buying used gear??

So tomorrow im checking out a Roland Fantom X6 for $650 from Craigslist. I was wondering what to look for while im checking it out to make sure it works, so I dont get ripped off. Could there be something where after 30 minutes it turns off? Im not to familiar with hardware so any help would be appreciated. If there ends up being an issue, is it expensive to fix? Thanks for the help

Yep, turn it off after 30, turn it back on. Unplug it, try a different plug in the wall. Push every button also. Best if you find one from Guitar Center used, they sell all over the country, or another retailer. At least they have a return policy.

Definitely test the whole unit. I got mine for $500 off CL and most buttons didn't work. I needed about 15-20 pots replaced and they are very delicate!
