Second hand issue?

Post by HIMA » Thu Aug 04, 2016 2:45 am

I'm looking to buy a second hand prophet and got this from the seller

I have noticed from time to time that shortly after turning on the Prophet, it sort of emits a little burst of noise (like filtered down white noise) a couple times and then stops. It is not loud but it is audible. I have not enquired to DSI about it because it is so minor. It lasts for probably about 5-10 seconds or so and then it doesn't do it any time after that. It doesn't happen every time either. It is weird. I haven't updated the firmware and that could easily take care of the problem.


anyone else experience this? does it perhaps point to a wider issue?
