THE STUPID A80017 CHIP
I decided that everyone seemed to think D'naab's chips where very good and bought 2. Then I bought my Juno 106 broken, opened it up and replaced the chips. It worked fantastic! Unfortunatedly one of the other old chips decided to go.
I finally broke down and ordered the sliders and stuff from Hong Kong.
They were pretty expensive for just some sliders and plastic, but what
can you do? They are the only ones who make it. After taking 3 months to
ship I got them and opened the Juno up to make it cosmetically right. I
wish I had the D80017 chip at this point but I didn't. Anyway that went
great and now all the sliders work properly.
I ordered another 2 chips, because I also had an ailing MKS-30. And heard about this new technic of removing the vinyl coating with acetone. So I finally got around to trying it and ... FAIL. But there is the possibility it was the IR chip that had failed, so I haven't given up on it. Anyway I put one of the new chips in and now I could hear that chip 6 was starting to go. FUCK! So I will try the acetone treatment on either the Juno's bad chip or the MKS's one and we'll see what happens.
