Major Bullfrog issues


Recommended Posts

First, I am located in Canada, which kinda sucks for support


Trying to add fixture profiles, but sometimes the disk says, no disk, sometimes it says no fixture files. Format disk on desk, computer won't read, format disk on computer, desk says no disk.

Figure this is a floppy drive issue, run out get a new (used) one, now no disk is seen at all, format will not work. Put old drive back in. BTW it is the Panasonic that was mentioned in other threads, that had issues.


New problem. Now lights on bump buttons on channels 85-96 are lit. Bring up channel 86 or 37 and multiple channels all over the board raise up. No other sliders on those channels make any changes. Tried playing with the dip switches inside, thinking maybe I bumped the ones on the pc board, but to no avail. Although when I leave dip switch 2 up, it functions as board 3 i.e. raises channel 25, same as 25 would.


I am off in 36 hours for a week of R & R with the family, and I have a big show the day after I get back, so this is a pretty big issue for me to get resolved. Any help, including a service manual, would be greatly appreciated. If I can can the board back to function normally, I can fudge my way through without having to use the fixtures.
