This answer was rated:

Roland EV-7 expression pedal apprx. 12 years old. Used with Roland VR-760. Stopped working after approx 6 months not being used. Is there anyone who can repair this and is it worth it.

These pedals are a little more complicated than simple damper pedals, but since they are worth $100, let's take a look. There are contacts that touch when you press the pedal. Since it was sitting unused, it's probably just a bit dirty. You can take it apart from the bottom to inspect the pedal, and give it a good cleaning.

If you aren't comfortable opening it up, you can take it to any full service electronics repair shop to have it done. It should only be about one hour labor.
