Most likely it is not worth it fixing it. You can probably get a new model with more features for about the same price of fixing this one. Let it go anf upgrade. That is the reality of electronics and technology.

Hello my Korg X5D on switching on shows 00:Initcombi0 on top display and "battery low" blinks on lower display, Keys from 33-40 are malfunctioning ( giving odd sound) other keys are working...


There's a watch type battery (flat disc) on one of the boards inside the X5D. This maintains the settings while the keyboard is switched off and could be the whole problem.
The keys are on two different circuit boards connected with a multi-pin cable. If the cable were dislodged I would expect it to simply cut off half the keys but it's probably worth checking.

How hard is it to repair a sticking key on the keyboard. I have a new Yamaha MM6 and it's going to cost me all kinds of shipping charges to exchange it. Was wondering if it would be worth it to just...


It kinda depends on if a hammer is broke or key is broke. Or if a foreign object is stuck in there. Typically not hard if you can remove screws and remember how they go back in. TypicAlly the bottom panel comes off keyboards ( start by removing those screws ) or the top case will fold up ( still bottom of keyboard screws ) then multiple screws to realease keyboard assembly. May have to disconnect some wires/ ribbon cables so have a sharpie ready to label to ensure correct reassembly. Then it's all about if they have separate keys or a keytree or sometimes just removing ba key and reseating fixes sticking problems. Get yourself a can of blow off or contact cleaner just in case. Not sure who locally to you sell parts but you can always call manufacturer and ask who does their distribution for parts.

I own a Yamaha YPT-220 portable keyboard. The "c", "b" and "f" keys (all octaves) just stopped producing a sound. Anyone else have this problem?\r\n The dealer's service...


That's the thing with today's electronic and why warranty length is so important. Where did you buy your keyboard? It's strange that they won't fix it if it's still under warranty. My Casio CTK-2100 came with 1 year free service and they fix one key that stopped function in few days. I'm pretty sure Yamaha has the same warranty length. You sometimes have to be very persistent with them though...

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!

The sustain has a mind of its own!


The pedals are basically switches. You should be able to test them yourself with a volt/ohm meter. They are fairly easy to replace with a little soldering skill.

Does not fully poweer up


I had the same problem. You might try the keyboard on good fresh high quality batteries. If this solves the problem, buy another ac power adapter. Good luck!!
