Last night I had my first ever problem trying to get my H8000 to startup ! I bought my H8000 1n 2004 here in Germany. My version is 5.5 having installed it when it came out . Well, i hadnt used it for about 2 months while waiting for my new poweramp (mesa roadking2 lineout eventide h8000 mesa boogie 290 poweramp) and I got the following startup message "main memory unprogrammed" push select………..then i waited 8 hours as it went through the tests……i finally turned it off and on a couple times and still it wanted to go through the tests. Thinking maybe it might be the battery although i knew that the battery only supplies my stored presets , i opened the unit up changed the battery and applied pressure to the u106 processor and anything else. Well, for some reason after that it did start up normally.
Question, I am affraid that this might happen again………could you please tell me what is going on and how to fix this ????
happy h8000 owner
