SOURCE: a broken key on my keyboard Korg Trinity

I just fixed this exact problem today. It took me a while to figure out how to get to the key bed, but it's not impossible. I'll try to retrace my steps and describe them as well as I can:

- Turn the keyboard upside down on a table with the joystick hanging off the table. To make my directions easier to follow, the joystick should be on your left. When I say "front", I mean towards the keys, "back" towards the knobs.
- Have 3 cups for the different types of screws you'll find. A magnet-tipped screwdriver is *essential*, as some of the screws are hard to get to, and you don't want to lose them in there.
- Start by removing the bottom plate.
- Remove the right side panel -- there should be three bigger screws towards the front, and two smaller ones way down towards the back.
- Here's the tricky part... unplug all connectors from the center board. You might want to take some detailed pictures before you do that because there are some empty sockets on the board. It's actually easy to figure out what goes where because most connectors are of different sizes.
- Unplug the two red connectors that go to the left side of the key bed, and the one that goes to the small board on the key bed, but NOT the small white one. That's the aftertouch cable and it doesn't need to be disconnected.
- Unscrew the center board from the horizontal rail in the middle of the case. There should be 4 screws and a cable tie is connected to each one. There are 3 black screws in the back around the digital output slots (there wasn't a digital card on the Trinity I worked on.) -- unscrew those and remove the board VERY carefully not to pull any wires along the way.
- There are two silver plastic grounding slips -- one on the far left, one on the far right. I know you have to remove the left one, I'm not sure about the right one, but remove it just in case.
- Unscrew the long aluminum piece at the very front, the one that is under the keys when the keyboard is right side up.
- Unplug the small connector off the floppy drive. You can leave the ribbon cable connected. The are 4 screws (I think) that hold the floppy drive in place. Unscrew those and remove the drive.
- There should be 1 more screw holding the key bed in place, and it's right by one of the floppy drive screws. Get that one out and pull the key bed upward using the metal piece in the middle -- it may be stuck to the horizontal rail, even though it's unscrewed. Pry it up gently with a screwdriver if you have to. The key bed should come out. If it doesn't, check what might be keeping it in place. Don't ever force anything out of a keyboard.

OK, that's part one. Part two is fairly easy...

- Set the key bed on a table. Remove the long plastic strip at the top.
- To remove a black key, first you have to remove the two surrounding white keys. Grab the bottom part of the key (where you play it) and push towards the top (where there's a square hole). Pay very close attention to how the key is removed, because reinstalling it is the same way, just reversed (obviously). There's a flat spring underneath the key, don't worry if it pops out. It's pretty self-explanatory how to put it back.
- Remove the black key in the same manner. Most likely, the little tab that hooks the key onto the key bed is chipped or broken. In any case, you will need a new key -- unless, of course, it was just the spring that popped out.

Follow the instructions in reverse order to put it all back together. I typed this by memory, so I may have skipped a step or two. Taking this keyboard apart wasn't as easy as I expected, but not as hard as it looked. It just takes patience and being careful.

I hope this helps!

If this is happening on all keys it sounds like your aftertouch is not set right. You may not have gotten the key assembly lined up quite right also. Check these first.

Read the manual if you've got it. If not get in touch with Korg.com and they should be able to tell you and you might get a manual download.

SOURCE: korg pa-50 no sound from right speaker but has sound from left

Several things to check:

If the speakers are cut off when externaal cables are connected to line outs, possibly the jack sensing switch for the right channel thinks that a plug is in there... you might cycle one in and out to see if that might fix.

Another thing is they LIKELY have a PAN control setting and it might be set full left. The external MP3 would NOT be under PAN control, only the keyboard voices would be affected by it.

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.

How do I restore a dead key on a Korg X5?


What do you mean by applied graphite...graphite powder? That is not the solution I wouldn't think, you need to use a keyboard contact repair kit, which has a solution you paint on? Something like the link provided might be in order. Make sure there are no improper conductive bridges formed between the contacts in the PCB board surfaces. Replacement rubber pads (the part that presses down) are available from any decent service provider (try Syntaur if can't find http://syntaur.com/korg_x.html ) (beneath key) Korg Key Contact Repair Kit Replacement Keys and Parts for Korg Series Keyboards

Some keys on the left side are not giving sound when played and the master volume is loosing can it be fixed or should i have to buy a new master volume


It's about hardwares.
Wiring connection sockets is loose.
Inside the korg PA50,Wiring connection to the keyboard is separate to left and right.
Open/disassemble your korg.
Look for connection cable to the left keyboard.
One end is on the keyboard,the other end is at the mainboard.
Unplug both of it, then mounted again.
For master volume,better buy new one.

Recording problem on pa800


It seems as though it may just be a sample issue.I have had this similar problem before,because each drum hit corresponds to a key on the piano.It could also be the program you are using to open it.
