Important Safety Instructions
WARNING
When using this electric product, basic precautions should always be followed, including
the following:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
Read all instructions before use
Do not use this carillon near water - for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, sink, wet basement, or
near a swimming pool, or the like.
This carillon, either alone or in combination with a PA amplifier and headphones or speakers, may
be capable of producing sound levels that could cause permanent hearing loss. Do not operate for a
long period of time at a high volume level or at a level that is uncomfortable. If you experience any
hearing loss or ringing in the ears, you should consult an audiologist.
This carillon should be located away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, or other
products that produce heat.
Care should be taken so that objects do not fall and liquids do not spill into the enclosure through
openings.
The carillon should be serviced by qualified service personnel when:
a)
The power supply cord has been damaged; or
b)
objects have fallen, or liquid has been spilled onto the carillon; or
c)
The carillon has been exposed to rain; or
d)
The carillon does not appear to be operating normally or exhibits a marked change in
performance; or
e)
The product has been dropped, or the enclosure damaged.
Do not attempt to service this carillon beyond that described in the user-maintenance instructions.
All other servicing should be referred to qualified service personnel.
Grounding
This carillon must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding
provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock.
This carillon is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a
grounding plug. Do not remove or alter the grounding prong in any manner. The plug
must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local rules and ordinances.
DANGER
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric
shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether
the carillon is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the carillon - if it
will not fit the outlet; have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Important Information/Reference Tables
Lightning
The Millennium Carillon is provided with surge protection circuits. Lightning strikes
near, or directly to nearby power lines can cause an excessive surge of voltage that can
damage the unit.
Lightning damage is uncommon, but it can occur to any electronic device. We suggest that
you unplug all electronic products during storms, especially if you are concerned about it
or if you live in an area with frequent and/or severe electrical storms.
As with any valuable equipment purchase, you should review your insurance policy to be
sure that your Millennium Carillon is covered for fire, theft, vandalism or damage due to
electrical storms.
Radio Interference
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital
device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a
commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause
interference to radio or television equipment reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference
by any combination of the following measures:
•
Relocate or reorient the receiving antenna
•
Increase the separation between the equipment and the receiver
•
Plug the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference in
which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.
WARNING: changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by the party
responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
The above instructions apply only to units that will be operated in the United States

Quick Reference Guide
1
This section of the Chime Master® Systems Millennium Carillon Operating Manual is
organized as several step-by-step procedures that you may refer to after the carillon has been
installed. Hookup instructions are found in Section 2, and your initial familiarization of
the carillon should begin with Section 3 on Page 35.
Trying Out the System for the First Time
If you have just installed your system, you are probably eager to hear how it sounds. While
it is ringing, you may need to adjust the volume level. The Master Level control may be
located on the rear panel of the carillon amplifier. Check the installation sheet supplied
with the amplifier.
First, insert the key into the front panel key-switch and turn the key on. Now, simply press
[1], then [ENTER]. This will ring a call-to-worship swinging bell. To play a musical selection,
press [4], then [ENTER].
You have just used two of the four re-programmable functions. These functions are
explained on page 15.
Entering Selections
Many of the following pages show how to play or program selections. As you follow those
instructions, it will be helpful to know how to enter selections. When a four-digit number
is flashing on the display, the system is waiting for you to enter a selection. You may enter
the selection using one of the following methods.
To Play Specific Selections
Look the title up in the selections catalog to find the four-digit number for the selection.
You can enter specific selection numbers directly using the numeric buttons. When a fourdigit selection is blinking, you may also look up the number using the online catalog (see
the next page).
To Delete or Change Selections
Press [0] [0] [0] [0] while a selection is flashing, to remove it. To change a selection, just
enter a new selection number over the old one.
To Play a Random Selection
Press the [cursor] button once to display Grp_, and then press [1] to [8] to select a
random music group. You will find these random groups described on page 7, and in
more detail on page 44.
To Play a Random Block of Selections
Random blocks are used to schedule random music for a block of time. They are four-digit
numbers beginning with 70, and are listed on page 7 and explained on page 45.
Chime Master® Systems - Millennium® Carillon Version 2.3
13
To Program a Pause (Automatic Schedule Only)
Use a pause in the schedule to delay subsequent selections a specific number of minutes
beyond the even quarter hour. Press the [cursor] button twice to display Pau_ followed
by [1] to [8] which indicate the number of minutes to delay. Use multiple pauses to
increase the delay time.
This view shows a five-minute pause, which allows
MO 3:15P SRCH L6 OFF
Amazing Grace (#1225) to play at 3:20 P.M., followed
Pau5 1225 Grp2 7023
by a random music selection from group 2, followed by
random music filling the quarter hour from group 3.
Access Online Music Titles
To enter a specific music selection, you may do it by title rather than number. This
procedure works from the schedule editing screen (as shown), the manual-selection entry
screen and the function-button programming screen. You may use this procedure
whenever a four-digit selection number is flashing.

