Heya. It sounds like a single event or problem is effecting all of your synths! Since some of the 100m works, I'll take it for granted it's not an all-around fuse failure... What area do you live in and where were they stored? Some issues might be extreme temperature/humidity over an extended period of time, rats/mice chewing up internal wiring, or *most highly unlikely*, ball lightning. If they were transported over a long distance, some ICs and connectors may have become unseated or loose. Open the gear up and press down on any socketed ICs; wiggle and press any connectors into place. Use a voltmeter and confirm that the power supplies in each synth are producing the correct voltages. Please post your results; this is a strange problem! Best luck, Mike PS: Significant others come and go, but synths are forever (if you stock up on spare parts).
