Question about Bontempi Speak and Play Computer Organ

1 Answer

The wiring to the jack was pulled out of the bottom of the microphone for the Bontempi Speak and Play Computer Organ. I'm trying to reconnect the two wires (one red, one green) to the switch inside the microphone. I tried connecting one wire to each the two screw/post that secure the switch inside the microphone. That didn't work. Do you have any schematics or diagrams of how I should reconnect the wires?

No the wires are soldered on to two connections under the switch ,but if its been pulled out it may have pulled the connection out with the cable ??

I believe organ hasn't been played or even turned on in over 10 years. The top keyboard plays if I turn on a setting such as piano or trumpet however I can't just get the organ keys to play.


Since the organ has not been used for a long time, I suspect that there can be degradation of the electronics, specially with electrolytic capacitors. hence I request you to switch on the Organ continuously and allow it to warm up, it there is improvement , then it will be worth to remove the bottom panel and clean up the boards,dry the PCB with a hair dryer and reconnect the boards.
Hope this will help.

How do i fix my iPhone so the receiver can here me when i talk


1.Unplug anything plugged into the headset jack.
2.If you're on a call and holding your phone next to your ear, speak into the microphone and make sure you don't block it with your fingers or shoulder.
3.If you're using a screen protector or case that covers the microphone, remove it. Clear any debris from the microphones.
4.Restart your device.
5.Update to the latest version of iOS.

Test the microphone
To find out if there is an issue with the microphone itself-and not the app you're using or your cellular connection-test the microphone with the built-in Voice Memos app. Speak into the microphone and then play back the recording. You should be able to hear your voice clearly.

*If you can't hear your own voice the microphone is not working properly, you should replace the piece of hardware.

Mixer will only play through one speaker; this is same with organ, microphone and ipod connected. Swopping jacks results in speakers swopping proving that woring is good, but mixer will not play both...


Sounds to me like either an open wire or a blown speaker. I would highly recommend not operating it until it is fixed before you blow the amp. Tapping a 9V battery across the speaker (disconnected from amp) will cause a noise in the speaker, if not it is a broken wire or bad speaker. Good Luck

My head phone works very good but the microphone doesn't work


When you say headphones do you mean the music headphones, like speakers, because they go in the headphone jack in the computer while microphones go in the microphone jack. The microphone is normally a pink color and the headphone jack is normally green. If you already knew this try wiggling the microphone to see if there is a brake in the wire, if that dose not make it fissile in and out then its something wrong with the microphone its self and should be replaced

Broken volume pedal on bontempi 24110008 organ.pedal wont stay in up position.


There MAY be a counterbalance spring that is missing or broken AND there HAS to be a friction device to hold the position. You should be able to remove the pedal assembly to analyze and repair it.

It may involve just tightening whatever is suppose to create the friction to hold the pedal.

PROPER MICROPHONE FOR A CHURCH CHOIR


What you want is a directional microphone.More specific, probably a microphone with what is called a super-cardioid pattern...it only picks up what is directly in front of it. A couple of these may help. As far as filtering out the organ, this is difficult to do with just a microphone,..that is moe a job of a mixing engineer who runs a sound board, and even with the proper equipment, and knowledge, still isn't easy. best thing to do is have the organist turn down the volume a little, to get a well balanced mix between the vocalists and the organ...
