” 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 visit listing 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. Everything else looks good. I will include a carry bag ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“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 visit listing on eBay

“Casio CZ-101 Digital Synthesizer.Hello! We have had this synth in the family for a long time – my father bought this and used it for a short time in their wedding band years ago. It’s been mostly in storage. Although it has seem very limited used, there is one key which seems possibly broken (still works), as well as there are at least a few sticky buttons, and the input jack for the power adapter is finicky as to how you rotate it. I made a quick video in hopes of being transparent about the functionality. I am quite sure that some TLC on an older unit like this is entirely doable for someone who its worth it to. For us, we just don’t use this thing and would rather see it go somewhere better! Let me know if you have any questions – thank you!PS This includes the ram/card in the back, which I really don’t know much about but was always with the synth.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“1980’s Vintage Casio CZ-101 Phase Distortion Synthesizer in good condition. I have listed in detail above everything in my limited capability to test. Some features were not tested because I do not have the tools necessary to do so. (see details above) 9v 5.4w AD-5 power cord not available. All testing was done using 6 1.5v D cell batteries (Batteries not included as part of this listing). The battery compartment is without corrosion. No midi cord available, so I could not determine if an actual communication is working in or out. Sound was tested using sound and line out. 49 piano keys are all responsive. All presets are sounding. Buttons are springy. None are sticking. Seems like a great little keyboard from what I can ascertain. Total 80’s soundscape. Reminds me of big hair and bright colors. Please, do not make any assumptions about anything you think I may have missed in my description or photographs. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Casio CZ-101 Keyboard Synthesizer with manuals, ac adapter and midi cables. Condition is for parts or repair (but powers on!).
PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION SO AS TO AVOID A RETURN
Turns/powers on but no sound. Used to work just fine. It doesn’t make any sound. Half of the top control buttons work, the other half are stuck.
It seems like it could maybe be fixed by someone who knows what they are doing.
It is dusty.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This is from a one owner. Includes original silver space bag (rare) and original manuals and power supply (non original). I have owned for last 11 years and I don’t use it as much as I should. These are cool keyboards from 1985 that have a thick analog sound. The sounds have infinite controls that can be programmed onto a cartridge. I never bought the cartridge so I didn’t get to enjoy as much as one should.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Scuff marks on body, battery compartment has corrosion or rust, but unit does power on via AC supply.

Testing Notes:
* Unit Powers on
* Headphone jack works, but volume slider in finicky, needed to be jiggled / moved around to find a sweet spot where sound came out.
* Once volume was set, all keys produced sound via headphone jack, all instruments worked, pitch bend, and other keys appeared to be working.
* I don’t have MIDI cables, so no midi testing was performed
* No further testing performed.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
