Kurzweil Digital Piano (Mark Pro Two-i)
I have a Kurzweil Digital Piano (Mark Pro Twoi) which is two years old. It recently started to show some problems with the sound and at the moment it’s not producing any sound at all. I was wondering if you had any ideas about what is causing this problem or if there is anything I can do to fix it myself.
At the moment the unit lights up when I turn it on but the red lights on the LED screen fade out and it produces no sound at all. It shows signs of electricity at first but none of the red lights are staying on anymore. Before this happened it would turn on as normal but about 10 or 15 of the lower notes would sound much higher, it did not affect all the notes, most of them sounded normal, it seemed to just be random notes. Also if I repeated one of the notes with the problem it would vary from its normal/original sound to a much higher pitch. Also it didn’t just happen on the piano setting, all the instruments had the same problem, even when I played a recording of one of the songs it didn’t sound right. I also noticed when this happened the LED screen would become very faded, and during the first time this problem occurred the LED screen returned to its normal brightness and the problem seemed to have gone away. However, when I returned to it later that day the problem was back and this time it stayed like that permanently.
I wasn’t really sure what to do at this point so after looking online I found a number of ways to reset it, I tried two different ways, both of which made no difference. The first was holding down the global button and the top note of the piano, when this didn’t work I tried another way, which was holding down the global button and pressing the reset button, it then asked if I was sure and I pressed yes twice and it reset itself. Unfortunately neither of these methods worked so when I left it for a while (unplugged) and came back to it, and it had the problem that I described earlier – it turns on but the lights fade away and it makes no sound.
I think that’s all the details I can give, but if you need me to explain anything else about the problem I’ll try my best to make it clearer for you. Thank you, I would appreciate any help you could give me with this problem, I’m not sure how common it is, as I couldn’t find anything about this particular issue online. – Rebecca (Ireland)
