Of course it is repairable.

Find a competent repair person. You did not describe the "noise". If it is 60 cycle hum, the filter caps need replacing. If it is an organ tone, then probably a key contact is stuck.

I have a lowrey m-375 organ. The lower keyboard works sometimes and other times it just doesn't make any noise at all. Very rarely the upper keyboard cuts out but never for long, any ideas? thanks


These older units like this usually inherit intermittent problems like this from sitting up and gathering dust. There are many switches and relays inside this model, and other electrical connections that would get dirty or corroded over the years. I think a good professional servicing would fix this.

Turn on the organ and get a loud hum.......


Chances are you're hearing "60-Hertz" hum that comes from poor filtering in the organ power supply. Electronic circuits need direct current (DC) but our power lines supply alternating current (AC). The power supply converts the AC to the various DC voltages needed. Parts called filter capacitors smooth out the voltage, and if they go bad or lose contact because of bad connections the result can be the hum you're hearing.

There are other possible causes, but the filtering is so common it's a good place to start. You don't give the age of this organ, but if it's one that has been around a while, it's a good bet some of those capacitors are worn out.

If you can post a follow-up with a make and model, I'll check some of the technician groups and see if anybody has service information.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

Lowrey organ C# and D# on both keyboards don't work. Fixable?


We can only guess what model you might have and whether it is tube or solid state.

If it is a vacuum tube type, probably one tube is burned out... likely either a 12AX7 or maybe a 12AT7 as a guess.

If it is solid state and the unit has not been moved to cause a loose connector, better to call a tech. If it has been moved, you could look for a loose connector.

User's manual for the Lowrey Organ Holiday Deluxe w/Magic Genie?


Here is a site to download manual:

http://www.lowreyforum.com/lowreymanuals.htm

A Leslie is special speaker system that is spun to break up the sound so it doesn't seem to come from a single point.

Sometimes the Leslie speaker is in a seperate cabinet fromthe organ, and SOMETIMES it is a simulated Leslie that is done with multiple speakers and electronic switching. If the Leslie is an external one, it usually attaches via a cable that often has either 9, 11, or 13 pins.

Lowrey catillion organ with loud static noise


Try posting on the organforum.com.

It sounds like the power amp has a problem. Probably filter capacitors have gone bad.

Our Genie Lowrey 44 organ does absolutely nothing when turned on. Could it be a fuse that has blown? I've had this organ since about 1980 and never had a problem with it before, Thank you.


A little more info is needed here. Are there any lights on this unit at all? Are there some normally? If so, then yes check the main fuse. If not accessable externally, it should be located close to where the power cord enters the unit. Check it (when unplugged please!!!).

If that failes to resolve it, please let me know and I'll research the specific model in the meantime.

Thanks,
Dan

Need a fuse for a lowrey-genie organ-44


If the fuse blew, it is for a reason. Probably shorted filter capacitors.
