Of course my first post is a problem.
Of three XTI 1000 I have, one has inexplicably (to me) has lost the input on channel two.
"Phantom" (as in non-existent - false) signal on channel 2 front panel, and on Band Manager (BM) software. (sometimes up to "yellow" on input meter"
"Phantom" signal produces no output - no hiss, no buzz - nothing.
Channel will pass pink noise generated by BM
Will not produce audio from the input jack.
Open, and remove and reseat ribbon connector to mainboard
Phantom signal went away - no more on meter, no more on BM.
Channel will still not pass audio from input jacks - does not matter if DSP is off or preset or custom.
It was working properly in June - the last time it was out.
What does work:
Channel will produce pink noise from BM
When in Link Y mode (I think I have the right terminology) linked input1 internally to input 2, and two-channel output, channel will pass audio and pink noise.
I checked firmware version 6 months ago - all 3 current/same
I also checked all serial numbers against Crown Website list, and all the numbers were higher, out of range of the 2006 ribbon issue.
Thanks in advance,
