20 Most Recent Roland Fantom G6 61 Key Pro Keyboard (Warehouse Resealed) Questions & Answers


Does the headphone jack work? Replacing a whole board would be expensive and the problem could be elsewhere. What was the accident? If large signals were driven back into the audio out lines, probably the output driver chip is fried... They likely use a common 8 pin dual op amp as the driver and the part costs 50 cents. It takes a little care to replace it as it is likely surface mounted. I am looking at the audio/jack board for a G-600 and there are a pair of transistors for some testing they do that could also be fried and might be the whole problem if the G-6 uses same or similar circuitry. The Fantom X6 uses very similar circuitry... Download service manual here:

Scroll down to "get manual" and click to download. IGNORE other download links. On page 57 of 66 you will find the audio drivers at the right. They use little dual op amps M5218APF which probably are available someplace, however probably 4568's would work fine and are readily available. If you drove high voltage into the audio outs, I suspect first that the RF bypass caps such as C203 on the above schematic shorted. Simple to replace... pennies apiece... The test path transistors such as Q37 may also be shorted... Next would be IC18... While this circuit may not be the exact one for the G6 it probably is CLOSE as the several Rolands all seem to use similar circuitry. Regarding system SAFETY... Make sure ALL and I do mean ALL equipment interconnected including mixers, powered speakers, keyboards, etc. are powered from the SAME receptacle or power conditioning module to avoid accidents. Also for keyboards sent to mixers, USE DI boxes please! These protect against ground loops and these accidents.

Hard to say as they are a very complex machine. However have you tried a factory reset - check the manual - its a certain key/button combination. You will losse any special settings but glitches are often solved by a reset. Good luck Bruce

If you hook it up with the USB cable Logic should recognise it. You may have to select it in the Audio Preferences as your Audio Interface.

Do you have an owner's manual......first thing to try would be a factory reset...sometimes this will un-scramble the operating system and set it back to when it left the factory....contact Roland for an owner's manual if you don't have one....hopefully this helps..if not, then you will have to open it up.....

The most likely problem would be wiring. By dropping it you loosened or disconnected a wire.

It's always possible the new battery had lost it's charge before it was installed. Check it with an ohm meter for it's voltage. Other than that, either the contacts in the battery holder may be in need of cleaning or the battery wasn't installed correctly.

did you check the fuses and if thats not it then the light may be burnt out.

there are spraycans of cleaner that u can buy to cure it. sounds like dirty pots like maybe your volume pot on your amp or the pots on the instruments your playing. get the cleaner ,spray in the pots and move them back and forth and thats it. my marshall amp was doing the same and that was my cure. i dont remember the name of it but phone long and mcquade or another store and ask. hope that helps ya.

Contact Roland..They have owners manuals on their site for download...

It's usually fine to leave solid state electronic equipment turned on. A small amount of heat is produced when powered up and it will usually help to prevent condensation inside the case if that's a problem. It's not normally needed unless it's in a damp and/or cold environment. A dehumidifier is possibly a better solution if you have a lot of moisture.

Open up the Roland G-70 and check if all the connectors and flatcables are well seated. Check also if the power supply is working as supposed to.
