You might check settings first. The keyboard might be set to a mode where those keys have some function besides notes. Try a master reset and see if hings start working.

If it was working and now those keys don't, a fault has probably developed. There may be problems with connections to the keyboard, or there's been a component failure.

Sometimes getting into these things and accessing the keyboard is a challenge, and it's possible to do more harm than good. If it needs repair, you're probably better off taking the keyboard to a musician's store in your area and asking them to give you an estimate for the work (or to recommend a servicer if they don't do the work themselves).

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!

I have three keys getting malfunctioned /cords not changing in left side, on split board.can this be fixed?


If those keys work normally, it's hard to see how the key switches themselves can be bad.
Is your keyboard MIDI capable? If you play the same chords, does the MIDI output look OK?
Could it be that your keyboard simply can't play all of the different sounds at the same time? I know some are limited in how many simultaneous tones can be played.

No sound from first 10 keys on left side of keyboard


Most likely a ribbon connector has come loose between the keyboard and main board. If you're uncomfortable dis assembling your instrument, I'd take it to a repair shop.

Can I hit one key to play a chord and how do I do it


It depends exactly on the model of keyboard you have but in short look for the accompaniment button normally on the left hand side. With this pressed you can then get 1 finger chords in the left hand ( 2 fingers will give minor or 7th options ) check your handbook

How to replace a defective speaker on the Casio CT-638 tone bank keyboard


Hi, Yes it can be fixed.

It may not need fixing, It may have just worked loose. If it is faulty then any general purpose speaker that will fit will be OK. Consider replacing both if the replacement is radically different.

Speakers can be as cheap as a few pounds.

Paying someone to do the repair is something else. It will take longer to take the keyboard apart than affect the repair.

Consider buying a replacement from eBay, second hand, and get a competent amateur to repair yours!!

Failing that, use the headphone out (which cuts the internal speakers) into a hi fi or external instrument amp.

Good luck, Chris the Fader.

Some keys on the left side are not giving sound when played and the master volume is loosing can it be fixed or should i have to buy a new master volume


It's about hardwares.
Wiring connection sockets is loose.
Inside the korg PA50,Wiring connection to the keyboard is separate to left and right.
Open/disassemble your korg.
Look for connection cable to the left keyboard.
One end is on the keyboard,the other end is at the mainboard.
Unplug both of it, then mounted again.
For master volume,better buy new one.

Hi The first 11 keys of our keyboard have not woked since new. If my girls press the play/pause button then it works. Is this a fault of the keyboard or are we doing something wrong? Thanku


Check the switch to be sure the keyboard is in normal mode and not chord mode. This will cause there to be no sound unless you play a chord on those first 11 keys. Pressing play activates whatever song is loaded at the time, allowing full keyboard use.

I have an older Casio, and the same thing happens all the time, especially when I'm in a hurry and don't check where I put the switch.


Hope that helps!

FIVE KEYS NOT OPERATING ON THE LEFT HAND END OF KEYBOARD. HAVE TAKEN BACK TO FACTORY SETTINGS BUT PROBLEM REMAINS


It's a hardware problem. You won't be able to fix the problem yourself. It has to be serviced by Yamaha. For that price it's probably just better to purchase a new model.
