Thanks for the link to the switch, I just ordered.
I bought the ER-101/102 used on Reverb about a month ago and it arrived about 3 weeks ago. The original owner had it updated to the latest firmware, didn’t ship the 102 with a memory card, and had replaced the faceplate on the 101 previously, and included the other faceplate with it. When I first connected everything the 101 and 102 didn’t work together due to there being no memory card. I ordered one, disconnected them and used the 101 on its own with no problem for several days. I then got the memory card, put it in the 102 and used them both together for a while with no issues. Several days ago, I received the new panel in the mail.
I removed the 102 first and attached it to the new combined panel without issue. When I removed the panel from the 101, the switch was really stuck. I tried to be as careful as possible, but everything got sort of stuck and I honestly think that the ER-101 may have been dropped by the previous owner and the switch was turned slightly off center, which forced the issue of it popping apart when I was trying to remove it all.
When it flew apart, I thought “Oh my god I broke it” but I plugged everything in and it worked, stuck perpetually in Edit mode.
This was working fine for several days until today, when I was working on a track I’ve been playing around with and all of a sudden my Pamela’s New Workout that was serving as master clock to the ER-101 suddenly stopped and the tracks playing from the ER-101 stopped. I clicked around the PNW with nothing and then just turned off my rack and turned it back on. After turning it back on the ER-101 stopped at saying 14-bit on the screen and then just kept rebooting. I pulled out the card put it back in and it started working again. But now everytime I start it up it does the same thing, and I have to move the card switch on the 102 to REMOVE, Remove the card and wait a second for it to continue booting, then I can put the card back in, flip it up and load a sequence.
Could something on the card be messed up? I looked at the files on it but didn’t see anything corrupted.
Also of note, if I disconnect the 102 entirely from the 101, the 101 works fine on boot.
