I'v owned and used a JV-1000 since they came out in '93. I still use it now, both as a controller, and for it's piano, brass, and pads! The issue with it turning off and on is easy to fix. The main power transistor's solder joints degrade because the heat sink is attached separately. Just resolder (carefully) the feet. Also, the glue holding the weights into the keys has degraded and the only way I found to fix this easily was to open it up and force them all out with a screwdriver and hairdryer to soften the glue. It works nearly the same without the weights. Replacing them with new glue is too hard..

I picked one up just recently for $175. It's got the voice exander and a "Techno" card in it. It's in excellent condition. I used to own an XP80. This is the earlier version of that board. I wish I could find someone to trade me expansion boards though. I need the "Keyboards of the 60's and 70's".

The spontaneous turning off of the JV1000 is a problem that occurs with age. It happened to mine as well, and I found that some of the solder joints on the power supply board had gone " dry " and once these were resoldered, I have not had the problem since. It was easy to fix, but be careful not to apply too much heat from your soldering iron for too long when fixing it.

I have owned my JV1000 since 1993 and definitely do not plan to part with it. I currently run a JV1080 module and a Korg Micro X module from it.

I've owned a JV1000 from new and have just installed an SR-JV80-04 Vintage Synth board. Problem is I can't seem to get it to function properly. I can get into the card after selecting the V-EXP button and then setting the screen as follows: GS CTRL 84 80 *** Bnk/PC * ** *** * I can select programmes 1 through 64 and 65 through 128 ** I can select programmes 1 through 64 *** Can't seem to get any more sounds out regardless of parameter settings I've tried any number of settings but only seem to get access to a total of 192 sounds yet the card is supposed to be loaded with 256!! Any ideas? I was foolishly expecting I'd install this card and it would operate in the same way as the normal patches as soon as you hit V-EXP. Instead, access to the sounds is painful, there's no patch names, you can't enter the number of the sound you want using a logical entry on the keypad without screwing up the settings and some of the sounds are missing! I hope you can help - I'm starting to lose faith in my old JV!
