When many were reporting problems with the FR7/7x cables on Yahoo Roland accordion forum, Roland USA sent some of the posts to Roland, Italy, and Roland Italy issued an improved version and made it available free at least for the 7x owners. I understand there is no more Roland, Italy per se but I thought we could make a concerted effort to do something about the 7x screen issue. Fortunately, a few days ago I was able to get 3 Roland LCD screens from a friend overseas. They are all reserved for other 7x friends. I spoke with a computer engineer who deals both with hardware and software. He said that it is not easy to manufacture something like that and that it wouldnt be economical. The last time that I spoke with a Roland certified technician I was told that Roland is looking for a contractor. By the way, I was told that the same LCD screen is used for the Roland R09hr wav recorder. https://www.roland.com/us/products/r-09hr/ The recorder is also discontinued. Has it been 10 years or so since the first release of the FR7x? I remember a local Roland dealer saying that companies must supply parts for 10 years by law? I also spoke with an aerospace engineer who works on midi accordions. He did some major work on my accordions. I sent him the 7x schematics to see if what he could come up with in terms of the screen. I am trying to help myself and fellow 7x players. We are in the same boat!
