Volume does not work Korg Microkorg Synthesizer with vocoder

The volume for this synthesizer works only when it's turned up all the way. When adjusting it from left to right, there are a bunch of clicks and pops but no sound.

    I pretty much have the same problem... i plug in a jack lead to L/MONO
    into my bass amp, i get nothing, also just putting headphones in the
    back i get nothing... i have ordered a USB/MIDI interface cable, but i
    don't want to have to keep using it through my laptop (that is if it
    works rather then doing what it already is doing...) any advice?

You might try to clean it. You can buy some tv tuner cleaner at radio shack. If that fails, then the pot. will have to be replaced. If you can solder and de-solder components its not hard to change out. When you open the unit up, the volume control or POT has a ohm value. Like 200, 250 ect…. It may have a K after it, that’s x 1000. Get the right size ohm value and replace it. Hope this is helpful.

Korg Microkorg XL Vocoder Not Working (No Sound)

Check the mic and connections all through its input into the unit. I would check the cartridge of the mic for continuity for the reason that (I think but not 100% sure) on this model, I think there has to be sound at the mic or it does go silent in vocode mode. This is how it digitizes the mic and keys together. The played keys cannot put onto pitch the sound it is NOT picking up at the mic. I think there is a problem with the mic.

Hello everyone. The dial on my microkorgXL which changes the operations of the knobs does not work, is it possible to fix this? Without it I can't change anything or use the on-screen editor. I haven't...

Sounds like a bad rotary encoder (the part that the "dial" is attached to"). If the circuit board or solder is not cracked in that area then that is likely the problem. You could find the part at (about $1) and would need desolder the bad encoder and solder the new one in place or get the whole PCBA(printed circuit board assembly) from Korg.

I have a Korg Microkorg XL. The volume control is not fully functioning. It won't get really quiet or really loud.

The volume control must be have dirt in it. When you move it do you hear rustling noise. A quick spray of WD40 spray into the control will solve the problem.

Our church has a Korg M50-88 synthesizer. The sustain quit working and we have tried 7 different pedals. Any suggestions?

It may not be the pedals as the fault can be oriented within the set.
So I think you can open the back of the set and check for all connections to be tight , remove and refit.
If this wont solve it is not adviseable to check this higly intergrated PCB without a help. So consult the Korg service.

Refer to page 222 in your PA800 user manual regarding calibrating the polarity of the damper pedal. The setting in your unit MAY have gotten clobbered.
It is NOT clear if you have a PA800 or M50-88. If you have the latter, then read page 22 of your user manual where it says in certain modes the sustain can be set to affect only certain voices. Again, see if internal parmeter settings may have been clobbered to disable the sustain.

How to use the four ouputs in korg pa800

Go to 226 has the audio output section.Page 19 has the rear panel explanation. Left/Right: These are the main stereo outputs. Use them to send the final stereo mix to an external device. Connect either to get a mono output. Set the output level with the Master Volume slider. 1/1: These are the sub outputs. Use these to create a stereo submix of just some tracks or to output just a single instrument to be mixed alone or to be processed or amplified externally. Not: the Master Volume slider has no effect on these outputs. Signal is sent dry with no effects applied. Hope this helps.
