DO NOT use universal adapters to run these devices. Accidents are too easy and often the universal devices do no have adequate filtering. You are off on the wrong foot to start with as this unit does NOT have a polarity since it REQUIRES an AC adpter, not a DC one. What you have WILL NOT WORK. If you have connected it, it should NOT have caused damage, you just won't get any audio out, even if the unit lights up on one polarity. The unit generates both polarities inside using the AC input.

Here is an example of correct adapter: http://lcdpayless.com/productpage.php?productId=5793

Lexicon mx 200 preset knob frozen


If unt was dropped, look for broken PC board in the vicinity of the rotary encoder. Also look at solder connections to make sure they are sound. A little contact cleaner applied to encoder through an opening so the spray gets inside will help clean contacts. If the knob itself is hard to turn, the shaft is likely bent, and there may be damage to the encoder itself.

Bought from usa to australia changed to recomended fuse, fuse blows as soon as turned on the unit was brand new any ideas ?


hi,
You have to check the working voltage of the adapter of you device. If it purchased from US then it will be 110V. I think the Line voltage in Australia is 220V.Also You have to check is there is any input voltage selector in the in its adaptor . If it there you have to change it to 220V. If there is no such selector then you have to buy a 220v to 110v converter .Then connect the out put of that converter to to your device. You can by this converter at any electronic spare part shope near to you. Or you have to by a new 9V 1.3Amps AC adaptor. When you going to by the converter or a new adaptor take the device. If so they will explain you how to connect the converter or adaptor . By changing a fuse you can't change the operating voltage. If The adapter is designed to use in 110V then the fuse will blow. If you change the fuse and make more experiment with it it will make the full system useless.
ok

The unit itself is generating too much noise(hiss). some effects are noisier than others but overall noise level is unacceptable. all the product reviews say how quiet this unit is. tried changing signal...


Check that: You are using BALANCED interconnection lines (TRS or XLR) everywhere. Low quality cables can cause or let in noise and hiss.

Check that ALL, and I mean ALL interconnected equipment is powered from the SAME receptacle or power conditioner.

Check that you are not using a noisy source or recording system like the internal audio of a PC for instance.

Short the inputs to ground and see if the output noise goes away. Some effects are noisy because the inut signal after effects gets added back into the output.

You haven't described your setup and without that information there is not much more I can add. Ferreting out noise is one of my specialties. In general your input level should NOT be too small as this leads to less signal to noise ratio due to digitizing noise. Look at the Lexicon specs to find what the levels should be. Without the description of your setup I can add no more...

Hi ihve soundcraft efx12 & the problem is in the effect, it hanges if i use the program selector, all the leds related to lexicon effects lit up.ithink the problem is in the the lexicon card. please...


If the LED's are level indicators, you are probably saturating the input of the effect and may cause it to hang. Effects use delay and feedback and can cause numerical overflow and the system to basically crash. I would first call the Lexicon support and ask them about this problem... I did have to return one Lexicon product myself for service under warranty.

Whats the polarity of lexicon ionix u22 audio adaptor? should i set plus or minus polarity on the adcd transformer/adaptor? thankx


Easy answer: You DON'T set the polarity because this particular device takes a 9 VAC at 2.1 amp adapter. (Not a DC one like so called universal ones)
It sounds like you have one of those universal adapters which probably would not deliver the 2.1 amps required even if the lexicon took DC. Note that stuff might light up, but the unit will not work using a DC adapter..

You had better get an official power supply for this unit as what you have will NOT work, period!

I did a quick search to try and find a link to a supplier, but they are RARE !!! Every one I found would require you changing the plug to match the Lexicon.

You should just order the correct one from Lexicon.

Hi, I bought a Lexicon Alpha in order to use with Apple Mac (Logic). Now, my microphone is a dynamic microphone so it does not need any phantom power. When I connect the usb cable, the blue light comes...


I suspect the problem is with the software setup in your PC. Verify all the options and also verify that the AUDIO system is assigned as stereo and assigned to the Lexicon for both in and out... Also check any "PAN" control settings. There is a possibilty that the Alpha has a dead channel...

Try putting a stereo signal into the 1/4 inch jacks and see if both record... if NOT then take it for repair under warranty... I had a Lexicon Omega that had a problem myself... warranty repair...
