    Hi all,

    I have a PC3 in very good physical shape, except it has a few problems I've been trying to resolve. I have 3 keys that sound double notes. When A2 is played, it also sounds F3, and when C#2 is played it also sounds A2. However, when I hook up another keyboard and play the Kurzweil from the midi board, I do not get double notes, everything is fine.

    I took it apart, cleaned the keybed and the rubber contact strips, as well as the circuit board and connections, that didn't resolve it. I downloaded and installed the latest version of the operating system, that also did not resolve it. I have a hunch that maybe replacing the lower keybed circuit board may do it, I don't know.

    I started using a different board last year when I first got the problem, figuring that when I had time I would get it sorted out. I don't think there is a repair shop nearby that has experience with Kurzweil, I live in Western Mass. It's too bad, that PC3 has been awesome, the sounds and the VAST system are unmatched, although I should add that I never had a need to dive too deep into all of what this board has to offer.

    At this point I think I would just rather send it along to a new home. Is there anyone who would be willing or able to take on a little project or maybe someone who might need this for a "spare parts" board? I know I would not be able to get the price I would be able to if those 3 notes would just behave, and I would never try to sell it to someone without them knowing that there is an issue. I figured just post this here first where the "Kurzy people are" before trying Ebay or Craigslist.

    Thanks! Dave
