Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Roland D-50 music sythesizer keyboard. It's old(80's) but has a lot of good sounds and I'd like to know if it's possible to get a service manual for it. I've never used these forums before and am not sure if I'm doing it right. I didn't see anything in the "Pick an Expert" drop down list that matched what I'm looking for so I don't know what to enter in it. Please let me know if you need any more information from me. Do I need to register? How much will it cost if you can find the service manual for me to download? Is this an appropriate request? I would appreciate your response very much. Vern

Why wont my roland JW 50 keyboard turn on. I have the correct adapter. Has a circuit blown or what could need replacing?

Does it have a place for batteries? If so try that. If that works then you know something is wrong with adapter, or connector. Have you made sure you have the polarity correct on the adaptor. Generally the center is positive, but not always. Do you have a miltimeter to test the voltage on the adaptor, 9 volt sounds low on a device like that. Try those an get back to post.

I have a roland xp-50 with no power at all. What should I try?

I would start by checking AC cord is good, look for a blown fuse (BE CAREFUL !!!!) or maybe a defective OFF/ON switch. This keyboard is from the mid 1990's so PLEASE consider this before having it expertly repaired. $$$$$$$

I have a very loud hiss/buzz sound coming from my Roland. It goes away if I lower the high volume knob. This just starred to happen recently. I tried changing connections from ch1-4 but no fix.

If this ties to a keyboard, make sure the keyboard and this are BOTH plugged into the same receptacle. You should send a higher level from the keyboard (turn volume up to around 70% or so) and use less volume at the input gain of this amp. Use more at master volume if the amp has one if needed. If the hiss is there with NO input cables plugged in and input gains at 50%, that is objectionable, the amp probably needs servicing. Unused channel gains should be clear down.

Need to replace black keys on Korg triton. Is it a major job to take the keyboard apart and replace the keys? In Bermuda there is very limited repair resources. I have replaced keys before on my old...

Typically lots of screws to remove. Be careful unplugging any ribbon cables. The cables are easily damamged by exerting force on just the edges.

Have new parts available BEFORE taking it apart for repair.

Roland keyboard. Extremely static-y speakers. Cuts out.

It sounds like your volume slider is dirty. Try carefully and judiciously spraying a good quality contact cleaner into the slider and working it. do not use a lot. It only takes a little. Also do not use WD40.
