    what exactly is wrong with it?

    soundslive can handle repairs i think - or will pass you on to someone local

    i had a dead amp a while ago and they past me a number (i just replaced the amp though so didnt use it)

    is it a dead cone or have you blown something?

    cheers man!

    basically when i switch them on the blue light on the top flashes and you can hear a little popping noise coming from the speaker. I have read an article on the net which says its a design fault, one of the components inside is too close to a part of the speaker which gets really hot and causes the fault. All you need to do is replace the component and then reposition it away from its original point. I bought a soldering kit with full intentions of sorting it out but ive decided to bottle it and get saomeone else to do it. how do i get in touch with these geezers?? cheers for helping mate

    did they say what components to replace and with what? i'd say do it yourself, the component might only be a few pennies - repairs might cost a lot more unless u can tell the people what part to replace and where.

    i would just get a look yourself mate - if you're planning on spending money on repairs, its going to be no difference in price of if you've fucked the job up or the job that needed doing in the first place

    changin caps etc is a piece of piss, the reason i asked at soundslive about my amp was cos i was trying to find a cheaper source for the caps - and hence just changed the amp as it worked out better for me

    if you find out the part that's causing the problem, could you not just bend it out of the way of whatever is omitting the heat and try it out yourself - it might just be all it needs instead of getting the solder out

    numark are notorious at heat problems lol the ttx owners had a right mare as well

    i had an akai mpk49 for a couple of days and when i contacted customer support, it was alesis who replied (email responder) - then called me from the states(!) after i had took the unit back, so it might not be numark you talk to

    0191 203 3422 (local number) karl or thomas in the keyboard dept might be able to help or if not, the lads up in the p.a rooms should know something if you get stuck :)
