SOS SOS Live/Park/Bling Problems

Left Theatre 3 hours ago and designer was setting up some cues. Just called me to say some very weird things are happening. Apparently (I hope I get this right - I can't check until the morning) The PARK and BLIND lights keep coming on. Yet he claims he can see changes to lights on the stage (in Blind?) but he can't save cues. If he presses the LIVE button though he can't see lights change but he can save cues. I'm not that experienced  that I can remotely fix stuff like this so he switched off and I will go in.  its that PARK and BLIND that he keeps getting in the way. What, how the PARK button lights up is totally foreign to me. Any ideas on where to start with the in the morning would be appreciated.

  • The thing that might explain getting in blind and parking things that you don’t want, is a park button that is stuck. If you double tap park you end up in blind. Maybe you should check that key in the hardware test.

  • Ouch! After my 1st post a week back I was afraid to mention that while punching in stuff I (very luckily) caught that dreaded word Park in the CL. I swear I didn't go anywhere near it. Even then I may have thought a stuck button was far fetched but within a month or so of our new board arriving the GO button started to seriously play up to the point we had to send the unit back. Then, some months after that the same button went awol again! This time ETC Kindly sent me the appropriate PCB and Buttons to fix myself rather then keep packing and shipping big boxes. Sooooooo! next time in I will run diagnostics. Thanks very much for the input - though I was gping nuts. Thank you.
