Hi, This is very likely to be a dirty key contact.
If the loud key is not touch sensitive or by turning the touch off, if all the keys are the same volume then this points to a dirty key contact.
All the best, Chris the Fader.

You may be running out of internal memory. Try deleting, songs & SMF etc that you may have recorded to INF AFTER moving them to an SD CARD first.
IDES4 can also be used to move user tones etc and do a factory init.

The Yamaha FC-3 uses a TRS (three conductor plug). The PX330 does NOT use TRS jacks for the sustain and sostenuto pedals so they are NOT compatible with the Yamaha FC-3. Therefore I would conclude that continous sustain that the Yamaha pedal would be used for is NOT supported.

Sorry, but Roland uses the opposite sense switch. They use normally closed where Casio requires normally open contacts. SOMETIMES one can rewire the pedal internally, but you have to be mechanically and electrically inclined to do that.

If that is one of the ones with a plastic "hinge/spring", breakage is usually fatal... keep cord and plug for junk box.

I suspect that a NOTE or other selection button is "stuck", if not physically, then electrically.

the startup of most of these devices scans the keyboard and control panel to insure all user inputs from them are at rest. When it sees one stuck, then sometimes the system hangs.

Page E11 of your manual.

If you don't have the manual, download it here for the PX300:

Note... other models will be similar in method for the metronome.

Key contacts have got contamination. They are typically conductive rubber that press rubbber pills against circuit board traces. You can clean them with 99% isoprphyl alcohol and Q tips, but it is a lot of work disassembling and great care has to be used. There are two per key which allows measurement of velocity by the delay between the two contacts.

First verify that the pedal you are trying to use is the correct sense, either normally open as most or normally closed like Roland types. Jacks if physically broken can be replaced. Unit has to be opened and correct jack replaced or in some cases the jack has just broken loose from the solder on the board.

You can try to dry the inside of the keyboard by taking the end of the key board off.
Take a hair dryer and place it at the end of the keyboard and let the air dry out the fluid this may take some time depends on how much fluid you have inside.
Do not use the dryer on high because the heat will warp the bed the keys fit into, this will damage the board which cost about $ 400.00 to repair. Do not turn on the key board while the fluid is still inside this can also damage the keyboard. I belive you have already turn it on because you said eight keys do not work.Do not open the keyboard because the keys will be hard to put back in the grooves the way they were.

You can try and have it repaired at American Perfect Crystal Corporation
Casio Parts Distributor 520 Eight Ave. 2nd Floor
New York, New York 10018

They will charge about 50-89 dollars to check it for you and if its reparable the checking fee will go toward the repair.
I wasted kool-aid in my casio privia while the keyboard was off, but made a grave mistake because I tried to repair it my self with the hair dryer at a high level. I was told that the major board was warp, that being said try not to do self repair.

use the audio output to send the keyboards internal patch sounds, or use a usb midi adapter to use the keyboard to trigger the garageband midi sounds, if the keyboard has a midi output, that is. the usb output requires software drivers to use, and IS NOT mac compatible. You may have to select a midi source in garage band preferences or settings if you are using midi.

Here is a link to the manual: Page E-79 describes the procedure. Here is a link to their support page in case you don't have the CD that was bundeled with the keyboard:

Open the unit being careful of the cables between top and bottom of the unit.

The problem should be fairly obvious. The muted is because teh velocity sensing contacts are not making in the usual time so it acts like you are hitting the keys very slowly.

It will either be something jamming the key or a broken part OR the silicone rubber carrying the conductive pills has broken down.

Before opening the unit VERIFY that your pedal is working with an ohmmeter. Pedals and the cables often fail. Often people try to use a pedal not intended for this synth and they find the pedal inoperative.

You hold down the function key/button and then use the PIANO keys with the "tempo" shown above them.
In that section of the keyboard, the C# key raises the tempo and the C key lowers it. You can also use the numbered keys in that section to dial up a particular value. Hold function down and strike the numbers you want then release the function key/button

I don't believe there is an adjustment for loudness of the metronome other than the overall loudness of the piano..

If it is under warranty then pass it to them for repair and check..

Check if the cble frm the pedal MIGHT be flexing or pulling on the keyboard case when you use it. Such movement COULD vibrate the power connector causing your problem.

Make sure you have the right power supply for the unit as one with too large a hole for the power pin would be intermittent like this.

When you are using midi the sounds from your keyboard aren't sent anywhere. What happens is control messages are sent over the midi cable from midi out to midi in on the other device which must have midi sounds on it (in your case the sound card) to make any sounds. The messages can be things like note on/of or pitch bend etc. If you want to send messages to produce a result on your laptop and still here something you can loop the messages by running from midi out on the device end ( your laptop) back to midi in on your keyboard. A much better explanation is available here: I also signed up to this site (its free) that has great people and lots of info: I recommend downloading Killer Home Recording setting up which at this time is also free and has the best advice you could want in it. I'd also recommend checking out Reaper which is comparable to Reason, Cubase or Protools. If this helps please let me know.
