Slighty different constant sound problem

Postby lychelige » Mon Sep 19, 2011 7:05 pm

I just got an old Jupiter 4, traded it for two Korg Electribes.
Well, it has a defect and that's why he wanted to let it go...
Whenever you turn the mashine on, sound comes out of it.
You can play the chords like normal, well everything is normal, exept that it plays constantly, from the moment you turn it on, till you turn it off...

The previous owner told me that he had talked to a technician who said that the problem is dusty switches or a problem with the trigger.

I was just wondering if anyone could verify that or maybe point me in a direction, as to how I can fix it?

did you check to see that the hold switch isnt on?

its possible your keys are sticking, you may need to have the contacts cleaned

It's not the hold button :-)
Actually I meant contacts when I wrote "switches"...
(That probably doesn't make any sense, but I'm from Denmark, so a little bit gets lost in translation ;-))
That's what the seller told me, contacts...

Well, I hope I can fix it with a good cleaning.
I've talked to a Roland repair shop and they wanted alot of money just to look at it, sadly there's not a lot of alternatives in Denmark to get old gear fixed, than to go directly to Roland's officials...

Well, I'll give it a go

Thanks :-)

So I cleaned the contacts... No difference...
Any other suggestions?
