Doctor doctor my APC40 is dying?!

Post by aioffermann » Sun Jan 06, 2013 3:04 am

It always ran just fine until about two weeks ago or so. Now it'll be running all good when I boot up a session, and then just randomly stop working.

Sometimes the red disappears sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes all functionality is lost sometimes it's only a portion.

What can I do to try to remedy this? Any ideas?

It's not a shotty USB cable either because I tried multiple alternatives that all resulted in the same thing.

If it is under warranty. Ring Akai.

Otherwise, crack that sucker open and check it out for dirty connections and give it a clean.

I have posted a clear description of a similar problem on the akai pro community forum, and respons came i had to call akai support. After that call i was suggested to bring my apc back to my local dealer.. My apc is now sent to akai to investigate further, as it is still under warranty..
