Low output signal on analog synth

  1. Anyone here have any idea how to diagnose and fix an analog keyboard with a
    low signal output that's only coming through in one channel? Is there an
    internal amplifier? Is it just the jack?

    thanks!

    Does it have a headphone jack, and if so, same symptom with phones?
     
  3. no headphone jack. but i did listen through headphones and had the same
    problem.

    How did you listen via headphones w/o a jack? Didja hook 'em up to the line
    level outs?
    Might help to know the model unit we're talking about. Most analog
    keyboards I'm familiar with don't have built-in speaker drivers, but yours
    could.
     
  5. It's a Roland SH-2000 monosynth. My headphones have a quarter inch adapter
    so I just listened through line out (that's all there is).

    I don't have an amp on hand right now, but the last time I hooked it up I
    needed to turn the volume WAY up to hear anything.

    As this is a 70's synth, you may have some resistors that have increased way
    out of tolerance. Would be a good idea to check the electrolytic caps as
    well on a unit this old.
