G# and A# Ghost Notes!
First try looking in your transpose settings. Refer to your manual to see if any arpeggiation/unnatural chord settings were inadvertently created by you or made by another user. If you believe it is a software problem you can not solve, back up your memory bank, remove your memory card, and hard reset your keyboard. Insert your memory card and check to see if your problem still exists.
If it is a technical problem, it sounds like you may need to get it checked out by an engineer/repairman. Sometimes when a digital keboard's keys collect too much dust/debris they can trigger multiple keys that aren't being pressed. Think about it like a key getting caught on an upright piano and pulling back the hammer next to the one that was played. A digital piano works off of one or several printed circuit boards or PCBs. The printed circuits usually can not short circuit because the wires and circuits sit in fixed positions. If an alien conductive fiber or series of conductive fibers connects a conducter to another, or if there is any humidity inside your piano it may cause circuits to misfire when a circuit is connected in the area. This could explain why notes you are not playing are being activated in the area in which you are playing.
If you are in a humid area and you suspect that this may be the cause you can attempt to draw out the humidity before getting a an expensive diagnostic done. Find a box large enough to house your keyboard. [If it is on a stand take it off and] place it inside the box. Cover the keyboard with plastic wrap (so as to prevent any foreign objects from getting into the instrument) and very carefully surround the piano with white rice. Remove the plastic wrap, close the box and leave it alone for a few days. The rice draws out any moisture from the electronic components. Very carefully (again so as to avoid getting any rice inside it) remove the keyboard from the box; remove any dust from the body, face, keys, and other components. Try your keyboard now. If humidity/moisture on the PCBs was the problem it should be solved. If not it is time to take your piano for a tune-up.
Hope this helps!
