JP8000 Pitch Wheel not working after Battery Replacement

Post by DLovas » Wed May 21, 2014 7:30 pm

Hey guys, for a while now my JP8000 has started up with the messages, *Memory Damaged* and *Battery Low,* so I finally got around to changing the battery. Now here's the problem. Everything seems great except for the fact that the pitch wheel / LFO2 will not work. It wasn't working before I attempted to replace the battery, and I thought nothing of it since I read that the wheel not working was simply a symptom of needing to replace the battery. Any thoughts? I've tried changing the bend range to no avail... The system seems to think it should be working. It's not that big a deal since I don't use it at all when recording, but it's still a tad annoying.

Thanks.

1 Before turning the JP on,hold down the SYNC,12db/24dB and TYPE buttons

2 keep holding the buttons downand turn on the JP.It will take awhile but eventually the screen will show 1 midi test.

3,press 3,display will read 3 Bend Mod.

4 Gradually move the bender fully left and gradually back to centre.Now press the LOWER button.

5 Do the same moving to the right,return to centre and press the UPPER button.

6 Do the same again but pushing the lever forwards and back before pressing the KEY MODE button

7 When a * appears on the screen,press UP

8 Press 4 to show 4 Ribbon

9 press down on the far left of the ribbon and at the same time press LOWER

10 Repeat on the right side and press UPPER

11Pressing on the middle, press the KEY MODE button.

12 when the * appears on the display, press UP.

13 Power off the JP.

Next time you turn on, everything will be fine.STart sweeping those sawtooths!
Hope this helps
Andy

P.S don't forget you will also need to do a factory reset for the Patch mode,Performance mode and the RPS patterns.This is explained in the manual,but if you don't have this,post here,and I will run through the procedure.
Thanks.
