How to fix 13 pin cable for GK-2A....

I have 13 pin cable for GK-2A and i try to cut in a half then i soldered again, there is a signal when i play the Gr-30 when i tune my guitar but the problem is there is no output sound, i'm sure that my only problem is the 13 pin cable, is there any adviced from you guys?? i've done this before, the cutting of cable and try to re-connect again but there is no sound, but when i bought new cable the problem is fixed. why is this happened when i try to fix the old 13 pin cable is no out sound? is there any secret about this 13 pin cable? especially when you cutting this in a half??????

I have the same problem with the cable only recognizing the tuner. But I still do not hear any sounds. Any suggestions other than the obvious. I have tried all of the troubleshooting suggestions I can find. Something just doesn't make sense

You must be making an error in splicing the cable.
Possible problems:

1. There is an overall shield that you have cut and not restored.

2. You tried to add cable length and did not use the same exact cable. For some stuff, the cable is MORE than just connecting wires... we may have twisted pair that MUST be used for certain lines in the cable. Or a tiny coaxial cable with a shield.

3, Failure to connect the correct wires.

4. Poor soldering and insulating resulting in broken connections or shorted connections.

5. Exceeding the length that the circuitry is capable of driving.

How do I troubleshoot a 'no signal' issue?


It sounds as if the 1/4" jack has become faulty. The only other thing would be a cord with a break in the interior wire, causing and intermittent connection and signal transfer. I have had this happen with repeated stage use. I tested the cord with an ohm meter attached to each end of the cord wire and starded bending the cord, going from one end to the other. Mine was broke about 4" from one end and would loose signal with the slightest motion. I cut the cable about 6" past that point and re-soldered the wire and still use the fixed cable. Good Luck

Marshall Amp Quit


According to the schematic, once the signal is initially amplified (also where the LED shows signal), the audio is sent to the send/return jacks (shown on pg3-C7). A quick test to see if audio exists at the insert point will require an insert cable. An insert cable can be a balanced 1/4" cable which splits out to two mono 1/4" connectors or a pair of RCA's. Connect one of the insert outputs to a console (if 1/4" cable) or a tape loop on a home stereo receiver (if send cable splits out to RCA's) and see if you've got sound when playing your guitar (with LED on the Marshall showing signal). If no sound, go to (A) below. If you have sound, go to (B) below.
(A) Ten pin connector labelled CON2 (shown on pg5-B1). Make sure connector is tightly seated and that the pins on the jack and the female connectors in the plug are clean and that good contact is being made.
(B) Twelve pin connector labelled CON1 (shown on pg5-B4). This is the DFX board - make sure this is tight and well seated.

According to the schematic there are voltages seen at several of the connection points previously mentioned. If you have a multimeter and are qualified and careful - check to make sure the voltages are present as shown.

If you're not qualified - meaning you have little or no experience - STOP and refer this repair to a qualified bench tech. They get paid to keep the magic smoke inside the amplifier. You may end up damaging things worse or even beyond repair or even damaging yourself.

Headphone jack will not send audio through any cable. There must be something wrong with the motherboard chip.


Did you check the solder connection on the jack where it connects to the motherboard? That's a high stress point and could simply be a broken contact that needs to be resoldered. Should be 3 or 4 pins likely.

I have a Gallien Krueger Backline 600 head rigged to a GK Blackloine 410 BLX-II cab. There is a crackle sound emitting from all the speakers, so I'm guessing there is something wrong with the head. Have...


i) If the crackle is there with all input signal cables removed, then likely to be the head.

ii) Does the crackle vary noisily with control settings? If so, move noisy control to & fro about 10 times to wipe any dirt from internals (temporary solution).

iii) If ii) is not a problem, then tap head casing to check whether a dry solder joint or poor internal connection is the cause. Was unit dropped?

iv) If none of the above, then suspect possible component breakdown.

My Yamaha PRS-293 will not play any of the E keys or the Bflat keys. I reset it once (power up while holding the highest note key) which fixed it once. Now it won't fix it. The MIDI plays all of the notes.


The key switches are scanned as a matrix. One of the matrix wires has broken or connector/cable is not making it... It will be a connection in common with the non-working keys.

Here is schematic:

http://elektrotanya.com/yamaha_psr-293_sm.pdf/download.html

On page 40 on the board labelled 61H-MK and the connector DMLCD-CN401 the connections to pins 11 and 12 with signal names N14 and N24 have become broken or disconnected before they get to the processor board.

Since these lines are NEAR an edge, the cable could be not quite in the connector at one end or the other. These two wires are what triggers the E and the A# key signals. There are TWO contacts per key as one closes first then the other... this is how they measure key velocity.

