I would need a little more detailed description of the issue however I assume you plugged in the power AC adapter and "it shorted out" the Roland unit. did you use the correct AC adapter? Many time the original unit is lost and an alternate is used which is not of the same configuration. Let me know.

How do I fix a Roland Digital Piano FP-8 that has refused to play sounds despite the fact that it displays lights?

If everything lights up and responds to button pushes like normal, and you've done a hard reset as described in the manual, check to see if you have sound out of the headphone jack. It's most likely not a user serviceable problem and will need to go to the shop, but it will probably be the output amp rather than the main board.

When I plug the damper pedal into my Roland ep 77 the damper comes on and stays on no matter if the pedal is pressed or not pressed.

Try plugging in the pedal with the Roland powered down or off. With the pedal plugged in, turn the Roland on again. The Roland should sense the polarity upon power up. If this doesn't work, I have had those pedals get defective right out of the box, so try this...Get a ¼ inch guitar or signal cable and plug that into the damper jack. The cable will represent an open circuit polarity since nothing is shorting out the leads. See if the EP77 is sustaining or if it is not. Alternately, try shorting the guitar cable by laying a piece of metal across the top and bottom of the jack. A pocket or kitchen knife or any bare wire will do. If this does not work, your assumption about the power supply may be correct.

Boss js-8 buzzing

This is often caused by poor earth lead connections or pour quality screen cable being used to the inputs of the amp input.

Cable on dp 10 is damaged...can I replace

It looks like the cable terminates into a 1/4" stereo or 3 wire plug.

Best: I recommend going to Radio shack or an audio store and buying a 1/4" stereo plug/ with cable that has one end loose and attaching the loose end to your foot pedal. I do not know why it is stereo unless there are 2 pedals but if so ,you will need to determine which wire works on which pedal so leave pedal cover loose until you test it. I have replaced these before.
OK method: The cable can be spliced using solder and heat shrink to isolate the wires. Use probably 1//8 to 3/16" shrink for the wires and 1/4" to 3/8" shrink over the whole job. Keep each wire separate by color type.If the wire is too hard to twist it may be a special type that can be connected using terminal strips(radio shack has them) or use wire nuts and tape them.

My headphones wont work with my roland keyboard

Without knowing what brand headphones you have it is hard to know what to advise... HOWEVER if your headphones have a small plug (1/8 inch) you must use a STEREO type 1/8 to 1/4 inch adapter. If you use a mono, that will short out the output of at least one side.

Hi, just purchased the JS8 from the States (I'm in Australia), and power connection is, I assume, an American one. Can you please advise which converter I need to purchase so I can operate this unit in...

If you are on 220 there, just get a 220 to 110 TRANSFORMER type step down. You don't need a very big one, then you can use the supplied convertor. DO NOT use one that is intended for hair dryers type appliances.

How do i connect my roland D5 keyboard to my pc

What kind of sound card do you have in your PC? Generally you can plug into the line in jack using a stereo RCA to 1/8" stereo plug cord with !/4" adapters on the RCA plugs. Then run from the !/4" left and right output jacks on your D5 to the !/8" line in on your sound card.