Connections and Setup
AC Power
Power supplied to the Chime Master System should be from a properly grounded
receptacle connected to a clean circuit capable of providing 10 Amps of current. By clean,
we mean that the circuit should not also provide power to large motors associated with air
conditioners or refrigerators. Most electrical supply and hardware stores sell simple test
plugs that can verify that the receptacle is wired properly.
Surge suppression components are built-in to the carillon. For additional protection, you
may add a surge suppressor to the receptacle that the carillon plugs into. You may also
consider having an electrician install a lightning/surge suppressor to the circuit breaker
panel supplying any of your electronic equipment.
Amplifier Connections
Typical Tower Amplifier Connections
Typically, the carillon power amplifier is stacked under the carillon module. The rear panel
of the carillon module has an unbalanced ¼" phone jack labeled Line Output, Outside. A
cable with a ¼" phone plug is attached to the Chime Master Carillon Amplifier, and
should be plugged into this jack.
The power cord from the amplifier plugs into the receptacle on the rear panel of the
carillon module labeled Amplifier Power.
Remote Amplifier Option
Balanced audio and amplifier power control are available on the Amplifier Control jack.
We will supply special cables and hookup instructions when this connection is used.
Tower Speaker Connections
Follow the instructions for connecting the tower speakers that were included with the
tower amplifier.
Chime Master® Systems - Millennium® Carillon Version 2.3
27
Inside Monitoring Systems
Optional Organ Chamber Speaker Connections
An optional monitoring system may be built-in for inside listening. A pair of 3-way binding
posts are located near the center of the rear panel and labeled 60W/8 Ohm Speaker. A
control located on the right of the carillon front panel controls the level of the built-in
monitor speaker as well as speaker(s) connected to the monitor speaker jacks. Do not
connect speakers to the carillon that are simultaneously connected to any other device.
Sanctuary PA System Connections
The rear panel of the Modular Millennium carillon has a ¼" phone jack labeled Line
Output, Inside. This output carries an unbalanced line level signal suitable for connecting
to the Line Input of a nearby PA or instrument amplifier.
Plugging a cable into this jack will mute the carillon’s built-in speaker. If you should wish
to mute the speaker without making a connection to the PA system (because you’re using
monitor speakers described in the preceding section), you may insert a ¼” plug without a
cable, such as an RCA to ¼” adapter.
The monitor level control located on the right of the carillon module front panel also
controls the output level of the PA System jack.
Keyboard Connections
A 7 pin circular DIN jack on the rear of the Millennium Module allows connection of
either a Chime Master keyboard (supplied with a 7 pin cable) or a compatible MIDI
keyboard (requiring a standard 5 pin MIDI cable). The length of the keyboard cable
should be less than 50 feet. Lengths greater than 50 feet can be accommodated using a
line driver extension accessory available from Chime Master Systems.
Optional keyboard scanner adaptors are available that convert the electrical keying voltages
available on an electric pipe organ console to play the carillon.
Remote Control Connections
The remote control receiver plugs into the Remote Control jack located on the rear panel.
If the supplied cable is not sufficiently long enough for proper positioning of the receiver, a
1/8” stereo headphone extension cable may be employed.
Seasonal Setup
The Millennium’s primary strength is its ‘set it and forget it’ ease of programming. The
seasonal almanac makes this possible and you have total control. In addition to daylight
saving time, you may enable or disable liturgical seasons and set the date in December that
Christmas music begins to play.

