Zoom G7.1ut Issue. Please Help.

Post by jucanery » Mon Dec 05, 2016 11:18 am

Hi, I got a Zoom G7 a few weeks ago. The unit is great.

My problem is, sometimes when I turn it on all lights get lit and nothing happens. Like if it was some sort of safe mode.

I have to turn it off wait a few seconds, turn it on again and everything works well.

While it's on everything works fine, no shutdowns.

Anyone here have any idea of what might be?
Many thanks!

Cheers

Your description reads like an intermittent power connection. It could just be a loose wire or it may be that a part is working its way loose.

If the unit is under warranty, replace it. If the unit is out-of-warranty you can either take it to an electronic repair shop or take your chances and open it up yourself for a look-see.

Corrupted firmware maybe ? you could try re-flashing it.

That might be a problem then, as i only kept the files related to all Windows versions only. The G7.1ut is a bit old now and Zoom seems to still host most
of the files related to it, but I can't see any files related to firmware there. I'm quite sure Zoom hosted them in the past before revamping their website.

I suggest you email Zoom for this one. They should still have an archive of software for all of their legacy products. Its worth a shot.

I already emailed them. They said that they could do nothing since it's discontinued. They told me to go to a Zoom authorized repair shop which does not exist here. I installed the software but there's almost no options and it's really outdated. And they have no archive also.

Many thanks :)

Well I'll leave it to you. I just had a look in my HD and found firmware version 1.06 for the G7.1UT. If you can
get connected to a windows computer temporarily, I'm happy to send it to you. There's a good chance it may fix
it, but no promises. You should at-least refer to the manual for a global reset. Good luck.
