Question about Roland BR900CD Digital Multitrack Recorder

1 Answer

No sound output when I play DEMO--neither on-screen, nor through headphones or stereo amplifier. Does this mean unit is defective, or am I doing something wrong? Just purchased used on E-BAY. First time user. Limited time to return if defective. Thanks.

Why does my lowrey organ not make a sound after I have switched it on?


This is a generic answer for this kind of question.
When there is no sound
Check the obvious.
Is there a light on the organ indicating it is on?
  • Plug it in to a known working wall socket, switch on at the wall
  • Switch on at the organ, check light
  • Very old keyboards need a voice to be selected!!
  • Turn master volume up
  • Turn any other volumes up
  • i.e. lower manual volume
  • upper manual volume
  • swell pedals down
Sometimes a sustain pedal plugged into a volume pedal socket will mute the output, check this.
Headphones out, most headphones will turn speakers off, sometimes the headphone switch can be dodgy, work the headphone plug in an out a few times
There maybe a switch that turns off the speakers, look near the output sockets
Software volumes up, check display, if any.
MIDI instruments, check local control is ON
Still no sound?
Can you hear anything from the speakers?
Hiss or hum usually means the speaker is ok
Total silence may indicate speaker failure, but only if there is one speaker, as in older home organs, or smaller keyboards
Try headphones next, TURN Down master volume first just in case!
If there is some sound, very quiet and gross distortion then possible power amplifier failure.
If your instrument has any kind of line out as well as a headphone jack, try these.
The line output will likely be a pair of phono sockets,like you have on HiFi equipment, 1/4 inch, 6.35mm jacks, like the bigger headphone connector, a 3.5mm socket like the smaller headphone connector, or even a DIN connector on older equipment.
Connect these to the aux (or Line or CD) input on your HiFi, guitar amp or similar. (some times these outputs will drive headphones, usually you will only hear anything in the left side). If this works then it is very likely the power amplifier.
Further tests on MIDI equipped keyboards would be to see if the MIDI does anything.
If MIDI out works and there is no sound, and MIDI in makes a sound this points to local being off, buried somewhere in the menu will be local on or off, make sure it is on.
If MIDI out doesn't work then the failure is likely to be internal power supply or something else critical (not nnecessarily major).
Power amplifier failures in newer, low power, keyboards are often the power amplifier chips (i.c,s), older amplifiers may have just blown their fuses but one or more output transistors may have failed.
Cost of repair will be down to the time it takes to get to the fault, taking these to bits and putting them back can take a lot longer than the repair.!
Hope this helps, Chris the Fader

Why won't my clavinova clp 150 play?


Hi, Could be a lot of different things.

Does it play through headphones?
If so this implies an amplifier issue.
Does it play when you press the demo button - if so it could be a keyboard issue.

Carry out a factory reset by holding down highest note whilst turning on. Watch screen does it report anything?

Let me know what it says and I will try and help.

Vox vt40+


that is because it is two different output channels. eventually you will blow the speaker or your amp. It wasn't designed to handle the impedance of an external speaker through the stereo
headphone jack. Are you sure that your speaker is hooked up or plugged in?

Voxmini 3 got sound with headphones plug in but no sound when unplugged


headphones plug in but no sound when unplugged means your output ic is working ,so check the headphone socket it may have loose solder or your socket itself may be defected. give it a try it always helped me.

I have a clavinova that doesn't make sound


Try the headphone jack... if there is sound there, then it is either the speaker amplifier or a loose cable. It would be rare for BOTH speakers to fail completely.

Fender Acoustisonic Jr. One day I played it at its highest volume, then turned it off. Came back to play it 20 min. later and it wouldn't make a sound. You can slightly hear the guitar buzzing when...


I would try using another speaker to see if you can get the sound back, this will help you narrow down the problem, you can also use the effect send to feed anothe amp to see if you get the sound OK.
It can be blown speaker or output stages,

Sound is only coming out of the left headphone when I play


Is this the same on all channels?

Check your 3.5 -> 1/4 adapter is stereo (2 black bands on the connector) and check you havent got it set to mono.

Try with different headphones too.

Hope that helps!

Fender Hot Rod Deluxe has very little sound, stuck and need help! Turn it on and all of tubes light up. Has a horrible muffled sound with volume at 5. Master volume can be put to any level, and it doesn't...


Just because tubes light up does NOT mean they are good or working... While heaters not lit are an indication of failure, teh reverse is not necessarily true.
Time to troubleshoot this... Plug a set of headphones into teh preamp out. See if audio there is clean... it will be low level using headphones and ONLY from one side as the output is mono and your headphones are stereo usually... If audio is clean here and not muffled, then problem is in power amp section else in the early stages of the unit.
Report back the results of this test...
