Question about Korg ESX1 Electribe SX production station (with )
My KORG ESX-1 stopped working. Although the knobs and functions seem to still be working, no sound comes out of it. Apparently all the presets were deleted (for whatever reason). I tried to rebbot the system (using the step-by-step instructions in the manual) but no good. I then purchased a SmartMedia/ XD car to try to reload the factory presets (from the KORG website), but it seems that it cannot be formatted (keep getting the message 'FORMAT ERROR'). As for now, I cannot reload the preset samples and loops (or do anything for that matter). Can anyone find a solution to this problem please? That'd be much appreciated. Cheers!

First thing would be to check the power supply voltages. It may be the disk drive is failing. Drives are inexpensive, might be worth a try with a new drive. Also check that cables to the drive have not been loosend by handling.

This is likely a power supply problem. It is important that all interconnected equipment be powered by the same receptacle OR source or isolation such as DI's be used for system safety.
