JX-3P from trash to...

Hello everyone,

Having used the forum as a reader for some time, I felt the moment to join was finally there.

In Amsterdam we recently had one of the worst summer storms ever. While throwing away my trash the morning after, I discovered a Roland JX-3P - just laying there in the rain and mud. When I found it, the JX-3P was completely deconstructed and full with sand and even several cigaret butts. Thus far, I have replaced the plywood, cleaned all boards, resoldered all components, replaced the power supply caps and put back all sliders. Nobody believed that I (having no technical background whatsoever) could get it working again - but, against all odds, the JX-3P powered up and is working like a charm!

I hope to build on your expertise in further repairing the synth and trying to get a broken(?) PG200 to work.

Looking forward to learning from you!

wow Actant, you made some cool finds. Amsterdam is a great city. I was lucky to visit in the 80s, and met the coolest people everywhere.
