If it's been
working in NY for some time, we can probably rule out the old 'crystal tolerance
timing' problem. It's most likely to be faulty or dirty RAM SIMMs. Carefully
remove each one in turn and clean the connector edges with either a fibreglass pencil,
(used by draughtsman), or a standard rubber pencil
I've also had
the same problem with the EPROMS gradually working their way out of their
sockets. If the RAM cleaning doesn't work, I'd remove each socket mounted chip
in turn and re-seat them.
Parameters while booting is the magic reset, but I think Claude has already
mentioned this. Your continuous Loop 3 problem however, is very unlikely to be
cured with a re-set.
If all this
fails, threaten it with severe physical damage; it probably still won't boot but you'll feel
Good luck, let
us know what happens,

Can anyone help? I have an extremely important solo show at the
Knitting Factory tonight in New York. I've just gotten up -- it's 7 AM
-- and my EDP is not working. When I turn it on, all that happens is
"Loop 3" flashes over and over.
Is there any way to reset
Also, -- and this is asking a lot -- is there anyne in NYC with an EDP
who would lend it or rent it to me for one night?
Thanks . .
