Oops, let me rephrase that. I have a Farfisa 250 RSE that was a gift from a friend, unfortuneately mice got into the electronics and caused corrosion, the keyboards were working but intermittently, there were snap, crackle, and pops sounds emulating from the speaker, one day it gave a big hiss and all sound dissapeared, I have knowledge of electronics and was able to get a manual on this model but have been unsuccesful to get it up and running, I have audio output but it seem that there is a general problem with the keyboards input, I suspect a capacitor has malfunctioned but have been unable to locate the problem.

My question is, is there anybody out there that can help me solve this technical problem, I would be so grateful if anybody could help me, as this organ has such a beautiful sound and I really enjoy playing it.....:confused:

I suggest you ask the very knowledgable people here:

And don't look down on these instruments! They're finally starting to get more valuable now, and so for good reason, because there is NO modern digital keyboards who can emulate them completely. They have (so far) been completely left behind by the whole "retro"/emulation wave.

I cannot help but heartily chuckle when reading about *Farfisa*. In Swedish it means dad-fart - Far = dad, fisa = fart/flatulence.
