Buttons not working - Matrix channel

9 posts in this topic

So it wouldn't be a change of season without Mongrol breaking something. I got sick of the Orange case and its sneaky ways of making me always write circus music and I replaced my SEQv4 into a black case. On the way I've broken all the buttons on M3. What's the traditional way of troubleshooting a matrix channel?

(I'm specifically asking instead of working it out myself to get it recording on the forum for others.)

  • So far I've identified the buttons not working.
  • Looking in the MBSEQ_HW.v4 file I can see the following
#            	 	SR  Pin
BUTTON_STOP   		M3   5
BUTTON_REW    		M3   4
BUTTON_PAR_LAYER_C 	M3   6
BUTTON_GP11  		M3   0
BUTTON_GP12  		M3   1
BUTTON_TRACK_SEL    M3   3
BUTTON_UTILITY  	M3   2

Which are exactly my broken buttons.

What next?

If it's a row of the matrix, I think the problem is on the sink side. Are LEDs out in the trig buttons, pause and GP 13/14?

Nope. All those LED's are working. LED's on GP11/12 are broken (along with the buttons).

Whoops, wrong row.

LEDs out on GP11/12,  rewind and stepview?

 

It points to a bad 595 chip (U7) or broken connection somewhere. You might even find reseating the IC helps.

Replaced U7. No luck. Is there a wiring schematic somewhere other than the Wilba.pdf thats in the shape of the CS?

Fixed. Cable wasn't in right. Thanks Lat.

Maybe an addendum; what was the issue? Still a faulty 595 and a loose cable? Or was the original okay? If anything wasn't plugged in properly I'd think nothing would be working.

Cable wasn't fully seated into the socket underneath the CS. While it looked like it was in, it was at  very slight angle meaning that channel wasn't made.
