Check your power cord. Sometimes they break near one of the plug ends. Use an Ohmmeter to verify continuity.

Shipping something to a repair shop is GUARANTEED to TEMPORARILY fix the problem due to vibration in shipping.

Not sure what you are recording to, but if it is an internal hard drive, that would be the prime suspect. Drives are cheap, replace it and format it!

SOURCE: When the Roland Fantom x6

It obviously will need to be repaired. It sounds like a power supply problem. I would NOT use it until it is repaired as there could be a problem that if left untreated may damage other components.

Some devices go into a sleep mode if no action is being done, but it doesn't sound like that is the case with your unit.

Hi, My Roland Fantom G6 keyboard has an accident and the analog output is dead. I ask you if it is a possibility to find the entire Jack Board for replacement. It is named: FANTOM-G6 JACK BOARD ASSY...


Does the headphone jack work? Replacing a whole board would be expensive and the problem could be elsewhere. What was the accident? If large signals were driven back into the audio out lines, probably the output driver chip is fried... They likely use a common 8 pin dual op amp as the driver and the part costs 50 cents. It takes a little care to replace it as it is likely surface mounted. I am looking at the audio/jack board for a G-600 and there are a pair of transistors for some testing they do that could also be fried and might be the whole problem if the G-6 uses same or similar circuitry. The Fantom X6 uses very similar circuitry... Download service manual here:

http://elektrotanya.com/roland_fantom-x6.pdf/download.html

Scroll down to "get manual" and click to download. IGNORE other download links. On page 57 of 66 you will find the audio drivers at the right. They use little dual op amps M5218APF which probably are available someplace, however probably 4568's would work fine and are readily available. If you drove high voltage into the audio outs, I suspect first that the RF bypass caps such as C203 on the above schematic shorted. Simple to replace... pennies apiece... The test path transistors such as Q37 may also be shorted... Next would be IC18... While this circuit may not be the exact one for the G6 it probably is CLOSE as the several Rolands all seem to use similar circuitry. Regarding system SAFETY... Make sure ALL and I do mean ALL equipment interconnected including mixers, powered speakers, keyboards, etc. are powered from the SAME receptacle or power conditioning module to avoid accidents. Also for keyboards sent to mixers, USE DI boxes please! These protect against ground loops and these accidents.

I would like to connect my fantom g6 to logic and be able to play the sounds from logic through my fantom and record into logic.


If you hook it up with the USB cable Logic should recognise it. You may have to select it in the Audio Preferences as your Audio Interface.

Roland fantom g8, problem, The last 2 octaves do not issue sound


Read page 135 regarding the note range settings. Look also for keyboard split information. You may have the keyboard set to NOT play notes in the top octaves for the particular voice you are using.

I have a Fantom S keyboard. I have to press the the F above middle C a lot harder than the other keys to get any sound. How can I repair this?


Hard to say as they are a very complex machine. However have you tried a factory reset - check the manual - its a certain key/button combination. You will losse any special settings but glitches are often solved by a reset. Good luck Bruce

When i turn on the Fantom G8, it shows a blue screen with this message "Roland Fantom (S/W updator) (B)


Somehow you have activated the mode to download a new operating system into the unit. It likely is expecting the new SW to be presented form source such as MIDI, USB, or stick.

Get it out of that mode before something gets clobbered. DO a Factory reset which will consists of holding certain buttons and turning power on. Find this procedure in your user manual.
