Try restoring to factory settings first by turning it on while holding down the Level,Fx,Setupand Trans keys all at the same time. Your key delay function might be out of adjustment. You also have to remember to keep at least one of your thumbs on one of the earth plates. Refer to your owners manual. Start with the factory settings and compare each page of the manual to your instrument until you familiarize yourself completely with the manual. Play the instrument for a while with factory settings until you decide where you have to make changes. Work slowly with each adjustment and the manual until you get what you want. Some adjustments will affect others. Take careful note of what the manual says about temperature and humidity changes.
