Customer Question

I have a Kurzweil RE-210. I turned it on today and the front middle panel lights are just blinking. I have no sound from the unit. I tried to do the hard reset procedure I found on the Internet but it does not seem to work.

Hi and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, have you tried unplugging for an extended period of time?

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
Not for an extended period of time. Just for a few seconds. How long would you think would be "extended"?
Expert:  Louie replied 18 days ago.

The idea is to dissipate residual power inside simulating a soft reset.

Consider overnight.

The alternative and/or if not corrective is an internal check of the circuitry.

Please post back results / observations of the above once tried.

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
Sounds good, I will give that a try.
Expert:  Louie replied 18 days ago.

Cheers.

I left it powered off overnight but still had the problem this morning. I will not be near my piano for another 8 hours but want to pass along the update. Please let me know if there is anything else you think of that I can try.

Unfortunately, the above results would only confirm the internal hardware issue.

Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter and even a soldering iron?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
I agree, most likely a hardware issue. I have found a repair shop about an hour away that will diagnose it. Thanks for your help.
