I've got Creative Inspire M2600 model. When I increase/decrease the volume using volume controller knob, sound in the right speaker goes off.


Does it come back after your done adjusting? Or do your have to do something else to get it back? If its just during adjustment then its probably the design of the speakers.

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.

Cant get sound to work


Hello welcome to Fixya, there several reasons that can cause the sound not to work on your computer.The first thing you should do is to check the volume on your computer to make sure that the volume is up and if you keyboard has volume button make sure that the volume is up.If you done all of this and still can't hear no sound please go to the manufacturer website and download the sound drivers for your computer. You can also download the sound drivers from other websites such as:
http://download.cnet.com/1770-2120_4-0.html?query=sound+drivers&searchtype=downloads&rpp=10&filter=platform=Windows&filterName=platform=Windows&tag=ltcol
http://en.kioskea.net/download/drivers-135
http://www.driverdownloading.com/drivers/Sound_Card_Driver.html
Please remember that if you see the word audio drivers that also mean sound drivers.
Thanks for choosing Fixya

I have no volume what so ever


There is a volume control on a desktop (windows) pc at the bottom right of the screen.
click on it and unclick the 'MUTE' control.
This should restore the sound, if not turn up the volume controls tll you you hear something.

I am seeking to restore my computer to an earlier date to get my sound back


You can only restore once you have made a restore point. Then you can restore your system back to the time of that restore point. I don't think going back to a set restore point is going to fix your sound unless you made changes to volume and configurations like muting your sound. Restore points won't put your drivers back in if they are damaged or missing. Open "Control Panel" and then go to "Sound and Audio Devies" Click the option to put volume in taskbar and then open the volume control. Make sure that "Mute" isn't checked and slide the volume controls back up. You should also go to "Control Panel" and "System" then to "Device Manager" and make sure you can see your sound card an that there isn't a mark next to it. Check with the manufacturer of your computer system and see if there are updated drivers for your sound card.
