Take it to a Battery World shop or a similar one that only deals in all types of batteries. They will solve it quickly. Or you could go to any of their websites and ask them the question.
Good Luck

Some possibilities:
  • Damaged on the DC-IN socket.
  • Broken solder joints on the center pin of the DC IN socket (see figure: pin 1 on DC208B).
  • Damaged (broken) in D2 or R54

I have a Yamaha PSRE413. on/off does not work with adaptor, but works with batteries

If you are using the correct adaptor then the most likely reason is that the socket where the adaptor plugs in has broken away from the circuit board and will need to replaced/resoldered.

if you need a socket Google : Yamaha PSR power socket ( KPA3 / PA130UK / EPA3 ) (LB30226R)

OR if you have used the wrong mains adaptor and the polarity was reversed you may have damaged the diodes / voltage regulator on the power input.

My P85 simply won't turn on. I have tried two different adaptors. Neither work yet they are functioning with other keys. Please help. I have a gig on Sunday

What adapters have you tried? The P85 REQUIRES a 12 VAC adapter, NOT the common DC type and it needs a 1.5 amp (1500 ma) type adapter. If you connected a DC adapter it will NOT do damage, the unit just won't work. You can find adpaters on Ebay or Google search.

My adaptor use to work fine now it wont work I found out it was the piece on the back where the adaptor plugs into, If I jiggle it and move it sometimes the power light will come on but it works fine with...

You can get that fixed if you can find someone who can solder. The jacks wear out over time on a lot of things. The jacks themselves are worth about $1 but it is the labour to open the case and solder a new one in.

The contacts in the jacks are spring loaded so these can wear or get damaged etc. So eventually they won;t make good contact and you get your problem. You see this a lot on laptops. You can twist or apply pressure on the plug until you get it to power up. This is more luck than anything when it works and eventually it will get to a point where it won;t connect anymore. This really is a simple repair but finding someone to solder the new jack in is the problem.

I have a behringer 16 channel board . the 2nd aux send in not working as of last week. What's the general problem that happens when an aux send stops working?.................

I don't believe this board has an "Aux send IN" jack. There are "Aux Send" and Aux Return.

The Aux returns are TRS jacks.

Make sure ALL interconnected equipment are powered from the SAME receptacle or source to avoid damage to equipment.

You might clarify the exact name of the in or out that is not working. I have schematics to help troubleshoot the problem.

Dln't have a plug for an mk928 keyboard

You would be safe with a 12 volt DC adapter of 1 amp capacity.

YOU MUST match the polarity and I can't find if the center pin is positive or negative. It SHOULD be marked on the case near the plug for the power in.
Use a bright light and see if the pin or the shell is shown as + or -
Notes this is the only critical thing to get right once you have a 12 volt DC adapter that fits the jack.

Noisy when I use with 9v charger and is not

The posts on this site will help: I had trouble finding the correct schematic but the one here: should give you an idea of what I am talking about. Using a volt ohm meter on the D.C. volts scale ,hook up the black probe to the circuit ground. Make sure to use the correct adapter as a variation in the current output. ma will blow your pedal up. The diode in the schematic with one end hooked to ground protects the circuit from adapters that are wired backwards. It is the first thing you want to check. You will have to perform a diode test. Hopefully your meter has this function. If the diode is O.K. and you can get the correct voltage ( polarity, milliamps etc.) into the circuit, have a look at the schematic. Test each I.C. for voltage at pin 8. Depending on what I.C.s are in your pedal you can find the defective one by testing for voltage at the supply pin and then the other pins of each I.C. If you find voltage at a pin that should only be carrying signal you probably have found a defective one.For instance, in the sample schematic, pin 2 of IC 1a should have no voltage present such as 9 volts for instance. Test all the diodes, test all the ICs. If they are all fine you will have to test each transistor. The info on how to do all this as well as the pin outs are all available on the internet. After you find the defective part or parts test any parts that are hooked to them in the circuit as well as they may have failed or caused the other part to fail. Before I got an oscilloscope I had to unsolder a lot of parts to test them with a VOM, a transistor tester and a capacitor tester. The repairs paid for the scope. Let me know how you make out. I don't work on effects that much any more as my eyesight is failing but I might be able to steer you in the right direction. If you decided at this point that you don't want to try the repair, take it to a good musical instrument repair place and have it fixed. Vintage pedals are getting to be worth a lot of money and they usually sound better than the reissues.

Power input needle snapped on Casio CTK 1000

The answer is repair shop if you don't have tools or experience with soldering. If you do it is simple to take it apart and take the old supply jack out. Take it to an electronic parts supplier so they can match a new one up for you. Make sure that the holes in the circuit board are clean and free of broken pins. Make sure that the traces leading to the holes are intact. Do not use too much heat or they will separate from the board. It might help to take the adapter with you as the jacks and plug have to match in size.
