Roland JP-8000 reboot

Post by Alex E » Sat Apr 24, 2010 8:32 am

I replaced the battery in mine this afternoon, and LFO 2 and the ribbon controller aren't working as they should. I heard when replacing the battery you may need to do a key combination on startup. Can someone please enlighten me on this subject? :( I've already done a factory reset several times.
