I've just bought an old Roland RD300s Stage piano and I'm having a problem with the hold pedal, As soon as I plug in the pedal the hold is on automatically and I have to press and hold the pedal down to take it off. I've tried reversing the wiring on the pedal but no luck. When the pedal is not plugged in the piano plays as normal ie no hold on.
Can anyone help me with this really annoying problem?
I've so far tried three pedals all with the same result.
Just to rule out another obvious point, you are plugging it into the "damper" socket on the rear panel?
Using a non-Roland brand pedal with a Roland keyboard also causes problems. Is your pedal a Roland brand?
