Korg Monopoly - No Sound

Post by changeofeyes » Tue Aug 20, 2013 2:00 am

I'm about to pick up a Korg Monopoly with custom case for $200. The owner had it for 30 years, he said it powers up but doesnt produce sound. Does anyone know what the issue might be? If it's common or fixable?

For $200, you can't go wrong !! (IMHO). Take it to a good tech and spend $400-500 on repairs and you'll still come out ahead.

Too many posibilities to do much good via text.

1) Power supply (esp. op-amp rails)
2) Broken/corroded output jack (Does headphone out work?)
3) Dead volume pot.
4) Mice/idiots at work inside.
5) Dead VCF
6) Dead VCA
