Re: How to change the LCD and touch pannel of a V synth XT

Hi and does anyone have a link to a working touch screen replacement for the xt ?, ive basically tried 3 different types now off ebay all identical to the recommended replacements on the threads on the forum here and its been fitted correctly each time and still no luck with getting a working replacement that responds to touch, i had the classic problem of the vsynth xt needing to warm up before it would respond at all to touch and then slowly failure and thats in normal room temperatures and moisture so its obviously a major design flaw .

I read a few people failed to repair this via the cheap ebay touch screen replacement and i am wondering if there is some specific reason for this or if another part in the vsynths fails causing this as i am pretty sure all 3 touch screens were installed fine i tried and the correct way up ribbon wise .

Did anyone else hit this brick wall ? dont really want to spend £350 on a new lcd when thats working fine

last request is if anyone can recommend a uk repair guy that works on Roland gear as i get the feeling this could be more than just touchscreen problems some people are having ?

Unfortunately I've run into the exact same problem you have. I tried three different screens from eBay, all with the same specs, without any success. If you figure out which screen to order/which one works, please let me know so I can purchase it, too. You can go back through this thread and see my previous posts, as well; maybe the suggestions provided by other users on those posts can help you with your issue where they did not help me. Thanks!

cheers for the reply , from what i can gather the actual touchscreen tech is very straight forward and i am feeling this must be some other failed part of the synth , possibly connector or something , i dont think the screens the issue , wondering why Roland insist on replacing the entire lcd also for £350 instead of £7 when the lcd is fine in mine , seems odd , or maybe just good Parasitic business thinking

ok so solved the problem

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Touch-Scr ... SwcUBYIEb0

having tried already all the ones recommended here all failed to work accept the one i just listed above.

The main difference is i bought one that actually mentions its for a synth ( Korg ) the specs seemed the same , Not all Generic touch panels work off ebay even if they are the correct size and pin count etc , somethings not matching up , the one above works with a vsynth xt 100% the 5 before with exact same specs did not........

If you need to replace a touchscreen on an xt you need the one linked to above.

Hi kineticsoundprism,

Do you know if the panel you bought is compatible with V-Synth GT 2.0?

Thanks,
darthangel

After trying to put in a touchscreen that didn't work at all, I tried to order the screen linked above, but it does not ship to USA. This one worked for me and it ships to the USA:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/121945959657

Here's the thing though... The new touchscreen works, but it seems less responsive than the one that comes standard in the XT. For instance, when using the touchscreen for the "Time trip" function, the responsiveness is totally unusable and does not register any kind of dynamic or sliding touch --> it won't track finger movements while pressed and held against the screen. It works okay for normal functions, like pressing and selecting tabs, buttons and fields to edit, but anything beyond that, it is very sluggish and not as responsive. Is this true for anyone else?
