The resting (centering) of the PB wheel has a problem. It is LIKELY mechanical in nature. You will have to open the unit to investigate or take in for servicing. If you open it yourself, have two people to help hold the two parts of the shell to avoid damaging the ribbon cables when opening.

Got a Roland GW-8. I've had it for almost a year and a half. The problems consists on the fact that the keyboard gets out of tune while playing. Its not even a full note. After that I have to shut it...


OK... It is literally impossible for the unit to "go out of tune" as it is crytal controlled... HOWEVER what is probablly happening is the PITCH BENDER is getting into the mix somehow.
If the centering on the pitch bend control is sticking or is loose, this would likely be the problem.
Do some tests with the pitch bender to see if you can detect either a mechanical or offset condition of the control.

Yamaha wx5 out of tune (1 tone to low) and pitch bend wheel working up but not down...


As an electrical engineer, I suspect that one end of the resistance element or the voltage supplied to it is broken. This could be a broken circuit trace on a board or failure of the pitch wheel pot. This is iff the device has a center tapped pot. IF IT DOESN"T (schematics are hard to find on this) then the bias setting for the pitch wheel may be wrong. First thing would be to look if the the wheel has slipped on the control shaft.

My tyros 2 has fallen down very bad.now the left bass octave is off pitch(half note Higher) when i play the keybord with the accompaniaments.It works right ONLY when the ACMP is disambled what can i do....


Likely you have damaged the pitch bending wheel and offset it.

Try to pull it on pitch with the wheel... IF YOU CAN, then the alignment of the detent of the wheel has been disturbed and unit will need servicing... There are a lot of screws to open this and several very tender cables that can be damaged... I would recommend you take it to a shop experienced on this keyboard.

When I play the sound come out distorted, like it untunes. any idea what is causing the problem? this is a for a Korg X50 and is only 2 yrs old. not korg Ma30


The manual is at:http://www.korguksupport.co.uk/upload/X50_OpGuide_E1.pdf if you don't have one. Try saving everything you want to save first if you know how to do that. Then initialize the keyboard. Follow the instructions on page 111 carefully. It sounds like you created an undesirable effect and accidently assigned the Pitch Bend Lock function to the effect. This parameter is explained on page 41 under Pitch Wheel Mod Wheel. Hope this helps.

Detuning of Akai EWI 4000s


Are you shure that you aren't touching the bend up plate with your right thumb? This isn't easy detected by sax players which are used to have a thumb rest at exactly the same spot where the bend up plate is. You might switch it off (see manual). With the bend up plate on you should aways use a tight strap which helps a bit to not touch the bend up plate accidentally. I'm still struggling with this occasionally.

Do a factory reset. First try pressing the + and - buttons simultaneously.

Look in your user manual for a complete factory reset and do that.
