$2.9M circuit board failure puts korg circuit on indefinite hiatus
The company that made the circuit board that caused the major crash in the world’s biggest concert circuit on Tuesday night has suspended operations until it can determine the cause of the problem.
The Korg circuit boards were manufactured by Korg, a Japanese company, and sold to dozens of countries and companies.
A number of companies have sold their own versions of the circuit boards.
It was the first time in a year that Korg was forced to suspend operations because of a circuit board problem.
The company’s board, which contained the loudspeakers, the digital audio system and a headphone amplifier, broke off as it was being assembled.
“We apologize to our customers and the wider music community for the inconvenience caused,” the company said in a statement posted on its website.
This is the first instance in the past year of a major company’s circuit board failing.
The board was manufactured by Yamaha, which has been known to manufacture faulty boards, and was part of a new wave of new products made by companies including Google, Apple and Microsoft.
In May, Korg’s board broke apart, sending thousands of speakers and amplifiers flying.
Since then, dozens of companies, including Yamaha, have recalled or repaired their boards.
“The impact of the incident has been felt by many people across the industry,” a Korg spokesman said in an emailed statement.
“The company is taking immediate steps to restore full functionality to all of our circuit boards, including the damaged one.”
In addition to the loudspeaker board, Kors circuit board and headphone amplifier boards were also damaged.
Korg said it would make repairs for those affected and will also be sending replacements to the affected businesses.
“We are working with the affected parties to find a solution,” the statement said.
Many of the affected shops and companies were closed.
Several hundred people attended the concert at Wembley Stadium in London, where about 60,000 people were in attendance.
The damage is being investigated by the British Transport Police, the Met Police and the Metropolitan Police Service.
The BBC said it was in contact with the British Foreign Office.
