Keys C anf F# don't work in all octaves. Could you tell me what the problem could be?


it could be a problem with the key scanning circuit not getting the signal from the keybed. it could be caused by a bad connection, for example on a ribbon cable between the keybed and the logic board. one "simple" thing to try is to carefully open the keyboard up and see if there are cables going from the keybed to a logic board that could be unplugged and replugged. sometimes oxidation builds up on connections and the act of unplugging and plugging back in will scrape the contacts. i had a similar problem to yours on a roland, but it took fixing a bad connection to a surface mount resistor that was part of the keyscan circuit - this required a schematic and component layout from a service manual to solve. it also required the use test equipment and some careful soldering. be careful if you go inside, you don't want to make things worse and it needs to be properly reassembled, that is if you need to hand this off for professional repair. another consideration is you don't want to discharge static electricity off your finger into the delicate electronics. 50,000 volts can easily fry circuits - even if a discharge is lower, you begin to compromise the electronics which would make it fail sooner. bench techs use anti-static straps for good reason. the bottom line is, with some careful precautions you could get lucky and fix this yourself, IF the problem is that simple (and mine was not that simple.)

R50e laptop


It's probably your power jack inside your laptop. It's attached to your motherboard, it's not making a connection with the cable when you plug it in.

Or you might have to call a local repair shop.

How do I replace one key?


You will need to gain access to the keybed, remove screw from back of keybed the fix it to the base of the keyboard. Slide the keybed back making a gap of about 2cm at the front of the keybed.

Look at the back of the key towards where it pivots and you will see a small arrow, push something like a credit card between the keys at this point and the key will pop up, you can then slide forward releasing the key.

If you need more info please ask.

MY IBM R50E LAPTOP USB PORT NOT WORKING PLS GIVE ME A SOLUTION . I TRIED A LOT BUT D'NT GET ANY RESULT .


The cables that are connected to the ports maybe malfunctioning. usually the computer provides its own compartibilty. The user is supposed to acquire cables to be compartible with what is already provided. Check on the cables brands to ascertain the software program codes required to hyrbid the missing links.

Input devises are not supported


If you are useing USB mouse and keyb, you may activate the support for legacy / USB keyboard and mouse in the BIOS. The less problematic way is to use the PS2 mouse and keyboard.

Good luck!

IBM Thinkpad has many colors and will not load


You may have a loose video connection ot faulty video card.
Connect an external monitor to the video port of the laptop, power up the monitor first then the laptop, the video data will automatically to the external monitor if the video card is OK. If it works, then backup your music, photos and video etc.
Then power down and reseat the video cable/connector.
If the you do not get a video image on the monitor then the video card or the video RAM is faulty. The video RAM uses part of the main RAM module, reseat the RAM module/s, if this doesn't work get it tested at your friendly computer shop. If the RAM tests OK then the video card is faulty and is part of the motherboard, it cannot be fixed and a replacement motherboard may not be a cost effective solution.
In this case, remove the hard disk and put it into an USB hard disk adapter case and connect it to a working computer's USB port and you will be able to copy/backup your files to CD/DVD disks. You can also use this as an external USB hard drive for backups and file transfer, don't forget to remove the Windows folders from this drive as it is no longer needed and it will free up disk space.

Sticky keys on Korg extreme


I just changed the key on my Korg Triton Studio 61. It took some time, but it wasn't that hard. You'd better have a power screw driver. I had to take out at least 30 screws.

Do this at your own risk. Don't blame me if you mess up your keyboard. I'm telling you. If you're not that handy, don't try it. Pay attention to detail and be careful.

The Steps that I took

1) Turn your keyboard face down. Make sure you put it on something soft so that you don't scratch the face of your keyboard or damage your knobs or the pitchbender.

2) Remove all the screws on the bottom panel and remove the panel.

3) you have to take the entire keybed out. Lots of screws! I had to remove the "assignable - midi input/output board" to get it out. MAKE SURE THAT YOU DISCONNECT ANY CABLES THAT CONNECT THE KEYBED TO THE REST OF THE KEYBOARD. I had to disconnect the keybed at three different places. These connector cables are NOT strong and if you pull too hard, you WILL break them.

3) Once you get the keybed out, you have to remove the plastic binder that goes at the back of the keybed. It holds the keys in place.

Then Snap the old key out. snap the new key in. Before you unpack your new key, make sure the old one is really broken. I had a key that wasn't broken. It had just come unsnapped. I snapped it back in and it was fine.

Put it all back together again.

I had a broken key before. i got it repaired and it cost me $150. This time I fixed it myself and it cost me $7.50
