Roland PC-200 Mk II MIDI/Select stuck

Postby PeterPJ » Sat Jan 11, 2020 6:02 pm

Hello, I am trying to connect my old Roland PC-200 Mk II to my Mac via a Roland UM-ONE USB/MIDI interface. I have successfully managed this before, but now I don't seem to be able to get it to work.

When I initially switch the keyboard on I can see input lights on the interface when I hit a key, but, after a short while (less than a minute) the MIDI/SELECT light on the keyboard comes on and I then don't get any indication on the interface.

Even before the MIDI/SELECT comes on, I don't seem to be able to get any sound out of the Mac, but clearly the stuck MIDI/SELECT is the first problem to sort out.

I would be grateful for any help. Anyone experienced this before?

Hello

That's exactly what is happening to me right now :(

My midi select it's also stuck,
First I thought the problem was from the AA batteries, but after I change them and the problem persists :(

Someone found the problem/solution?

Hello!!
New here, but lot of time playing this games...

I have the same problem. I have disassembled the device but it seems that everything is fine. :headbang: :crazy: I don't have much knowledge of electronics and I don't know where it can go wrong.
Has anyone managed to fix the problem? :think: :think:

Thank you!!
