is this for real? sounds like a very bad bug, huge. have we had any word from the maker on this situation of these many axe fx that are breaking down on this connection issue?
A bug is usually software, not a physical hardware thing.
Bugs refer to software problems in todays world. Some people would call this a design flaw. Others might call this a dfu error.
This is not a bug. It's user error/carelessness.
How is it a bug-like if you slam the LCD sceen with a hammer-I guess that's a bug also. Really?
Interestingly, the term 'bug' in computers came about due to a bug (a moth) blocking a relay on an early computer at Harvard. The term, along with glitch, was previously used in engineering to describe problems or mistakes in designs.A bug is usually software, not a physical hardware thing.
Operator error... would that also describe a certain gas engineer I was friends with who ran out of gas detection fluid and decided to use a match instead?My thumb fits in a light socket, but I make sure the correct connector is in the socket before I turn the switch because I'm not designed for the same voltage as a light bulb.
People are plugging the USB plug into the Ethernet socket by accident whilst the Axe Fx is powered on.im lost, why is this units usb frying? wtf! never heard of such a bad bug? Ive seen so many axe fx burning out on this and other threads, why? I heard it was user fault, so what are people doing wrong to make this happen? please enlighten me. i dont want it happening to me, strange
The circuit is isolated from the main components, so the unit will work fine. The Ethernet circuit is also separate to the MIDI circuit, so as you've found 7-pin control works just fine.Has anyone had this affect the rest of the unit's operation? This just happened to me. It also showed some back just behind the jack with the two diodes/capacitors done. The unit seems to be working fine, and able to control with 7 pin midi and phantom power. But I have a number of gigs coming up and want to make sure this doesn't affect other functions. I took out the fried ethernet jack. Also, to send it in, do you guys think in your experience sending in say ~jun10 to get back by jul 1 is possible in the US? I have a break then, but otherwise, gigs all summer. I could use the midi -- so long as rest of unit is safe. But want to be sure, and also it really bugs me!! :-x:nightmare:
