Voyager LCD Screen Glitches

Postby my_oh » Mon Feb 18, 2019 7:53 pm

Hey guys,

Have been having a problem with my Voyager Performer - couldn't find any related issues on here so am asking you guys.

Problem involves only the detented knobs on left side of panel (OCTAVE, DESTINATION, SOURCE, SHAPING) when I turn these knobs the setting doesn't always fully settle and sort of jumps back and forth between settings. This also gets reflected in the LCD screen where I can see the setting sort of flickering/jumping between settings. If i'm really fine with the knob setting I can get it to settle fairly easily.
I've recorded a video to demonstrate but it's pretty big! can attach if that would help make things clearer.

I have some electronics experience (have built a few synths and Yocto 808 drum machine) and am handy with a soldering iron so I opened up the back and re-seated the 16pin data cables on the board which houses all the knobs. It seems to have helped with the LFO SYNC & MOD WHEEL DESINTATION knobs but still OCTAVE knobs are pretty unstable!

Any suggestions on where I could start in trying to fix this problem?

Cheers,
Grant

Unplug it, wait a few minutes, and open the back and check the input jack board connections, the red one in particular. I had this problem, and Andy from Moog helped me troubleshoot it. Good luck.
