Hello! I have the Kurzweil Mark Pro TWOi piano. Suddenly some keys make strange sounds through the speakers, like distrortion or noise. The speakers seem to be fine, because the demo songs play perfectly....


Try to re-initialize the unit(factory reset). If the keys are the problem then the rubber key contacts need to be cleaned or replaced. Contact a local service center for help.

How do I activate speakers on Clavinova CVP 601 piano after having disconnected the head phones


It is likely the contacts on the headphone jack are sticking. If you're lucky, spraying some contact cleaner into the input will loosen it. Be careful not to get the spray onto the rest of the cabinet o the keys. If that doesn't work, you will need to take the unit apart so you cab get to the part to clean it.

Hi, I just got a new williams allegro digital piano, and the right speaker sounds noise with low keys.


If this is a brand new unit, exercise your warranty!

BUT FIRST see if packing material worked through the speaker grill... you know littel pieces of the packing peanuts or otherr contamination that sits in the speaker cone and rattles.

I have a Roland FP 1 digital piano, serial #AL21141N. It has gradually quit putting out sound through the speakers. At the onset of the problem, I could fit it by jiggling the 1/4" speaker plugs,...


I first would suspect the switches on the eadphone jack. Normally these cut off the speakers when headphones are plugged in. These jacks and the switches are really weak, poorly made, and easily broken, especially if headphone cord gets yanked.

My Korg c15s has a lot of grating staticky noises when played ....I'm told it cannot be repaired as Korg no longer makes parts for this model?


I have a Korg C-15s and also experiencing loud crackling sounds when I turn it on. The problems seems to be either the sliding volume control or the amplifier itself. Honestly though, I believe the issue is the volume control. I opened my piano to get a closer look and attempted to clean the contacts on the volume. Unfortunately after cleaning the contacts, the crackling sounds became somewhat worse. After I turn the piano on, the volume control is generally rendered useless......volume set to low volume and the noise is quite loud and other times the volume control is set high and get very low volume crackling noise. No real consistency. The noise does diminish after a few minutes but so does the piano sounds to an inaudible level. There were a couple of instances where I turned it on and surprising enough, no no noise and perfect sound. For these reasons I believe the issue is within the volume control and not so much the amplifier. I have an electronics background and noticed that the volume control is very unique in design and is not something that can be substituted with another volume control from other sources.

My recommendation is to check the sound quality of the audio from the RCA L/R audio outs on rear of the piano by connecting to a stereo receiver. If it sounds fine you're in luck. If the crackling sound does not diminish after a few minutes like mine does, I would suggest disconnecting the internal speakers and using the audio out only. You can connect a pair of studio monitors or high quality computer speakers, preferably with a small subwoofer to deliver the full audio range and deeper tone of a real piano. I'm currently using a basic pair of Logitech computer speakers and is quite acceptable until I can afford a high quality set of monitors or relocate my piano closer to my high quality Yamaha receiver.

I hope this info helps a bit.

Yamaha DTXtreme IIS Drum Moduel repair


Listen to the output with headphones to check for noise.

OFTEN the output of a drum machine is CORRUPTED by an inadequate sound system. The waveforms generated by a drum machine tax the sound systems. A bass drum output can drive the speaker cone such that it goes beyond the linear range that the speaker and amplifier can handle and this appears as "noise". The noise may sound like a buzz or totally break up.

Turn the volume down and see if EXACTLY the same noise appears at low levels. If not, then saturation of the amp and speaker is likely. Continued use while it is doing that will often destroy the speaker.
