Help! Foot Pedal 2 Stopped Working
« on: April 28, 2021, 11:43:43 AM »
I have a footswitch controller connected to each of the two sockets on my s970. They've been there since I bought the instrument. Foot pedal 2 has stopped working while I was playing. The fault is not the Pedal because it works OK in pedal 1 socket. Also the pedal connected to socket 1 doesn't work in socket 2. The fault lies in socket 2.

Turning the machine off and on has no effect.

What do I do, please?

Try a soft reset by holding down the rightmost white key while powering up the keyboard. But first check if the settings of pedal 2 has been changed for instance by a registration. Press direct acess and step on pedal 2 to see if the pedal is set on the function you want.

Brilliant. It was the reset that did the trick. Iíve yet to fully test it, but first appearances look good. Iíll report later.

In the meantime - thanks, my friend.

Alan,

Did you load a registration in your keyboard that caused the foot pedal assignment to change?  That's usually what happens when people load a 3rd party registration.

I don't know what a third party registration is. I wasn't doing anything different from my usual activity. The pedal affected is the one I usually use to proceed through the registration memories that I've saved.

A "third party registration" is a registration you got from a third party. Downloaded from the internet, sent to you by a friend, etc.

Very useful at times.

Thank you for the explanation. Iíve never used a ready-made registration. Iím not sure how Iíd go about it.

Everythingís working normally now, so Iíll treat it justĒjust one of those things.Ē My thanks for your help and encouragement.

I am trying to assign Foot pedal 2 to turn harmony on and off. As soon as I change instruments it stops working and I just hear a cluck coming from my speaker when I depress the pedal? What am I missing?

Hi Plumloco,

Welcome to the PSR Tutorial Forum!


Please answer the following two questions first:

1. Which keyboard model do you have? (You posted here on the S970/770/670 forum, but also asked the same question on the SX900/700/600 forum: >>> https://www.psrtutorial.com/forum/index.php/topic,57358.msg475239.html#msg475239 )

2. What exactly do you mean by "change instruments"? (You are probably talking about registrations, because manually changing the voices does NOT change the pedal settings.)


Best regards,
Chris

They always said: "This is not possible!"  Then someone came and - just did it!

Never put the manual too far away.  There's more in it than you think!
