Question about Music

1 Answer

Roland keyboard I have a roland keyboard, 5 of the keys play louder than the rest of the keys. I cannot play these keys softly. There was a liquid spilled on the keyboard. I have cleaned the boards and key contact points. Could bad diodes be the problem? Can I test them with a volt/ohm meter. There seems to be two diodes for each key? Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is my wifes keyboard and she did not spill the beer. Thanks a bunch. Allen

The problem of the Juno-D is de rubber strips inside under the keysthere are 5 strips, you have to clean this rubber strips with alcohol and clean the board too, this will resolve your problem if you leave the Juno-D without playing for a long period you will get the same problem again. this is a very poor keyboard it,s a pitty that Roland Make so poor keyboard!!!!

SOURCE: My sustain pedal does not work on my Roland Juno-D keyboard.

Have you tried the pedal straight into the amp without going thru the Roland?

Does the sustain pedal turn on with the foot pedal or is it a separte stomp switch to turn it on?

SOURCE: I need a service manual for Roland FP8 piano, or..

Did you ever get hold of an FP-8 service manual? The weight replacement is relatively simple: The case opens by removal of eight screws, four at each end on the underside. The top then hinges up. Keyboard assembly is removed by first unplugging the two white ribbon connectors at the center, then removing the screws at the front edge (underneath) and the screws (gold) at the back of the assembly (accessible from the top). Keys pop out by spreading the two "wings" at the pivot point, and then the weights (Roland calls them "hammers") lift out. Roland will sell you new ones, but I have no idea whether the replacements are any better than the originals. I've done two of these pianos so far, and have a third waiting to be worked on. I do have a service manual, but I think I downloaded it freebee somewhere.
The other failure mode on this piano is the electolytic coupling caps on the output board - I've replaced all of them on both pianos - don't remember the value offhand.

SOURCE: what is better, roland e-09 or roland e-14?

Here is the spec sheet for the Roland E-09:http://www.rolandus.com/products/productdetails.php?ProductId=828 The Roland E-14 was manufactured in 1996 and the specifications are not easily available on the internet. If you are considering buying one (E-14) make sure it is in good shape with everything working and you can get it cheaper than a new E-09. If you really want to compare you will have to find a manual for a E-14 and download a manual for a E-09 and compare the features side by side. If you have an E-14 and are considering purchasing a new E-09 find a local dealer who is selling the new one and see if you can take yours there and compare them side by side. Comparison should be a personal decision. I might like a Chev and you might like a Ford. You pretty much have to decide for yourself. If you are buying one look at your budget and compare other keyboards with similar features. Also consider whether the amount of playing you will do might justify saving up some money to buy a higher end Roland if you are particular to Roland. Let me know if this helps.

Roland EP50 F sharp does'nt work.All other keys are fine


EP-50's are notorious for problems with either the 4.65 voltage feed to the velocity sensitive keys or failure of the small zenner diaodes. Each key has a pair fo split circles on the circuit board under it. When you hit the key you connect each side of the circles and the harder you hit the keys the quicker the circuits close the louder the sound. Problem is if the voltage to either circle fails, due to bad solder, scratch on circuit board, failed diaode then the sound disappears. The fix is simple if you are knowledgeable on solder on circuit boards, can use a multimeter and can dissassemble and reassemble the keyboard. If you have to take it to a repair shop it is probably not worth fixing as this is not one of the better Roland products

Replace broken hammer key on roland kr 575


I've actually repaired two broken hammer keys on my Roland KR-575, after paying $250 (TWICE) for a repairman to come to my house and fix two other keys.
The repair I completed was about four of five years ago. I searched the internet and found great instructions to print out. Unfortunately, I can't find them again. HOWEVER, I did find this video: Roland Keyboard Repair. It shows you the hardest thing about the repair - how to take the cover(s) off to get to the keys! The video is not as detailed as the instructions I used before - but pretty good. The parts cost me about $25.

Unfortunately (for me) I have yet another key to fix now. This time I will take pictures and notes and update here with my results. It might take several weeks though (I'm trying to finish a big school project). In the mean time, try the video. I don't recommend trying super-glue like the video says, but sometimes finding parts is difficult, so I guess that might be an option if you couldn't get the parts easily. I just don't think a weight repaired with super glue will last very long.

Here are a few suggestions to find the parts you will need:
My other advice is to keep careful track of all the different screws you take out - and away from kids, grandkids, and pets - so you can put them back in the right place after your key repair is finished. (The screws that is ;)
