easy to replace?

      Thanks,
      Jim

            Hi,

            looking into its manual ( http://roland.com/support/article/?q...-30&id=1811045 ) it says on p. 10:

            This unit is equipped with a protection circuit. A brief interval
            (a few seconds) after power up is required before the unit will
            operate normally. (...).

            * If you need to turn off the power completely, first turn off the
            POWER switch, then unplug the power cord from the power
            outlet. Refer to “Power Supply” (p. 5).

            * To prevent malfunction and/or damage to speakers or other
            devices, always turn down the volume, and turn off the power
            on all devices before making any connections.

            Depending on your electrical installation may be it's also an attempt to switch to a completely different building and try it there - you never know ...


            So the answer to your question is "wait".

            BTW: can you verify that the PM30 is not operating? Perhaps some other device no longer provides output? Just to make sure ..
