Someone on our local Craigslist has this ad up for an Alesis Fusion HD which is a fantastic keyboard. I know because I have one. I was thinking of buying one for my daughter. But this one has issues. Does anybody here know how to fix this particular issue with this keyboard. The price is hard to pass up of it can be fixed. Click Here for Alesis Fusion HD8

You can see if there's a hard reset function in your manual. If it's just a factory restore problem, there are usually a series of buttons to press or hold to restore to factory settings. I'm surprised the poster didn't try that, especially if he's a musician. If that doesn't work, I see you're in Nashville. You could take it (or have them take it) to Seale Keyworks to get an estimate on repairs. Only drawback is a $99 diagnostic fee (applied to the repair if you decide it's worth fixing).

I will warn you that if it's a circuit board issue, those aren't usually cheap to replace. If this guy just doesn't know how to do a hard reset, and that's the only problem, it's a steal. Repairs, you never know. Sometimes worth it, sometimes not. I sold my last keyboard to Seale for parts because it was too much to fix it when a circuit board went bad.

It's a gamble, and I think the seller knows it.
