While recording on my new DP32, I experienced a power outage. It wasn't a power surge, as none of my surge protected power strips tripped, but rather a GFI upstream from all the power strips did trip. It appeared to be just a simple outage with the power restoring immediately. After resetting the GFI and rebooting the unit, I could not re-load the song I'd been working on ... the screen read "File Error." Rebooting again didn't help, so I decided to abandon the recording and start over using a new SD card which I'd just "full" formatted. I was a couple of hours into it with several tracks successfully recorded when things went downhill incrementally and in a hurry. I noticed random blips/sounds of some of the instruments on the recorded tracks that I knew weren't supposed to be in the recording. Then, a piano track went crazy (didn't even sound like a piano but rather like random electronic noises) while other tracks played fine; then all of the tracks went hay-wire. After trying to record a digital sax part and stopping to listen to playback, I got another error message of "writing failure" (failed to record the sax). Eventually, none of the unit's buttons/functions responded, yet the haywire tracks kept playing, and I had no choice but to power off the unit while listening to the chaotic mess. The power outage may have caused two separate (perhaps related) problems: (1) File Error could be a full SD card (as I've read in this forum is a possibility, but if so, why would that happen only after the outage and not while I was able to record before it happened?); and (2) a problem with the unit itself not being able to record ("writing error") which seems to be directly related to the power interruption. I tend to believe that neither problem is caused by the SD card, since I was using a brand new one (and had successfully been recording on it) and instead think the unit is intolerate of a power outage (but why not? ... can you imagine a microwave or other appliance that is rendered inoperable just because the power goes off? ... that would be a fundamental product defect in my view). All guidance and suggestions are much appreciated. Thanks!!
