    I have the same exact problem with my td-5, I have an after market power supply and I get the "analog test error" with NO sound at all. The light is stuck on the High hat. Any good news?

    Excact same problems as Mike is having with his, only mine came with a boss adapter and worked fine for almost 2 months and then one day the analog error test showed up and the hi-hat input started going berzerk. unfortunatley I remedied the problem by purchasing a td6-v, but now that I know it could just be an adapter issue im glad i kept it in my arsenal

You must get a Roland or Boss B.R.A. adapter, I just got mine from Sweetwater for 27.00 or something like that, fixed the problem completely, no 3rd party adapters, it's rigged so you must buy theirs, If you use a 3rd party adapter, it will fire up, and run "analog" test error there after. I hope this helps somebody. Peace Out!!

My mercedes e class 54 reg had power down my stereo I change the fuse power came back but it shows mute mode does not give any sound when my engineer put on his computer its works then mute again

Hands free mute is caused by a switch grounding the radio , if you have a hands free kit it is permanently grounding causing MUTE , if it's a short to ground check wiring loom in car always test loom with a multimeter

FCan get my Ipod to play through my Roland TD-20 Mudule

You need to get yourself a cable - with a 3.5mm male jack plug on one end (which will fit into your ipod), and a 1/4 inch male jack plug on the other end.

(you could use a lead with a 3.5mm male plug on each end, and used a 3.5mm female to 1/4 inch male adaptor to achieve this)

Connect the 3.5mm end into the ipod - play a track, with the volume at say, 75%.

Connect the 1/4 inch end of the cable to the 'Mix In' input in the back of your TD20.

Use the 'Mix In' control - at the top right hand side of your TD-20 module to control the volume.

If you wish only to have the iPod going to (for example) headphones - and not Front Of House (PA) speakers - which you will have connected via the Master and / or Direct Out(s); this can be achieved in the 'Mixer' settings (accessed via pressing the 'Mixer' button).

Roland spd 20 analog test error+reason

The adaptor for the SPD-20 is not 12 V ac (Altern Current) the SPD-20 need only Altern current (12V AC)
if the adaptor is 12 v cc, the internal circuits can not made +5v , 0, -5v
for simetrical operactional supply.
And Spd 20 show "Analog test err" and "batery low"

Let me clarify whats happening here. When I put it in Surround mode, or DSP mode, the buttons do light up, but there is no sound. If I push the Analog Direct button it does light up as well and it does...

With no specific model mentioned it's hard to look in a manual for recommendations or visualize what possible switch may be out of place.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Source Selection, Mute, Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through defect or idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

The headphones output on my roland td- 10 is sending sound just to a single channel ,I test it with diferent headphones ,same thing.

The owners manual is here: Try initializing the TD-10. Check page 137. Check page 132 and 133. If the problem is still there, you likely have a jack problem. There might be a bad solder joint where the jack is mounted to the circuit board. If the warranty is up you can do it yourself if you are confident. Otherwise take the module in to have it serviced. Check here to contact Roland:

Green Plaid lines on Samsung HLR5067wax/xaa-

These are the Tests that should be run to determine which board is bad.You should call a good TV Tech if you are not familiar with this TV.
- The DDP1011 on the DMD board has a feature to display internal test patterns.
- DNle, which is an end port in the digital board, has a feature to display internal test patterns.
- The analog board sends signals to ADV7402 on the digital board.
- The analog board is the first output and the digital board is the second one, followed by DMD, which is the final one.
■ Diagnosis By Module
1. Access Service Mode
(In Standby mode, press "Mute", "1", "8", "2" and "Power" to turn the screen on and enter service mode)
2. Check if there is an error in the DMD board
DDP1011 → TEST PATTERN → Press the right arrow key:
Options of FULL WHITE, BLACK, RED, GREEN and BLUE PATTERN are displayed on the screen.
If "Pattern" does not appear, this is a DMD board error.
3. Check if there is an error in the digital board before the DMD.
When the DMD board has been determined to be error free based on the test patterns:
FACTORY MODE → DNIe → TEST PATTERN normal display: no error in the digital board.
If "Pattern" does not appear, it may be from a DMD board or ATI error or there is an analog board malfunction.
4. Check if there is an error in the analog board.
Check for a power signal from the analog to the digital boards
