Try running a sewing needle around the edge of the covers to break the seal first. Careful use of an exacto knife works best.

Probably stuck to the varnish... carefully pry upward.

Keyboard AC Adapter

If thje voltage is the same, the current rating is fine at 1000-1400 mA. The accessory will use the amount of current it needs and the fact that there is more "available" does not mean it will use it. The higher current rating will not ruin the equipment. Just make sure the voltage rating is the same. Cheers!

How do you fix a stuck foot switch on a Digitech RP350 guitar processor?

You might want to take it apart and clean it. My bass player had problems like that and I took it apart to see if I could find out what was wrong, It looked like a mouse was living in there. Its amazing how much crap builds up in those things. Just pay close attention to what you take off so you dont have problems assembling it back together. Maybe even take pictures if your electronically challenged like me. otherwise the botton might be shot, hopefully not. good luck to ya, I hope I helped. peace!

We need to change battery

The battery should be located in the control cavity of the guitar. It is in the back of the bass. Usually 4 screws holding it on. Inside your 9v battery will be located. Good luck

My RV600 Reverb Machine won't turn on. I'm using a standard 9v adapter...Do I need the behringer one of is my pedal just broken? I bought it about and hour ago.

Did you check the polarity of the adapter? The effect box uses inner pin for negative and outer barrel is positive which is oppsite from most consumer electronics.

My ltd deluxe ec-1000(vintage black) is not producing any distortion on my Marshall mg100hdfx. this is the first time i have had an active pickup guitar, i put a new 9v battery in it but still no change in...

Distortion is not produced in the guitar. Distortion is generated in the amp by circuitry that increses the gain until the waveforms "flat top". This creates higher harmonics and a buzzy sound. If you are getting a very low output from your guitar it is possible that you don't have enough output to get the distortion in the amp to work. Other settings in the guitar add harmonics by mixing more than one pickup. This is not ditortion but adding these harmonics changes the sound immensly.

I have a CDP-100 and need disassembly instructions for access to internal keyboard assembly. Unit was dropped while unloading from car. Now some keys are akimbo and won't play as though they are off their...

I just fixed my CDP 100 which had a similar problem - dropped and two keys not working up one end.
1. Lay keyboard upside down on soft surface. Under keyboard is plastic cover held on by 17 screws. Remove all these and lift cover away. The metal key ends are all revealed.
2. Locate the disloged keys. Carefully press them back into position - they will "click" into place. Make sure the corresponding key on the keyboard isn't stuck in an "up" position - you may have to remove the metal key part and replace it again while making sure the key is correctly seated.
3. Replace cover and screws.

I'm think about buying an alexi 200 guitar, but i want to replace the esp pick up for an emg 81. Is there a place for the battery the pickup will require?

There should be enough room inside for the battery. If there isn't you could do some routing to the body to make it fit. I personally don't have this guitar but more than likely you can position the 9v battery to fit. To keep it from moving around, you can put a piece of sponge in the cavity.