Zoom 9030 works well after all these years there is a memory battery that needs to be changed every 5 years or so. The only problem is when I plug in the 8050 foot controller it won't change any patches...


It is LIKELY that one or more pins and or wires in the remote cable are broken.

These MINI DIN connectors are "tender" and are easily broken and wires flex at the back of the connector and are broken.

FIRST check that all pins are present at BOTH ENDS of the cable.

NEXT use an ohmmeter to check continuity of each and every pin end-to-end. I suspect you will find one or more broken.

Be aware that repairing this cable requires patience and steady hand as the pins are so close together it is easy to have solder bridges, etc. Sometimes just opening the connectors are a problem to access the pins. Sometimes the cables are MOLDED and those are UNREPAIRABLE other than cutting off the bad conector and replacing it. You can usually buy replacement connectors at DIGIKEY.com and or Mouser.com. You have to CAREFULLY select the apporpriate pin configuration from the catalog page. One needs a small soldering iron and magnifying glass to work on the cable.

USUALLY the wires go from pin to pin. Also a shield on the cable has to be dressed and connected usually. You may find the shell of the connector tied to a pin or just the sheild of the cable.

Hi Hat pedal not fuctioning


Obviously the hi hat trigger does not function properly, it either does not generate enough signal, or the signal doesn't come thru well, or the signal comes thru well but it doesn't trigger the sound unit properly.

This could be caused by:

- too low input sensitivity setting on the sound unit for the hi hat input
- a displaced or loosely fixed sensor (trigger) on the hi hat
- a partially damaged sensor
- a bad wire connection at the sensor
- a bad wire connection at the sensor connector
- a dirty contact on the sensor connector
- a dirty contact on the cable connector at either side of the cable
- a bad cable, a broken wire or poorly soldered wire in the cable connector at either side of the cable
- a dirty contact on the input connector of the sound unit
- a bad solder connection on the input connector of the sound unit (inside the unit)
- a bad solder contact on a component or a faulty component associated to that particular input in the sound unit (capacitors, resistors, diodes, transistors, ICs, etc.)

To rule out a damaged cable, just change it and see if the hi hat works ok with another cable, if it does, the cable was damaged.

If the sensors are interchangeable , try to swap the sensor with a sensor from another cymbal, see if the other sensor works well, if it doesn't, then the sensors are not the problem.

To see if there is a problem with the input on the sound unit, connect another cymbal to that input, if it works well, the input is not the problem, if it still doesn't work, check sensitivity/trigger level setting, check connector contacts for any dirt, check connector and component solder contacts inside the unit.

Also, try to connect the hi hat to another input on the sound unit, if it doesn't work well after that, there's a problem with your hi hat (sensor, wires, dirty connector on the sensor), if it works well instead, then there's a problem with the hi hat input on the sound unit (sensitivity/trigger level, dirty connector contacts, bad solder contacts, damaged components)

Another thing: try your hi hat connected as is, but have someone move the cable connectors while you play it.
If moving the cable connector at the sensor side results in a change of operation (it might start working well for an instant or so), you definitely have a problem with that connection (check for bad wires in sensor connector, cable connector and for dirt on both connectors' pins).

If moving the cable connector at the sound unit input side results in a change of operation, then there's a problem with that connection (check for bad solder points on the input connector inside the sound unit, check for bad wires in cable connector, check for dirt on both connectors' pins).

I hope you can fix it, otherwise just post me some feedback if anything seems unclear, i'll be glad to assist you.

regards

have you got valves fitted to the amp as they can cause fading if old >damaged >not fittted properly also check the speaker connects and try playing half volume the output should be steady.. you say its handmade if you made it pull out the amp board and check your soldering joints look to see fi there is any that need resoldering as they may be getting hot and causing a resistor to fade..

Crate flexwave 120 head sound cuts out


You have a broken solder joint. You'll have to disassemble the amp enough to get at the soldered side of the circuit board that the controls are mounted to and touch up any suspect solder joints. Just be sure to resolder only the joints that were originally soldered or need to be soldered. Hope this helps.

Roland GK-2A pickup. g string does not respond


I have the same problem. Only the 1st, 3rd and 5th strings respond. This is not a sensitivity adjustment. The unit does not see the strings. I called Roland and was able to purchase just the pickup itself rather that the entire GK-3. The pickup was about $35 but took 4 weeks to arrive. When it finally got here I was excited. It was not difficult to remove the old and replace it with the new. I plugged it in. NOTHING CHANGED! I believe and hope it ti the 13-pin cable. I have read where these cables are just poorly made and many users have spent a considerable sum on the cable, most recommending having one in reserve always as they are sure to go out.
