You checked for an empty battery (CR2032?) inside ?

You could contact Roland for assistance, their support for older stuff is great.
You could ask them for info on the so called self-test which most of their products have - and as also described in the service notes.

Policy seems to have changed a while ago, they don't send these out anymore, but friendly asking usually results in them sending you the relevant part of the documentation.

Good luck!

ok, so i opened her up and blew her out with compressed air.

i closed her and she worked great for that day.

next day the craziness started again, so i shut her off for a week.

i been using he for a few weeks now with no issue.

but i'm still concerned.

i tried a system initialize before i opened here up. didn't help.

i'm hoping it was just dust inside.
