Roland SH-2000

Post by nvining » Thu Dec 07, 2006 11:26 pm

A while ago, my Roland SH-2000 met with an accident; somebody knocked it over, and one of the black keys got smashed. I replaced the key, and in the process had to disassemble and reassemble the entire synthesizer. And now, it doesn't work. It gets power, the 'modulation' light turns on, but it produces no sound and none of the controls work. So... I figure I've connected something wrong.

Is there somebody out there with another SH-2000 who would be willing to take the top off of theirs and to take a few photographs of the series of 4-wire connectors on the top left control unit? Failing that, does anybody have schematics for this monster?

Thanks!

Hi, sorry, I can't help, but I would say that you should repost this subject a few times. There will be someone on here that can help- they just might not have seen it!

I don't own a Sh2000 nor do I have the service manual. If I find it, I'll let you know. But if you decide to purchase it, I'm willing to split the bill with you.

Thanks for the offer, Machinengeist. Hopefully somebody has some clue as to how to fix this thing.

Randomly, for anybody interested in such matters: this synthesizer is a pain in the @#$@ to work on. If you loosen anything too much, or jiggle it just right, all of the keys fly off in the air. Stupid spring action. I think I ended up taping them in place.

There was a guy a couple days ago selling an sh2000 on Toronto craigslist who said he recently had it serviced/fixed. The ad is unsurprisingly gone now since he was only asking $200 (!). It's a long shot - but, you could post there and if he or the buyer were to see it maybe they could point you in the direction of some schematics etc...
