Korg Pa3X: RAM Battery Recall

Postby Mike Bracchi » 26 Oct 2012 22:11

Korg have discovered an unusual problem affecting a very small number of the Sample RAM backup batteries in both models (76 key and 61 key) of the Pa3X, which requires these batteries to be replaced.

In certain very extreme conditions, the faulty battery pack may not be protected against accidental short circuits, leading to possible extensive damage to the Pa3X and maybe even surrounding areas. Because the vast majority of batteries are not defective, and because the circumstances required to cause the problem are so extreme, Korg's regular QC tests and outside certification companies only discovered this problem in April 2012.

Since Korg have no way of tracing which Pa3X have the faulty batteries, all the batteries installed in units manufactured before April 2012 must be replaced as a precautionary measure.
