Yes, use a step-down transformer/converter. I assume that your voltage at home is 240 VAC and the gear requires 110 VAC, right?

Those things are available at electronics stores.

:shock:

I swear I've never seen that thread before.

Work around? I've been using PureTronics cleaner with success. And I've been using another one I am presently forgetting the name. About the repair kit, I've been using the MG Chemicals one.

Check out the HELP! section. There is no such thing as "generic" synth keys. They are unfortunately not universal but differ slightly (or less slightly) one to another. There are plenty of sites selling vintage keys. Use the SEARCH in here and/or Google. Sorry to sound mean but we keep answering the...

No output > Have checked for the solder joints / loose wires?

Effects light stuck on> Have you taken a reading of the resistors? The NPN transistor could be defective. BUT most likely it's the switch that's defective.

Lfo lights not working. Most likely a dead LED

Hope that helps

Could be a software problem too: I heard of some glitches with the drivers. Maybe it's a parameters problem, which is also possible.

Ah!!!

But the RE-210 has a LINE IN and a MIC IN... So logically, your synth shouldn't affect the RE-210. If so, maybe the PEAK/LEVEL meter should be adjusted.

I know the RE-201 output should be -15dBm on echo; -12.5dBm normal. But if you say that it does the same thing with the other FX, then I think it could be à propos to look at the Juno 60. As for the Juno, its output should be -30dBm for LOW (0.001 mW); -15dBm for MID; 0dBm for HI (=1.0 mW). There co...

It's a 3V lithium battery. You can't miss it, it's big (usually yellow).

If I remember correctly, it uses a Panasonic 3V 1200mAh with soldering tabs. When you delsolder it, have a look on the battery: all the infos are printed on it. Such a battery is available at places like Digi-Key, Mouser, etc.

I assume you have consulted the owner's manual about the arp, so I'd propose this: try to test the arp tempo pot with a digital multimeter and see what reading you get and compare to the value of the pot itself (usually printed on the back), Chances are that the potentiometer might need to be replac...
