Well, you might try:

The supply has a three pin connector and supplies +10 and -10 volts at unknown current. Don't have a pinout.

I am sure you can cobble something up if you can''t find the ACH120 official power supply.

You would need to find the pinout polarity to connect power if you have to make your own. One would taake unit apart and trace those input wires to something that would define the polarity. First find ground, then look for input filter caps which will tell you the polarity on the pins.

Can't get this Roland adapter model ACH-120.


I see that´s a pretty expensive power supply.

option 1: buy an equivalent power supply and adapt the cord.
IN: AC 120V 60Hz 12W
OUT: DC +10 V 500mA
DC -10 V 150mA

option 2: Build a new power supply by a kit
something like this:
http://electronics-lab.com/projects/power/011/DUAL%20VOLTAGE%20POWER%20SUPPLY.JPG

Change the 7812 and 7912 by 7810 and 7910. you will get the 10V needed.

option 3: you can try to repair the power supply. check if there is no broken wires or a blown thermal fuse in the transformer.

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.

I got a roland jx-1 keyboard with no power supply. i tried radio shack power supply (12v - 500ma) as mentioned at the back of the keyboard and i was able to turn it on but couldn't hear any sounds..plz...


search google for "JX-1 FACTORY RESET". If that does not help, try your headphones. If that neither, you blew the Audio Power Amp circuit. Take it to a Tech. Good luck !!

Hello,

I guess that Roland needs a supply specs about 12VDC at 800mA to 1A with the center tip as + and ring of adapter as - better to use with 12Vdc at 1A, IMHO, hope this helps.

Roland r8 has flashing green light


Are you using the correct AC adapter? An aftermarket unit will do this if the power is insufficient, or the polarity is wrong (- / +). If you're using an aftermarket unit, it may not be providing the right amount of Amps and Voltage to the unit; causing the display to blink. You can try this cord to help: http://www.powerpayless.com/ac-power-adapter-for-roland-r-8-r8-drum-machine.html

My Roland G70 power up problem. .


Open up the Roland G-70 and check if all the connectors and flatcables are well seated. Check also if the power supply is working as supposed to.

My Roland will not power up at all. Not sure if it is the power supply or the handsonic itself.


Test the power supply with a meter. It should be 9 volts DC and it rated at 2 to 2.5 amps (2000 to 2500 ma)

Backlight on my Roland D50 does not show up when powered up.All that happens is that the screen changes from black to a very feint yellowy green and there is no sound at all from the synth .... any ideas?...


This sounds like you have a failure in the power supply. This could be due to a bad solder joint or a failed component. The part cost should be minimal.

The backlight sounds like it is not getting the full voltage. The electronics mostly will run on 5 volts DC. Below about 4.75 volts things just won't work.
