    I am new to the forum and don't know how to start a new thread. But my DM24 has started crazy fader movement during fader calibration, and crashing there... the rest of the desk seems unaffected, just the faders, just the usual on screen messages, 'starting fader calibration please do not touch the faders' This stays on screen and the faders miove up and down. I tried the reinitialise thing, 2ndfunct, HIGH and - library key. This doe snothing to assist in resolution of this problem.

    Any ideas would be appreciated. Cheers

    What do you mean by crashing? I think moving up and down faders during startup is absolutely normal. Need to be calibrated at startup so it is important not to touch them during that process. Is everything ok after calibrating procedure?

    My DM24 frequently crashed during boot up. Exactly the same problem like described here.
    You have to replace electrolytic caps in the switching power supply. This cures the problem. Use Panasonic FM capacitors.
