    New Member, with a Lowrey Majesty

    Hello All, I just acquired a Majesty LX/510, so far so good, however is it normal to have some speaker feedback noise when unit is on and not being played? The feedback isn't extremely loud unless the volume is raised via the foot peddle, but it is noticeable. I also have one upper level key that works intermittently and a few dead peddles that I will have to attend to so I have been reading up on the keyboard contact cleaning process, and advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance, Craig
    P.S. Does any one know when this model was built/sold, Serial# is X510 104J8 13491.

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    Please define 'feedback'. Do you actually mean mains hum, or some other sort of background noise? There is a code for the date in the serial number, I think, but I can't recall how it's worked out. IIRC, the LX series were mid 90s models.
    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

    The LX series were noisy but there is an internal adjustment to minimize it if you are into that sort of thing.
    Getting to the keyswitches or removing a key is not fun. Try playing the key rapidly and repeatedly to see if it clears up. Let me guess- a B, C, E, or F.
    Do not spray any type of contact cleaner onto rubber keyboard contacts.
    Pedals can be damaged contacts, the rubber pads that push on the contacts are out of position, or if the organ is sitting on heavy carpet. Caig Deoxit D5 spray can be used on the pedal contacts.
    Yours was built in September of 1998.

    Thank you all for your responses, the feedback is some what of a humming sound that will get louder if volume is increased.

    Found out where the hum is coming from, don't know what they are but wiggling them a little and taking the clear plastic covers off and giving them a good blow out fixed the problem considerably.

    Those are the speaker relays. They mute the speakers during power on and when headphones are used.
