Error Message

Main Processor Error Detected


There are several problems that could cause this error.  Memory Corruption (either hardware or software)  usually is at the root of the problem

Workaround / Fix

If the corruption is simply software, the corruption can be cleared by performing a diagnostics system clear.  Try this first.  Once the diagnostics system clear is performed, if error comes back, there is most likely a hardware memory failure.  The console will need to be sent to the factory to be repaired.

NOTE:Your show should first be saved to disk before trying the following:

To Perform a Diagnostic System Clear:

  1. With Console running, press [SETUP].
  2. Press [6] for System Settings.
  3. Press [Enter].
  4. Press [16].
  5. Press [Enter].
