  • Overheating TD-10?

    Hi folks. I'm a complete novice in the V-Drums arena, so please bear with me if this has been addressed before: It seems that the top of my TD-10 becomes hot to the touch after a fairly short period of use. The heat is concentrated in the area of the LCD. Is this common to all TD-10's or does this sound like a problem? Any information will be greatly appreciated.

    I have played at length on 3 different TD-10's and none get "hot" to the touch. I would get this checked out immediately.

    Kit Pic 1 Kit Pic 2 Kit Pic 3... And FOR SALE I have: 3 PD-9's, MDS-10 purple rack w/cables/pad and cym mounts. See classified posts for details or PM me.

      Damn. I guess I'll have to take it somewhere to be fixed. Thanks for your reply.

        Try replacing the power cord first, standard 3 prong, available everywhere. Make sure you tell whomever you talk to what kind of unit you need it for. Always try the most simple, cheapest fix first, you may get lucky.

          my td-10 gets warm by the lcd display but certainly not "hot". How hot is hot?

            Could it be your display brightness setting?

              Hello again. The TD-10 gets hot to the point where I can actually smell the plastic case heating up while I play in a closed room, but not hot enough to burn you or anything. "Very warm" would probably be a better description. Does that seem normal? Again, I'm pretty new to this. I've yet to test the brightness setting or power cord hypotheses, but I will shortly. Thanks for the input, guys.
