What about exchanging the unit for a different (ideally healthy) one from 
the place you purchased from?  That'd be a lot safer than sending it to 
Oberheim, I'd wager.

Incidentally, I noticed a sporadic wierdness upon power-up for the first 
two or three months that I owned my Plex; about once every ten or twenty 
times it'd start getting spastic when I switched it on.  Since those 
first two or three months, I haven't encountered the problem since.