Swng Peal Toll Hymn
Disabling Random Seasons
Typically each time you want the carillon to play music you will select one or more random
selections. This allows the system to pick selections at random from seasonal or nonseasonal play lists. There are several reasons why you may not want the system to always do
this. For example, a Protestant church will typically not play Marian Hymns during the
month of May. Some churches do not wish to play patriotic selections on Memorial and
Independence days.
Selecting Factory Pre-recorded Music Arrangements
If you have used the optional record librarian to build a large library of music, you may
wish to disable all of the factory recordings in favor of your own. On the other hand, you
may favor the Chime with Harp arrangements over the full carillon music. The seasonal
setup option allows you to disable one or both by pressing [NO] when the Use Pre Rec 2
Part or Use Pre Rec Full options are displayed. Both types of arrangements are always
available on a title-by-title basis. This setting only affects random playback.
Important! If both factory pre-recorded musical arrangements are disabled, and you don’t
have many (or any) user recordings set for random playback; the system may not play when
programmed with random selections. When the system is supposed to play, watch for an
error message that says “Seasonal Play list Empty.”
Inside/Outside Auto-Mute
The Millennium Carillon can automatically mute the inside or outside speakers depending
on how you wish to use the system. At the end of the Seasonal Options menu are two
options that allow you to customize this feature.
Both automatic play (any music or bell ringing activated by the automatic schedule) and
manual play (music or bell ringing activated by the remote control or Play Selections menu)
can be set so that the speakers will operate inside only, outside only or both (inside and
outside). These options are displayed in the menu as In, Out or Bth. Use the [cursor] and
[cursor] buttons to rotate the selection between In, Out and Bth.
Generally you would set the automatic mode to play either both or outside only. The
factory defaults are to play both inside and outside for automatic and manual selections.
Let’s say for an example, that you only wish the keyboard performances to be heard inside.
That is, all non-keyboard bell-ringing needs to play outside only. To accomplish this, set
Chime Master® Systems - Millennium® Carillon Version 2.3
31
automatic to outside, and manual to outside. Because these options do not affect the
keyboard performance modes, only the keyboard will be heard through the inside speakers.
When the system is playing, the green front panel lights will indicate which speakers are
active.
Voicing Pre-Recorded Selections
The Millennium Carillon comes in five models:
•
Bronze Edition – uses compressed audio files – no voice preference menu.
•
Silver Edition – One bell voice, the Voicing Preference menu is disabled.
•
Gold Duet Edition M3 – Supports five combinations of voices.
•
Gold Edition M6 – Supports six combinations of bell voices.
• Platinum Edition M10 – Supports 19 voice combinations.
Factory Pre-recorded selections come in two varieties, Chime and Harp and Full Carillon.
The Chime and Harp arrangements can be played on two bell voices (melody with
accompaniment), while the Full Carillon arrangements are played on a single bell voice.
M3 and M10 models allow the Harp arrangement to be turned off, playing simpler
arrangements on a two-octave chime.
To enter the Setup Voicing Preference screen from the standby screen press [ENTER] [3]
[ENTER] [2] [ENTER]. Use [cursor] and [cursor] to select the arrangement to voice then
[cursor] so that the right side of the display flashes and [cursor] and [cursor] to select
the voice for that arrangement. [ENTER] will exit and save the change or you can [⊳cursor]
back to the left side to select another arrangement to voice. [CANCEL] exits without saving
any changes.
While in this menu, you may audition the various voices. Press [2] to hear the displayed
voice and arrangement. A hymn tune will play for music arrangements, and a 3:00
Westminster hour strike will play for the clock arrangements.
Keyboard voice simplification is available on the Gold and Platinum Edition models.
When the left side of the display says “Keyb1:” the right side can be set to either “Music
Setting” or “Long Listing.” “Music setting” will show only the voices set for Chime and
Harp or Full Carillon arrangements above. “Keyb2” allows the secondary keyboard (swell
manual on an organ) bell voice to be preset.
Keyboard Setup
The Modular Millennium carillon is designed to be compatible with a wide range of MIDI
compatible keyboards. The keyboard setup menu allows the system to be set to respond to
any size keyboard transmitting on any MIDI channel. In addition, the touch sensitivity
may be adjusted to suit individual playing styles.
The Millennium can easily be configured to respond to two manuals of compatible MIDI
organ consoles. Be sure that both MIDI stops you intend to use are on before proceeding
with the setup procedure.
32
Overview of Important Features
Configure Keyboard Menu
Bring up the Configure Keyboard screen from the Setup Menu by pressing (from Standby
Mode) [ENTER] [3] [ENTER] [7] [ENTER]. A precautionary screen makes sure that you wish to
change this critical setup by requiring that you also press [9] to continue. You must
proceed to each step of the setup procedure within two minutes or the system will default
to the correct configuration for the Chime Master 49 note single keyboard.
Depress the highest note available on the primary keyboard manual. This is the keyboard
that you would normally use for playing the melody on multiple keyboard consoles
(typically the Great manual). The display will show both the note and the MIDI channel it
was transmitted on.
Depress the lowest note on the primary keyboard manual.
Depress the highest note on the secondary keyboard manual (if available, or the highest
note of the single keyboard again). The secondary keyboard is used to play the
accompaniment bell voices for Chime and Harp arrangements (typically the Swell manual).
Depress the lowest note on the secondary keyboard manual (if available, or the lowest note
of the single keyboard again).
Always be sure to engage the organ’s MIDI stops before running the Setup/Configure
Keyboard procedure. Failure to do so may prevent the carillon from muting when the
MIDI stops are disengaged. The procedure will automatically set the carillon MIDI
channels for each manual to the lower numbered channel received.
While some organs only output MIDI data when the MIDI stop is selected, others always
transmit on channels 12 (Great) or 13 (Swell). When the MIDI stops are engaged they
transmit on both channels 2 and 12 (Great) or 3 and 13 (Swell).
Incidentally, the MIDI stops are the only means that should be used to enable/disable the
Millennium carillon during a performance. Using the remote control to enable the bells
during a performance can cause the carillon to become ‘lost’ because it does not process
the MIDI data stream when in the standby mode.
Bell striking intensity is controlled by either note velocity or MIDI volume (controller 7)
data.
Setting Touch Sensitivity
You may find that when you play softly, the notes are not playing loud enough. Your
MIDI organ keyboard may not be touch-sensitive, and the notes play too harshly. Both
cases can be adjusted for with the Touch Sensitivity menu.
Bring up the Keyboard Sensitivity screen from the Setup Menu by pressing (from Standby
Mode) [ENTER] [3] [ENTER] [6] [ENTER].

