Hello: I recently got an Alesis MMT8 for next to nothing (caveat emptor buy). All powerup indications look good. However, when I press RECORD and select a track number, then press PLAY, it displays COUNTDOWN with a count of '5'. Then it stops without doing a countdown; nothing more. I cannot see any signs of flakiness, bad power, or other indicators of hardware trouble. Even after reading the official user manual for setting up recording and then starting the record steps, I cannot see that I am leaving out any steps. Ideas are welcome.
