“This is a Roland D50 being sold for parts as is. This unit was working fine then just started emitting noise over the output that was not dependent on the volume control. It is in good physical condition and all features wer working before this happened. Could be fixed or used for parts.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Amazing mint condition D50. Comes with manual, memory card , video tutorial , and sound charts.
Unit is mint condition but remember it is a 1980’s keyboard. Sounds amazing by the way.

Purchased a year ago from the original owner to use on a production, But it arrived to late and therefore we never actually used the item.
Original owner said he had it from new and never used it , so it has little to no use as seen in pictures and has all the accessories you see in the pics.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

D-50, Roland @ 20 May 2018, Comments Off on Roland D-50 Project Machine

“Powers on, but gives a ‘check internal battery’ error. I’ve tried replacing the battery several times, but no success. It doesn’t retain any sounds in internal memory. Also, the 4 buttons (Upper/Lower/Value/Local) next to the X/Y joystick don’t work.

It is possible to load and play patches one at a time into RAM via SYSEX or MIDI and the Roland D-50 Librarian software on a PC (see picture 8), so the keyboard does work. All the keys work and respond to velocity, and the rest of the front panel functions, including the bender and after-touch.
It sounds lovely with a low noise floor and all outputs seem to be functioning correctly as well as MIDI in/out/thru. I haven’t tested it with a memory card as I don’t own any to test with.

I tried to fix the problems myself by replacing several capacitors, diodes and chips on the main board, having taken advice from an engineer, but to no avail. My soldering is not neat but the replaced components appear to work correctly.

The exterior of the keyboard has various scratches and scuffs, some of the keys have chips/marks, all consistent with age. (See pictures)

Given the above problems I am selling the keyboard strictly for SPARES OR REPAIR, although I recommend repair to be attempted only by a professional electronic musical equipment repair technician. I will not consider selling individual components separately. This auction is for the whole keyboard. No power cable included, but uses a standard IEC kettle lead. UK Voltage 220V-240V.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Works perfectly, has very minor cosmetic issues at all. Sounds great and comes with power cable. The pitch bender seemed to stop working, but I will attempt to fix that before shipping.

I only used it through a mono output and it had a minor scratchy sound to it but it may be just some part of the patches/configurations.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” This was a project I picked up with the hope of fixing but it’s now sat on my desk for a few months without me touching it leading me to realize I won’t have the time. It does start up but there are lines over most of the LCD screen. In testing when you push certain buttons the display does change (see pictures). Plugging it into my board I wasn’t able to get any sound out of it. Last, but not least, the person I got it from lost all the screws keeping the back metal panel secured to the frame, so you’ll need new screws. My lack of time can be your gain.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Selling my Roland D50 for Parts or Repair. I have tried to get this thing going, but I must be missing something.

The power supply has been rebuild to be the Caps were out of spec and some voltages were off. Also the key contacts have been clean. I have changed out the back up battery as well.

As you can see in the photos when the unit is powered on it loads and goes to what looks like the patch screen but it is call scrambled up. I have read on like were people reload the factory patches from a card, but I do not have any D50 cards.

Most of the panel buttons work, but they will all need to be cleaned. And you can see it is missing one key from the photo.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Very sad to be selling my treasured D-50 due to a new family arrival! The D-50 is an absolute classic (see YouTube link below) and I have taken good care of this one. The only thing to note is that the top G# key does not spring back up – it still works but you just have to pull it back up to play it again. I am told it is an easy fix but I didn’t want to open the case up. ”

“Up for your consideration is this vintage ROLAND D-50 Linear Synthesizer keyboard.

I am not a musician, but I did plug the unit into the wall outlet and tapped all the keys. The pictured key with the blue tape does not produce any sound. I also noted some of the white keys have either wear or slight sun damage as seen in the close-up photograph. Aside from that, unit appears to be in good cosmetic condition with the expected scuffs to body from use and storage.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” Roland D-50. Original Owner (bought 1988). Original Power Cable. Original Advanced Manual. Home Studio use. Personal Rehearsal Studio use. Never been gigged. It has been in a closet for more than 3 years. There are two issues plus minimal cosmetic blemishes (see below). Otherwise the machine is in great shape.

Issues: Buttons 1 and 2 in the Patch Number row do not work. They were funky before the machine was stored in my closet. They currently do not respond. Patches are accessible through midi. The Patch Bank row works perfectly. Right part of screen (see Photo) is slightly dimmer than the rest but functional, fully readable, and the rest of the screen is strong. There are small scratches on the top middle (see Photo) and sides. That’s 30 years of existence at work. The rest of the wear and tear is negligible.

Everything else works as expected. The D50, in my humble opinion, still has the best feeling semi-weighted keyboard on any synth, new or old. Cleaner than most but not mint. Priced as it is because I know where it’s been.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“You could be bidding on this vintage Roland D50 synthesiser that has been owned by me since new.
It was lightly gigged 25 years ago and mostly stored since.
It comes with a Five Star hard case, manuals and a new mains lead.

The case has some discoloured, softened foam inside where I’d glued extra foam, but is otherwise very solid.
The keyboard has one noticeably scratched area just above the keys and one long scratch underneath.
There are other tiny marks but they are very minor.
The overall effect is very presentable.

The LCD display is good. The LEDs work. All the keys work, with velocity sensitivity and after-touch,
(if programmed in a sound patch).
After-touch is one of the few things known to fail on these keyboards, so it’s a nice little bonus on this machine.
When working, it can be used for pitch, vibrato, timbre and volume, as set up in each sound.
Every thing I can test works. I have never used the midi facility.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

used50 ” An iconic synth from the 80s with awesome fat LA Synth sounds that you just can’t get anywhere else. In good shape, I found it covered in duct tape and with a few keys not playing. After a thorough cleaning, all but one key plays perfectly (C#4) and it plays perfectly via MIDI! Awesome sounds all reset to factory. Battery replaced and working perfect! Volume slider is a little scratchy but I leave it on full and run it through my system. It’s worth it for the sounds.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

It does make sound but it needs to be pressed very hard. It is missing a couple screws on the left hand side and the toggle switch on the top looks like the tip has broken off. Other than that it seems to be in working condition otherwise. All of the other keys seem to work fine and all of the electronic functions seem to work as well. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
