Hi this is my first post here so I will add a bit of introduction.
I've been using a used 2400 since about 2016. Everything functions except the transport controls which gave up some time ago.
Since then I bought a "for parts/repair" unit that all the major functions worked on but had lots of little odd bits that were defective. Got it for a reasonable price.
Then another machine that said it was "working"...but turned out that NONE of the major functions worked on, but all the little odd bits did. I got a 25% discount from the seller after the fact, but still ended up paying more than the first.
So now about TEST MODE:
I replaced both drives in the newest unit & was about to find out how it was working when I discovered "TEST MODE" on YouTube. There are scant videos, but one showed how to get into it, so I tried it.
Most of the functions I was able to figure out how to do, except "Analog test", one of the ones I needed most since the I/O board doesn't seem to work.
Anyway, my eyesight is poor & it got very tedious trying to share the one VGA monitor so I was using the LCD. I wanted to get out of TEST MODE & wasn't sure how to do it. (Since then I saw one video where a guy just shut it off when done).
So I got onto the wrong page by accident & somehow began a function called "Error Terminate (Please wait...)".
It's been about 18 hrs. now it's still going. I am reluctant to shut it down as I am not sure what it is trying to accomplish. If it's another name for "scan disc" or some such, I don't mind waiting for it to complete...but there really isn't any info about TEST MODE nor ERROR Terminate that I can find. I am not sure how these YTers discovered, but it seems to be well-guarded secret among Roland technicians that no one is supposed to know about.
Any one know what's happening?
