Question about Yamaha MSP5 Studio Monitor Studio Active

1 Answer

What can I do about my flood-damaged monitors?

I have a pair of Studio Monitors that were recently damaged in a basement flood. They still play, but with a significant crackling effect (also, when plugged in, one of the speakers always has the power light on, whether it is switched on or not. I am very partial to them and would refer to restore rather then replace them. What are my options?

I would strongly suggest putting an insurance claim and replacing them. Water damaged cabinets may swell and come unsealed over time, as well as the speakers themselves and the electronics degrading faster than you might expect.

Try swapping the monitors inputs. if the other speaker starts popping on the same output it'll show that the mixer may have a problem. otherwise return for repair.below is a link to the manual. check out the troubleshooting section pg 13

The fault is not with the speakers... It is with the noisy audio system common in computers. Get a decent USB audio interface and use balanced interconnect cables to solve the problem.

Call M-Audio and ask them about it... It is POSSIBLE that your speakers are counterfeit. It has been happening with high value audio equipment. There has been some failures of this product as well. Also contact the company you bought them from. There is a lot of grey market stuff on Ebay... I hope that wasn't your source.

Static and crackling noise from the right speaker


It could be that the input jack is or cable is damaged. The input to the right speaker is from the left speaker via speaker cable. Check that wire and try a new one. All speakers are susceptible to some type of interference. Make sure the cables aren't tangled and free from other powered equipment.

Hope this helps

try hooking headphones to the output and see if the crackling is still there.

then, try it with the speakers, at a lower computer voume level and higher speaker volume level. perhaps the headphone output is too loud and distorting in the speaker inputs.

Check for degradation of C144 a 2200mfd/16volt cap.

This is power source for the 5 volt digital hardware. Check for excess ripple with a scope. The voltage should NOT go below 8 volts. If the voltage dips, the DSP will go nut-case.

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.
