  • Hi Junli,

    Thanks for posting. Sorry you're having issues with your DM10 kit. 

    Just to confirm, are you using the original DM10 kit or the DM10 MKII kit? Are you receiving the 'Calibration failed' error as soon as you boot your module?  If so, this is very likely just a mix up with the cabling and therefore the module cannot calibrate the triggers properly. Here are some troubleshooting steps in resolving this problem:
    1. Turn off the module, go to the back of the module and disconnect all of the cables on the top row.

    2. Turn on the module, if you are getting still getting the same message, repeat step 1 but with the cables on the bottom row. if you did not receive the calibration error message then continue on to step 3.
       
    3. Turn off the module and look carefully at the tip of your cable snake. Each cable has a color-coded label to help you connect it to the correct pad.  Please be sure that the red label reading "CRASH" is connected to Port 7 on your module and your 14" dual-zone pad. This is the most common mistake.

    4. Finally, turn the module back on, and the module should calibrate properly.
