Keystation 61 key won't play

I have a relatively new m-audio keystation 61 es, and the Ab3 works sporadically. The spring action still works, but it doesn't play consistently. If it stops playing, I have to hit the key hard to get it to play. I thing it could be a switch problem. Any way to check/fix it?

Most of these use conductive rubber pills that are pressed onto circuit board traces by the keys.

Clean the board AND the pills with 99% isoprophyl alcohol and QTips.

I have an M-Audio Keystation 61es. Lately I've had random loss of power through the USB2.0 cable. The cable still powers my other M-Audio products, so the issue is the Keystation. It is possible...


I have the 88 key ones and powering via the USB is marginal... IF you have a place for an adapter, use one, as the computer USB is limited to 1/2 amp and OFTEN they limit at a little less and then the keystation is not reliable...

The "G" note below Middle


The key contact has gotten contaminated. They are a black conductive rubber pill pressed against circuit traces on a board bellow the keys. Remove that key and maybe others to get at the contacts in silicone strips. Clean ONLY with 99% isoprophyl alcohol and Q tips. Clean both the pills (two per note) and the circuit traces they touch. You have to release the spring at the back of each key to remove the key.

I just bought an M-Audio Keystation 88ES. I have a used Behringer expression pedal. The pedal works fine in the sustain input, but when I insert the jack in the volume input it cuts all power to the...


If the power goes off when you plug in the pedal, the pedal LIKELY has a short in it between two of the three connections at the plug.

Firat, try putting the pedal plug in BEFORE applying power.

Likely the pedal presents a pot or volume control that will have like 5 volts across it an the wiper returned on the same cable. If the wiring configuration is wrong OR if the plug goes through a period of shorting the 5 volts out during insertion that will cause a problem...

To troubleshoot, move the pedal to half way and these with an ohmmeter for shorts between ANY two of the three connections.

My child jammed something inside of my keystation pro usb connector.... Broke the copper connectors inside.... Whats the best way t go about this ... replace the entire piece or soder in a new copper line


If the traces are lifted, then use jumpers to the points of origin of each trace. Tack the jumpers down with silicone seal or other adhesive.

Replace the connector ifthere is any chance of damage to the connector itself.

M-audio ProKeys 88sx -- all led lights flash, no sound Upon turning the keyboard on, all led lights on the top panel flash. No sound from the keyboard. Is there a re-set button or something?


I have two of these. First thing check your power adapter for output. Just because LED's are on doesn't mean there is correct voltage... There is no reset button... Cycling power serves to reset it.

ALSO check the power input connector... sometimes those get intermittent and break connection due to vibration and initial current surge when turning on.

The prongs on the USB connector broke off. Do we need to replace a board and if so how do we do so?


You can buy new connector and replace broken one. You need skill at soldering and of course have to open the unit to access the broken connector.
