When turned on, the message displayed something to the effect of : "Memory Lost, please restart". However, after restaring the keyboard, I recieved the same message.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o></SPAN></P>

After doing this, the keyboard, Leslie switches, vibrato/chorus switches, and drawbars all seemed to function properly...as well as the volume, reverb, and overdrive controls. <o></o></SPAN></P>

    Sounds like it needs a reset. Have you looked for how to do that in the manual? (Hold certain buttons while powering up kind of deal)</p>

    Have you had any recent luck with your unit?</P>


    I just read your post and have the same organ sitting dead in my garage with (I think) the same problem. I was unaware of the battery. I'll crack the case this weekend after looking at the message on the screen. I haven't used it for 6 months and have been hauling around an M3 on wheels since. I'm used to the M3 now but it's a pain to haul just for practice. </P>


    Oh is the battery a common item or does it have to be ordered? I'll keep you posted after I replace the battery and find a reboot process.</P>


    Good luck with you XK-2. </P>
