Question about Roland Music

Open Question

Where can I buy a motherboard for a Roland Fantom X7 OTHER than Roland?

Is there someone out there who makes this board? Roland wants $700. I just a motherboard from Japan like any other board. Any suggestions?

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!

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.

Troubleshoot the problem to the bad component(s). Electrolytic caps are readily available. They must be installed with correct polarity. Any leakage needs to be flushed off the board with distilled water and dried thouroughly before applying power after the repair.

Contact Roland directly. Speak to their customer service department in your country. I beleive this is the info-

If it's just a parts availablitiy problem, remember that Roland is a world wide company. Contact Roland in other markets, starting close to you and expanding out. Somebody will have it. I'm in the USA and often source parts from Canada, for instance.
If the instrument is truely dead, you can always sell it for parts to other users. Ebay would be a good option.

I have a Roland KR 4500 Digital Piano and I brought it to the local authorized Roland Service Center here in the Detroit area. Apparently the capacitors on the motherboard leaked and the board is tot


You can sometimes clean up the board with a cotton swab and some alcohol. Trace the lines for continuity with a multimeter making sure there are no breaks. Get the information on the capacitors and buy them at an electronic parts store. Replace them or have a professional do it. If all fails, sell it for parts.

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.
