    I also have the same problem, would you be able to share the solution that fixed the above problem? Thank you very much. I think the location of the plug is the cause of the problem, as the bracket that holds the plug shatters easily. I am from Ontario, Canada.

Your are likely talking about the input power connector. They are usually a three blade connector in a well.

If the connection is soldered to a circuit board, it has likely gotten bashed in. The circuit board MAY be cracked, but is likely repairable.

Take it to a local electronics repair shop or find one through a music equipment store that deals with pro audio gear.

USUALLY these connectors have "ears" that attach to the case for strength and if the connector has been pushed in the ears likely have broken off. The parts are USUALLY readily available from several sources including Digikey and Mouser.

How old is my Packard piano serial number 130213


Your piano was manufactured sometime between 1925 - 1930. As far as I can discern, it cannot be pinned down any more specifically than that, nor can it be determined where it was constructed. Sorry. . .

How do I restart when Kurzweil Mark 12 1999 piano hangs at waking up scanner message?


Hard reset procedure

1. Turn the Kurzweil off
2. Hold down the KEY START, KEY STOP, and LAYER VOLUME buttons for 5 seconds while powering the unit up, then release
3. Select RUN DIAGS
4. Press the UP arrow until the display reads RAM TEST
5. Press the START/STOP button to run the test
6. When the display reads SUCCESS, turn the unit off and back on. The unit is now reset.
If your Kurzweil still does not come up to the normal screen after this procedure, it will require service.

Tell me some tips and tricks about using the Kurzweil sp3x stage piano


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.

Replacing battery in kurzweil mark 12


As per the manual it says it is located near the power switch. You will need(as per the manual instructions): a screwdriver(Phillips head), a knife, a pair of scissors, and a pair of front end wire cutters as, when shipped from the factory, the three AA batteries were taped or cable tied as a shipping precaution(to keep them from falling out). ***WARNING: MAKE 100% SURE YOU HAVE BACKED UP ALL OF YOUR SOUND PATCHES ON A FLOPPY DISK BEFORE BEGINNING THIS PROCEDURE!!! ONCE YOU START THE REPLACEMENT PROCESS, YOU HAVE ABOUT 30 SECONDS BEFORE THE BOARD LOSES ITS CHARGE AND YOUR SOUND PATCHES GET ERASED FROM THE ROM CHIP.***
Make sure you have all of the needed batteries and tools before beginning.

Hope this helps.

Kurzweil Sp2x


It may be the line current at those venues.

If you have a lightweight switchmode supply, you can try adding some ferrites to the power cord from the wall. but you almost need to switch to an older style heavy transformer supply for reliablity. It is my guess there is a great deal of noise on the supply current at those vehues you have had problems at. That noise does not play well with switchmode.

I have a Kurzweil Mark-Pro TWOi. It takes several minutes to turn on, and keeps resetting and clicking while booting up. My guess is a bad capacitor somewhere. I looked at the power board, and it looks...


I don't know what you "tested" the power supply board with, but I would use an oscilloscope to look at the outputs to see if any of the regulators are drooping. Clicking is a broad term... if it is a relay, it PROBABLY is for speaker protection and senses balance of the power amps.
With a two minute delay, this is PROBABLY a thermal issue... Use freeze mist/circuit cooler to find suspicious parts.

On power up my kurzweil micro piano has no audio out and lwhen plug into amp has a hum.


If the unit uses a wall transformer power supply, verify that it is correct and in good shape. If it is DC and half of the rectifier is gone, then result would be what you are observing.

Kurzweil digital piano unpredictable voices and volume


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.

Kurzweil piano keys are clicking seems to be worn out.


I don't see you doing any damage by having a look but I would get a piano tuner or repairer in to investigate the problem expertly - no slight on you. But if your Church congregation depend on it it's well worth the money.
Good Luck
