Dead keys on keyboard unless plugged in with headphones

None of my Keys work on my SX PX 222 keyboard when played. although when you plug headphones into the device and continue to play, it works fine. Could it be something wrong with the speaker?

Re: KN6000 Floppy to USB Upgrade

Re: KN6000 Floppy to USB Upgrade

I have successfully fitted a Gotek drive to my KN5000 and also to a Yamaha PSR9000. You don't need a 2Gb USB stick, but anything over is wasted, so don't worry. I use a 4Gb on mine and a 32Gb is used on my friend's PSR9000.

One more question: You specify a 2GB memory stick. I saw that number someplace else, too. Actually, 2GB thumb drives are hard to come by right now. Most are 16GB and above, on up to 512GB. The 2GB is more than sufficient to hold 1,000 floppies, is th…

I have never known that happen but is it possible that you have no custom styles in your keyboard and that is causing it to go blank whilst it is searching in vain?
