Keyboard issue

Post by Toby Dammit » Sat Sep 12, 2015 4:13 pm


I received my Prophet 6 #807 in early july in France and was very happy with it. I recorded a lot during the summer and didn't touch it in the last few weeks. It was stored carefully in a case and never moved from my room.

I turned it on today and the C#3 key doesn't work at all. With the help of a fellow Gearslutz member, I tested it with Midi OX: the key doesn't send any midi data, but the voice is working with an external keyboard. I tried to reset the Globals parameters, I tried to reload the OS 1.1.0 via USB this time (I did it via Midi in july). But nothing is happening.

So I unscrewed the keyboard but I can't see nothing and I don't dare to unscrew the circuitry. It sucks big time, I'm really afraid I might send it back to get another one. Mine was perfect to this point, no wonky or wobbly pot or anything. Just this C#3 issue out of nowhere!

Can anyone help? I wrote to DSI support and I'm awaithing an answer.
