Repairing a Dead Roland TR-808

US Synthchaser gets his hands dirty      22/04/24

Synthchaser often takes a look at broken gear and gets it back on the road. In this video he takes a look at a completely dead Roland 808, in addition to a request to convert it from 220 to 110 volts. He starts of with the test points for the power supply, following the circuit diagram and explaining their operation. In the video, he gets it working with a very simple fix!
