Question about Music
Pul right side audio cord slightly out and both sides work
I need more info to correctly troubleshoot this. However my best guess from what your telling me is that its either the Audio jack on the Korg or the headphones. If everything else is working properly replace the headphones and the Audio outputs. Post again with more details if that does not work

Okay, maybe this is rude, but TOTALLY ignore Musicaldude's solution, if you haven't already found out the ugly way. Boosting the signal that goes into the KP will just make the input LED light up red and you'll hear digital clipping [gross] and eventually hit a ceiling of all-crappy-staticy-noise and no real guitar left. Having it in the FX loop, and the Headphone-out workaround are smart moves already, except the Headphone out adds noticeable noise/hum vs the usual outs. But to help close the gap between your guitar's volume and the miniKP's internal synths (and program 63 and 65's feedback noizes, which build up even louder than the synths) unplug one of the RCA plugs from the KP's OUTput, pick one, left or right, whichever. You'll notice this gives you a guitar volume boost. BUT its still not enough...the synths and 63 and 65's feedback are still speaker-blowingly loud. Check the manual, it says you can adjust the wet/dry volume by holding down Tempo and Preset A together, then turning the knob and picking 1 thru 99. Make sure you're on the synth setting you want to use already. Do this thing. Play the synth with your finger, while you lower the number with that knob. Stay around 50 if you've got the one RCA plug dangling, around 20 if both are in. Whatever you think matches your usual playing volume. When its where you like it, hold the A or B button (wherever you want to save this) down and click Hold, this will save it onto that preset button. Now from now on, NEVER use 63, 65, or the synths if you're on whatever preset you DIDN'T just save. i.e. If you chose preset B, from now on you can just tap preset B and it remembers your volume adjustment from before, voila, normal-volume touchpad synth. But go back to preset A for every other effect, or you'll barely be able to hear the FX. KORG should've given us more preset buttons to save onto. Godspeed. I've never seen this site before, but I have this pedal, and experienced the same b.s. myself. Now I'm down to one preset button and quick knob-turning. Whee.

Try cleaning al of the sliders using an electronics cleaning spray. Choose one that contains a lubricant as well. Dirty sliders can cause this especially at low volume levels. If that does not cure the problem, there may be a defective IC inside the unit. Many mixers use opamp ICs as buffers and final stage amplifiers. These are inexpensive and can fail in that manner. Without knowing the specific make and model ogf your unit, I can't give you any details. Please post the make and model and I'll try to provide additional possibilities.

The preamp section has a problem. It could be anything in the preamp but is OFTEN the input jack itself. They take a lot of abuse.
Also the insert jack contacts that forward the preamp to the power amp if no external FX are used can go bad.
Additional things are circuit board cracks caused by rough handling and also controls that have had the knobs mashed in which can destroy the potentiometers they are connected to.
