2 CHEAP guitars that are AWESOME with GREAT reviews (I have them both and have been playing for over 30 yrs) :
- Squier Affinity Series Telecaster Special Electric Guitar (average $199) Solid playing and sounding guitar.

- Epiphone Les Paul Special I P90 Electric Guitar ($129) This has P90s in it! They sound SO GOOD.

I would replace either of these ASAP if one broke.

Guitar manufacturers use generally one of two different knob types: (1) knob has a small set screw of some type holding it on or (2) press fit onto the shaft of the tuneing pot (volume knob in your case).
Now, the problem is if it is NOT a set screw type, it is press fit. You see press fit used most of the time on lower-end instruments (and a few high end). The BEST way to get a stuck volume know off is to get a shoe string, loop part of it under the knob, brace the guitar firmly and PULL SLOWLY WITH FORCE. Realize that it is possible to damage the guitar if you **** on the string too hard.
I have never seen where a stuck know did not come off (or hear of someone breaking their guitar doing it).
I have also resorted to using a small screwdriver: work it way under the know and gently twist it to loosen it so it can be pulled off with a string or your hands.
Be carefull not to scratch your guitar!
Good luck,

I'm an engineer, not a musician. The device is a frequency meter set up to display the musical note input to it. If you pluck a C flat and it shows an A you need to tune your instrument till it shows a C flat. You will have to refer to the manual for operation and modes.

Almost all these plastic "wonders" have a set of screws... sometimes they are hidden under rubber feet OR under labels. When these are out, often there are little plastic protrusions that mate to depressions in the opposite site that have to be popped open. The key is to go slow and NOT to exert too much force. Sometimes they "hide" screws in the battery compartments as well. Often when you open these devices they go sproing and the little plastic buttons fall out of the front cover, so NOTE where they go. Rotating knobs often must be pulled off the shaft

I am repairing a Digitech QM156 for a friend - someone has been
stuffing with the trimpots - so it's way out of calibration. RV9 on the current sensor board, corrects the zero (most systems have this as an external control. However the volts range etc is way out of whack. Does anyone know what each pot is supposed to do??
Don't want to junk a perfectly good instrument.

To verify, often the voltage is stamped on the back of the keyboard, near the power jack. Should say 9V

It sounds like your ROM battery, which the ROM contains and stores the patches for the keyboard, has gone completely dead and your keyboard is dead in the water. However, if you can get a MIDI to USB converter and get the battery changed, then you can reload the patches back onto the keyboard.

I have worked on a Korg M1 Workstation and have had to replace the battery(CR2032) and then had to run a program called "MIDI-OX" which also gave me access to the patches needed in order to restore the keyboard to factory patch settings.

Take a look at this AFTER you have gotten the battery replaced. I will tell you that replacing most batteries is a very intricate job as, the bottom of the keyboard has to be removed, as well as a lot of the internal boards. I had to draw a diagram and mark certain pieces so I would know where they went and in what order they have to be re-attached. My advice is take it to someone who works on electronics unless you want to DIY (not recommended) to get the battery replaced.

Hope this helps.
