  1. Repaired the red glue problem and replaced 2 rubber contact strips, finally put it together and NO KEYS WORKED! After a few hours of research, testing continuities, de oxit ing flimsy ribbon cables....I finally watched this vid, and it dawned on me to push down on this pretty invisible ribbon cable joint while playing. VIOLA! So thats why they have this crappy plastic clamping the cable down! So why not drill out the plastic screws one at a time, replacing with metal nuts and bolts....clamp a popsicle stick 2 inches long down onto the top of the plastic clamp...tighten with the proper nuts and bolts....oh, and a hearty F U to Roland and their terrible engineering crew! I hear they now want over 850$ for a replacement keybed ! Bad Joint! Red Glue! Hey Roland! Fuck You!
