It sounds like the hard drive has failed... cheap test, get another and reformat the new one. They are so inexpensive now. To avoid losing data, they lock things up if anything goes wrong. The unit probably can't get the ready signal from the drive and freezes...

Led screen is blank

Check the battery condition. Not all parts of the electronics fail to work as batteries fail... it can appear that the batteries are OK but high drain things like LED screens will not work even though other parts are working.

Sound won't come out when we try to play after recording. the thing worked fine for a while and now nothing. then it'll record fine but when we try to play what was recorded we get nothing. keep in mind...

Make sure the memory of the unit is not clear full. Strange things happen when things are full. It MAY look like it is recording, but it really isn't. Other thing is to make sure you have selected a song to play. Review the thing about structure of the files and folders in the manual. It looks like one can get lost in the menus on this unit.

Br8...the enter button has become harder and harder to make nothing. Everything in the unit works fine...except the enter button...which means that I cant record anything at all.

The button is obviously bad... The next thing is to determine what type button is used, It may be a small module or it may be a conductive rubber one. The latter, you take apart and clean with 99% isoprophyl alcohol and QTips. The module type you unsolder and replace the little module.

If all other controls are working, check IF they have a "Contrast" setting for the display. When those are at end of range, the display often is blank.

Original circa 1982 Kurzweil Ensemble Grand upright, has been working just fine until today. At first the (grand piano) sound had just become very distorted or seemed to have messed up sustain or echoing....

Given its age, this unit needs a little TLC. Units of that vintage used some capacitors that may have dried out a bit and need to be replaced. There are also op-amp ICs internally that may be defective. I would suggest a visit to a service shop that works on keyboards as not all do.

Keep us posted.
