Juno 6 Bender issue

Post by wjames » Sat Mar 03, 2018 11:30 pm

I picked up a used Juno 6 and am trying to run test/calibration. When increasing the DCO bender sense slider,from 0-10, the note played changes pitch with out moving the bender. Is this normal? I don't believe it is.

I am trying to trouble shoot the problem . I downloaded the manuals but there is no diagram for the bender board. Can I get a copy of this diagram? Any help with what could be causing this would be appreciated.

Bender alignement is off.

there is a potentiometer on which the bender-lever is mounted. You unscrew the lever slightly from the shaft of the pot and then turn the pot until the pitch does not vary with the DCO Fader.

Make sure the tuning pot on the back of the synth is centered.

Have the same problem with my Juno 60. Good to know it's a simple fix. Thanks AK.
