That sounds like a manufacture date being flashed. Have you checked the battery? If you can't backup first, all your changes (custom sounds) will be lost, but that might be what you are looking at. Replace the battery, or have a service center do so. You'll want to reset after.

Try ROM check first.

Initialization: Hold Page + and Page - while turning it on.
Preload: Global Screen 5A, then select "OK".
ROM Check: Hold Edit and Global/Multi while turning it on.

Hold PROG and +10 while turning it on.

That should initialize the unit to factory fresh.

Hi,
if you do not already use a midi sequencing software try "Bome's SendFX". After installing, go to X5D menu 04A MIDI DUMP, choose data you want do dump (e.g. "all"). Make sure, that no SYSEX FIlter is active while working with a sequencing software.
After transmission, you can save the "yoursounds.mid" file and send it back to the X5D later.
Good luck!

Did you try to get to Global mode, and then check if the tune is 440 hz?
Check the Global Settings. The tuning might either be altered or the key transposed..

There's a watch type battery (flat disc) on one of the boards inside the X5D. This maintains the settings while the keyboard is switched off and could be the whole problem.
The keys are on two different circuit boards connected with a multi-pin cable. If the cable were dislodged I would expect it to simply cut off half the keys but it's probably worth checking.

For Combi/Multi patches you can disable control changes for each sound under EDIT 6D but this also switches off other control change instructions (pan, expression, pedal etc.).

Somewhere under GLOBAL settings you should be able to find the modulation wheel Depth setting and set it to 0 which should stop your mod wheel from working but you could achieve the same effect by just keeping the mod wheel pulled all the way down.

You can't always believe the display in regard to the model... Try finding the revision level display that will tell you what you have... It is NOT likely a seller would strip a X5D case to try to fool you.
Find what the difference is in the model and test your unit for that feature.

Each key has two contacts which close at different times as a key is pressed which is how key velocity is measured. The failing key has one contact that isn't making resulting in the velocity is measured at max velocity so it is LOUD.

You need to clean the contacts which are usually conductive rubber pills pressed against circuit traces on a circuit board under the keys. The contacts should be cleaned using 99% isoprophyl alcohol and Q Tips.

The power adapter may be failing... make sure you have the correct one. It sounds like the power may be marginal and when you start loading it including the sustain it gives out...More than this would be a very serious problem that would not have a DIY fix.

On page 105 of your X5D manual, read up about "transpose". Setting the transpose shifts the notes plus or minus from the normal.

If you don't have a manual, you can download one for free.

I will assume you want to sync the two as one. I have one of these sitting in a closet. The 3200 will record 12 tracks at a time if I remember correctly. I believe the Korg will sync to Midi Time code. I just wonder if the midi implementation allows for start and stop code. Anyway, I found this information:
x2. MIDI messages used by the D3200 Note On (Note, velocity), aftertouch, pitch-bend:
The D3200 uses these messages to control effects.
Program change:
The D3200 uses these messages to switch scenes.
Control change:
The D3200 uses these messages to control mixer and
effect parameters.
MMC (MIDI Machine Control):
MMC messages can be transmitted from the D3200 to control an external MMC-compatible sequencer or recorder. MMC messages received from an external sequencer or recorder can be used to control the D3200.
MTC (MIDI Time Code):
The D3200 can transmit or receive MTC messages to
synchronize with an external sequencer or recorder.
MIDI Clock:
The D3200 can transmit MIDI Clock. It can also receive MIDI Clock if you have selected MIDI Clock for the tempo track and are recording the tempo track.

http://www.korgforums.com/forum/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=70279&sid=0a3c1fcbb6e1dac75c1a6975f3a1292f I've found this in my files:
01/W Series Initialization: Hold Reset and Compare while turning it on. Preload: Global screen 7 Press G then E it will if OP turns off write protect in the global menu. None of the resets or reboots will do anything until the synth is allowed to use them. If write protect is ON all changes will be rejected.
