Question about Roland KC550 Amp Keyboard
My amp stopped working. When I turn it on, the blue standby light comes on, so the power connection is intact, i think. However, there is no sound at all, no matter what channel I plug into or how high i set the volume. I'm figuring it's a blown fuse, so I am currently trying to disassemble the amp, but I'm having trouble with that too, there doesn't seem to be any seams in the upholstered wood that encases the amp and speaker. Any help would be appreciated.

It sounds like your volume slider is dirty. Try carefully and judiciously spraying a good quality contact cleaner into the slider and working it. do not use a lot. It only takes a little. Also do not use WD40.

Check if headphone output is normal... sometimes the headphone jack switch fails and doesn't send to speakers when headphones are unplugged.

if it does not power up, then it means its having a power problem. it might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.
This unit must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the unit turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.
To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter in order to test the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.
Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.
I wish you the best of luck.

Sounds like you have a poor or open ground if the loud noise is 50 or 60 Hertz. If you have the loud noise when the keyboard not connected then the open ground is in the amp. Often times it is only a cold or bad solder connection which you can touch up with a solder iron and some rosin core solder. If the noise disappears when the keyboard is not connected then I would look at the patch cord first and the connectors second. If you have a second amp you can test to cord and keyboard to verify the problem is the keyboard. If you have to touch up the solder connections, unplug and open up the unit. Make sure all connectors or seated and none of them are loose. Use a grounded three prong solder iron and 60/40 rosin core solder. Heat up connections on the connector and add a small bit of solder to each connection. Next heat up the solder connections on the circuit board and quickly add some solder. Caution, do not apply to much heat on the circuit board or the copper trace will lift off the board so you need to use as little heat as possible just to start the solder to flow then let it cool.
