Dear Anatomy Dissector,

Splendid work, you clearly have a passion for this type of
interest. Hope you can use your great skills to earn a good living!

I have a touchscreen problem with the device occasionally working,
then not working (Korg M3). Korg maintain touchscreens do not fail, but some contact/earthing issue possibly does. Might your dissection cast any light on this possible issue and how to resolve?

There are many (at least dozens) of such failures on the M3, any help would be appreciated.

I have to agree on the touch screen.

This is definitely the worst part of the M3m design.
An iPad controller would be a dream come true.
Or if editor software would allow us to bypass
the touch-screen, I'd buy it in a flash.

I didn't look at the photos because I was required to download them.
And I've already opened my M3m up once & taken a good look.
I did that when I installed McHale's 1 Gig SD Ram mod.

Thanks guys, I will be approaching Korg and helping them
to help us to sort matters out for good. I am confident of their
positive assistance as we all want to maintain these totally incredible
machines in their top performing position, n'est pas?

Please also have a look at Stephen Kay's Forum, some interesting
innovative comments there,

It looks as if this is a contact/earthing type problem, I will report back
with progress news shortly.

All of us owe you if you can get anything done.
Start a thread & keep us posted please Dogenes (not Diogenes?) Club.
I think this is a wide-spread problem.

I don't know what causes it. But you're prevented from doing basic stuff
because of touch-screen failure.

I think a software bypass or an iPad app would be ideal for me.

Thanks Guys, Thanks GURN? . Yes, user name was registered as
DIOGENES CLUB but came back as DOGENES! Will continue as
latter for this thread and then get it changed....but what the....

I am taking careful notes of my patient (the M3) and watching and noting signs and symptoms. I have been re-calibrating almost immediately on
start-up and that has kept me going very well; I shall be grateful if any interested party should post similar observation notes so we can establish an accurate FAILURE PATTERN and then, pin point diagnosis, with perhaps plus or minus variations?

So far: I am led to propose it is not necessarily the T/S which is failing, but a calibration signal property associated with it because the T/S system DOES recover FULLY for a few days, before reverting to the characteristic failure mode. This 'failure mode' is only a partial T/S fail, and from other people's comments, every different individual gets a different and UNIQUE failure pattern, but consistent to type.

This would indicate a signal related to, but not necessarily intrinsic to, the T/S?

Shall also be contacting the T/S manufacturers and
getting their views.

Agree that this IS definitely a problem with the M3, it NEEDS sorting, and appreciate all parties doing heads up to it!

Will be most pleased to keep thread going and hopefully get pinpoint diagnosis. I am sincerely pleased to help the Korg community and a great, great synthesiser. Catch you soon!
