half a row of buttons on a 128 not working

  • so i did the usb power upgrade on my 128 myself, and i tried to be super careful and strictly follow directions. i thought i did a good job, but since i reassembled the monome, the first 8 buttons (left-half of the top-row, if the cable orientation is on the top) will light up, but not respond to touch.

    i figured it was probably an incomplete connection on the side of one of the ribbons, but i pulled it open again and fidgeted with it, but that doesn't seem to be the issue.

    any tips would be really appreciated!

  • one of the chips was zapped by static. it's an easy fix (with the right tools) so you can send it in and i'll get it working. e-mail tehn monome org and we'll set it up.
