Fireface 400 stor issue. Siffrorna ovanför reglarna säger "∞"

Recommended Posts

Hej. Klistrar in det jag skrev på RME-forum då jag inte orkar översätta hela texten till engelska:

The FF400 is a really great piece of equiepment. Never failed me. Until now.

Since a couple of weeks something weird began occuring. First now and then, now every time. When I boot the card, all the numbers above the meters read "∞". I get no in-signal from plugged in instruments and no out-signal to speakers or whatsoever. And YES my cables are plugged in, everything turned on. After a while (this "while" seems to be random) the "∞" disappears and numbers begin showing again and the card seems to work. Except for some weird (seemingly silent) signal that seems to be coming into channel 3-8, even when I have nothing plugged in. If I push a meter above 0dB (sometimes I do this with the phones-channel, for obvious reasons) the overall sound begins to crackle, the performance becomes sluggish and weird noises sort of leaks out through channels where it is'nt even routed (yes, I know all about the matrix and routing possibilites). When I boot the card it It looks like this:


This is extremely unreliable, especially since I use the FF400 in live performances and one day perhaps the card won't start at all. I have both the latest firmware and drivers. Could it be my fw-chipset in my computer that's singing on it's last verses?

Thanks for your time reading and hopefully replying.

Tack, jag vet efter 6 års användande hur mitt ljudkort funkar... Som du ser är in-kanal 3-4 uppdragna en bit och när screenshoten togs skickade jag in signal på de två kanalerna. Inget kommer vare sig in eller ut. Är du Fireface-användare själv?

Rising from the dead! Det visade sig vara strömkabeln det var fel på. Skaffade mig nämligen samma kort begagnat och testade runt med olika kablar i de olika korten och kom fram till att det är mitt gamla "trafo" (strömkabeln) som orsakar felet. 🙂
