QS8 keyboard. Why is volume in organ mode much louder than piano mode when I switch between modes without touching volume slide?


On organ mode, in general, almost all brands of the modern keyboard, velocity setting is not enabled. Setting velocity is used to determine how much the level of the sound that follows how strongly you press the keys. It is really just to imitate the sound of vintage organs, which in the past, electronic organ technologi not use the velocity on the keys. So, how strong / slow we press the keys, the sound level will remain the same.
At the Piano mode,modern keyboard using setting velocity. This also to imitate an acoustic piano, which, if we press the keys slowly, the sound level will be slow as well, and vice versa.
So, in your case,at the same volume slider, try to play on the organ modes, note level. Moving to the piano mode and press the keys securely powered (full power). Then the sound level should be equal to the organ mode.
On modern keyboards, also included organ sound that added velocity setting. Usually found on the user bank.

Why is there no sound output?


Hi, I am answering this generically, because there are a few things that can cause this on a lot of keyboards.
  1. Make sure there are no headphones connected. I have removed headphones and the 3.5mm plug comes out leaving the adaptor, this still cuts the speakers.
  2. Sometimes the switch on the headphone socket does not make properly, work the headphone jack in and out a few times.
  3. Local MIDI should be set to ON, if you cannot find this, as it is often buried in some deep menu, link MIDI out to MIDI in with a cable.
  4. Do a reset, be careful as some restore factory defaults and you will lose user presets, so back up, MIDI dump first, others allow resets that do not affect the voices.
  5. connect to your usual software (sequencer, patch librarian, etc) and see if the keyboard has been muted, volume set to zero etc.
  6. Is the volume knob turned up?
All the best, Chris the fader.

Amp turns on but puts out no sound except for faint noise which dies out after a few seconds.


It sounds like a defective/incorrect AC-to-DC adapter may have caused your problem. These adapter come with different output voltages, AC or DC output and different amperage ratings. AC-to-DC adapters list the polarity of the DC voltage as it relates to the DC power plug and you must match both the devices voltage and power requirements. As for the amp...not working on batteries either, I would suspect output transistors or IC.

Marshall Amplification Marshall MG2FX Guitar Combo Amp power turns on but no sound


Hi!
At this point, I would just take it to a tech rather than poke around in it. It sounds like the power section is the problem as you have guessed, but without the technical knowledge you'd be shooting in the dark. That particular amp is right on the line of being expensive enough that would be worth repairing, but you might do just as wel to check Ebay for another used one.
Good Luck!

The keyboard is showing sign of power input but the screen is not lighting and produces no sound


1. Try the volume

2. Your adapter may not be the proper voltage/amperage. If the adapter has ratings listed, make sure they match the keyboards ratings.

3. Try it with the headphones. If they work and the speakers don't, you've narrowed down your problem. There may be some damage or wiring problem within where the board meets the speakers, and/or before processing.

4. Try it with batteries. If that works, you need a new adapter.

My Korg c15s has a lot of grating staticky noises when played ....I'm told it cannot be repaired as Korg no longer makes parts for this model?


I have a Korg C-15s and also experiencing loud crackling sounds when I turn it on. The problems seems to be either the sliding volume control or the amplifier itself. Honestly though, I believe the issue is the volume control. I opened my piano to get a closer look and attempted to clean the contacts on the volume. Unfortunately after cleaning the contacts, the crackling sounds became somewhat worse. After I turn the piano on, the volume control is generally rendered useless......volume set to low volume and the noise is quite loud and other times the volume control is set high and get very low volume crackling noise. No real consistency. The noise does diminish after a few minutes but so does the piano sounds to an inaudible level. There were a couple of instances where I turned it on and surprising enough, no no noise and perfect sound. For these reasons I believe the issue is within the volume control and not so much the amplifier. I have an electronics background and noticed that the volume control is very unique in design and is not something that can be substituted with another volume control from other sources.

My recommendation is to check the sound quality of the audio from the RCA L/R audio outs on rear of the piano by connecting to a stereo receiver. If it sounds fine you're in luck. If the crackling sound does not diminish after a few minutes like mine does, I would suggest disconnecting the internal speakers and using the audio out only. You can connect a pair of studio monitors or high quality computer speakers, preferably with a small subwoofer to deliver the full audio range and deeper tone of a real piano. I'm currently using a basic pair of Logitech computer speakers and is quite acceptable until I can afford a high quality set of monitors or relocate my piano closer to my high quality Yamaha receiver.

I hope this info helps a bit.

No sound from Yamaha keyboard


Hello,

The keyboard takes only a specialist to fix the problem. Its also very delicate. The best you can do is to reset it and if the resetting does not work, then you will have to take the keyboard to a repairman to fix it for you.

Firstly, connect a headphone to the keyboard and observe if it will give a good sound. if it gives a good sound, then it means the speaker for your keyboard may have loosed contact or gotten burst.

But if it does not make any sound with the headphone, then it might be a board or sound ic problem. You can also try resetting the resetting the keyboard to default.

Turn off the keyboard, press and hold the last white key and turn the keyboard on while still holding the white key. The keyboard will then restore to its factory default.

If that doesn't solve the problem, you will have to dismantle the keyboard, use a meter to read the panel/board in order to detect the fault and do every necessary replacement. Also, you can do a deep cleaning, by cleaning all the dust in it.

If you can't do any of this, then you will end up taking is to a repairing man to fix the problem for you.

Good luck.

Headphones don't work right.


It might be that the contacts for the headphone jack is very dirty. Try using a cotton swab with a wd-40 on it to clean the inside contacts on the jack.
