“A Casio CZ-101 synthesizer in very good used condition. One owner. All functions work properly. There are no modifications. I have no testing equipment so that would be up to the buyer if they want to open it up and tinker with it. This is an as-is sale.

A little history:

I bought it brand new in San Rafael, California in the late 1980s. Hooked it up to a Commodore 64 with a program that would generate these wonderfully bizarre random patches.
Later I hooked a Casio DH-100 digital horn up to the CZ-101 and played the random patches with wind controller ability.

Then in recent years I hooked up a midi to computer cable and used it as a controller a little while. I was using a power adapter without batteries and noticed that the internal patches were all empty (no sounds). But after installing new D cells and pushing the reset button they all came back.

I no longer have any cartridges or midi cables so I can’t test those functions, however they used to work fine with the ones I used to have so I would think it’s still okay.
Everything else appears to be working as it should. All keys play. ”

“Vintage 1980s Working Casio CZ-101 Synthesizer Keyboard.

The keyboard works well with some exceptions. The display still looks excellent and the protective plastic was never removed. After testing it, this is what didn’t work.

The number 6 and number 7 buttons as well as the select and internal button do not seem to work. Also the key follow buttons on both DCA 2 and DCA 1 do not seem to work. The ENV buttons on both DCW 1 and DCW 2 do not work as well.

I was not able to see any response from the master tune buttons but I could be doing something wrong.

All keys as well as the pitch bend and volume work great. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” Casio CZ-101 Keyboard Synthesizer. No AC Adapter, No Manual, No Cartridge. Condition is Used. Battery compartment needs cleaning.

Due to so many questions about functionality, let me add this to the description: This item is listed as used which means that it is “fully operational and functions as intended”. It has been tested with a universal power supply, THAT IS NOT INCLUDED. There are some signs of cosmetic wear as seen in the pictures. I do not have 6 D cell batteries in order to test it that way, but I believe that with a little cleaning it will work perfectly in that mode also. ” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“The piano powers on and the lcd does display functions. Nevertheless, the lcd seems a little faded towards the bottom. I tried to take a good picture.

Also there is no sound and I am not sure why, i believe you need headphones or an amplifier which I don’t have so I can’t really test it. I picked up this piano at a yard sale and hoped that it would work perfectly but unfortunately it did not. I’m notan expert in electronic stuff. All the keys are there with no damage.

“FOR PARTS OR REPAIR CZ101 Does not power on and someone had tried repairing it previously. A part is loosely soldered to the board (see picpicture). Body has some wear but pretty decent for its age. It is missing the battery door and the power button cap. Some posts were rattling inside so I put them in a bag which is included. Also included is a reprinted User Manual. Please look closely at the pics and feel free to ask questions. I have been as honest as I can and included as many details as I remember because I don’t want anyone to think it is a dirty battery spring or anything but it is hopefully repairable to someone out there with more skills and time than me as I cannot get to it before an upcoming medical procedure. Selling off a lot of projects for that reason. It is packed up and ready to go and I generally ship the day after you pay. As this is being sold FOR PARTS OR REPAIR there are unfortunately NO REFUNDS OR RETURNS. Thanks and stay safe and healthy :)” Click here to search for synths on eBay
