HELP!! alesis speaker won't turn on!

Post by KyleHale » Mon Mar 26, 2007 1:05 pm

Ive had this problem for quite sometime, where I will turn off my speaker and when I tried to turn it back on, the blue light would flicker and the speaker wont work. These are the alesis active mk2s. Sometimes it will turn on, other times it wont until a few times later.

Are they plugged into a socket with anything else in your audio chain? Have you tried plugging them into a different outlet?

Could it be a bad/faulty/dying powersupply? That might lead to sporadic outages.

Maybe it is something as silly as the on/off switch going bad or making poor contact. Does anything there seem strange or feel weird?

Call up Alesis. Their tech support is very friendly. It might still be under warranty.

BTW, I've owned a pair of MkIIs for a few years and always hated them. Then one day I actually read the manual (wtf?!) and learned you can put them on their side if you have a small room, like mine.

Lo and behold, it was a like a brand new set of speakers! The damn things sound AWESOME now! Worth a shot if you haven't tried it.

just called tech support and they told me to try turning off the monitor and unplugging the power cable for 30 minutes, then turning it back on. Going to try this and i will post whether or not it works.

I've been using a pair of them for four years. They've been in three different rooms for mixing and several other rooms for tracking (remote). I always experiment between standing tall and laying down depending on the room and there is always a noticable difference when one way works better than the other. Right now they are standing tall and sound terrific!