not operate. All automatically scheduled performances as well as the remote control
functions continue to operate the system when the front panel buttons are locked. The
key cannot be removed when it is in the horizontal unlocked position. Store the remote
control in a secure location when it is not being used.
Monitor Level Control
The monitor level control adjusts the volume of the bells ringing inside. This includes the
monitoring speaker (mounted behind the bell shaped grille), the built-in monitoring
amplifier that can drive organ chamber speakers or the line output jack when it is
connected to a PA system.
Push Buttons
The [ENTER] button
will execute selected menus. In programming screens, it confirms
changes made to the program.
button will escape out of certain system operations and modes. It will reject
the currently playing selection. Press it twice to reject an entire performance.
The [CANCEL]
Ten black buttons have alphabetical characters printed on them, and numbers printed to
the left of them. They are generally used for entering numeric information such as
selection numbers into the programming schedule (which can also be done by title).
Chime Master® Systems - Millennium® Carillon Version 2.3

When assigning titles to selections, the black buttons will allow you to easily enter
alphabetical characters. The system will type the first character printed on the button the
first time you press it. Subsequent presses will rotate through the remaining characters and
finally through the number. The system automatically capitalizes the first letter of each
word in the title.
The top row of black buttons ([1] through [4]) represents the four functions displayed on
the lower line of the Standby Menu screen.
The four gray buttons arranged in a diamond pattern are the cursor buttons. They will be
referred to in this manual as [⊳cursor], [cursor] (select left and right), [cursor] and
[cursor] (scroll up and down). When the scroll-up and down buttons are needed to
answer 'Yes' and 'No' to questions appearing on the display, they will be shown in this
manual as [YES] and [NO].
Whenever the system is prompting for a selection (by flashing four digits), the number of
the desired selection can be entered directly, or selected from the onscreen title display by
pressing the [NO] button. Random Groups and Pauses (in the View/Edit Schedule screen)
may be entered by alternately pressing the [YES] button.
Inside/Outside Speaker Status Indicators
To the right of the push buttons are two indicator lights. When the system is playing or
ready to play, the top light will light if the program will play through the outside speakers;
the bottom light will light if the program will play through the inside monitor or organ
chamber speakers.
The Setup – Seasonal Options menu (see page 28) allows inside/outside/both options to be
set independently for automatic (scheduled) programs and remote (manual function)
programs. This allows, for example, a system that has frequent programs scheduled to be
set so that the inside speakers are muted when the system plays automatically. The
automatic programming would not interrupt any special events occurring in the church.
Bells played from the remote control would be played through the inside speakers. The
keyboard performance modes always play inside.
Display
If the system has been in Standby mode for more than a few minutes, the display will be
dimmed and the current time will scroll. The life of the display is greatly increased by
operating it this way. The display intensifies and shows the Standby Menu when you push
any of the gray cursor buttons.

