Won't load to default


Hi Lloyd,

The introduction in the manual warns that you should ask your dealer or store in order to change the batteries. I'd suggest seeing if they have any advice.

That said, how are you trying to default the settings? I've copied the two ways below. Maybe try whichever one you haven't yet. I hope this helps.

Manual: http://hammondorganco.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/XK-1manual.pdf


Default #1:
In this mode, you can return entirely or partially to the default setting as set at the factory.

To locate this mode:
Touch the [MENU/EXIT] button for the MENU display, select PAGE D by the [PAGE] button, and then touch the [3] DEFAULT button. To initialize each parameter, touch the button and then [4] OK

1. ADJUST PRESET
  • Initializes the content of the Preset Key [B].
  • If the Drawbar Control mode is at "UPPER A#/B", the content of [A#] is also initialized.
  • If you do this operation before you start a new setting, you can start from the factory
  • setting.
2. PRESET
  • Initializes the content of all Combination Presets.
3. GLOBAL
  • Initializes the Global Parameters such as Master tune or assignment of the Foot Switch.
4. LESLIE
  • Initializes the content of all Cabinets.
5. ALL
  • Initializes all parameters of this keyboard.
  • If anything caused an unstable trouble on this keyboard system, the trouble would be cleared.

Default #2
:
Please perform the following steps to reset the XK-1 to the initial default setting.

1. Switch off the power of the XK-1.
2. Hold the [REC/JUMP] Button, and switch on the power.
3. Continue to hold down / Keep pressing the [REC/JUMP] Button until "Loading Default..." appears on the Display.
4. After 5 seconds if everything is in order, PLAY Mode appears on the Display. (Completed)

3. Continue to hold down / Keep pressing the [REC/JUMP] Button until "Loading Default..."
appears on the Display.

My m3 makes no sound starts and runs perfect tubes are all lit


Sometimes people are fooled because some tubes have TWO heaters in them and you have to check that BOTH are lit. Your first thing is to get a schematic. Try the "Captain Foldback" site for Hammond schematics. You can find it with Google.

Take it to the store and have them test it... don't be surprised if there is a simple thing that has been overlooked. If it doesn't worked there, it needs to go in for servicing so that is the logical course to follow anyway.

It is probably so kind of interference from the rotary switches. It is in the shielding of the Hammond organ. You might try some aluminum foil around the unit certain areas at a time which will give you an idea if it will help and what areas need to be shielded. If that does the trick you install the aluminum foil shield inside the chassis. Hope that helps. Let me know..

Servicing is obviously required. By the symptoms, I think a bad electrolytic capacitor is the likely culprit. One other possibility is contamination, including an insect has gotten into the works and causing a short at some point.

G key not sounding


If it is a single key, then the key contact either needs cleaning or there is a crack in the circuit board with the contacts. These likely are conductive rubber contacts. Take them apart and clean with 99% isoprophyl alcohol. They are usually a black rubber "pill" in a silicone rubber dome that is pressed onto traces on a circuit board. Clean both the pi;ls and the circuit board. Do all thekeys at the same time to avoid having to take apart to do others later.

If ALL G sharps keys are dead, then either a wire is broken or circuit board connector or a crack exists in the board. Cracks in the board is USUALLY fatal.
