Hello Friends,

Could anybody help me please?, I’m getting some troubles with the touch sensivity of some keys in my MO6. When I press softly the B5 key, it sounds very loud, like I have played with all my force, I have been living with this problem for around some mounths, but yesterday others keys began with same problem! especially F#2, so now I can´t play because some keys sound extremely loud when I touch them very softly.

These problems just turned up suddenly, the keyboard was in the stand one day, and in the other day the problems started. In both cases the previous day I was playing for around 4 initerrupted hours.

The touch sensivity system seems to be damaged, is there something I can do to rapair this?.

Please help me, thanks a lot

Roberto

Hi, I have the same problem with my MO6 too.  i’ve had my keyboard for a year.  It started right before the year mark.  First my e flat, then the b flat, then 4 or 5 other keys started ringing loud no matter how sensitive I played.  Please let me know what the service guys say or how u fixed the problem. Let me know.

I would probably do a system factory reset - after saving all of your data of course. Then, if the problem persists it is probably a mechanical or electrical failure and you would need to have it serviced.

Is Resetting the User Memory to the Initial
Factory Settings the same as system factory restore? I tried resetting the user memory to the factory settings.  Still same problem. The velocity is ringing out on max on the same 5 keys

Hey friends, I solved the trouble of touch sensivity defective, well the keyboard just was needing a cleaning maintenance, when you push a key it makes contact through a rubber board inside the machine, so because of use, this rubber board gets dirty in the conctact places whith the key, you just have to clean it (in the rubber board), or buy another rubber board (I don´t know its axactly name) and replace it, of course, you need to open your machine, be careful with all the screws, cables, boards and switches inside just to put together all parts again!. I did it because I don´t have a yamaha service office near. Now I realized that I need to buy as a spare one of these rubber boards to replace it in a future.

Well I hope I could help you!

Regards

Roberto