Overview of Important Features
Standby Mode
Standby mode is the normal operating mode of the system. Programmed selections and
bell functions will not play automatically, unless the system is in Standby mode.
Please note that it is normal for the display to enter a screen saver mode after several
minutes of keyboard inactivity. This extends the life of the display. Pressing any gray
button will restore the Standby mode display. The position of the key lock does not affect
automatic playing; it only locks the front panel buttons.
N 3:07 PM MON 07-25
Swng Peal Toll Hymn
The 'N' denotes a non-seasonal time of year. This changes
with the seasons as described below. This is followed on the
top line by the current time and date. The lower line labels
the four function buttons.
Seasonal Almanac
During the selected seasons, a seasonal play list is substituted for the non-seasonal lists as
described in the Selections Catalog. Supported seasons are Non-seasonal, Lent, Good
Friday, Easter, Marian, Patriotic, Thanksgiving, Advent and Christmas.
A letter displayed at the top left corner of the standby screen shows which seasonal play list
is currently in use. A disabled season (see Seasonal Setup on page 28) will result in an ‘N’
displayed during that time. The display always indicates the current season music list in
use.
L 3:07 PM FRI 03-28
Swng Peal Toll Hymn
Example: During the Lenten Season, the display will show
that Lenten (L) selections will be substituted when seasonal
random selections are programmed.
Automatic Reset
Diagnostic reset circuits and programming continually monitors the system for proper
operation. If it detects anything out of the ordinary, it will attempt to correct itself without
operator intervention. If that is not possible, it locks up and displays a message. Refer to
the Troubleshooting Guide on page 67 for specific instructions for dealing with error
messages.
The reset program places highest priority on automatic performance. For this reason, the
system will reset from most setup menus after a few minutes of push button inactivity. A
ninety second countdown warning screen will allow you to continue the current operation
by pressing any button.
System Resetting to
Standby in 90 secs.
Countdown warning screen appears after a period of
inactivity in the setup screens. To return to the previous
operation press any key.
Cued selections ready to play and waiting for either the front panel [ENTER] or remote
[PLAY] buttons will hold for up to 60 minutes before the system resets. Tower Performance
and Record Menu-Voice (Inside practice performance) screens also reset after 60 minutes
of inactivity.

Important! Be sure to [CANCEL] or [STOP] the keyboard performance menus when the
performance is complete so that the regularly scheduled automatic performances will
continue. The keyboard performance modes will remain active for an hour after the last
note is played.
Remote Function Performance
Remote Control
The four function selection buttons duplicate the buttons [1] through [4] on the front
panel of the Chime Master System Unit. When the system is in the Standby mode, these
four buttons allow special functions to be played.
The red [STOP] button on the remote duplicates the [CANCEL] button on the front panel.
Whenever the system is playing, pressing stop will cause the selection to be interrupted. If
a function with multiple selections is programmed, then the next selection in the sequence
may play after the current one is canceled. To cancel all selections, press [CANCEL] at least
two times.
When a function selection is ready to play, the green [PLAY] button duplicates the action of
the [ENTER] button on the front panel.
To send a command from the remote transmitter to the Chime Master, simply press the
appropriate button. Each time a button is pressed, it should be held for about one second.
If the battery condition allows proper transmission, the green battery condition light will
illuminate.
The Function Labels
The lower part of the remote transmitter allows the function selection buttons to be
labeled. A label corresponding to the factory default function programs is shipped
installed in the transmitter. Spare labels, which can be typed on, are also included so that
you may label your own custom functions.
To remove the label card, push it toward the top slot with the eraser end of a pencil, while
curling the top of the card outward with a letter opener or other sharp flat object, being
careful not to scratch the finish.
Operational Tips
The remote transmitter operates in the UHF frequency band. This provides a line of sight
transmission of at least 100 feet. Any mass of metal between the transmitter and receiver
will inhibit proper operation. You may also discover a few dead spots where the unit may
not operate, even though you are closer than 100 feet.
For best results, the transmitter antenna should be hanging vertically when transmitting. If
it must lie horizontally, it should be oriented so that it is perpendicular to the direction to
the receiver. Operation from metal cabinets or tables will probably not be satisfactory.
If the transmitter is operated next to microphones or microphone cables, it is possible that
the PA system will pick up a noise, similar to a telephone ring tone. Avoid operation in

close proximity to PA equipment and wiring.

