This is a long shot... If you have an add-in option board it may have become dislodged from the socket. If you move your keyboard this may be what happened. In any case it needs to be opened and look for loose cables, board, OR if you have a hard drive, the drive may have failed. The software in these units isn't smart enough to give the user any details of the failure/hangup.

Motif 6. When turned on, reads 'now checking plug in broad'. What's wrong?


If you see this message for only a short period of time, then this is normal. The plug-in boards are options that you can add to your Motif 6 to expand sounds/functionality. The first thing the Motif does is do a self check on the main keyboard first, then the plug-in boards. If the message just stays and does not go away, then there could be something wrong with either the optional plug in boards, or the main board the plug-in boards plug into. Make sure the option boards have not come loose, or have become damaged. Check the option board connectors.

What to do after plugging in a 110 electric Yamaha P150 piano into a 220 outlet?


probably find that the board is cooked from the over voltage
have it inspected in an electronic appliance repair shop and get a quote but I would expect that the unit is now junk

The roland d10 powers up but none of the buttons or keys work? the screen just says "roland d10 synth"? please help!


The unit name is part of the boot sequence, it should go beyond that and boot up completely. If it gets stuck there, there is surely some problem. Maybe a depleted internal battery, I don't know. Ask a local service center, maybe there's a combination of buttons you could check out while on the phone prior to bringing it in for repair...

After having been in safe waterproof storage during cyclone season I,ve unwrapped my korg pa 500 and plugged it in but it doesn,t boot up .The sreen is lit well with simply "Korg"...


First thing... make sure you are using the KA320 power adapter with it. We will work from there.

The unit probably is sensing an error of some type. Check these things: That NO key or button is STUCK down. Next, one could try reseating the memory sticks if you have expanded memory.

Let me know if you find a button or key is stuck down (not uncommon when unit has been wrapped) or you are using the wrong power adapter.

Hello, My Boss CS-3 Compression Sustainer pedal is having issues. I bought it around 6 months ago. When I first discovered the problem, it didn't work at all when turned on. It just made this feedback...


Make sure you use Alkaline battery and NOT rechargeable type... the rechargeable battery will NOT work in the pedals (their voltage is lower even though they are labeled as 9 volt replacement).

Other internal problems can be due to cracked circuit board or broken solder joints. These are very common as people step on the cables when plugged in. This breaks the connection inside. A fuzzy sound often occurs when one of the contacts is marginal due to bad solder at the jack terminals.

Good evening, I bought a second hand Mackie mixer 1604 VLZ-Pro, and I was not lucky. First of all I had to buy a new transformer which I already mounted. The problem is that after I turned it on all the...


With LED intensity changing with operations, that MIGHT be a symptom of the power supply going into current limiting mode.

The first thing I would do is to check the power supply voltages with an oscilloscope to assure that the voltages are stable and not dipping...

Now from my experience when I hear that a transformer had to be replaced that means it suffered over voltage or under frequency. I would IMMEDIATELY suspect that one or more of the rectifier diodes might be open. With only half wave into the caps the voltage will dip below what the regulators can handle giving weird effects. Check the +/- 16 volts with a scope that they are PURE DC and don't have ripple due to either damaged diodes or C6 or C7 being degraded. I assume you have a schematic... if you don't here is a link:

It stays stuck on home screen.it was not plugged in to power protecter when the power turned off . My fostex vf-16 is a later model similiar to the mr16 model


Try going to the Fostex.com site and download the instruction book. It could be a small electrical fault inside the machine. If you've tried all then take it to a Fostex dealer and have the look at it. They're too expensive to play around with.
Good Luck
