Repair Hohner Rhythm 80 Analog Drumcomputer Reparatur
Customer bought this second hand via Internet. See what he got. I was shocked ! The Fuse and unisolated (!) mains power wires were hanging loose outside (!) the case. Plug it in, touch it, and there is a chance you die… So please. Don´t do it like that and (most important) don’t sell such to other people.
Beside that there was a broken wire found on one voice coil.
These fine wires can easily break, especially during transport. There once was a wire connected to this terminal. You can still see the rest of it.
I fixed that... I also re-capped the machine, since the capacitors looked old but not very healthy. Works great now.
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.
I’m documenting repairs for my reference and yours.