Scheduling Automatic Performances
The schedule editing features of the Chime Master Millennium Carillon allow you to easily
schedule this carillon to do just about anything you can think of on a weekly basis.
The time clock program memory is organized in quarter hour slots. Typical performances
will begin on quarter hours, but timed pauses can be used to delay the start of a
performance to any time. Each quarter hour time slot contains four selection holders, a
time strike option and a volume level setting.
Two menu screens are used for changing the performance schedule. View/Edit Schedule
appears on the Main Menu. Use it to review the current schedule and easily make changes
to specific time slots. The Time Strike/Auto Level screen appears in the Setup Menu.
Time strike options and volume level changes over larger periods of time are set on this
screen.
For the purposes of explaining the process, let’s set up a typical ringing schedule:
Two random music selections at noon, and again at 6 P.M. every day.
One minute Call to Worship swinging bell at 8:00 A.M. and 10:30 A.M. on
Sunday morning.
Thirty-second swinging bell at 6:55 P.M. on Wednesday.
Westminster time striking from 8 A.M. until 9 P.M. Monday through Saturday.
Westminster time striking from 1 P.M. until 8 P.M. on Sunday.
Navigating the View/Edit Schedule Screen
If the Standby light is on, bring up the View/Edit Schedule screen by pressing [ENTER] [2]
[ENTER]. If the Standby light is not on, press [CANCEL] until it is on.

minute and search mode fields.
The dark areas shown on the above display are the time positioning fields. The grayed out
portion of the display are the program fields. The [ENTER] button toggles activity between
the time positioning and program fields. The [CANCEL] button will reject any changes
made if the program fields are flashing. When the time positioning fields are flashing
[CANCEL] will exit the View/Edit Schedule screen and return the system to Standby.
The program fields are accessed after the time slot is selected by pressing [ENTER]. When
the program field is flashing, the [⊳cursor] and [cursor] buttons select the program fields,
allowing them to be edited. To store the changes press [ENTER], to reject the changes and

revert to the previous program press [CANCEL]. The time positioning field last selected will
flash.
The four zero fields on the lower line represent events programmed at the current time
slot.1034 represents a one-minute swinging bell. This is followed by a five-minute pause
(Pau5) and two hymns from random group 1 (Grp1). The L4 on the upper line indicates
that the system will play at volume level four at this time, and the CHM shows that the
scheduled program will be preceded by a time strike using the Westminster melody (if
Westminster is selected as the clock striking melody in Setup – Clock Chime Melody
menu.
When the day field (SU, MO, TU, WE, TH, FR, SA) is flashing, the [cursor] button will
scroll backwards to the previous day and the [cursor] button will scroll forward to the
next day, at the same time of day.
When the hour field is flashing, the [cursor] button will scroll backwards to the previous
hour and the [cursor] button will scroll forward to the next hour.
When the minute field is flashing, the [cursor] button will scroll backward to the previous
quarter hour time slot and the [cursor] button will scroll forward to the next quarter hour
time slot.
Viewing the Current Schedule
When the search field (SRCH) is flashing, the [cursor] button will search backward and
the [cursor] button will search forward to the next time slot that has a program
scheduled.
When you press and hold a cursor button, the display will continue to scroll through the
schedule so that you can quickly locate any time you desire.
If you search to the first scheduled time slot on Sunday, you can easily document your
weekly schedule by copying down what is programmed at each scheduled slot as you step
through the schedule while SRCH is flashing.

Global Scheduling
In the previous section we described how the clock striking and volume level settings could
be changed for a particular time slot. Changing these settings for several days, or even
several hours in one day would be a tedious task without the capability of global
scheduling.
The step-by-step procedure reference for this mode is found on page 24.

