Hi fellow musicians,
This is my first post.
I'm sure my experience here will be a pleasant one.
I've had this Roland E-15 Intelligent synth for several years and its always been super reliable. It's been sitting idle for about 3 years, I'm a guitarist mainly. Switched it on last week, heard a lot of crackling but no audio from the right hand channel. Checked with headphones, same result.
Anyone had a similar experience with this particular model?
Sydney, Australia.

hi Tony,

The output sockets and also the volume slider should be cleaned using switchcleaner, NOT wd40 btw

The output sockets (assuming they are 1/4" jack sockets) can be cleaned using a burnishing tool which is very cheap from a electronics component type stores.

basicaly the burnishing tool is a solid steel 1/4" jack plug with a very fine abrasive coating on the plug shaft. You spray some cleaner on the shaft/pin of the plug, insert it into the socket and just rotate it and plug it in and out repeatedly & it burnishes the contact surfaces inside the socket. Finaly clean out the socket with some q-tips with cleaner sprayed on (or isopropyl alchohol), and finaly dry q-tips to remove any leftover crap.

however, maybe first check it's not your leads or a dodgy socket before going to all that hassle.
