Space won't power on

October 12, 2017 - 06:55 pm

Hey,

My space failed to power on at rehearsal the other day. No lights, nothing... tested it at home, same problem.

Took it to the store where I bought the unit, plugged in, and everything worked.... Got home, used it home and rehearsals, then today, two weeks later, all of a sudden, no more power whatsoever...

Anybody an idea what could be wrong?

Thanks!

This could be many things,

This could be many things, but my guess would be a power supply. Try wiggling all parts of the power supply lead, especially where it plugs in to the unit. Look for changes in the leds.

If that fails, it will have to come in, but may take a while to fix, since the problem is not frequent.

It's working again, but...

It's working again, unbelievable...

Last Monday it was working at rehearsal, last Thursday it was not working any more at rehearsal. I took it home and put it before the stove, heating the unit up a bit and tadaa, it's working again...

Could it have to do with moisture of something? At rehearsal, the temperatures aren't that low though and every other pedal or amp (and there are a lot, I assure you) all work like a charm...

Thx!

It's going to fail again.

It's going to fail again. Please see my last post.

Be sure to use the Eventide power supply - many others do not have the power.

Power supply

October 15, 2017 - 02:10 pm

Hey,

I'm using the stock power supply, but I'm gonna buy a new (spare) one from Thomann. They sell the Eventide power supply.

I'm going to take my chances for now though... We're recording with the band and I have to use it next week since it's an important part of my sound. If I bring it in now, no chance it'll be back before then...

Thx for the response!