Press [Enter], [3], [Enter], [0], to reach the Time
Strike/Auto-level programming screen from the Standby
mode.
The default times when entering this screen are all 24 hour segments of all seven days of
the week. The default program is to set the level to 6. Use the [⊳cursor] and [cursor]
buttons to move around the screen and the [cursor] and [cursor] buttons to modify each
field. When the start and end times and days are set and the time strike mode or level
setting for those times is selected, move the cursor to Set Prog and press [ENTER] to
program the settings for those times.
Select the Starting and Ending Times
The left half of the Time Strike/Auto Level screen displays the region of the schedule that
will be modified. The top portion shows the starting hour and ending hour. When first
entering this screen it will display ‘12A to 12A’ and ‘SUN .. SAT’ indicating that all 24
hours of each day, and every day of the week are selected for programming.
Set the starting time field (to the left of ‘to’) to the time that you want to start the time
strike mode. From 12A you will use [cursor] to select another starting time. Next, press
[cursor] to get to the ending time field. From 12A you will use [cursor] to select another
ending time.
Important! Each hour specified in this screen represents only four quarter-hours. So,
‘01PM to 02PM’ specifies the range including 1:00 P.M., 1:15 P.M., 1:30 P.M. and
1:45 P.M. 2:00 P.M. is not included in the range and will not be programmed. If
‘10A to 09P’ is displayed, 10:00 A.M. to 8:45 P.M. is selected (to but not including
9:00 P.M.).
The system will not allow you to reverse the starting and ending times. Once the ending
time is set to the hour following the starting time it will go no earlier. Attempting to set
the starting time past the ending time will push the ending time ahead so that it is always at
least an hour after the starting time.

are set, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday will be programmed. ‘SUN .. SAT’ will
program every day of the week.
It is helpful to set the program for largest blocks of time first. Also, since the block of time
does not change after setting the program for the time strike, you may also set the volume
level for that time period as well (see Programming Loudness on page 49) for the same block
of time.

Important! Setting TS OFF turns all TIME STRIKE functions OFF for the times selected.
Doing this when first entering the menu will turn off the time strike for all times. You can
do this to clear the time strike program before resetting it for new times.
Three basic time strike functions behave differently, depending on the quarter of the hour
being chimed. They can be viewed and changed for any quarter hour in the View/Edit
Schedule screen. These functions are: OFF, where the system does not announce the time;
STRIKE, where at the top of the hour, a chime shall strike the hour, and on all other
quarters will strike only once; CHIME, where at the top of the hour, the selected time
strike melody shall play, followed by striking of the hour, and on all other quarters a
portion of the selected time strike melody shall play. You can check these modes in the
View/Edit Schedule screen for each quarter hour, displayed as OFF, STK and CHM.

8324 Play RemovedRnd
The selection has been removed from the Christmas random
play list. RemovRnd signifies that it has been removed from
random play.
You will still find Happy Birthday in the User Recordings section of the online title lookup,
and 8324 will be a valid selection number for playback.
Deleting User Recordings
User recorded selections can be deleted. This may be desirable if a selection was
accidentally saved, or is otherwise unusable.

Troubleshooting Guide
In Standby mode, the system is continuously performing diagnostics. If it detects something out of
the ordinary, it will attempt to correct itself without operator intervention. If that is not possible, it
locks up and displays a message. Although this can be an inconvenience, it will prevent the system
from falsely ringing at inconvenient times, such as after a storm in the middle of the night. In the
rare event that a problem is detected, one of the following messages may appear on your display. If
this happens, follow the procedure listed below the message.
If the system appears to be ringing at inappropriate times, search the program schedule (see Review
the Automatic Play Schedule on page 18) to be sure that it is correct (double check the AM/PM) field
and that the time is set correctly on the Standby screen (check AM/PM here also).
If your system seems to be doing any other strange things that are not described below, turn the
power switch off for about 10 seconds, then back on.
Librarian Option Not Installed
Option Not Installed
Recording Librarian
If your carillon does not have this option installed, you will see this momentary message whenever
you attempt to activate the Recording Librarian (see Activating the Librarian on page 63) or attempt
to save a selection from the Record Performance Menu (see Save the Selection on page 61).
Without the Librarian option you may only record one selection that will remain in the record
buffer. To schedule or manually play this selection, enter selection number 8000. Obviously there
will be no user titles in the On Screen Title Lookup pages, so this series option also will not appear
(see Onscreen Titles on page 40).
All Millennium carillons have a MIDI keyboard connector on the rear panel. To configure the
carillon to work with your MIDI keyboard, see Keyboard Connections (on page 28) and Keyboard
Setup (on page 33). You may use your keyboard for both live performance and the recording of
selection 8000.
Your system may be upgraded with the Recording Librarian at any time. Call customer support
for details at (800) 432-3977.

