Proteus 1 orchestral midi port failed!

Post by Petefitz19 » Mon Oct 15, 2018 7:37 am

Is there something I’m doing wrong here? I can’t get my proteus1 to read a midi in signal. For starters, when I plug the midi out from my controller to the midi in of the module, I get no midi signal indication from the module’s flashing led. Running the midi diagnostics test from the module, connecting one midi cable from the out to the in, I get a result of midi port failed. Do I need to replace the midi jack?

According to your findings, I would say that the midi in connector could be the culprit as it is most oftenly used and abused.
Inspect for broken solder joints under the pcb, and with a multimeter in continuity mode confirm that the pins can carry signals.
Other than that , I have seen a few times dead optocouplers causing this issue.
It is all about sharing...
