I bought a Novation Supernova 2 second hand about 5/6 years ago and I've had lots of fun with it over the years. But now it's come to the time when I fancy investing in new equipment, so alas I have to part ways with it.
I have always been cursed with a dodgy knob which appears to jump increments or sometimes even go the wrong way. I have always managed to work around this problem, but now that I am selling it I have decided to actually fix it.
I have looked through various threads mentioning this problem, and it appears to be a problem with the encoder. People have mentioned giving it a clean, and if that doesn't work then perhaps replacing it. However my problem is that the encoder is attached to the circuit board.
I have attached some pictures and circled the knob in question.
Will I have to unscrew the whole circuit board to access the encoder?
And after I clean it and it is still not working, is it hard to replace the encoder?
I do not have much knowledge on circuit boards...etc, but am not an idiot, so would it be worth fiddling around inside it to save money on sending it in to a service centre?
Apologies for the long post, I would appreciate any help or feedback.
I'm in the UK if that makes any difference.
