      Somehow in being transported last week I have managed to knock my pitch and
      cutoff knobs sideways - almost completely wrenching it out in the case of
      the cutoff............

      Has anyone experienced changing these parts over? Is it possible to replace
      the knobs?

      I didn't want to switch it on yesterday when I found out as if I have fucked
      it I didn't want to know...

      Also - has anyone ever had a 505 repaired by Roland? Was it ripoff
      expensive?

        Ras,
        When I first got my 505, I was heading down into Mexico for a week and so
        it wasn't in plain view I stuffed my 505 under the bed and did the SAME
        THING with the Cutoff y Reso knobs. I'd had the machine for about a month
        at that point. The knobs came almost completely out - so far that I could
        look beneath them. It appeared that they just snapped in like a chip
        socket. I've never gone back and checked, but just stuffed them back down
        in there and haven't had any problems since. They don't even feel different.
        Hopefully we wont have to call in Ravi to organize a benefit to replace
        your machine.

          Your'e not going to like this...

          I whacked my cutoff knob during last summer. At first I thought no real
          damage had been done, the knob was just a little bit wobbly. When I would
          play, as long as I didn't touch the knob, everything operated fine. But as
          soon as I reached for that cutoff knob, chaos started. I can't remember
          exactly what would happen (I've tried very hard to forget the incident), but
          I do know different characters in the LCD would appear, and the whole
          pattern would generally go crazy. When I hit stop and tried to switch to
          another pattern, the problems would follow. Also, say I was on pattern 100
          and switched to 101, the LCD would jump back to 100 with an asterisk by it.
          It would keep doing this for as long as I kept the 505 on. When I turned it
          off then on, repetitive same thing.
          So I took it in to the musicshop I got it from (electron specialists
          they are). They said my motherboard was cracked! They also said no Roland
          warranty would cover it and that a new motherboard cost $300! I finally got
          the guy to get it for me @ $250, but still having to pay for labor. The shop
          had to order it from Roland, which took three weeks, and then the labor took
          about a week. All in all, I didn't have my 505 for about a month.
          When I got back my 505, they gave me the old motherboard too. There was
          a hairline fracture right underneath the cutoff knob on the board. Took me
          about a hour to even find it. But heh, now I know what kind of electronics
          goes into making a 505. You should see this motherboard!

          I hope you get as lucky as Brent did....

          good luck............. ries

            They don't actually do it themselves, they get your location and send you to
            the nearest service station they approve of. Mine was pretty expensive, and
            i'd guess they all run around the same price. 'Course you could also do
            what i did and when the 5o5 is fixed, just go in, pick it up, and run like
            hell ;) Ah the joys of shoplifting your own stuff...
