Question about Casio Music

2 Answers

Hi, when I play a chord on my Casio-656 keyboard it sometimes sounds out of tune - if you hit the chord again it plays correctly. Is this a fault or a setting? It seems to be intermittent so that would suggest perhaps a fault. It's often the first time you play the chord that this fault occurs, then it's ok again for a while. I've only started using the keyboard and have no instructions! Any help would be gratfeully received - thanks

This type of distortion in keyboards is created sometime by combination of aftertouch used with sound effect. Switch off aftertouch for sounds like piano. I never used Casio 656 - if there is no aftertouch function then check chorus setting for particular sound - ex for piano chorus shall sound like whipping Piano timbre is sensitive for velocity and it may be the reason of change in perception.

I would check your fingering... You MAY be late in hitting a particular note and the using auto chord... this can cause the problem. Another thing is if notes are hit with different velocity that can affect the sound. Sometimes certain voices have VELOCITY switching which actually changes the voice depending on the velocity you hit a note.

Casio LK-100 keyboard is turning off often when chords are played, esp in lower octaves - seems like a short. Where might the short be - way to fix without taking the whole keyboard apart?


Sounds like a lack of power from the external "wall wart" power supply. Is it the correct one that can supply enough current for a chord to be played? (a chord will play more notes at the same time & pull more power from the supply in order to make the sound(s)) If it's the correct power supply or one of the correct current rating check the cable & the connector both at the end of the cable & where it plugs into the keyboard. Perhaps the lead has been tugged accidentally? / Damaged in some way? Turn the volume down a little & see if that helps - that will confirm the power theory :-) Good Luck!

Hi I have a Technics PR-305 Digital Piano, that I had since the fall of 2001. I went to play on it on it today Some of the notes in the chords weren`t sounding.


Sometimes the contacts under the keys get dirty and must be cleaned. To do this you have to disassemble the keyboard,
carefully remove the PCB under the whole keyboard, locate the not sounding notes, remove tre siliconic stripe with the contact and gently clean the inside black conductive rubber pills with a cottonfioc and alcool.
Also clean the contacts on PCB.

Yamaha psr 1000


Hi
I'm not sure I completely understand your problem but......it sounds like you might be in "Fingered On Bass" mode. This means if you play a chord like F using the notes FAC- if you play them in 2nd inversion (so the order is CFA) the psr-1000 will make the note "C" the bass note. In this mode if you played ACF then "A" would be in the bass part. Change to "Fingered Chord"-this will enable you to play any chord with the tonic (the name of the chord) F whether you play FAC, ACF or CFA in the bass part. I don't have access to a psr-1000 but often with Yamaha instruments this can be changed by pressing and holding the "Auto Accompaniment" button. I hope this helps.

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!

Casio tonebank ct700 no sound from chords only whilest on fingered chord please advise


More info. If you are chording on the left half of the keyboard, SOMETIMES they allocate or have the option to select a different voice for the part where chords are played. For these, you have to ALSO select a voice for that half of the keyboard. If you don't select a voice, then you would not have anything sounding.

No chord will play while in fingered mode it is a casio tonebank ct700 model


NORMALLY "fingered" mode means that you have to "finger" the chord, that is, play all the notes of the chord. It sounds like it IS working as designed.

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).
