Question about Roland Spd-S Sampling Percussion Pad System

Open Question

Replacing sensors on a PAD-80

I have sometimes answers (work/ not work) from three out of eight sensors on my Roland PAD-80. I opened the casing and when I triggered them from the backside, all are working! It seems to have also two extra sensors inside, connected, but when I triggered these, nothing occurs.I wanna know how to remove the pads and if I can use the two spare sensors to replace the faulty ones. Thanks!

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.
Here Roland US support contact.

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.

Pad sound not geting

the trigger may have gone bad - I'm actually on line now looking for replacement parts.
open up the unit and that part looks like a coin, attached to a wire.
