Question about Yamaha DTXtreme III Drum Trigger Module

Open Question

I have a Yamaha DTXtreme IIs that has recently started to show random ASCII text on the display. The module triggers as it has, but I can't make any changes to anything because of the display issue.

I can't do anything that requires using the display. This includes factory reset, trigger settings, voice settings... Nothing. The only things that I can control are anything which uses a manual adjustment such as the volume sliders.

SOURCE: wireless flash trigger for vivitar 283

I purchased the Wein Slave Foot. The metal foot is designed to repair the plastic foot that, apparently, is prone to breakage. Mine is not broken, but I purchased the Slave Foot because the blurb stated that it would make my unit serve as a remote slave.

The setup works fine with my Sony A700 using either the built-in flash or in combination with my proprietary external Sony flash.

I have just purchased another used 283 and will be ordering the Wein Slave Foot from B&H in the morning.

SOURCE: Mic Volume Auto Sets Too Low

Delete the registry files for the devices and then uninstall the driver from device manager and then uninstall the software.

That worked for me.

SOURCE: My Bass Drum trigger just stopped working .

this is an easy problem to fix. The piezo piece on the inside of your bass drum trigger uses a double sided tape that is fixed to a metal disc. the piezo trigger just fell off. mine did the same thing. I actually glued mine with epoxy and have not looked back.

SOURCE: reset sciphone i68 to factory settings, now it won't do anything

I also have the same problem. I took the battery out and put it back again. I could unlock the phone. But everything in the phone is messed up. The "setting" icon is for radio, the "radio" icon is for "setting", etc.

It turns on but there is nothing showing on the screen.

There is a contrast control that will totally blank the display. Read your users manual page 25. Adjust the control as needed for visibility.

When hitting one drum, other drums are triggered... how do I fix that??

Usually there is a sensitivity parameter. Reduce the trigger sensitivity in the module. Refger to your user manual under "sensitivity".

I'm trying to use the pads of my Yamaha DTXplorer drum kit as triggers for the sounds stored on my Alesis SR-18 drum machine. I have seen that Alesis markets a trigger module of their own which they...

you need to determine what midi note the DTXplorer is using for the snare, kick and 3rd tom, and set the SR-18 accordingly, or vica-versa. the midi notes for each instrument has to be the same.

if you cannot change the midi note in either unit to make them correspond, you can download a "midi mapper" program (i think e-drum might be one), there is freeware available if you search CNet. with a midi mapper program, you would have to get a midi/usb adapter for your computer and rouite the midi signal through a computer. midi mapping software allows you to change the midi note, when the hardware itself is incapable of doing so.

Hi my name is Susanna and I own a Yamaha DTXtreme iis and whenever I turn the power on the screen shows this message: WARNING:DATA INITIALISING PLEASE PRESS ENTER. Then all my memory of the user programmes...

Probably the battery replacement was NOT done correctly or there is a problem with the battery voltage getting to the memory.
The original message was probably the result of the unit detecting the data was corrupted due to the backup battery not maintaining the memory.

The CORRECT Lithium cell for this unit is a CR2450

This is NOT a common available cell and LIKELY the person installed a readily available one which is not working.

Here is link to a supplier:

This cell is thicker than the commonly available cells and if the readily available was installed, it would not make contact. Open the unit and check the cell in the holder at BT1 on the board.

Here is service manual which has disassembly instructions.

Yamaha DTXtreme IIS Drum Moduel repair

Listen to the output with headphones to check for noise.

OFTEN the output of a drum machine is CORRUPTED by an inadequate sound system. The waveforms generated by a drum machine tax the sound systems. A bass drum output can drive the speaker cone such that it goes beyond the linear range that the speaker and amplifier can handle and this appears as "noise". The noise may sound like a buzz or totally break up.

Turn the volume down and see if EXACTLY the same noise appears at low levels. If not, then saturation of the amp and speaker is likely. Continued use while it is doing that will often destroy the speaker.

Yamaha clavinova CLP200 the amp has lost power

I might suspect that the volume control itself may have a break in the resistance element by your description. There can be many causes however including LOOSE CABLES. IF the unit has been moved recently, then a loose cable MIGHT be the cause. In any case, servicing iis required. If you are not familiar with electronic repair you will need to find an experienced repairman.
