Alesis ION not powering on?

Post by Jaxamillian » Fri Apr 29, 2011 11:57 pm

I had been playing my ion, and left it on while I got up and did something. When I came back I noticed it was off. Not when I switch the power on, nothing happens- their is a tiny little sqeauking, almost mouse like sound when I try to turn it on, like it is trying to do something, but something is not quite right.

Anyone experience this?

Ideas?

Yes it is plugged in.

First guess from afar: blown a regulator.

If you are familiar with trouble-shooting electronics, measure the voltages at the 5 regulators: +12. -12.+5.+3.5 and +2.5.

If you're not, take it to a tech/shop.
