Hello gingertop,

Looks like you may have to reinstall the keyboard software/driver. Try to download the latest version for your operating system from the manufacturer's website. Or post the make and model of the keyboard and I will try to find it for you.

Did you drop any liquid on the keyboard? If that is the case, I am afraid you may have to get a new one...

If your's is a wireless keyboard, it could be weak batteries or interference.
1. Try replacing a fresh set on batteries and make sure they are aligned correctly.
2. Make sure your k/b is as far away from any source of interference. Any electrical device, such as the computer monitor, Zip drives, speakers, etc., can cause interference.Also, using cordless devices on a metal desk or a desk with a metal frame can cause problems. Interference issues can also be resolved by moving the k/b closer to the receiver. You may also want to experiment with different locations and positions for the receiver, including moving the receiver to an upright/vertical position or rotated to a different angle. Another alternate solution is to elevate the receiver by placing it on a CD ROM case or other item.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here. Please do not assign a rating until you feel your problem is resolved. I will try my best to help you further, if need be.

If you are satisfied with my solution or have no other questions, please close the problem by assigning a FixYa! rating for my solution. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

Ctk 810in not able to read or play midi files


If you connect to PC using USB interface, then use a commercial midi player - e.g Melody Assistant or Harmony assistant to play MIDI files to it.

Or else download "SMF convertor" to convert midi files and download compatible file to keyboard.

Hi The first 11 keys of our keyboard have not woked since new. If my girls press the play/pause button then it works. Is this a fault of the keyboard or are we doing something wrong? Thanku


Check the switch to be sure the keyboard is in normal mode and not chord mode. This will cause there to be no sound unless you play a chord on those first 11 keys. Pressing play activates whatever song is loaded at the time, allowing full keyboard use.

I have an older Casio, and the same thing happens all the time, especially when I'm in a hurry and don't check where I put the switch.


Hope that helps!

Keys 7 and 8 from the bass side are lower than


In Casio Chord mode, the bottom keys up to the second F plays Bass Chords. The Keyboard is just putting the keys you play back into bass when you get up that high. If you read along the plastic edge above where they keys come out of the keyboard, it shows you where the Chord keys end and the Keyboard begins. If you want use of all the Octaves, slide the power switch to the first setting (normal).
