Well looks like you have a capacitors problem. I had this problem too and a friend soldered two new capacitors in place. You can find information on the korg forum but most important is to know where the capacitors are located

Why is gm voice not playing?


Hello, You may want to reset your machine, all data and pre loaded programs, for this you must turn on your M50 press the global mode button, click on the top arrow next to (basic) select option 2, load pre-preloaded demo data, you then choose all (PCG and demo songs). press OK. Your Korg will re install all factory samples, data and settings. Once completed It will then instruct you to turn off your machine. give it a minute or so to self upgrade before turning it back on, once you turn it back on you should see updating panel notifications right and left, you should be able to use all of the sounds and combi's available for M50. that's a factory reset. I hope this helps, Have a great day.

Korg m50 freezes, read in other forums that the problem may be to replace 2 capacitors, do anybody knows wich ones? or have a solution?


Hello, I own a Korg M50 myself and I had the same issue, its a quality control issue at their factory but, I may have a solution for you I found at a Korg forum. the issue is with these teeny cables inside the synth. you open the rear panel and firmly press each teeny cable into the terminals again and re attach and secure them firmly just finger push them all into their teeny sockets. this should stop the freezing I tried it the synth played all night with out freezing . I hope this helps other wise the solution with the capacitors is simple you order a new mainboard but they run about 400 plus. but try my solution it may work for yours this answer comes from a korg tech, he stated 90% of this freezing issue he has encountered has been these loose teeny cabling adapters, hope this helps, Have a great day..

Korg Wavestation EX LCD Screen Info disappears!


This is characteristic of a poor contact someplace within the unit NEAR the connections for the display. It may also be a bad plated-thru-hole in the circuit board. This problem could also be on the display circuit board itself. They often have a complete microprocessor right on the display itself.

The vibration from the keys causes the connection to break, and the re-cycling of the power sends enough of a pulse to break down the oxide at the poor connection.

These can sometimes be found with freeze spray circuit cooler and often by applying gentle pressure at suspect points on the boards and looking for changes.

It for certain is a get out and get under repair involving taking out a lot of case screws and VERY careful handling of the cables within the unit.
