This Roland Alpha Juno 1 came in for repair. After a quick test it was clear, that one voice was dead. Also one side of the Stereo Output didn´t work, or didn´t work well.

The dead voice was a quick find. A NOS IR3R05 chip was found in the internet. I socketed all of them.

I found a weak solder joint, which I reflowed. I carefully looked for more weak solder joints but they looked ok.

One output was working correct only with the slider potentiometer in full position. As soon as I moved the slider one side of the output dissapered. Time for a new slider. Dirty like hell and the carbon trace was worn out.
