Rock Band Drums [Nov. 23rd, 2008|10:48 am]
After a long time, I finally got fed up with the fact that the yellow pad on my rock band drums would only register about 50% of the hits. So, I looked up the warranty (60 days) which wouldn't help even if I had gotten if fixed immediately after it broke.

I found this site: http://www.oxmonline.com/article/features/presses/how-fix-your-rock-band-drums, however, which allowed me to be brave enough to open up the pads and investigate if I'd have to solder.

As it turned out, the failure was that the wire from the pad sensor to the rest of the controller had become disconnected (or, at least loose). Since it was just a regular jumper, I just plugged it back in (which required more force than I expected), and suddenly it works again.
