SH Prophet with issue

SH Prophet with issue
« on: August 03, 2016, 08:15:24 AM »
I'm looking to buy a second hand Prophet and seller sent this to me today:

There is also one thing I want to discuss with the Prophet. This is VERY minor, but I feel I need to disclose EVERYTHING. The Prophet is in amazing condition and is 100% functional. 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. I dunno.

What do you guys think? Should I be concerned?

Mine doesn't do that. Small things are often the beginning of a more serious failure down the road.

Sounds like the power supply is about to go south!

Mine doesn't do that, and that doesn't sound like a firmware issue. 
Did you ask the guy to update the firmware to see if that solves the problem?
