Repair Synkit Electronic Simulator Trigger Drum Pad Reparatur Service24. September 2017
D.I.Y. Midibox SID C64 Service12. November 2017
Two Akai S612 Sampler and two MD280 Quickdisk Drive. On both units the quickdisk wasn't working, disc did not load. I expected the belt were worn out and it was. I ordered new belts and that solved the problem. I also noticed that the pots and sliders were dirty, so I cleaned these (desolder,open,clean...). I also replaced the tactiles. On one unit it was fun to change the LEDs (and the resistors) to blue. Usually I don´t really like the blue LEDs but in this case it looked pretty amazing. Still need a blue 7-segment for this. Could't find the right replacement for this until now. If someone knows, please let me know. Both Akai S612 Sampler tested ok. Quickdisc is loading. Like always I share my knowledge and pictures with you.
There are lethal voltage exposed in electronic devices. Unless you know what you are doing, don’t try this. If you following along, you doing so at your own risk.
