Subject: [AH] Jupiter-8 problem!!!

Hello analogue AH's I have a few questions: a problem with my jupiter-8
which I recently aquired. This is what it is doing:

1)the bender box: VCF and VCO mod(the white button for mod lfo) does not
work when the VCO and VCF is assigned.???yes I have turned up the faders all

the way as well! what could be wrong???

2)the other problem is while playing in WHOLE MODE: the 2nd OSC of the 4th
voice has no sound(poly-2 i think). When i first got the machine, I played
down the keyboard starting at the top and every 8th note did not work, now
instead I can play the same note over and over again and its always the 4th
voice OSC 2 that does not work.does this sound like a a OSC chip.....but it
does not happen all the time???

3)when holding down the numbered buttons to the right of the display 1 and 3

while powering on the jupiter-8, the display shows the version of keyboard
scanning, after that every time I play a note the buttons light up(led's) is

this meant to happen on normal power up operation?(without holding down
buttons 1 and 3?
