Korg Trident Help required Keyboard Synthesizers

Korg Trident Help required

Dear all,

First of all I would like to introduce myself. I come from the Island of Malta in the Mediterranean. I have 2 KORG Trident MKI. One of them seems to be beyond repair due to a "burn out" caused by a surge in current. This I still keep for physical parts. I own another Trident MKI that used to work 100% but now for some reason is beginning to show signs of old age. The Trident is losing its tune from one octave to the other and now the SYNTH section is not working at all. At first it used to work after a few minutes of warming up but now it is completely dead. All preset lights are still functioning if this might help. I am not tchnically inclined so I can't make head or tails of the situation. To make matters worse, there are no technicians on the island who are ready to take on the job as they all seem to work on more modern stuff. I am therefore asking for any help out there. I need a technician (preferably based anywhere in Europe) that would be ready to service the TRIDENT. I would also consider selling both keyboards if I get a fair deal.

recap the power supply.

i.e. replace all the capacitors in the power supply. you are experiencing the classic symptoms of dried out capacitors in your power supply.

In that case it might be sufficient to just ship the psu abroad, right?

BTW: If I may chime in here, I could use some Trident MKI schematics, and itabone might need them as well. I couldn't find them online - any ideas?
