Akai Deep Impact Service Manual ??

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by funkydanbass, Apr 27, 2010.

  1. Hi Folks,

    My Akai Deep Impact recently stopped working...

    Clean signal gets through when bypassed, but when an effect is engaged either no signal or a very low distorted signal comes through. The input level lights on the top rght of the pedal remain lit in any position...

    I understand it's unlikely that I'll be able to get it fixed, but I want to try, (because I love the pedal and spent a small fortune buying it).

    Does anyone have a copy of the service manual? The local Akai distributor wants $25 for an e-copy!

    Atypical, not a typical...
    I would pitch in for that...

    Let me know. Maybe we can do a group buy on this. 25 people post up $1...
  3. I'd throw in a couple of $$

    Did you had luck finding the service manual?

  6. No luck so far, and I'm kind of opposed to the idea of anyone spending $25 for a PDF!

    Just called...."expected waiting time in queue is...19 minutes"
    I wait the 19 minutes or so, it rings again...same message starts "expected waiting time in queue is...38 minutes"
    hang up.
    I'll try to get ahold of somebody by the end of today.

    So apparently Akai "does not have the service manuals & can't give them out", so unfortunately you have to go through an authorized repair center/vendor...sorry man. They wouldn't even give me one, being a vendor...Wish I had better news for you :(

  12. Ok, I've managed to get my hands on a service manual free of charge.
    PM me your email address if you want PDF copy...
  13. Nice work :)
  14. Had a lot of requests for this service manual since this thread so here it is for anyone that wants it!
