Akai ME30pii input dead

Post by welhamc » Sat Feb 08, 2020 10:49 am

Hi muff, wondering if anyone can help me

One of the inputs on my Akai ME30pii midi patchbay doesn't seem to be working recently

Its not a connector issue as I have opened up the unit and continuity tested the inputs. There does seem to be quite a suspect burnt-out electronics smell though. I have inspected all the components on the boards however but cannot find an obvious cause. none of the elec caps seem to have leaked

Does anyone have any clue where to start? Is it perhaps the battery that needs replacing? it is measuring 0.3v but unsure if this would affect input, seems to be more for storing configs on start up
