Um, first post here, be gentle! And apologies if I have missed a topic in the same issue below - I have tried to search, but couldn’t find anything on exactly this issue.
A few months ago I bough a used MK1 MD on a whim since the price were very good. It seems to have lived a bit of a rough life, but worked fine initially, and is definitely one of the most fun drum machines I have ever used. Sound amazing in it’s own way too.
Lately, however, it has started to turn off and switch on again by itself when I’m using it. Sometimes it happens after long times use, sometime after 15 minutes. Yesterday it happend while I was recording and not touching the machine at all. There are non of the hangs in start-up, I have found other writing about, it just turns off and on again.
This is of course greatly unsettling, and I am curious as to if anyone knows whether this is a known problem with the older units? And whether it sounds like trouble with the power supply or the machine itself? (I’m probably also asking whether it is something fixable, or I should start the hunt for a more stable machine, because I really really love my MD…)
