The place to get the best help for Kurzweil gear is Sweetwater Sound.
Other than that, always use it in stereo mode with a decent sound system. Always use speakers with at least a 15" woofer and a horn to get the full range of sound it's capable of.

Cuts out on me while playing

If you';re sure it's the instrument, rather than your amp cutting out or the cord being intermittent, do a factory reset. Beyond doing a reset, it's doubtfull this will be a user servicable problem. You need to contact Kurzweil Support. Here is a link to their page

Gets whacky and freezes up every 2-3 minutes

Is this the correct sustain pedal for this unit? It sounds like it should be a momentary button type. I would look into that. Some have a push to work type of switch and some use momentary. If it is, I would open that pedal and clean the switch with contact cleaner, as it appears to be sticking.

I just got this keyboard and want to hear the program # 110 Upright Bass 1 and its Ride Cymbal; I hear the bass, but not the cymbal. The sound is listed in Appendix B on B-14 in the manual. Thanks!

Verify the sound in headphones directly from the unit. The cymbal MAY be panned to one side or the other and will require higher frequency response than some of the piano notes.

Hi, my key F3 (Fmin) has nonfunctional dynamic on my Kurzweil SP2XS. It is still in full loud, only when I really use minimum press - it is quiet (undertone - pianissimo). I never strike on this key more...

The keys have TWO contacts. One closes before the other as you press the key. The processor in the piano MEASURES the time it takes between these closures and uses that as a "key velocity" which is used to control the loudness much like an acoustic piano. When one of the two contacts associated with that key fails, then the key velocity is set to MAXIMUM. The actual failure of the contact can be MECHANICAL or just contamination. The contacts are actually CONDUCTIVE RUBBER "pills" that are pressed onto circuit board traces to complete the circuit when the key presses down on them. The pills are usually in flexible silicone rubber "domes" that also act as springs to help restore the keys when released. Accessing these contacts to clean them is NOT for the DIY person normally. One cleans the pills AND the circuit board GENTLY with 99% isoprophyl alcohol and Q Tips cotton swabs. Opening the piano takes great care and is best left to a repair shop unless one is electronically adept.

I brought my kurzweil sp 3X to a store to have them installed a new board on it, but after they installed the new board in, the character displayed on the screen are all in a weird organize and messed up....

It sounds like the new board and firmware has gone to abbreviations instead of fully spelling it out.

I would complain to the store since they should warrant it if it is a problem... but be prepared to accept that the firmware has been changed and displays differently now.

After transport the keyboard,half of the keyboard below c4 not work.

Probably a cable has come loose inside the unit. The keys are scanned by the internal processor as a matrix of two contacts per key. Often the keyboard is divided into two sections.
You will need to have it repaired or if you are electronically adept, open the case and look for obvious problem.

The contacts of various switches and keys are likely dirty. They are often conductive rubber and need cleaning with 99% isoprophly alcohol and q-tip. Clean both the conductive rubber pill and th circuit board traces they contact.
