The VFX keyboard problems can be solved by the hardwired keyboard fix.
When buying a used VFX you should know about this and be certain that the keyboard you buy has had this done. From the VFX mailing list:. Under the keyboard proper, there are 3 circuit boards that control the poly-key tm pressure. They do this:. The first problem they thought was the solder flux thing which would be on board 1.
They then thought it was the cable that goes from board 1 to the motherboard. Wrong again. There is a connector that connects board 2 to board 3. Over time and use, the keyboard begins to sag a little bit and this connector eventually starts to corrode get dirty , come loose and the like.
Ensoniq has determined that hard-wiring that connection solves the problem. Someone had the problem that the display would come up, and then only partially draw the "initializing" message, and then hang. They were told by Ensoniq to power-cycle seven times, always turning off the machine at a particular point in the power-up sequence.
