DSP7000 Error

April 29, 2019 - 08:32 am

I just bought a used DSP7000. Sometimes the machine seems to hang and ask me to turn it off. A message like HC error I think.
Is this a known problem and can it come?
Thank you

It means that there is a communication failure between the main processor and the dsp. It can mean a hardware problem or a renegade preset.

It can also be caused by an erratic external clock.

If it happens only on certain presets, the moral is clear.

If it happens all the time, on internal clock,  it probably needs fixing.

I only use it with the analog inputs and the clock is on 48kHz internal.
The problem occurs when I load a factory program but not systematically. In addition, once the device is turned back on, these programs load correctly.
