Waldorf Blofeld Failure / Errors - HELP!!

(MODS - please feel free to move this if it is in the wrong section)

Hi All,

I turned on my Waldorf Blofeld Desktop Synth last night after not using it in about a month and it would not power on. It has not seen any cosmetic damage or been in a very humid, hot or cold environment.

Once you turn it on, the screen would flash bright white and go black and alternate between those two screens fairly quickly. I tried this a few times with different surge protectors in my home, but quickly realized it was not making a difference.

For all of those who have this make/model - is this a problem you've heard of before? I may need to update firmware, but it seems a bit more problematic than that.

I am about to email the good folks over at Waldorf, but was hoping somebody here may have a suggestion or fix. As always, thanks for any and all help!

I have the same problem here...

but flashes from black to white...

did you find answer to this problem lately ?

I e-mailed Waldorf but they gave no information about my problem, they just ask me to send them so they can detect the real problem...

it's quite of a rare problem i think
