  • Couple of synths with keys not working - Repair advise please

    I have an old MS-10 with some of the C keys and 1 F that won't play. Anyone know if it's as simple as spraying something on the contacts, or should I send it to someone who can repair it? If so, any contacts of some good repair shops?

    Secondly, I have a older MicroKorg with a top G key that won't play. Works fine with Midi, so I've just used other keyboards with it. Anyone know of someone good that could repair it?

    Thank you!

    It is probably the contacts and yes you can use an aircan spray. The contacts on the MS10 are probably worn. As for the Korg you can probably open it and have a look.

      I don't think they use the infamous rubber dome contacts from the Polysix, Poly-61, etc. but those can be cleaned with denatured alcohol, the kind from the hardware store. (I think isopropyl from the drug store might work but not rubbing alcohol)
