Harrison MR4 Console
« on: October 25, 2013, 09:37:07 am »

Hi I'm about to get started installing a Harrison MR4, but unfortunately the previous owner seems to have lost the manuals for it.

My tech and I obviously don't to power up the desk without the correct wiring information, so I was hoping someone might be able to help me with that information?

I've emailed Harrison but haven't had any reply as yet.

Really any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Harrison is best reached by phone. They have the manuals. Be prepared to pay about $300 for it.

Hi Jim, I've been in touch with Harrison and they say they can send me a new manual for US$600 + Shipping. They charge $125/hr for tech support so I understand that's where the cost comes from.

Thanks for your response. Hopefully someone out there will have a manual and be willing to share some information with me!

Inflation is a bitch when you have to pay someone $125 per hour to run a copy machine.

Surely is... but it definitely opens a market for someone out there with a MR4 manual to make a little cash from someone like me.  ;)

After receiving the manual, make sure after the first solder connection is made, to check and confirm everything is working for that particular connection.

I bought a MR-4 new from these idiots in the early 80's.
The manual showed the wiring diagrams for the console / internal patch bays.

We hired two TECHs to wire the console to everything in our room.
Took about three days.
When we went to test the connections, we found they did not work.
After some testing and a few days of calls to Harrison, they asked us what number manual did we have. Once we told them the revision of the manual, they said,
OH YEAH, that revision has incorrect wiring diagrams in it.

GO figure...

About a week of wasted time, and thousands of dollars later...we got it to work...

But then the real fun happened.......

I found this link where a guy has an 85? model, with extra owners manuals. Seems willing to barter/trade/ I hope this is okay amd gets what you need.
