Hi

I have put together a video (45 minute long) about replacing the faulty encoders that are often a problem on the Origin desktop, I dont know about the keyboard version but the details would be similar apart from removing it from the keyboard but as i don't have one i cant show it.

The video is here on Youtube :  https://youtu.be/Gb4ko72mViM

In it I show the complete disassembley and putting back togther again.

I replaced all 33 encoders with the Bournes PE16 series encoders which are of a higher quality than to factory fitted Chinese ones but you might just want to replace a few.

I show which ones are needed, the tools to do it as well as some of the issues i faced doing the job.

Cost for the parts was approx $70 including shipping and tax to the UK from the USA.

The new encoders are made by Bournes and the part numbers are  as follows.

3x PEC16-4220F-N0024
Dentent with No Switch
OSC waveform, Filter Type, LFO waveform

8x PEC16-4020F-S0024
No Detent with Switch
User white knobs around screen area

5x PEC16-4220F-S0024
Detent with Switch
Jog wheel, OSC select, Filter select, LFO select, ENV select

17x PEC16-4020F-N0024
No Detent with No Switch
Sequencer knobs and sequencer rate

I got them from http://www.digikey.com/

The datasheet on the Bournes encoders is here https://www.bourns.com/pdfs/pec16.pdf

Excellent video, Paul!

I'll probably be doing this one day... IMO Arturia should offer repair kits, with the full set of encoders to compensate for the sub-par items supplied in this expensive instrument ;)

Oh, and I also enjoyed your Vulcan video  ;D

Thanks guys for the comments, it would have been nice if i'd even got a reply when i was requesting to get it fixed by Arturia about 4 years ago.

I was under the impression that the encoders would have been special and expensive, if i'd have know what they were before i wouldn't have waited this long but its all done now, just need some time to get some music done now  :)

 :o WOW Paul this is absolutely fantastic!!!  You are our Local Hero!!

Truly a pure act of giving, putting this excellent video together. I'd like to buy you a pint or five sometime.

A BIG Thanks! Amazing work for all of us Origin owners!

Personally I would not trust myself to do this on my own but for any skilled repairer this is just great help. Hope this video stays long in youtube ;)

It will stay there as long as Youtube will let it.

It would be nice to other fixes that people have done to keep their synths going.  :)
