Question about Roland FANTOMG8

1 Answer

I have a Roland xp60 that produces no sound! Everything else seems to be fine - the display registers that I am hitting the keys & even the skip-back sampling feature produces a wav file I can see on screen - but no sound. There is no audio from any of the outputs or the headphone jack. I have executed a factory reset but still nothing. If anyone can help I'd be forever grateful

Two things come to mind: 1. These synths have mute and output control settings. Verify they are correct as even a factory reset might not set them to default. 2. The next thing is that the volume control itself is damaged which requires internal investigation. Was this working and was there an accident with it... dropping manhandling, or accident with power or cables? There could be a cable that has fallen off between the main board and where the audio outs and jacks are. Be very careful if you open this of ribbon cables from the halves of the shell.

How do I fix a Roland Digital Piano FP-8 that has refused to play sounds despite the fact that it displays lights?


If everything lights up and responds to button pushes like normal, and you've done a hard reset as described in the manual, check to see if you have sound out of the headphone jack. It's most likely not a user serviceable problem and will need to go to the shop, but it will probably be the output amp rather than the main board.

Enter buttion not working


Hello, that seems to be a bad contact on the enter button, the solution is to take a part the key and clean it, otherwise you need to replace the under key switch.
Thanks

Roland EP50 F sharp does'nt work.All other keys are fine


EP-50's are notorious for problems with either the 4.65 voltage feed to the velocity sensitive keys or failure of the small zenner diaodes. Each key has a pair fo split circles on the circuit board under it. When you hit the key you connect each side of the circles and the harder you hit the keys the quicker the circuits close the louder the sound. Problem is if the voltage to either circle fails, due to bad solder, scratch on circuit board, failed diaode then the sound disappears. The fix is simple if you are knowledgeable on solder on circuit boards, can use a multimeter and can dissassemble and reassemble the keyboard. If you have to take it to a repair shop it is probably not worth fixing as this is not one of the better Roland products

Hi Folks - I have a Roland Fantom G6 that produces no sound! Everything else seems to be fine - the display registers that I am hitting the keys & even the skip-back sampling feature produces a wav...


This probably is not a DIY repair... The audio comes out of the CODEC and is buffered by Op Amp used as filters and then goes through the volume controls, After that it goes to the jack board with buffer OP amps. First thoughts might be a damaged volume control, however, the "B" outputs don't go through volume controls...

About the only thing I would think you could do is to CAREFULLY open the unit and look for a loose cable involved with sending the audio to the volume control panel and then the cable that takes the audio to the jack board...

More than that you would probably need to take it to a shop equiped to troubleshoot.

No sound when hitting some keys


Your key contacts are dirty. Disassemble and clean both the circuit traces and the conductive rubber pills with ONLY 99% isoprophyl alcohol and QTips.

The contaacts are in pais which allows for measuring key velocity. When contacts are dirty, this affects the loudness.

Roland XP 50 Head phone not working


Make sure that the level of the headphone out put is open. Make sure it is on manual adjustment and no auto level. And test your headphone on a other device to clear that your headphone is not broken. If all these options are correct you headphone pre amp of the XP 50 may be damaged or broken.

ROLAND GR30 POWERS UP BUT DOES NOT MAKE A SOUND


Make sure you use the ORIGINAL AC adapter with the unit. It takes a 9VAC one.

The adapter for the GR09 will NOT work and will act the way your unit is acting.
