Lexicon 224 remote cable
« on: April 09, 2009, 03:55:34 PM »

I need to find information on the DB25 cable that connects the Lexicon 224 to the remote. A pinout diagram would be perfect.
Any information would be helpful.

Thanks.

The DB25 from the original 224 (Pre Larc),

Its pin for pin. You can use ribbon cable if it is shielded.

I have a long unused 224 (first version, with DB25) that has a non-responsive remote.

I didn't have a cable with this unit, so took the known good one from my "first" 224, a unit that works perfectly.

Even with that cable, the "unused" remote will not respond.  The main unit powers up, and seems normal (haven't been able to try to listen to it yet).

Anything jump out as obvious problem?

Might the "unused"  unit be usable as 'default reverb,' even without remote?

Does anyone know of somewhere I can send one of these to get repaired?

Thanks.

The cable or the 224?

The cable? -yes.

The 224? -no. -Not since Jim Fabiano stopped.

I have the feeling that I have more experience in my little finger than you do in your whole body about audio electronics..

Yes, I think he meant the master unit...cable is no problem.

This is an extra 224 that I have here, and was trying to get it working for Clifford's studio.

I have a working 224, 224XL, and 200.

Tried my known-working cable and remote with this unit, and still no joy in remoteville.

Will do some testing to see it it spits out a "default setting" reverberation, even without the remote working...

Open it up (with the power off) and look for corrosion inside.. -particularly towards the rear/connectors on the uppermost card.

-IIRC they may have been some backup-battery-related corrosion issues, although it's been a LONG time since I ever had to look inside 'one o'dem dere yuunits' (In my best "Fim Fabiaaaaaaaaaaano" 'Baaastan' accent!)

I think that might be the guy who resurrected my friends PrimeTime 93 after Fabiano passed on the repair job. I would like to email him about fixing my PrimeTime II.  Can you post or message me that info?  Thanks.
