Question about Korg Legacy Collection
I have a few white sticky keys on my korg triton extreme. Can anybody help? please
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.
