WSo this has started happening and seems to be getting worse.
I turn on MCX 8000 using the power switch at the back, no usb cables or memory sticks plugged in. The unit is totally stand-alone. Nothing other than a power cable is plugged into the 8000.
The unit seems to boot up as it normally does, but then I notice that the displays (both) are still showing the blue Denon logo although the switch above the faders are on Engine (standalone). Usually after boot up, the display shows usb1 & usb2.
I plug memory stick into usb1… Nothing. Eject it by pressing the button (which does seem to work as the led flashes & then stops), then plug the memory stick into usb2…Nothing. Then I try flipping the switches above Ch’s 1&2 between Pc, Engine & Line… Nothing.
Then I decide to see if the unit will work with Serato, I plug the usb cable into my mac & 8000, start up Serato (1.9.6) & wait…Nothing (display wise anyway). Serato detects the 8000 & the unit seems to function normally but the screens are still stuck on the blue Denon logo.
If I reboot the 8000, it starts & operates fine thereafter. I have also noticed that if I turn on the 8000, then switch off & restart it again, I don’t experience the usual right deck screen freeze that I normally do if I just boot up once & start using it.
It seems like my 8000 doesn’t boot up correctly on the first boot. I have become so used to the right hand display freezing ‘sooner or later’ that I’m actually getting used to it now!!
However the displays freezing at start up is a new issue that has only recently started happening (friday night was the first time, it happened again on Sat (twice) & Sunday (twice)) and is an issue that I just can’t ignore.
I’ll appreciate any of Denon’s staff to give some feedback on this please. Thanks in advance.
