Two keyboard keys seem to have been transposed

Have just purchased a new Acer computer. When I press the "at" (@) key on the included keyboard, inverted commas(") appear instead. When I press the "inverted commas" (") key, @ appears instead. Is there an easy way for me to assign the correct values to these keys (and any others, if I come across them)?

Many thanks

Yes when going through the setting up procedure for your new computer you should have installed the British keyboard instead of the US one.

Doing the above will correct your problem.

My Ketron Sd5 seems to play a different key on the right than on the left. For example if I play a beat in the key of G (left) the right hand side plays in A. Can you help?


You need to check your manual for instructions on key transpose. The right side has been transposed one key higher. If you don't have the manual, try resetting the instrument by removing the internal battery and reinstalling it. Good luck!

Is there a way to program the whole keyboard to play 1 octave lower?


You can use TRANSPOSE/SETTING button.
Each press the TRANSPOSE/SETTING button cycles through the setting screens. If you accidentally pass the screen you want to use,keep pressing the TRANSPOSE/SETTING button untill the screen appears again.
To lower by one octave,set the value to -12

You also can use PIANO SETTING button.
Find the setting in page 07 of PIANO SETTING.

ACER ASPIRE laptop PgUbp key came off.


Unless I'm missing something, just put the key back where it belongs. Push down hard, and it'll snap back into its place. If this doesn't work, check the underside of the key. If you see broken plastic, you'll probably have to find a new key. Acer laptops seem to have a problem with keys coming out and breaking (just look at the number of times this question has been asked!)

hope this helps

Casio Chord is internal to the keyboard and doesn't come out on MIDI. Transpose is similar and while the button may send a MIDI transpose type signal out, the notes will not transpose in your computer...

If the plastic hinges and the tiny rubber press contact are still on the keyboard, you can align the key over the plastic hinge and press firmly down until you hear the key click back in place.

4 keyboard keys aren't functioning


Chances are there is a physical problem with the keyboard. Are the keys sticky or do they press normally and still not work? If the keys are sticky when you push them you can remove the keyboard and keys and try to clean the keys with rubbing alcohol. Chances are the keyboard is not defective and the link below will help you take care of that problem. If you need any further help let me know.

I am including a link to a new keyboard for your model Laptop. They are fairly reasonable condidering they are laptop keyboards.
