Power noise from keyboard?


New member
I have a Roland FA08 keyboard and it's jack output is making an electrical noise so i can't record it. I wondered if there's any fix for this? Or at least a diagnosis. I'm posting a sound snippet and hopefully someone can identify what it is. It features the idle sound of my keyboard whilst on, followed by the sound of me turning it off (pretty cool sound, just not desired right now) and then a few seconds of the sound while it's off. It even continues to make this sound when unplugged. I guess this means it's some sort of grounding issue, but I need someone to confirm. Ideally someone who knows things about this stuff. And then maybe they could tell me if there's any way to sort it? Does it involve taking the keyboard apart? Can Roland help me? It's second hand so i guess the warranty is void... omegle xender

Apologies, I'm rambling.

You may be able to tell I'm a bit of a moron so any help is appreciated.

Also, please appreciate that I'm high right now and I've spent the last half an hour trying to figure out how to upload a sound file on this forum... turns out Ableton can't export in raw mp3 and this site only takes mp3 sound files... I had to get a convertor app... anyway I'm not bitter.

Thanks in advance.
