Subject: [AH] Jupiter 8 Repair Help


I recently bought a Jupiter 8 that got damaged quite a bit in transit. It
seems to be not the analog part of the keyboard but the digital interface
that is problematic. Many of the switches and buttons are not working.
Patches can change but the switches for the most part do nothing. The patch
buttons and some of the other buttons (unison, etc) work only when you push
down on them very firmly. Also a few of the keys are not working across the
entire range of the keyboard...and diff ones do not work for diff
patches.....for ea octave the same keys don't work and this translates to
the next octave. UPS is not going to pay because the shipper packed it
horribly so I am going to need to send this out to someone. I have opened
it up and checked all the ribbon cable connections and all the connections
going into the digital interface boards (all connections period)and all are
intact and seated firmly. Anyone have any ideas as to what could be wrong
and the prognosis of being able to get the proper parts and/or someone that
is good that can fix it. I am in Orlando, FL. I do not have a tech I feel
comfortable with here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
