This Access Virus TI Desktop Synthesizer was sent to me not working. What I often do is to look for cold solder joints. One of the pcb connectors had a cold solder joint.
I reflowed that cold solder joint and the Access Virus TI Desktop came back to life. Stable. All in all some solder joints didn`t look too great. I guess because of the lead solder and some moisture or and heat. So I reflowed a lot more, just to be safe. I hereby focused on mechanical stress, such as the audio jacks.
I’m documenting repairs for my reference and yours. I do synth restorations and repair with a specialty in vintage synthesizers, drum machines and other vintage gear, based in Düsseldorf, GER. Get in touch about your synth situation!
