Help with a Six Trak

Post by Jacob Hunt » Wed Mar 09, 2011 10:59 pm

I recently bought a Sequential Circuits Six Trak, and it's having some problems. When powered on, the lights light up in a random pattern that changes every time, none of the buttons respond, and it makes no noise. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to our crazy world!

First things:
1) Check all PS voltages
2) Check for loose connectors
3) use a 'scope or logic probe on the Z-80. Early runs had a high failure rate.
