when i got up today i startet my alpha link sx and nothing happened. No LED nothing?!?
As im not a Tech-head i maybe must say i had a little problem yesterday with my computer, after changing the power unit it turned out mainboard battery was the problem. When i removed it computer worked and i was able to work with the Alpha link sx. (Before i did this the computer started and shut down 1 sec later and continued like that.) i then put the battery again in the MB and it worked. the only thing was time and date was reset. but finally i realized that it also asks for ethernet drivers which cant be found on the system...i installed those drivers finally.
now im a little confused now. Dunno what to do. My Alpha Link is just dead it seems right now...
Anyone ever had such a problem or heard or knows what the hell is goin on? As i said, i worked in the studio yesterday, everything worked...
thanks for your answer. Thats the first thing i did and it didnt change anything. I just dont understand this. My Alpha Link is half a year old and it was solid as hell all the time. I have only connected a dsub breakout analog for my preamp/synth. Im monitoring via AES to a Benchmark DAC1 to my PMC's.
I worked with the system yesterday, today morning alpha link is dead. I just dont understand this. I've wrote to SSL support and im waiting to see.
I had the same problem with one of my alpha link ax's
when I first purchased them in 2008.
my findings led me to the front panel
power switch(rocker type switch).
the internals of the switch were not
contacting so I just "rocked" the switch
up & down slowly ... until the unit
turned on.. left both alpha link's on
and never touched the power switch since
that occurrence ...
all of my gear are connected to power strips.
everything in my studio is turned on and off in series.
try this before sending back to ssl...
hope this helps...
exact same problem here today
fuse ok, reseated molex connectors, no joy....
already logged a ticket with SSL support, but if there are any more smart suggestions that save the unit being out for repair for a couple of week, would really appreciate them.
Looking at the SSL Q+A's for the Alphalink i see they dont repair these units, they only *replace* them if they develop a fault.
For me, with 2 of these units that worries me a bit because i guess they charge a lot to "replace" them.... i wonder why they dont offer a repair service, it seems a little unfair to the customer to expect them to pay for a "replacement"
