Roland Juno Gi Distortion

Hi there,

My Roland Juno Gi started making this AWFUL distorting/hiss/white noise sound, does anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this?

I have recorded it below:


Any suggestions are really welcome.

This a common problem with this synth. Try the software update, it helps a little

first things first: have you checked power supply, cables, levels, amp etc? does it happen to both left and right channels?

battery could also be the issue. also try a factory reset maybe.
software update's a good shout too. can't hurt matters

Hi there,

Thanks so much for your replies.

I think I can rule out power issues as the problem occurs when it is plugged directly into the wall or when using batteries.

With regards to the outputs, the problem occurs in both Left and Right channels, and also the headphone output. In whichever amp/interface/desk I plug it into it does that distortion.

I did try factory set and software update, but no joy.

Some suggestions I received from friends were:

- Motherboard has cracked/broken in some way
- Volume Potentiometer (This seems quite unlikely as the sound happens all the time not just when turning up the volume)
- The internal amp has broken in some way.

It's infuriating as I bought it second hand, and its been fine for 8 months - it hasn't been mistreated in the slightest.

Because its second hand, I cannot claim it on the warranty, even though it was only purchased at the end of 2011, and so the 3 year warranty should still be active. I cannot contact the original owner, but I do not really want to fork out a huge amount of money getting it repaired.

Sadly I do not have the technical ability to open it up to see what's wrong with it!
