My Juno 60's stereo out only plays out of the left channel??

I opened it up inspected the area making sure all the connections were tight, cleaned the 1/4" output with deoxit... and still only the left channel has audio? the mono and headphone outs work perfect...

any suggestions?

I don't know about the Juno 60, but most synths with "stereo" outputs actually have them as two mono 1/4" outputs. One is used for mono or one channel of stereo, and the other is used for the other stereo channel.

Try plugging into both of the outputs (1/4" mono plugs, one per channel) and see if you get stereo.

Have you checked or tried to resolder the output?

It can be due damaged socket (that happened with time and usage) or because the solder joint is dry and have cracked.

I found a pic of the back panel of a Juno 60:


If you look at the output jacks, to get stereo you plug into both of the jacks (one stereo channel per jack), and for mono you plug into the jack closest to the level switch.
