Subject description: where is something loose??

This problem started a few months after I bought my G2 keyboard secondhand.

With cables in both Output 1 and Output 2, anything going to Output 1 is several dB lower than Output 2.

And get this, when I hold the keyboard in my hands and put pressure on the bottom plate, Output 1's strength goes to normal. What do you think? Weak connection somewhere? Anyone had this problem? Must resolve prior to selling my unit (for Engine...my live set must be compact)

Yeah, that sounds like a possible a weak connection. Could be just about anything though, a loose wire, a cold solder joint, a hairline fracture of a circuit board trace…

But, are you sure that is not cable/plug problem? In my experience, many intermittent connection problems turned out to be due to that instead. Have you noticed if the headphone output is also affected when Output 1 is acting up?

Same problem here after a fall.
But something is weird : same level in output 1 or 2 if there is only one jack plugged. The level of output 1 increases if I plug output 2...
Output 3 and 4 level are more hot. And phone level and balance is normal.
I'll double check all the solder joints.

Does it make a difference if you use balanced (TRS) or unbalanced (TS) cables?

No, there isn't any diference with symetric cables.
