TR-808 Sequencer issue


This is my first post on GS, although I've been lurking since my teenage.

My TR-808 is giving me a headache. After power it on, the sequencer isn't functional (the first step "1" is not blinking) and no sound is emitted, nor can the machine be used.

Sometimes, this only lasts a few minutes (5 or so) and these days it won't even work at all.

It doesn't matter which mode I'm in (write part 1 or 2, play, manual, track...).

When the sequencer works and the machine ends up working, everything else is fine and patterns are saved, instruments are fine, part a/b etc...

OP Patrick Dexter on a thread from 2012 seemed to described something very similar, and I've tried to contact them to no avail.

Has anyone ever experienced something similar with their 808? Any idea maybe?
