Arturia Origin Synthesizer Faulty Encoder Replacement/Repair

Published on Apr 8, 2016 paulshillitomusic

This problem happens with other synths using encoders as well. He mentions oxidation and dust after 4:25. Sometimes rotating them 30, 60+ times will take care of the problem, so give it a try before replacing.

"In this video I show how to replace the faulty encoders which occur on the Arturia Origin desktop synth.

This could also apply to the keyboard versions too.

I replaced all 33 encoders with the Bournes PE16 series encoders which are of a higher quality than to factory fitted Chinese ones but you might just want to replace a few.

Cost for the parts was approx $70 including shipping and tax to the UK from the USA.

I show which ones are needed, the tools to do it as well as some of the issues i faced doing the job.

The new encoders are made by Bournes and the part numbers are as follows.

I got them from

The datasheet on the Bournes encoders is here"
