Basically my MPK49 has started having a few problems. It has started sending out midi signals without me touching it. It is only doing it with the faders and pots in on the top right of the keyboard at the moment. Just wondered if maybe someone else may have experienced it and know what to do to fix it? Akai just said send it for a service. As to be expected but often these things can be done yourself if you know how so I am just looking for some advice.

Probably dirty contacts. You might be able to open it up yourself and give the contacts a clean with a contact cleaner. It might be a bit fiddly though. Might be worth taking it to that place that has replaced Sound Control/Reverb; they might have an engineer in there.

A can of compressed air works a treat on some things like this too. They cost about 5-6 but will literally blow all the dust / dirt away. If you haven't used it before, give it a try - you need to a straw to localise the blast (a bit like WD40).

I was having channel bleed on my dj mixer cross fader but it's all good now after using the can of air.
