Tip

TD20 backing voice plays on everything no matter what...


no matter what pad i hit the slapbass wave sound would play..
i unplugged all midi connections..
i turned the backing parts volume down..
i removed all my patterns from the kit...
i did a factory reset...
and there it was STILL!! dang it!!
after calling Roland and hearing they have never heard of this problem before
i took the unit apart and removed the backup battery.
( didnt want to send my unit off..omg i am broke enough.)
i also pulled the ribbon cables from their holders and and then i put everything back...it factory reset when i turned it on..
(yes i had myown personal backups beforehand)
BooM! Mr TD20 was back without that slapbass wave! yahooo!
i dont know what caused it, but i was doing some major midi routing
experiments with my comp thru Sonar6P, midiman 4x4, and my Roland VSynth...and it did just kind of show up at some point when i had the backing voices turned down i guess..
it still persisted even after the TD20 was turned off for a day and half and i turned it back on to see if it still was happening...yep, i was hoping it would fix itself..lol..i hope this helps fellow musicians..play on!!

Sustain petal sticking, also stick without petal. Have taken action given in manuel. Still sticks.


Roland uses normally closed contacts... so if your cable or plug breaks contact, then will sustain. Check your cable for intermittent connection.

Hi.

You need to order the pads skins directly from Roland.

The local Roland number is written in user manual.

Here the service locator in US. If you are based in the USA you can also order the skins from your local authorized Roland Service point.

Roland Spd-s pads not working


Check for a cracked PCB internally from the two defective pads, or if the wires have detached from the trigger. You may not need parts, but if you do, it really depends on how helpful the Roland distributor in your area is as to whether you will have any luck getting them, or you may have to go trough a local authorized repair shop.
Good luck.
