    My F3 Key no longer plays after 1.5 years old. Cannot find anyone who can or is willing to address the sticking and key quit playing problem. There is a repair manual on a CD selling for $20.00 and has only a copy of schematic and korg manuals that do not address the problem either...

I just changed the key on my Korg Triton Studio 61. It took some time, but it wasn't that hard. You'd better have a power screw driver. I had to take out at least 30 screws.

Do this at your own risk. Don't blame me if you mess up your keyboard. I'm telling you. If you're not that handy, don't try it. Pay attention to detail and be careful.

The Steps that I took

1) Turn your keyboard face down. Make sure you put it on something soft so that you don't scratch the face of your keyboard or damage your knobs or the pitchbender.

2) Remove all the screws on the bottom panel and remove the panel.

3) you have to take the entire keybed out. Lots of screws! I had to remove the "assignable - midi input/output board" to get it out. MAKE SURE THAT YOU DISCONNECT ANY CABLES THAT CONNECT THE KEYBED TO THE REST OF THE KEYBOARD. I had to disconnect the keybed at three different places. These connector cables are NOT strong and if you pull too hard, you WILL break them.

3) Once you get the keybed out, you have to remove the plastic binder that goes at the back of the keybed. It holds the keys in place.

Then Snap the old key out. snap the new key in. Before you unpack your new key, make sure the old one is really broken. I had a key that wasn't broken. It had just come unsnapped. I snapped it back in and it was fine.

Put it all back together again.

I had a broken key before. i got it repaired and it cost me $150. This time I fixed it myself and it cost me $7.50

Unplug the unit. Apply small amounts of isopropyl 99% (or 91% if it contains no emollients) using a dropper or try with a High-Quality cotton swab as you depress and release the key. If it helps, make sure it dries completely. The alcohol will evaporate quite rapidly. Works well for Red Bull and Jaeger Bombs dropped on the keys.
The Triton LE has a similar key structure to the Karma and some Ensoniqs. It is actually VERY EASY to a tech with minimal experience to open it up and clean the contact of a key that has gotten too dirty. Broken keys are also very easy to replace. It is not easy to destroy your keyboard by opening it and taking a look. When you shake it, can you hear a small piece of plastic rattling? Maybe it broke. www dot korgparts dot com has replacement keys and I think even manuals and stuff. FYI - the Triton and LE use different keys.

    Oh, I thought you said LE. The Extreme is simple. The contacts are accessible by removing the back panel only. But you must remove the entire key assembly to replace a broken key. Another thing... after the alcohol, I alway use compressed air to dry it. Hope that helps!

Korg triton studio Change voltage input from 110v to 220v


Safest thing is to use a transformer. If it is only 35 watts, that is pretty small.

Often you can find a small "control transformer" that has dual primaries for 120/240 volts.

Connect it as an "Autoformer". In this connection you would only need one thaat would handle half the 35 watts... However, the smallest is probably 5 watts giving lots of capabilty. Google "autoformer" to see how to connect it. Essentially the primaries go in series and you take you 110 from one-half this combination.

The secondary of a control transformer used this way would NOT be used but just taped for insulation.

You might contact a heat and ventilation company as they may have one... even one that was removed for very low cost.

Triton extreme with no sounding key


The key contact porbably is dirty and will have to be cleaned.

MOST of these contacts are actually a conductiove rubber pill that presses onto circuit traces of a board under the keys. These can get dirty and would involve dis-assembling the unit to get at the silicone rubber contact part and the circuit traces beneath it. Clean both with 99% isoprophyl alcohol and a Q-Tip.
Dis-assembly is a lot of work and requires care. If you are uncomfortable doing it, best to take to a shop.

Korg triton Touchview screen not working properly


The Korg Triton touchscreen has two main parts - The LCD screen and the touch overlay. Between the two is a type of gasket. It is really just an adhesive, but it does help keep out moisture and dust. If you were to remove the screen, you could separate the two parts, clean it and use double-face tape or glue to reattach. You can also get a replacement LCD screen, touch overlay or touch-LCD assembly from a number of places on the internet. They are not cheap, unless you purchase a generic touch overlay or LCD and retrofit.
As for repair in your area... try contacting Korg at http://www.korg.com and look for authorized repair centers.
