Electribe Service Manual

Post by MacroComposer » Wed May 13, 2009 4:23 am

So a friend blew his ER-1 MkII up and wanted me to fix it. Took a poke around, magic smoke came out of something near the power switch. Decided it was an easy fix, and went to korg support to get schematics. Guess what: "we don't offer schematics for that model." Did they just throw away the blueprints. Are they stopping issuing service manuals with everything just integrated DSP throwaway technology? Jeez. On a lighter note, can anybody prove me wrong and shoot me ANY electribe service document. I just need a basic idea of what components / circuit is going on with the DC power from the wort plug.

The EM-1 service manual is here, it probably has the same power circuit as the ER-1:


You'll need to join the group though, to access the file (it's in the FILES section of the site).

Turns out I have a similar problem with an ER-1 MkII. Did you manage to fix yours? Any pointers?

Got the same smoke from my mkII, seems that L41 makes the smoke but why exactly? Did anyone succeed in obtaining the SM?
