As most owners of Roland JD-800’s know: sooner of later the keys will stop functioning correctly. If it’s not the infamous red glue issue it’s the flexible circuit board that will break. The red glue can be an easy fix (especially if you fix it before it becomes a problem) but the flexible circuit board that runs underneath the keys is a bigger problem.Continue reading
(and fix stuck keys)
Last week I bought a Roland XP-10 which was in desperate need of some tlc. In the photo’s it was visible that about 10 keys where stuck down. I thought these might be physically broken but according to the seller some keys just don’t come back up when you press them sometimes. Apart from that the seller said the keyboard (and display) work fine. I asked because I know the displays on these have issues.Continue reading
(and a fix for the ‘No RAM Card <Exit>‘ message!)
Right. A project which is looooooooong overdue 🙂 replacing the display of my Roland D-70.Continue reading
I bought another JD-800 about a year ago. First owner, didn’t use it a lot and it came with ALL THE CARDS (yes, including the String Ensemble cards). And it looked absolutely MINT.
I had a Roland G-800 for a long time years ago. They are really cool keyboards. So when I came across this G-1000 which was very cheap I bought it.
About a month ago I bought a Roland GW-7. A few keys not working but more worrying: the display isn’t working properly.
A few weeks ago I bought a Roland G-1000 and this YS200 came with it as a package deal. Weird little synthesizer but I read good things about it. It’s insanely dirty and it looks like 2 keys are broken so lets dig in 🙂
The E-86 was on my wanted list for a while. I’ve owned most of the (interesting) E-series by now so when I saw an add for a ‘well used’ E-86 I picked it up.
A while ago (gee, al lot of my post begin with these words 🙂 ) I bought 4 old Casio toy keyboards. My very first keyboard was a Casio SA-1 (which I still have) and some models are still popular today.
A while ago I bought a Roland E-70. Why would you want a 25 year old keyboard? Because when I was alot younger I had a E-30 and the E-70 was the top of the line keyboard back then. Thats why 🙂
