This sounds as though the rubber contact is not working correctly on that key. My KN901 suffers from this and I have to turn off touch sensitivity so that all keys trigger at the same volume. I don't play the KN901 per se these days, I just use it for testing converted styles for my websites.

I've replaced the contacts several times on my KN901 (I have owned it a long time and used it in some very bad environments whilst playing for a circus). I could never repair the contacts by cleaning but I have seen some Youtube videos about how to clean them. I'm doubtful as to whether they can be cleaned effectively. You can't get new contacts as far as I know but they are usually reasonably easy to get from someone who is breaking a keyboard for spares.

Anyway, there's definitely something wrong with that KN2600. It is probably fairly easy to fix but the defect should be reflected in the price. KN2600 is a great keyboard, especially though a nice amplification system.

Hiya, your KN7000 SD Cards will work in KN2600. However, Styles that you save in KN2600 won't work in KN7000. They can usually be HEX edited so that they will work but they won't work without that extra knowledge and effort. At least, that is how I understand things to be.

So, if you keep your SD Cards for the two keyboards separate you will be fine. You can load KN7000 styles and then save them onto a different card (or into a different folder on the same card I suppose).
