I have a Juno 106 that is in excellent physical condition, my only problem is that I'm getting some unintentional static on certain voices. I've tried different cables (I get the same static out of the headphone jack, by the way), had the jacks, pots, and circuit board cleaned and tested and still I get the static. I've read that this may be a problem with the voice chip. There are replacement chips available on Ebay for $80.00.
My question is, has any one actually replaced one of these chips as a solution to this or any similar problem or will I be throwing $80.00 down the toilet? I have the technician who can replace the chip, but I want to know if I'm even on the right track here to fixing this problem. Has anyone actually done this chip replacement, and how did it work out? I'm in love with the sounds of this synth and I use it extensively, but it's unusable right now.
