Hello there,

I'm having a very hard time trying to find the bootloader for the A6.

My A6 is broken and the technician that does have it need the bootloader to fix it.

Thanks in advance for any help

G.

Hello,

Thanks for the tip concerning contacting Numark.

Unfortunately did that but no one replied...

And everything was tried from the service manual.

No it doesn't. it Uploads only the OS.
For shure exists more than one Bootloader such as 1.20.31 or 1.20.37

in this thread PICOTTILER says he got it:

that's great !
i also searched a bit, seems mostly the problems with booting are solved by looking over the cablesconnections. the worst problems where solved by replacement of the maincpuboard.
if the bootloader won't help maybe these suggestions might help ?
anyway, great job, let us know how things went from here please

Hey guys,

First I want to say a big thank you to everyone for
being so helpful !

This forum is really cool Smile

I will now try with the bootloader.

Concerning the part replacement (main board), i wish i could do it but mailed Alesis
about it and i have been told that there was no more spare boards at all left.

Otherwise this was my first option.

I will let you know if i get it sorted.