Error in Program Schedule Detected
Program is corrupted
Yes-Clear No-Salvage
If a power outage that surges on and off rapidly occurs (which often accompany high winds and
storms), program memory may be affected. If the system detects any change in the schedule
memory, it will display this message and suspend automatic operation. The corruption is usually
minor and so we have provided a way to salvage as much of it as possible.
Should you select [YES] to reinitialize the program, or select [NO] to salvage? The answer depends
on how complex your program is to key in, or if you have an adequate record of it at all. The least
amount of time and effort will be spent if you press [NO] to salvage what you can. When you elect
to salvage, each time slot is checked and will be cleared if any invalid selections are found. Also
any slots programmed between 11:00 P.M. and 6:00 A.M. will be cleared. Be sure to check the
schedule with View mode after resetting (see Review the Automatic Play Schedule on page 18).
If you press [YES], the system will also clear the seasonal preferences, so you will have to reset those
in addition to re-entering your ringing schedule.
Error in Seasonal Preference Memory Detected
Memory Warning
Verify ALL Options
If the system should ever detect that the seasonal preferences memory may have corrupted, the
system will display this message and suspend automatic operation.
Press [ENTER] for each option and verify that it is correctly set. Use the [YES] and [NO] buttons to
modify the settings.
Blank Screen
Due to rare interruptions of program process, the screen may appear blank for a period that
should not exceed 15 minutes. If it does exceed this period, turn off the power to the system or
unplug it from the wall receptacle for about 10 seconds, then power back on or plug the system
back into the wall receptacle. The program should resume after resetting itself to normal. If it does
not, check the fuses on the rear panel. Be sure to replace with the same fuse types.

Troubleshooting
Time Clock Errors
Clock Error (E)
A clock error means that invalid data has been found in the time clock registers. Set the clock
from the Setup, Set Time menu, and then check system operation manually. Call the factory for
service information.
No Sound
If no sound is heard either from the tower or from the monitor speaker when the display shows
that a selection is playing, follow this checklist.
Determine that the system is actually playing properly. Turn the power off and then back on. Try
playing a selection manually or with a function button.
1.
2.
3.
4.
One or both green speaker status lights on the front of the Millennium should come on when the system
is playing. If neither light while the display says it is playing, check the muting options in the Seasonal
Setup (see page 31). Also, you should have a power indication on the amplifier power light.
Are connections to the amplifier at fault? Make sure that all cables are plugged in completely.
Is the amplifier at fault? Try plugging the amplifier power cable directly into the AC wall socket and
remove the audio cable from the back of the main unit. One of the Tower lights on the front of the
amplifier should come on.
If sound can be heard from the monitor speaker, but not from the tower follow this checklist:
1. Make sure that the tower switch is in the on position and that the green light comes on while the
system is playing.
2. Check that the tower speaker cable is properly attached to the amplifier output terminals.
3. Check the tower speaker cable for shorts between the conductors.
Returning the System for Service or Upgrades
Do not return equipment without calling (800) 432-3977 for return authorization. We may help
you avoid returning the equipment. The customer service representative will also provide you with
the address of the service station.
The following steps make your system ready for shipment.
Transportation Preparation Procedure
1. Turn the system power OFF. The main power switch is on the rear of the unit.
2. Turn the key to the locked position (fully counterclockwise) and remove the key.
3. Put the key where it will be safe until your unit is returned to you.
4. Disconnect Cables. Unplug the power cord from the wall receptacle. Unplug the audio cables
from the rear of the unit. Do not send any of the cables with the unit, unless they are suspect.

Use Only Original Chime Master Systems Packaging
Locate the original packing. Your warranty may be voided if your system arrives with shipping
damage due to improper packing. If you cannot find your original boxes with foam packing
materials as described below, call us to order a new box with packing. A nominal charge is made
for the shipping package.
Packing Materials
(1)
Box, 24 by 24 by 12 inches
(2)
Blocks of cushioned foam packing
(1)
Accessory box if returning remote
The cushioned foam packing fits the ends of the unit (large spacer end toward the rear of the
system).
If you are returning accessories, do not place them loosely in the box with the system. A separate
accessory box was used to ship them to you. Place it vertically behind the system.
Insure the package. The package should weigh about 40 pounds. Use original packing materials.
Chime Master Systems will not be liable for shipping damages.
After Your Carillon has Been Serviced
Before Turning On Power.
To prepare system for operation:
Reconnect the cables to the rear panel of the system.
We make every effort to reprogram your schedule and settings after servicing your carillon.
