Well, I hate troubleshooting at distance. Anyway, since it's the original power adaptor, let's assume it's of the right dimension and all. Therefore, it must be the socket that came lose with the time. That's rare that this part fails but it happens, especially if the DR-770 has been plugged and un...

The DR-707 doesn't have a metal clip inside its socket to hold the jack. So my guess is that the barrel of the jack is to be checked.
I'm using the factory power supply, I really don't know what to do here.

Boss Dr-770 Drum Machine power issue

In order to keep power to this unit, I constantly have to be pushing down on the power supply cable at the jack where it goes into the machine. With pressure released, the unit turns itself off. It works perfectly while keeping power. This seems to be some kind of physical issue of connectors not pr...

You could always just have it done. Even after the cost of repair, you'd probably be well under that $370. How would go about doing this? I don't really have any experience in this sort of thing, so that looks like the prime option. I don't exactly know where or who to go to other than maschinengei...

Hmm, thanks. SO will this be very hard? I almost feel like paying maschinengeist for it, but then again, it's a really tiny thing and the shipping in that wouldn't look too good.

Anticipation of MC-505 tiny repair job help.

In the auction description was included the phrase: "There is one loose knob, and one knob that needs to be replaced (cutoff). Very easy fix." Even so, at a price of $245 bin (i got to it four hours after posting), while contemporarily mc-505's were at for $370 with 3 days left, I went on impulse an...
