Prodigy Problem

Postby djsportsball » Mon Sep 17, 2018 3:05 pm

Just had my Prodigy rehabbed at the shop- one problem remains! Oscillator 2 can't get in tune at all. Is this something that can be calibrated through the little holes in the back?

You had it rehabed and it came back not calibrated? What did the "rehab" entail?

Here's the service manual. Calibration (Tuning) is in there.

The place that fixed it replaced 2 keys and fixed some damaged internal circuits. Everything works except osc 2 doesnt tune correctly. Sorry to be dumb, but I couldnt find a description of how to tune the oscillators from the rear holes in the link you shared. Any explanation for a layman would be very helpful!

Sorry. Wrong manual link. However, if you paid someone to fix "damaged internal circuits" and it didn't come back calibrated, I'd wonder what they did. Do you know which circuits they "fixed"?

Here's the manual for calibrating:

Thanks- that covers it, even though I don't understand it at all. I had it serviced at a random electronics place that does good work. They tested all the circuits and replaced some damaged ones, but theyre not synth guys. Want to buy it?

Sorry, but if they didn't calibrate it, I'm not sure what they 'fixed'. (Wave form? CV scaling? DC ripple?)

The price would have to reflect the mystery
