Roland Dimension D repair advice (London servicing)

Hi guys,

I've been having some trouble with it recently and wondered if anyone has any similar experience, and (hopefully) knows a good repair guy in the London area that has worked on the Dimension D before...

Basically when I put in any signal the output meter always reads about -20db and output appears 'stuck' at that level. If I place the unit in bypass mode then the sound goes back to normal volume. Now, if I increase the input volume then it just starts distorting but at all times the output remains the same at -20db. If I flick on the effects then the chorus thankfully kicks in to action as expected so I'm hoping its just a faulty component at the output stage?

Any other thoughts would be grateful.

Love mine.

I don't completely understand your description of the fault tho.
(I'm tired, so that doesn't help)

I've seen the schems online, and inside the DimD is easy to work on. Should be easy for a decent tech to repair.

Send a sine wave to it, probe around for fault. Sorted.

(I'm in Australia, so can't help you any more)
