FR-3X Accordion Connection between DC in and AC Adapter plug

Customer Question

FR-3X Accordion
Connection between DC in Jack and AC Adapter plug has become very "shaky" and we cannot rely on it to not interrupt power during performance. We have made a half-hitch
with the cord around the strap fixture, but contact cannot be maintained.
Is there a Roland factory "fix" for that problem?
Instrument was purchased form Castle Accordions, Minneapolis, in 1/2/2013.

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
That will require repair. Specifically, it may be a loose solder joint, it may be the jack inside the device needs replacing.
The nearest Roland Authorized service center in your region would be :
LA CROSSE, WI 54603 (###) ###-####
But almost anyone with reasonable electronics repair ability, practice, and tools, could do this repair job.

I hope that the service center can help you with the device's need for repair-servicing.
If it cannot, then please let me know, and I will suggest other alternatives local to you... and meantime, I advise you to give them a call first, to make sure of their location and continued ability to serve you - their listing, and the information I got from it, may no longer be valid in all details, you know.
