Dead Jup 6

Post by Ianh » Tue Oct 12, 2010 10:42 pm

I have a jupiter 6 none of the sliders are working but it turns on. Does any one know what the problem could be? Is it work investing in?

I saw that too on CL. I've been really torn about whether to get it and fix it, but I've already bought one 61 key poly synth this week! The guy said that no sound comes out, since the volume control is broken, and he can't tell whether the presets work, but the power does work.

Yeah i haven't heard back from him. I asked him how it came to be broken. I mean if its some bad joints or something I'd buy it and fix it up. But if a bunch of the chips are fried i wouldn't be able to afford to fix it up. I'll see if he gets back to me.

While it's still listed, I'm going to guess that a Jupiter 6 for $300 is long gone! I happened to be on Craigslist when he listed it, and emailed him right away. This is what he wrote back to me when I asked about whether sounds comes out, or whether the presets work:
No sound and that is because the volume button is damage. I am not sure about the presets.
If I had the space and $300 I would have instantly bought it...I even thought about quickly selling some items, but I was stuck at work.
